Oerbier means original, from the spring. This beer has been brewed in small scale (5 gallons). Oerbier is brewed from no less than 6 malts. Poperinge Golding hops in flowers and a special yeast which makes it a little tart, especially with aging. At the brewery we have excellent cellars which have a constant temperature of 8°C and allow Oerbier to age at its best. After a couple of years Oerbier tastes like it should have been blended with wine … Oerbier has been refermented in the bottle and contains a layer of yeast, having vitamins B. NAT en STRAF on the glasses means WET and STRONG, a warning for the 7.5 vol. alcohol content. The little person on the glasses is the Oerbier man, a simple creature who holds a brewers fork in his right hand, symbolizing the work and science, but looking to the other side, the result of all this, the glass of (Oer)beer. The artwork on the poster is a wallpainting found in Spain, (Altamira) and is considered by art lovers as being the best prehistoric art work (30,000 years BC). On the other hand we have Oerbier started in 1980, going on with the tradition.

Shark_Pants (504) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2015
Ruby brown with large frothy tan head. Aromas of dried dates and figs, toffee, some alcohol. The taste is well balanced between sweetness and bitterness - plums, cherries, dates, dark candi sugar, some vinous notes, acidity and sour hints. Full bodied and lively on the tongue. Very interesting and enjoyable belgian strong.

mgajdaczewa (1136) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 25, 2015
W aromacie zaskakująco mało się dzieje, karmel, przyprawy, nieco suszonych owoców, mało intensywnie. W smaku raczej wytrawne, suszone owoce, karmel, na finiszu fajnie odkłada się kakao, co jest najmocniejszym punktem tego piwa. Nieco kwaskowe, przez co raczej pijalne. Brakuje treści, alkohol rozgrzewa, ale nie irytuje. Niezłe piwo, ale oczekiwania były wyższe.

Ysok02 (537) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015
Robe brune reflets ambrés. Nez sur les épices, le malt, le caramel, la levure. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, fraîche, épicée, belle structure et longue finale acidulée et amère. Une bière puissante que je serai curieux de regoûter avec un an de cave.

martin00sr (1811) - Haderslev, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle. Hazy, dark red brown. Aroma has fruity malt, yeast and bananas, evident alcohol. Dried fruit flavour, caramel, warming alcohol and some sour notes well balanced by the sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel, tickling carb. Lovely BSA.

MonsterMagnet (753) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle, pours dark brown with a beige head. Slightly sour aroma with a bit of barnyard, somehow not fitting. Taste is completely different. Lots of dark cherries, dates, plums, dusty hay, castor sugar, cocoa, sweet overripe apples. Sweet, nice bitterness, light sourness, lively carbonation, light vinous. Odd one.

Icedwarf (926) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en krachtig, licht zuur met iets van caramel, bittere chokolade, rook en zuur fruit. Verder sporen van anijs. Geslaagd bier.
