beton (742) - Tarnobrzeg, POLAND - MAR 11, 2018
Edycja 2015. Brunatna barwa, wysycenie średnie. Pachnie od początku uwodzicielsko. Winny, octowy aromat z elementami owocowymi w typie wiśni, ponadto wraz z czasem pojawia się dębina, marcepan, orzechy włoskie. W smaku odczucie musowania, odrazu pobudza ślinianki. Sporo smaków w odbiorze. Wiśnia, ocet balsamiczny, całość więczy szlachetny, przyjemny alkohol. Przyjemne, sprawiające dużo radości podczas degustacji. Ostatnimi czasy Flanders to ulubiony styl. Oerbier w porównaniu do Consecration od RR sprawia wrażenie ciut bardziej ułożonego piwa w kwestii balansu.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2018 Swietny balans. Delikatna kwaskowatosc, przyjemna octowosc, lekkie migdały. Bardzo gładkie, alko mega ukryty. Piękne

Slightly murky brown with a couple of fingers of a quite dense and nicely persistent off-white head that shows good lacing. Quite a surprising head for the abv. Vivid and complex aroma. A soft malty and sugary feel (caramel, chocolate, brown sugar) with lots of dark/dried fruit notes and delicate sourness, with a vinous/oakish feel and slight vinegar. Taste follows the aroma with quite high sweetness, nicely cut by hints of sourness. It has a warming/alcoholic feel but overall the high abv is tremendously well hidden. Surprisingly medium bodied with average carbonation, resulting in a nice smooth and soft, slightly sugary mouthfeel. It has great complexity but it goes down so easy for such high gravity. Seriously good.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 2015 bottle. Pours a dark opaque reddish brown with a slowly fading light beige bubbly head. Aroma is of vinegar, dark fruits, plums, raisins, treacle, nuts, biscuit. Taste is of vinegar, dark fruits, dark grapes, acidic, caramel. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

The beer was so well balanced in taste. Great mouthfeel. I love this brewery in general. Really worth it. That's all folks!

EdKing (2700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Bottle from Colour is murky brown with reddish shades and a thin off white head. Nose is big malt vinegar sour, balslamic vinegar sour, brown apple flesh, white apple vinegar. It’s a lot of malty vinegary sour. Some barbecued meat and pickled vegetable. Taste is pickled chutney, malt vinegar, red wine vinegar. Super sour! Red wine vinous.

biilz (334) - SPAIN - DEC 27, 2017
Запах породистый, приятный. Что то между Бельгийским и кислым элям. Вкус очень тяжелый, даже слишком. Также пиво безумно газированное. Из из этой крепости и тяжести слегка теряется сам вкус, который весьма приятен. Чувствуются ягоды, квашенная кислота и кислота яблок. Хотя при этом мне показалось что в этом пиве кислота вкуса слишком велика.

spacecube (1822) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2017
Bottle, pours deep red brown with a foamy off white head. Aroma is sour cherry, red grape and cherry yoghurt, caramel and chocolate malts, body is light medium, texture is creamy, subtle yet complex sweet taste with airy palate leading into short sour dry finish.

Cristobal37 (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 25, 2017
2015 vintage. Deep reddish brown, nice layer of beige head. Awesome de Dolle yeast aroma, sour apple vinegar and wood barrel on the nose. Warming, well carbonated, medium sour, more apple vinegar and wood chips. Finish is very malty, doughy, some dry red wine. Complex and really balanced. I wasn't the biggest fan of the regular Oerbier and in fact this is not my alltime fav either, however the oak barrel aging adds a lot of dimension. A nice one to try, especially if you like a red wine character in a strong ale.

vincentvega72 (999) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Amberkleurig, off-white schuimkraag. Mooi zurig aroma. Vineus, houterig, zuurtje, zoetje, eik, rood fruit. Diepe volle smaak, lange afdronk. Zeer geslaagd bier.
