COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. For more information on Oerbier's recent recipe history, see the following article: http://www.bunitedint.com/Products/de_dolle/oerbier-re_evolution.html

Het is een donker roodbruin bier met een volle schuimkraag. Het heeft een moutige sterke smaak.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Kauf bei Getränkefeinkost). Eigentlich heftiger Alkoholanteil. Ziemlich strong.

Bottle @McHendos (Zoltan Tasting). Pours brown, big white head. Nose licorice, fruity, apricots, dates and figs, slight caramel. Taste is very much the same but big pineapple. Also right at the end a touch sour.

VueltaBirrista (127) - Murcia, SPAIN - SEP 9, 2017
De color rubí con una generosa corona de espuma color beis, al acercártela a la nariz se aprecia claramente la carga de levadura de la que os hablaba por un lado y frutas dulces por otro. Bien carbonatada, la Oerbier tiene cuerpo medio, una textura aceitosa y un riquísimo paladar. En boca se aprecia desde picantes y especiados a dulces con recuerdos de fruta, pasando por  chocolate y caramelo. Conforme se va calentando, aparece su carácter licoroso y al final de la copa su potente graduación se ha hecho ya muy evidente. Una indiscutible obra maestra que por supuesto recomiendo a todos.

datrael (542) - Krakow, POLAND - SEP 6, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 W aromacie wiśnie w czekoladzie, estry, fenole, czerwone owoce. Z wyglądu ciemny brąz wpadający w czerń, piana beżowa, gęsta, zbita, bardzo obfita. W smaku praliny, wiśnie w czekoladzie, nuty słodkiego czerwonego wina, nalewki wiśniowej, do tego nieco nut chlebowych, zbożowych, estry, rodzynki. Bogate, ale bardzo pijalne, słodkie, na finiszu wyczuwalny i lekko piekący alkohol. Ogólnie bardzo dobre piwo, pijalne a przy tym złożone.

Dark brown, hazy with a beige head. Sweet aroma, a mix of slightly old apples and prunes. Taste spicy, sweet, fruity and complex. Fantastic at the end with balance between sweetnes, slight acid and bitterness. One of the best dark beers I ever had.

The bottle I’ve had tasted just like dirt with some spices and caramel. Bad batch, I hope.

Brune très foncée, opaque. Mousse beige très abondante, aérée, anarchique. Aspect humide. Nez fort sur le caramel, le toffee et les fruits noirs mûrs. Une bouche très complexe : l’attaque est douce et fruitée (fruits noirs). Monte ensuite une petite amertume et une aigreur en parallèle. Finale finement acide, qui rince le palais et coupe la chaleur alcooleuse. Biais vineux typique dans cette bière. Corpulence moyenne, carbonatation moyenne à forte. Bière brune fruitée et douce, mais moins sucrée que beaucoup d’autres brunes, avec une légère amertume et une fine acidité vineuse.

Cristobal37 (1176) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle. Deep dark brown, almost no head. Big sweet prunes and sugary malt aroma, reminds me of a wee heavy. Medium body, taste is sweet sugary malts, plum, chocolate cake, some old vanilla wood, spices. Spices and malt last a long time on the palate. Chock full of flavor and a hint of warming booze at the end. Really well done and balanced, but for whatever reason it wasn’t something I’d drink over and over again. I might compare it to Pannepot, which for me was superior.
