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

330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer (£4.20):
An outstanding offering from De Dolle, this one is easily the best of the three beers that I've tried from the brewery so far & one that was a complex but balanced tasting beer, opening with a lot of dark fruits & sweetness but never overpowering. It was easy to drink despite the strong alcohol content & there was some nice caramel malts further on that alongside the lighter fruits kept things interesting from the start. A great beer that I'll definitely be on the look out for again.

jjsint (3789) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2018
Bottle from Best One, Bedford. Reddish brown, hazy with a khaki head. Smells of dates, oak, forest floor, medicinal herbs. Sweet taste at first, but when that clears it's got an earthy sour tang. More stone fruit and dusty hop in the finish and aftertaste. Full, oily body. Low carbonation. It's really odd, I want to like it more than I do but I can't really get into it.

Slightly vinous, malty aroma. Taste is medicinal, dark fruity. Too much medicine.

brandy cools (44) - antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2018
Interesting aroma. the malts are definately there, something of liquor and candi-sugar in the back and forest herbs as well as something of red fruit . A nice very dark reddish color, and a lot of foam that lasts. the taste has much of the malts again. I sense liquor again but less of the candi-sugar here. Also the fruit and the herbs again. there 's a malty bitterness that reminds me of very dark chocolate and espresso. And there is sour in the back as from fruit, red fruit like berries or something. When the beer gets a bit more of warmth i notice the chocolaty or espresso like bitternes also in the aroma. the bitterness in the taste lasts long time in a bit wry but not unpleasant way. I like this beer well, not as much as the "Stille Nacht" -beer of the same brewery but close enough. The "Dolle Brouwers" tend to make beer a different experience, something away from the other stuff out there. Maybe not anybody's thing but i'm certaintly in for it.

Turboninja (1021) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2018
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Strong, soft nuances of dark fruits like plum and fig, toffee. Some dark sugar. Earthy and a bit funky feeling. Some boozy aromas. Balanced. Wide/medium taste spectrum and medium/short aftertaste with slightly sour dark fruits. Overall, reference quality with soft touch. A bit sterile and non distictive character though. 8 4 7 5 16

barrelagedluv (105) - Pittsburg, California, USA - JAN 2, 2018
The murky, mahogany hues ale pours with so much frothy foam it spills out a tulip glass. Aroma is yeasty and funky. The flavor is malty, syrupy and heavy. Notes of brown sugar and coffee. Finish is particularly long and nuanced, nutty and boozy, yet rounded by the aging. An exceptional traditional abbey style. Cheers DD Brouwers!
