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 8C 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.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 this is one of the best belgian strong ales, and one of the best beers period, that I have ever sampled. Extremely well-balanced, smells and looks great, wonderful offering from de dolle.

jdjuice (498) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle at Monks. Pours a dark reddish. I forget the aroma, but the flavor was one of the most unique Ive ever tasted. It was very malty and roasty at first, almost smoky. The following flavor was interestingly sour, and was quite unexpected but very pleasant. It was also the most carbonated beverage Ive ever had, which was another unexpected but delightful twist present in this beer. A+++++ WOULD DRINK AGAIN A+++=

Bottle at Dulle Griet. Black with a very large beige head, mostly lasting, good lacings. Aroma moderate malty (brown sugar, coffee) and hoppy (distinct). Flavor moderate sweet and bitter, in a good balance. Medium body, soft carbonated.

pivnizub (10308) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle (thanks to the semi-franconian bierkoning !) Hazy, mid-sized creamy off-white head; distinctive fruity, a bit vinous nose; sweet flavour, full bodied; drier, a bit chocolatey finish with a distinctive bitterness in the aftertaste. A well made, full flavoured brew !

Wow, now this is how a "sour" beer should taste... just a touch of it. Poured a beautiful ruby-brown slightly cloudy color with some dark sediment that fell to the bottom of the glass as the carbonation bubbles travelled upwards. The head was pillowy fluffy and gorgeous, without being a nightmare to pour. The aroma was of cherries, apples, and spices. The flavor started much like a Trappist ale with some fruits and maltiness most prominent, even a candy sugar sweetness. The finish was tart with sour apples and cherries coming through, reminiscent of a mild lambic feel. Very nice.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2006
A special beer. Sour fruity start - very sparkling feeling. Full fruity flavour. Not much aftertaste, and not at all alcoholic.

Cap says SPECL BREW2. Pours dark mahogany and extremely active into a tulip. Mounds of off-white microbubbles that take their time to recede. Yeast, fig and date notes. Upfront sour cherry and sweet caramel with a dry, tangy orange rind finish

rederic (3293) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Hazy dark reddish hue, with a frothy tan-colored head, with a spicy liquorice nose, with a yeasty accent, brown sugar, roasted malt, hint of fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, with a warmth alcoholic note, liquorice accent, roasted and caramelized malts, hint of chocolate and fruitiness, leading towards a faint bitter and warming finish.

beerbiere (101) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2006
Almost no head, low carbonation. Murky burgundy color, not that inviting. The nose however, is promising: raisins, plums, cherry, red wine and caramel. Flavor is predominantly sweet and on a lesser scale sour. The tartness again is reminiscent of cherries. The mouthfeel is round and sustains long after swallowing. I cant think of any other brew to compare with... unique!
