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

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2006
The foamy tan head collapses quickly into a murky deep mahogany liquid. Vinous nose with hints of molasses and dark fruit. Highly carbonated, fizzy medium mouthfeel. There is a definite sour underpinning to flavors of brown sugar, raisins, prunes, and some spice. A few bitter flavors begin to come through, but the sour character persists well into the finish. This would certainly be a good one to set down for a couple of years.

This beer is a deep dark brown, with a frothy/foamy, almost creamy head. It smells "dark" but with hints of fruit, and is highly carbonated (as is par for the course). It sports a clean aftertaste, but almost like "bitter fruity."

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
[ Bottled ; chilled ; recent ; at LAutre Oeil in Aylmer ]
Fully diminushing average creamy tan head that tops up a muddy brown with red hue body. Moderate lacing. A lot of thin particules. Bottle conditioned. Aroma is heavy brown sugar while hops are barely noticeable spruce and yeast is moderate dough. Also, there are evident notes of strawberry-like aroma and many differents spices. Initial flavor is heavily sweet and leads to a licorice development. Finish is short and alcoholic. medium to full body.. creamy texture... Soft carbonation..
Another good but classic belgian

From the bier rouge family. The brewery De dolle Brouwers make charesmatic beers period. Brown red beer with white spicy head. It is very sour and is good to keep in the basement a couple of years since it then change character and becomes more sweet (like Stille Nacht). The bier rouge style aquires a couple of tastings before you fully can appreciate them (rodenbach, duchesse de bourgogne etc.) Fantastic exciting!

larsga (7331) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2006
Enormous, creamy tan head. Dark red body. Sourish, spicy, unclassifiable aroma with signature de Dolle yeast profile. Deep, intense, sourish licorice taste with strong spicy notes, some cinnamon. Smooth and harmonic, clings to the inside of the mouth. A great beer!

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2006
Draft. Medium brown pour with a thick white head. It took the bartender three glasses to let it settle down to get me my pint (Note, I was impressed at how easily he worked the pouring out.) The aroma malty, with some dark fruit hiding in there too. The taste was amazing. Very complex, this beer changed over the course of my pint.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Bottle (new version). Huge fluffy head which collapses after a few minutes. Interesting vineous aroma with hints of vinegar and marmite. Flavor is wonderfully complex with a huge sweet malt body balanced by slight acidity. Licorice, chocolate and horseradish in the flavor. Very carbonated, which makes this beer hard to drink. Overall very enjoyable. Rerate 300606: Had this again and this time the looks and mouth feel was far better. Also it was a bit more tart, balancing the "sugariness". I stand corrected!

DocLock (10075) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Draft at the Drafting Room. Looks like Fulkrum and I share opinions on the greatness of this beer. Turbid brown pour with a 1-finger, milkshaky tan head. The aroma is heavy roasty, smoky malt, coupled with some peat, a lot of dark fruit (plums, cherries, figs), and some campfire hints. The taste is very malty and exceptionally complex and smooth, gaining a semi-dry red winey palate profile as it warms. Silky smooth mouthfeel. This one is outstanding!

Bottle. Pours murky brown with no head, just few bubles floating in the middle. Aroma is a little strange, like a spicy grape juice and a little maple syrup. Very sweet, tart initially. A little tabacco and alcohol as it sits in my mouth for a while. Sweet and sugary finish. A little too sugary for me. Oily mouthfeel.

Sten (742) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2009 A dark brownish beer with a pale-brown head. Not much aroma but its yeasty, sweet and maybe a bit malty. The taste sweet and spicy. Very complex beer. (Bottle 33cl)
