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 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

Deep russet color; fluffy head; mild cherry nose. Very nice burst of cherry and dark fruits at 1st sip. Wonderful fizziness. Just gets more and more complex as it warms. A lovely little beer. This has to bemy favourite brewery!!

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2005
Dark, barley transluscent, light brown color with a well-developed, dense head that does not even consider collapsing. Aroma and flavor has some chocolate notes, some sourness, some milk, and dark earthy fruit. Pretty boring.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 10, 2005
Pours a darker amber with a tall off-white head. This brew had an amazing blend of sweet caramel malts, apple, citrus, and light spice. Very smooth and complex flavor with a touch of sourness in the finish and just a faint hopping.

Sammy (11770) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2005
maybe its the coriander and burnt toffee and orange and melon, pepper, usually a potent turnoff for my sensitive palate. Very much like a brown ale to me,

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 8, 2005
UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 03 33 cl bottle. Amber color with a nice head that dissolves into just a thin sheet. Aroma of De Dolle yeast, apples, caramel malt, oak and candi sugars. I did get some coriander, orange and burnt caramel out of this awesome beer.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2005
One of my first Belgians--and in retrospect, it is like the name of its brewers, a bit odd. Strong aroma, semi-acidic body with yeast and hop notes. There are beers I like better but this ones unique.

Aroma: malt and alcohol very powerful aroma. Apperance: cloudy red/brown with a tan head and good lacing. Flavour: prominant alcohol, malt and great non herbal hop flavours. Palate: medium to thick mouthfeel with a lasting maltiness and some lingering carbon.
