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

orange-reddish mahogany color. only a small bit of tan foam that goes right to being a ring around the inside edge of the glass. lots of smallish sized yeast particles. bready rum soaked raisin aroma. a little bit sour too. kind of like a barley wine aroma. flavor is strong malt sweetness, like unsulphured prunes. whiskey-like alcohol is present, then becomes vinuous like a low alcohol belgian barleywine. snappy carbonation, light syrup mouthfeel. finish is dryish, yeasty, and spicy sour.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Bottle: Dark caramel, HUGE off-white head, foamy, fantastic lacing, lots of sediment.   Looks fantastic!   Sweet bready aroma, caramel, slightly musty, pale and dark fruits intermingling.   Wonderful body, full to medium mouthfeel.   Warming finish, bready, semi-sweet, subtle dark pitted fruit notes and apple skin flavor.   Yummy!

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Poured brown with a white head. The aroma is full of fruits, earthy and even a vegetable aroma. A very unique and interestering aroma. The flavor is also full of fruit... very sour and acidic. Fruits are dark and full. Pomegranant and plum seem most present. In addition to the sour and fruit there are also some citric flavors and a honey like sweetness. Quite nice and complex.

Schioth (41) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2005
Bottle. Good, full aroma. Very nice appearance. VERY special flavor. I cant really say that I can identidy the taste, but its a bit sour and very different from anything else Ive tasted. Nice, smooth mouthfeel. Overall a very well-brewed and interesting beer, albeit not one of my personal favorites.

Red colour with a huge lacing off-white head. Sweet aroma of spices, yeast, dried fruit and alcohol. Sweet fruity flavour of bananas, nuts, yeast and dried fruit. Slightly bitter finish. Another great beer from de dolle brouwers.

lamas (1636) - Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2005
11.6 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy leathery brown with thick effervescent sandy head and some big floaties. Aroma of plums and dark cherry pie. Full-bodied. Sweet and fruity thoughout. Like caramel covered green apples. Starts tangy and finishes with some bitterness and a hint of spices. Warming alcohol throughout that I can feel up in my nose. Very burpy.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 3/2011 - This is my Belgian beer obsession. If it is on the menu I am ordering it. My favorite of the Belgian dark strong ales. A phenomenally rich and fruity delight. ++++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this fine brew pours a cloudy caramel color with a large tan head. The aroma is marvelous with sweet cherry and apple elements. The texture is syrupy yet strongly carbonated at the same time. The flavor is sweet with loads of cherry and apple fruit flavors, a thick and sweet middle, and a hoppy and spicy finish. Incredible!
