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

The longest-finishing beer that I've ever tasted-- at least 15 seconds.
Tastes a bit like cider, but oh so much more complex. The most
interesting beer money can buy.

Wet and strong!..............................

A great beer.
A friend of me buys every year two palets. One to drink, the other to stay in his cellar. Because it seems that this beer becomes better with the years. Imagine, it is already a very good one!

A bit over the top on my first try. A bit too sweet, but that does not say it is not great. I will revisit many times I think.

the best Ale EVER..............................................

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 25, 2001
Like Trois Pistoles, this beer is a mix between a Flanders red and an Abbey Dubbel; also like Trois Pistoles, it is a phenomenal beer. It is both full-bodied and sharply sour, giving it a huge complexity as well as great drinkability. Another great beer from De Dolle.

One of the most amazing beers that ever was.................................

Bov (13284) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2001
cloudy amber colour, fine lace, complex aroma: cherry, apple, slightly smoked; sweet flavor, great complex aftertaste (with a hint of cherry) - a monument !

PhillyBeer2112 (2903) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2001
Rich with a full malt palate and puckering
sourness that I find rather pleasant.
The sourness is very remiscient of sour cherries,
and as Oakes mentioned, warrants comparison to a
kriek lambic. Cloudy dark brown color, as appropriate,
with excellent creamy head and complete head retention.
High carbonation helps cut the sweet/sour flavors
and the beer on the whole is exceptionally drinkable.
