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

appiantiqua (135) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2016
Dguste dans un verre Straffe Hendrik. Temprature de dbut 11 12. Trs belle robe brun sombre surmonte dune trs abondante et persistante mousse ivoire; carbonatation intense. Nez trs riche avec des armes houblonns et de pain, des notes acides et fruites le tout dans un bel quilibre. Le got est tout aussi harmonieux et complexe : fruits rouges qui apportent lacidit, vieux vin cuit(Porto) pour la douceur et une discrte touche amre. La finale est longue et trs plaisante sur la chaleur de lalcool et la douceur. Une bire dexception tout simplement dlicieuse. 19/20

thellgren (910) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2016
0.33 l bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm. Red-Brown or black depending on the lighting, big head. Dark sweet malts with a sour ending. Tastes like a red dessert wine, which is not just sweet. Not as sour as the Flander oud bruin style, though. Nice for a dessert.
