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

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 If you get a chance to visit De Dolle please do so. The folks who run it are very nice and this is on tap there which is excellent. I love the hint of tartness from the Rodenbach yeast and it is tempered by the sweetness. Most Yummy. Sometimes a bit too carbonated for my tastes is only downside. Serving: Bottle and Tap

Birra di marrone scuro con riflessi di rame. Schiuma fine e persistente. Allolfatto aromi erbacei e fruttati. Al palato il corpo rotondo, sentori di frutta come prugna e susine, bilanciate da note di liquirizia. Unottima birra.

kaserov (429) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2017
Color marrn, entre claro y oscuro (con reflejos rojizos), pantanoso, opaco, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de cuatro dedos de grosor (textura jabonosa y muy buena retencin; al final se convierte en islas de espuma y en un anillo blanquecino que se pega a las paredes de la copa). Carbonatacin a tope (ms presente visualmente que en boca). Aroma a alcohol (recuerda a algn vino), dark fruits, especias, chocolate, caramelo, quiz azcar moreno? Sabor que sigue al aroma, dulce, con dark fruits por un tubo (as como un deje cido que no llega a desarrollarse del todo), buena dosis de alcohol (sin que llegue a echar patrs) y un poco de amargor final. Pocas Belgian Strong Ales tan complejas y sabrosas como esta. La botella que he probado tena tres aos, me encantara probar una botella fresca para poder comparar, aunque es probable que toda la complejidad extra haya sido adquirida en botella con el paso del tiempo debido a la levadura salvaje que estos locos utilizan. Se la recomendara incluso a un abstemio si fuera necesario.

SebBrews (108) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 14, 2016
Opaque dark brown with thick lasting beige, foamy, dense head. Aroma is caramel malts, candy sugar, dried plums, berries and soap aromas. Taste starts with sweetish strong alcohol and finishes dry. Plum brandy, red fruits. Metallic notes probably due to the crystal malts used. Heavy body, average carbonation, dry alcoholic finish. Good beer, but the alcoholic backbone is a bit too pronounced.
