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

Zlotta (2762) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2017
0.33 l bottle from drankgigant.nl, best before February 2017, cellared for almost two years. Foam streams slowly out of the bottle... Clear, very dark reddish brown with a massive, foamy, very dense, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, moderately fruity, slightly vinous and a bit yeasty-spicy aroma of caramel, raisins, figs, red grapes and oak. Sweetish, a bit sourish, malty, moderately fruity and quite yeasty-spicy taste of caramel, red grapes, oak, marzipan, candied cherries and a touch of chocolate, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, dry, a little tart and a bit warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, heavily effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very tasty and really complex, almost refreshing with that sourish, typical De Dolle yeast touch. The excessive carbonation is quite annoying again though, this almost needs to be decanted as most of their beers.

Murky prune brown reddish colour. Off-white head with nice head retention. A tad alcohol, great belgian yeasty taste. Interesting aftertaste, almost like marmite & veggie mite flavours. Smell of dark fruits. A real sipper.

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 (469) - 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.
