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 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

Aroma of Chocolate and spices.Appearance is black as night. Taste Chocolate and licorice. Palate . medium body, moderate feel, average carbonation. Overall would have gotten a perfect rating if i didn’t get small amounts of alcohol burn. Besides that a great belgian strong ale.

appiantiqua (247) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 12, 2016
Dégustée dans un verre Straffe Hendrik. Température de début 11 à 12°. Très belle robe brun sombre surmontée d’une très abondante et persistante mousse ivoire; carbonatation intense. Nez très riche avec des arômes houblonnés et de pain, des notes acides et fruitées le tout dans un bel équilibre. Le goût est tout aussi harmonieux et complexe : fruits rouges qui apportent l’acidité, vieux vin cuit(Porto) pour la douceur et une discrète touche amère. La finale est longue et très plaisante sur la chaleur de l’alcool et la douceur. Une bière d’exception tout simplement délicieuse. 19/20

Dégustée dans un verre Straffe Hendrik: jolie robre brune surmontée d’une belle mousse crème évoquant déjà la douceur à venir par sa texture veloutée!La carbonatation est intense et les arômes laissent apparaître des notes maltées et houblonnées avec une légère amertume mêlée à l’alcool.La bouche nous amène sur un merveilleux velouté nous offrant des saveurs à l’image du nez avec une petite pointe d’acidité relevant cet ensemble très riche.La finale nous fait rester sur une douce chaleur infinie....Une bière d’exception comme les Rochefort et Pannepot!..19/20
