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

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 Hazy dark ruby with a large off-white head. Another very yeasty beer from De Dolle. Very fruity character (wild berries, strawberries), candy and liquorice and cream caramel dessert. Some oak a little sourness touch in there too. Another reason why De Dolle is one of my favourite brewery. I had it on tap at the brewery and served by the brewer himself. I felt like a groupie with a back-stage pass to the Mtley Cre dressing room without the dirty sex part.

Light alcoholic warmth from the aroma. Very spicy smelling. Some cinnamon or allspice qualities to it. Moderate mouth feel. Light sour twinge in the upfront flavor with caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, nuts, port, everything! Color is cloudy brown with a lightly tan head.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Wow, another masterpiece by De Dolle. Nutmeg and sour apples in the nose. Very lively carbonation that fills up the body. Pours thicker than most imperial stouts and looks beautifully like impenetrable shoe polish in the glass. Tastes very fruity, very rotten-citrus spicy. Absolutely fantastic.

Wow. Really enjoyed this beer. Malty and sour. More fruity then the Arabier. Love the sour and carbonation mix. Hard to tell if I am tasting a hint of chocolate or caramel. De Dolle makes great beers.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2010
(.33cl bottle) Pours a chocolate color with thick tan head. The carbonation is huge. I did pour the sediment rather than leaving the sediment in a separate glass. Incredible aroma of yeast and bread. Nice caramel flavor with chocolate tones and ripe bananas. Slight sourness at the end. Very complex beer that leaves you licking your lips. This is a great beer!

Dark colour with a yellow creamy head which lingers. Fruit cake flavour with a spicy undertone. Delicious ��

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
