Dark, ruddy brown beer with a tan head. This beer smells like prunes, raisins, earth, minerals, burnt sugar, apples and sweet plums. The taste is prune juice, apples and raisins with a burnt sugar sweetness and bitterness. The beer continues to stream carbonation from the nucleation site throughout the drink, I am a bit biased toward Belgian beers but this one is quite good. I would drink this again.

Reviewed in "Michael Jackson's Great Beers of Belgium", this awaits my review with another tasting.
Oerbier is also reviewed in the "1001."

L - Foamy, Billowy, Light tan head, little splashes of foam on the glass. Dark brown with very red tint.
S - Candi sugar, roasted notes
T - Hard to nail down, tastes like eating dessert before dinner, rich, fruitiness, sweet then tart, some booze.
F - Lighter body but good feel
O - third or fourth time trying this and I am not close to getting bored with it.
