Oerbier tasting notes
De Dolle Oerbier is a Belgian Strong Ale which name means “the spring”. It has a very rich aroma with sweet cherry, apple, dark fruits and vinous hints. Yeast is always in the background, both in taste and aroma. Taste is also complex, with plums, ret fruits, hints of vanilla and some alcohol, with a sweet and creamy finish.
Tripel is a term coined in Belgium in order to describe a strong pale ale inspired in the Tripel from Westmalle—who used the word tripel in 1956 to rename their strongest beer. It is a spicy, dry and strong Trappist ale with a rounded malt flavour. Aromas are complex with spiciness and fruity notes.
Flavour tend to be spicy and fruity too, with malt sweetness in the background and sometimes a honey touch. Tripel use to be high in alcohol, but they don't strongly taste as alcohol which is usually well hidden. Tripels can be compared with a slightly strong version of a Belgian Golden Strong Ale.
