The Flemmish are a sarcastic lot who joke around quite a bit. The "Mad Bitch" was actually a former employee of theirs. She's depicted on the label. So the name isn't as awful as it appears.
Aging: originally, Kris told people that Dulle Teve is best fresh. We sampled a 10 year old Dulle Teve and it was excellent. It turns more into barleywine with age and the maltiness and sweetness become more pronounced. Excellent fresh or aged.
And Oerbier's a damn treat. Best quad on the market, in our opinion (Achel Extra would be the closest in quality, as would a 4 year old Westy 12, which is a completely different beast)
They are both awesome, and to me they have a density of flavor that I would describe as unusual. Great offerings! Though I've had Special Reserca Oerbier, Arabier, Boskeun and Stille Nacht these two core offerings still stand out & for me are as great as any good bottle of Rochefort or Westvleteren. Fun having them!
