Les commentaires font le grand écart! Il est évident que cette bière familiale que l’on sert aux enfants malgré son 1,1 degré d’alcool (et pas 1,5 comme écrit ici provisoirement) ne doit pas être jugée selon les critères d’une bière d’homme qui saoule ! Elle ne goûte pas non plus l’aspartame, que je supporte très mal et que je repère à tous les coups. L’édulcorant E954 est la sacharine. Pour ceux qui aiment les bières brunes un peu sucrées comme certains stouts (le Mikkeller du Delhaize, à 6,2 % vol.), la brune de Piedboeuf est un bon moyen de passer une soirée sans (presque pas d’) alcool. ------- are very opposite! Obviously this family beer, that is served to children despite its alcohol content of 1.1 (and not 1.5 as written here - temporarily :)) should not be judged on the criteria of a man’s beer who likes bitterness and alcohol. It does not taste aspartame, which I support very badly and I mark every time. The sweetener E954 is sacharine. For those who like dark beers whith some sweetness - like some stouts as the very nice Mikkeller from Delhaize, 6.2% vol.), the Piedboeuf Brune is a good way to spend an evening without (almost no) alcohol.

Gewoon tafelbier, kan gebruikt worden bij het eten of je kan het ook gebruiken om stoofvleessaus te bereiden.

Not my favourite but interesting to try. Reminds me of the swedish soft drink "must".

Clear dark brown colour with almost no head. Sugar in the aroma and sweet taste. Overall, boring and flat.

kraddel (5200) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2015
Botle Pours clear, dark brown . No head to speak of . Smell is sweet, sugar and canesugar . Taste is sweet, sugary , with hints of earhtyness extracted from the canesugar . Aftertaste is plain filthy with arteficial sweeteners ( asparthaan ? ) . The way I remember it being , before I drank beer I tasted this and did not like it . WAY to sweet ... Even at 1 ABV , this is not worth getting alcohol in my blood from .

Ceci n’est pas une critique, mais une note sur une bière qui constituera le 60ème style de bière que je déguste sur ratebeer… Les bières low alcohol sont bien sûr sans intérêt aucun, et si je vais un peu parler de celle-ci, c’est parce que c’est la bière que je buvais en étant gosse le midi, avant de repartir à l’école en courant (et sans me casser la figure …). Elle servait donc plutôt de limonade, mais elle nous permettait quand même de savoir déjà un peu ce qu’est un malt (léger, léger, mais alors là très léger, super léger, absolument léger, bref ...) et un goût caramélisé. C’est un début modeste, mais un début. Et puis ceci inscrivait surtout la bière dans un contexte social, où cette boisson était normale et traditionnelle sur la table (elle porte d’ailleurs la mention exacte de « bière de table »). Inbev de 1070 Anderlecht reprend donc maintenant cette bière de Jupille, près du Standard … (cherchez l’erreur …), et prend soin en dehors des 1,1 % d’alcool (et non pas 1,5 comme indiqué sur le site) d’ajouter à l’orge du maïs (déjà ça craint ..), mais aussi du colorant E150C, de l’antioxygène E300, et de l’édulcorant E954…. Etait-ce bien utile pour si peu de chose, pour une limonade maltée ? Nous le remercions en tout cas de prendre soin des enfants avec ces produits hautement recommandables !! Ce liquide m’aura au moins permis 3 choses : vous parler de mon enfance, vous expliquer la morale des grands groupes industriels, et surtout atteindre calmement mon 60ème style sur ratebeer … N.B. je voudrais rencontrer le canadien qui cote cette bière à 3,5 !!!

If you would ask any (preferably middle- or old-aged) Belgian which table beers they know, this will usually be the only answer they can come up with. It carries the name of the Piedboeuf brewery in Jupille, the fusion of which with Artois in Leuven eventually lead to Interbrew, now AB InBev; I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the oldest beer in their range which is still continued. Strangely, that is, because after all, table beers are a glory from the past, so there cannot be any significant profit in this - and profit is what AB InBev is all about, after all. Anyway: a very dark burgundy, clear beer with loose but stable and sticky, light beige head and a weak aroma of moist brown bread, cocoa, cola, very clear iron, candi syrup, aspartame, false notes of rotting grass and industrial caramel. Taste is sweet, brown sugar with something chocolatey and caramelly but in an ’added’, industrial kind of way, not feeling very ’natural’, medium carbonation, thinnish mouthfeel though this effect is a bit masked by the sugar, unnatural and somewhat chalky aspartame, metallic too, with a short and sweet, but not too cloying, aspartame-, coke- and butterscotch-like finish with low, but still noticeable hop bitterishness. Clearly an industrial standard lager of low ABV coloured and enhanced with industrial caramel - and who knows what more. In all: a typical table beer alright, but an industrial InBev interpretation of the style; relates to the artisanal brown table beers still made by some family brewers like the Leffe beers relate to artisanal abbey beers. One of the lesser interpretations of an otherwise underestimated and disappearing beer style.

Pyrmir (5055) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
330 ml bottle in a Brussels hotel room. Brownish red with white head. Aroma and taste of cloyingly sweet bready and spicy juice. Reminds me of svagdricka. Bad svagdricka.
