Only in Belgium could a painting by Pieter Breughel inspire a beer.
In his painting “The Flemish Proverbs” Pieter Breughel the Elder depicted several Flemish proverbs and expressions amongst which “He’s a pilaarbijter” (“pillar biter”): He’s a hypocritical man.
In fact, I found this traditional Flemish brown ale to be very drinkable indeed. It’s light, pleasant and packs quite a complex aftertaste – one that I am still picking my way through. And yes, that does mean that I will be stocking up in the near future.
And if you were wondering about “The Flemish Proverbs” by Pieter Breughel, here it is.
