Belgian Beer no.130: Pilaarbijter

My Belgian Beers no.64 and no.85 were also brewed by Bavik. Now another one of their products, the Pilaarbijter. We tried the brown one, although they do brew a Pilaarbijter blonde as well.

The beer, a very pleasant high fermentation beer, at 6.5%. What I found interesting is the name of this beer. Pilaarbijter means, literally translated, the column eater. The name was inspired by a painting of Pieter Breughel 'Flemish Proverbs'. A Pilaarbijter means a hypocrite.
