There’s only one word that I can use to describe this cold weather: Brrr! Okay, well it’s not the type of word that you’ll find in the Oxford dictionary (maybe in the Urban dictionary), but it is recognised by those who live in the northern hemisphere as a polite way of saying: “I am freezing my b*****ks off, right now!”.
Even if it was cold (and still is) it was great to wake up on Sunday morning to witness a shallow blanket of snow cover the garden, people moulding snowballs the best they can with limited amount of snow that can be salvaged on top of car bonnets and, of-course, “the big coat” comes out.
Anyway, enough about the cold weather, it’s time to talk about today’s Midweek Drink choice.
Today, I will be reviewing for you a non-alcoholic pale lager that belongs to a very popular beer family that can be found in almost every bar in Belgium: Jupiler Non Alcoholic Beer 0.0%.
Brief facts on Jupiler
- Jupiler was first introduced in Belgium in 1966.
- It got its name from a former municipality from where it was originally brewed called, Jupille.
- It is the biggest-selling beer in Belgium and they continue to produce four varieties of pale lager: Jupiler, Jupiler Blue, Jupiler Lemon and Lime and Jupiler 0.0%
- Jupiler Non Alcoholic Beer 0.0% took over its non-alcoholic predecessor, Jupiler N.A. at the end of 2016.
- Jupiler sponsors the Belgium Pro League and the Belgian national team.
Three senses and a beverage
Jupiler Non Alcoholic Beer 0.0% comes in a 250ml bottle with its famous trademark black bull logo above the name
It has a crystal clear pale-gold colour; high to low carbonation and a thin white head that dissipates quickly.
When you first sip on this light-bodied pale lager, you get the sweetness from the malts and a slight grainy taste, which blends very well into a moderately bitter aftertaste. For the aroma, sweet and fruity notes can be picked out.
