This famous French orange bitter liqueur is a staple in its home country, where it is mixed with pilsner or wheat beer to create a potent brew known simply as Picon Biere. Created in 1830, Picon also contains essences of gentian and quinine. It is particularly delicious (and dangerous) with Hoegaarden.
Absolutely love it mixed with a nicely chilled beer. Going back to France in January so will be stocking up

I tried for the first time in a Chamonix restaurant! and I couldn't believed myself, so rich and nice for the palate!
I wished I could find it in Miami!

My favourite cafe (the Cafe Brancardieres in Lourdes) makes a cocktail called a Cesar. It is Picon Amer, white wine and a number of other "secret" ingredients which no amount of wheedling or bribery will coax from them. Quite outstanding as an aperatif.

I was drinking Picon Biere off the menu just recently on holiday in the South of France, I then spent hours looking for it in the supermarkets there but couldn't find it, I never realised it was a liquer and beer mix, clearly was looking in the wrong isle. This stuff is lovely!

I used to drink Picon Biere when I worked in Strasbourg - it makes even French beer palatable.

So, so good. Picon 'Biere' with a lager or Picon 'Club' with white wine.
- anonymous, 24th Oct '10
you are not suppose to mix this with beer, but with dry white wine and grenadine, that's how we drink it in Belgium
- Caroline Bekaert, 10th Oct '10
i like the product
- arlindo centeio, 22nd Aug '10
Just lovely. Had this in Beziers last weekend, brought a bottle back - such a hit with everyone that we are trying to get some brought back from Northern Spain THIS weekend!

You cannot make Picon Punch with this stuff because that drink requires the 78 proof formulation.
- anonymous, 21st Jul '10
Excellent stuff. Gives cheap lager a depth of flavours more reminiscent of a good dark Belgian, very refreshing too.

It is excellent and is difficult to find in the state

Picon Punch is AMAZING!

I tried it I in Paris Summer 2008, went back Dec. 2009 and ended up buying three bottles, best beer mix I ever drank, and I agree 1:8 is a better ratio than 1:4 ratio.
- Edgar Herrera, 2nd Jan '10
This is an amazing product but the recommended ratio is more like 1:8 (30ml Picon to a 250ml bottle of beer). 1:4 is far too strong.
