COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A prize-winning beer that we brew specially for De Bierkoning. The fruity, bitter hops and lightly roasted malt complement each other perfectly in this light brown beer. These flavours are accentuated with a little coriander to produce a full aroma of flowers, citrus and a hint of caramel. An irresistible beer that was crowned in the Brussels Beer Challenge with a silver medal in the Herb & Spice category.

Vlo stands for Vodden, Lompen en Ongeregeld (translates a bit as rags, bags and bums).

ZodiacM (299) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
Amberkleurig bier met mooie schuimkraag. Eerste smaak die opvalt is de hoppige grassmaak, bitter, moutig en tonen van gedroogd fruit. In de geur komt vooral de mout en het fruit naar boven. De nasmaak is vooral bitter met gras. Lekker bier!
