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).

vipinvelp (2319) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2014
Somewhat opaque orange yellow with big white foam head. The foam is stopping the aroma, nevertheless some floral. Tastes quiter bitter, coriander, spicy aftertaste. Interesting beer, good. (Velp 201401)

Abijen (1511) - s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2013
Pours an orange slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells like a weizen. Lemon. Tastes yeasts, malts and like a standard belgian white. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture. Quite boring

tricksta_p (1271) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2013
Pours a murky amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma of yeast, apricot, hops, ripe fruits, spices. Some sour notes, with a relatively dry finish. A very tasty and interesting beer I shall have again.

jaghana (4085) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper orange beer with huge head. Nose is quite hopy and yeast like with lemon and grapefruit touch. Aroma is on fresh orange notes, lemony, belgian yeast, red fruits, grapes, light caramel, kind of wheat astringency, good. Finish has a nice grassy bitterness with long duration.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Very nice! Could call it an ipa. Flavor is full but well balanced. Not too sweet, full flavor of yeast, malts, hops and tropical fruit. Good dry bitter finish.
