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).

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.

Quack-Duck (8338) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
bottle, donated by jaghana - merci! Hazy golden colour, white head. Malty, pleasantly sweet with a spicy-fruity touch. Highly drinkable despite the complexity.

vipinvelp (2497) - 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 (1553) - 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

JulienHuxley (3592) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle from the Bierkoning. Hazy dark amber pour, creamy white head. Aroma is grassy, a touch of something minty, quite herbal, light peppery belgian yeast, quite spicy as well, coriander, smells fresh. Taste is grassy, spicy, very light citrusy flavor, tame maltiness, not very sweet, long lingering spicy finish. Palate is med-full bodied with strong carbonation, med-dry, more refreshing than I was expecting. Good.
