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).

A slightly orange, brownish yellow beer with a big and blond head. The nose is strongly fruitfull and spicy, citrusfruits, black peppers, some sourness of green apples. Taste is fruitfull and strongly spicy as aroma, earthyness, herbs, lether and sour end. Medium bodied, high carbonation, fresh to drink. A unique and sour beer again from t IJ. Good beer.

JulienHuxley (4033) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - 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.
