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).

yespr (30909) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Spiced and herbal aroma, not good and uninviting. Flavour is nice malty with a nice sweetness and spice mix. Has a slight soapy and leathery feel. Ends with a mild spice note. Terrible aroma but nice flavour.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2004
A orange beer with sediment floating around and a fine white head. Both the aroma and flavor is sweet with notes of coriander and oranges. The body is a little thin.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, amber golden with a tall, dense, handsome head with excellent retention. Spicy aroma with some yeast. Medium body with a light malt base. Dry as a bone with the same astringent, leathery bitterness as found in Orval - although not as refined. But quite interesting. 211007

madmitch76 (14744) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
30th September 2008. Cloudy brown beer. Extraodinary tasting beer. Very strong sourish ginger and caraway but there is no burn from the ginger (if thats what it is made with). Dry finish with quite a bit of hops. An eye opener the flavour of this one but not in a good way!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Cloudy amber color; big creamy head. Malty aroma; grass; hop flowers. Malty, good body structure, a bit aggressive (carbonation, lupolone) with very good hop notes, peculiar for Belgian (Dutch) Ales; very bitter. Long final, strong, partially aromatic. Thanks Jacob (Lvenlund) for this very good beer.
