Translated from the Dutch on the brewery website.
Brewing process: Vicaris Generaal is made in three stages like the Tripel: warm fermentation at around 24°C, lagering at approximately 1°C and secondary fermentation in the bottle. The only difference between them is that the Tripel is brewed with one malt variety and Generaal with three. Vicaris Generaal is also brewed without spices.

- Ingredients: water, malt, sugar, hops and yeast.

- Tasting notes: Vicaris Generaal (8.8% ABV) is a red-brown warm fermented beer with a beautiful tinted head, conditioned in both bottle and keg. Generaal will mature in the bottle and is for the experienced beer lover. Generaal has a marked bitterness obtained by using roasted malt and hops. It is not a sweet beer.
- Available in 330ml and 750ml bottles and 30l kegs.

Note: Brewed by De Proef before their brewery opened in 2011.

Bottle at BCTC. Light dark brown maroon. 1 finger head. Orange wheat and some spices. Pretty sweet but an overall weak scent and taste. "spiced lager" is what friends called it. Not a fan of this overall. The sweetness and spices were dominating.

JDBaker11058 (1896) - Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Appearance: lightly hazed mahogany with ruby edges, and a creamy light tan head slowly shrinking to a fat cap. Aroma: graham crackers, ginger snaps, and clove. Taste: toasty malts, a bit of brown sugar, some dark, plummy fruits, and a solid dose of yeasty goodness. Finish: notes of prunes or figs, with some caramel and yeasty spice/bitterness. Notes: Excellent dubbel. Palate was smooth and rich, but also drinkable. Flavors were sweet without cloying. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
