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).

Alengrin (4999) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Specialty ale made for De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Deep amber colour, powerful aroma of sweet spices and perfumes, which are also present in the taste, but well-balanced by a powerful, herbal hop bitter finish. Very nice.

Christos (5352) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle 330ml at home, poured into a small tulip glass, ABV 7% Very dark orange to light amber in colour, tall and thick off-white head on top. Good acticity in the glass, visible although the beer is quite hazy and somewhat murky. The head has very good retention, taking ages to collapse entirely, and it leaves heavy lacing after it finally did. Aroma of light caramel, grains, fruity notes with apricot being dominant, some yeast. Taste also of grains, yeast, quite bitter straight away with the bitterness beig a long lasting one, again fruity notes of peaches and apricots. Medium body, good lively carbonation. Very dry on the palate. Overall a great beer, I was expecting a generic belgian style blond seeing it’s brewed for a beer shop but I was wrong, this can stand everywhere by itself.
