COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Translated from the Dutch on the brewery website.
Brewing process: Vicaris Generaal is made in three stages like the Tripel: warm fermentation at around 24C, lagering at approximately 1C 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.

tfredvik (1833) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2016
Pours a very deep mahogany body with a large, creamy, tan head that reduces to a healthy layer, good lacing. Moderate flavour of sweet caramel, dark caramel, dark dried fruits, Belgian yeast, fermented apples, anise seeds and brown sugar. Moderate flavour of dark dried fruits, caramel, alcohol and some herbs. In the back I get anise seeds and liquorice. Moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Mid-bodied, light dry finish. A nice one, but a bit too weak and subtle.
