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.

Tap. Pours murky brown with thin beige head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roast and caramel malts, heavy dark fruit (figs, dates, cherries), booze, grassy hops, and yeast. Flavor is sweet malt forward with good dark fruit esters and hops (light bitterness); oak and faint booze undertones with a slightly bitter finish.Med/full body, low carbonation, and medium warmth.

Koffiecreme schuim, rood bruin van kleur , mooi fruit en kruiden in het aroma. Eerste smaak doet een beetje ijzerachtig aan maar verdwijnt snel voor een afdronk van caramel en een beetje fruit. Mooi bittertje op het einde.

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.
