Rediscovery of flax
Flax fibres are used mainly for linen. Yet this noble raw material now also provides plenty of innovative applications such as tennis racquets, surfboards, bikes, etc. You also find other high-tech applications in the car and building industries. Moreover, flax is also a source of bio-energy and linseed oil is used for Paint, cosmetics, etc.
Recently, this durable product has made its way to the craft of brewing. Vicaris Lino is a blond beer of high fermentation where the natural class and versatility of flax comes fully into its own. The refreshingly sweet aroma, the touches of vanilla, and the straw-blond colour are the most pronounced features of this authentic product.
