Anker Blonde is brewed artisnally with the best natural ingredients by the established Anker Brewery since 1369. This top fermented lager is very refreshing thanks to its balance between pale malt and refined hops. Tastes quite fresh at 6° - 8° C.

Koelschtrinker (12210) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 2, 2014
Hefig mit milden Kräuternoten zu Beginn steigert sich das Bier im Mittelteil kaum sondern bleibt eher mild. Süffig, steigende Herbe zum Ende, feinfeinperlig. Ok. 9/8/8/7/7/8

Ik heb Vossen met de Meynen geproefd, maar de website schakelt me over naar dit. Het was allesinds een blond biertje met een goede smaak aan.

Alengrin (3023) - BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2014 Elegant thirst-quencher from one of my favorite breweries that has been sold under different names. This rating is based on a 75 cl bottle under its original name Anker Blond; also tasted as Margriet, which is apparently the same beer, but made to celebrate the women that have been in charge of the city of Mechelen throughout history; and as the new Vossen Met De Meynen. Loosely structured, off-white head, colour a warm golden blond with not too obvious clouding (yeast); aroma of apple and pear, coriander, cloves, honey and a hint of cognac; taste fruity with a soft pilsener malt basis, pure, subtle spiciness, smooth and rounded mouthfeel, finish mildly hopped and medium long.

Had it as ’Vossen met den Meynen’. Anyway, it’s an average Belgian blond beer. Yeasty, with some fruits and herbs. Nothing too exciting.

Bottle as Margriet celebration beer 2005, well over maturity, tried at Kulminator. Golden color, off-white head. Nose is superb, pure porto, alcoholic, liquer. Finish is sweet, soft, alcoholic, old bottle effect. Special brew, aged surprisingly well
