Anker Blond with juices from several kinds of berries. Very thick, creamy, yellowish head and dark ruby brown colour. Cassis dominates the nose, but the brambleberry and blueberry are also present - though I cannot find much else. Same story in the mouth, very sweet and dominated by the cassis, soft sourish accent but not enough to give balance, soft subtle maltiness underneath. As much as I like the Anker ales, top-fermented fruit beers with sweetened juices instead of real fruit will never be my cup of tea - although I have to admit that for this style, it is fairly well-made in comparison with most other comparable products. I have yet to taste the updated version after 2009, which is apparently classified as a different beer here.

Cor vermelho rubi com espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de frutas vermelhas e geléia de framboesa. Sabor acompanha o aroma com morangos, framboesas, cerejas, com dulçor pronunciado e baixo amargor. Bem carbonatada e refrescante. Minha esposa gostou muito. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rouge claire, pétillance moyenne, fine mousse rose. Plus sucrée que fruitée, ce qui est bien dommage pour ce genre de bière. Contient du houblon mais on ne le perçoit pas du tout! Contrairement à ce qui est indiqué ici, elle est toujours brassée et vendue à la boutique de la brasserie Het Anker!

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from Yamaya. Big fat berry, fruit jam aroma. Light rose wine color. Vert light raspberry and strawberry initial / wine-like and tart in mid / finishes with a thin film coating of berry sweetness, which loses flavor like gum that has been chewed too long. Very thin body. Very mild stuff. Drinkable, to be sure. A bit thin in flavor, good in aroma.

Red / Brown color with nice head. Lots of raspberry / strawberries in flavor. Flavor is like candy wit all the Berry. Ok to be a fruit beer.

Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard. I was lucky to get one of the old ones last year. bbf 2011-01-22. clear brown/amber/red (red-brown) large super smooth offwhite head. strong aroma of various kinds of berries, fresh citrussy berry-jam. practically no bitterness. flavor is sweet berry jam, citrussy note, fruitpeely bitter note, sweet malts, sweet dark fruits. It is a bit cloying due to the sweetish malty bitterness or sweetish dark fruity bitterness also present.
