3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle at home. Into a tulip glass. ABV 8%
Light amber colour on the body with a big off-white head, thin and kind of froathy. Very good retention though with spots of lacing here and there.
Very nice aroma, very fruity, light yeast, banana and ripe pears, some caramel.
Taste begins sweet with red fruits, black and red grapes, yeast, ripe pears. A touch of bitterness on the finish. Alcohol well hidden.
Medium thin body, good carbonation with a bite on the tongue.
Overall quite good, not on th high levels as other Anker beers but still very enoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a really nice big lasting head. Nose is toffee, nectarine, Belgian yeast & lightly toasted malts. Taste is light sweetened grapefruit, spices, light honey. Fairly thin mouthfeel doesn't detract from a fairly good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 6-27-2009 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer forms a large very fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, semi-transparent amber body, lots of floaties, fair amount of lacing, lively, and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is caramel malts, dark fruits, hops, and alcohol. The Taste is caramel malt, hops, dark fruits, spicy, and alcohol. The Palate is tingly and semi-thin. This beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a warming sensation from the 8%ABV, would be a nice winter beer, worth trying, and a beer I would drink again.
