3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy with a lot of head, that does not diminish quite quickly. Aroma is not quite pungent. It firstly resembles a good hopped lager beer aroma. Some sweet notes can be found. Taste is strongly sweet at first, but the taste quickly switches to mildly sour due to the present hops, and finishes dry, just like you would expect from a hopped beer. Pretty carbonated. Quite well balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy yellow with fine old-newspaper-colored head that fades moderate-slowly to thin attractive film. Aroma is huge apple juice, slightly vinous, touch of honey. Yum!! Body is medium-to-medium-light oily-watery, light carbonation but with prickly, moderate burn, medium-fine. Flavor is moderate apple juice, farm hay, pleasant clean bitterness in the finish that doesn’t linger. Delicious, in my opinion. No complaints.

Sherbety and refreshing. A cross between duval and hommelbier, but without duval’s bitterness, well balanced. Presentation is superb in a chalice glass, lovely head tight and beautiful colour. 8% abv not overpowering. Het anker brew some superb beers!
