Interesting brew. Cloudy dark orange color. Aroma and flavor both are strongly reminding me of wine or old port. A bit sweet and a small amount of bitterness too in the flavor. Overall a nice and interesting brew.

0.33l bottle at home. Yellow with thin white head. Some lacing remained on the glass. Spicy aroma with hint of orange and alcohol. Thick smooth mouthful. Taste is sweet at the beginning and spicy bitter at the end. Long warm feeling after you have a sip. Good triple.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2006 bottle shared by tpkenned.
Hazed, buffed and pale yellow in color with a thick, tall and sudsy white head. Sweet, soapy lemon shine aroma is aided by shrocked lemon rind shavings, lemon-pistachio buttercream, coriander, vanilla beans and banana taffy. Sweet, creamy bananas meld with a lemon saltwater taffy character. Fluffy effervescence is well met by the dry, lemon buttered sourdough. Chewy sorghum and a sweetened papaya-banana smoothie characteristic eventually spinn into a dry, tropical and citric outtake. Full-bodied, followed by a sharp, dry cotton bitterness. Marigolds with a creamy nectar blanket envelops the palate with a vanilla mint creamy glossiness at the end.

The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy golden amber beverage with an ample frothy white head that was mostly lasting and left great lacing on the glass. The first aroma that hit me was bubble gum and then came a sweet fruitiness accompanied by pepper, coriander and honey ... very yummy. The body was medium with a very active carbonation level and a slight syrupy texture. The flavor starts out moderately sweet with honey, fruits and spices. This sweetness stays consistent through the long finish and is completed by a big alcohol warmth in the chest.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 Bottle, 75cl corked. Two years past BB-date. It pours a slightly hazy, sparkling golden body with a gigantic creamy off-white head. Fine lacings left. Slightly cellary or corked on the nose, with pale malt, fruityness, some citrus hints and spices and a little piney note. Well hidden alcohol. Warming, effervescent and full-bodied. Slightly cellar-like flavor too, with citrusy, piney hops, some bitterness balancing the white sugar sweetness, and a herbal touch. Pale malts as well. Also something reminiscent of dried apricots. Lasting finish with good warmth and a fine bitterness. It’s probably better when fresh, but the two extra years of cellaring sure as hell didn’t ruin it. Rating: 7-4-8-4-16-3.9. (090410)
Bottled, 0.33. A cloudy, orange beer with lots of floaties, and a huge, dense, lasting off-white head. Nice, sweet nose with oranges and spices. Sweet flavor with orange-peel, both fresh and dried fruits and black tea. Fullbodied, quite gassy beer, almost sticky mouthfeel. The finish is long, with bitterness, warming alcohol and spices. I love Het Anker. (061130)

Pours a golden color with a medium sized white head. Interesting beer that has hints of honey, apple, and pineapple in the aroma and taste but finishes quite dry. Very fizzy on the tongue. Good stuff.
