Tastes a lot like Duvel if it had a harsh alcholic kick to it, not really that good compared to other Belgian ales.

Bottle. Hazy pale yellow color. Thick foamy head. Flavor is initially very fruity and lively, middle is mellow bread and yeast, fades into a candi sugar mild hop finish. Sweet and lively on the palate. Lots of residual sugars. Quite tasty.

Pours a hazy lemon orange with thick frothy, egg white head. Aroma is a bit metallic with tart lemon citrus notes. Flavor is a bit metallic with citrus and a harsh alcoholic sugar flavor. Body is light with active carbonation.

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2010
Pours a hazy straw colour. Had on tap at Dario’s Brasserie in Omaha, Nebraska. White, 2 fingered pillowy head with excellent lacing. Aroma of bread and biscuits. Medium, smooth body and it hides its 8% ABV very well. Easy drinking and a lovely medium-bodied brew for cold nights or summer patios. One of my preferred belgian brews.

Pinball (10872) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
clear yellow, large white head. dry dusty aroma, tight yellow fruity note like dry champaigne. not very strong aroma. flavor is quite typically belgian, actually i think i recognize het anker (yeast perhaps), mild sweet malty, faint cellary, flowery (sweet flowery) notes , very faint citrussy note. not much , if any hop bitterness or hop flavor. Overall an easy drinking belgian with a tightly sweet and dry profile.

Zymurgeist2 (1055) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Het Anker Lucifer On draught at Refuge in San Carlos. Pours hazy with a unique yellow-grey color. Massive head lingers and leaves great lacing. Spice and slight esters on the nose. Well balanced with malt and a little spice. Chewy yeast with sweetness lingering. The 8% alcohol is deceptive, as I don’t get a lot out of this beer.

Parket (569) - Bruges, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2010
bottle from a shop in Mechelen near brewery "het anker" .. yellow coloured with foamy medium white and stable head. Smell: cellar, yeasty. Taste: also some cellar, yeasty, strong alcohol. Powerfull but unbalanced strong ale.
