3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced slowly, down to a heavy film with a large collar which possessed some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), toffee, a mild fruitiness and a slight alcohol scent.
The taste was lightly sweet with a malty citrus note in the beginning, and then became very yeasty and a bit sour with a hint of green apple and a slight peppery alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a nice mild fruity funky yeast taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and creamy in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a very good Belgian Ale with a nice fruity citrus presence, that along with a good mix of yeast and alcohol helped make sure that no one flavor was so overpowering that it overshadowed any other. This brew was very tasty and rather refreshing for a beer that has such a high ABVÖ

Vol verwachting, maar toch een beetje teleurgesteld. Veel te zoet bier voor mij persoonlijk. Het anker heeft veel betere bieren dan dit.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a large white head, and the aroma blends light malts, Belgian yeast, sour fruit, and wheat. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, but the palate elevates the flavor due to the average carbonation, thin and slick texture, medium-light body, and a finish that extends the flavor with an extra kick of Belgian yeast flavor.

2.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33L bottle. Pouts hazy golden orange with a rocky white head. Really interesting and strong aromas. Dried fruit, bubblegum, sweet candy.
Little malt character in this beer. Starts almost immediately with light bitterness, transitioning to alcohol, yeast, woody and salty flavors. Finishes slightly sour, but doesnít linger very long, leaving behind heady alcohol feeling. Light body with a relatively thin mouthfeel and sharp carbonation. Overall, Iím a bit disappointed in the flavor and texture after the amazing aromas coming off this beer.

Bottle from Bertís Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer has yellow/golden color and a large white head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma tones malts, grains and fruits (a bit lemon like). The taste starts dry and hoppy, but changes in a fruity taste with sweet bitters. The finish is well balanced, long and has some nice bitters.

330 ml bottle. Pours golden yellow with a huge white head. Aromas of orange zest, spices, typical Belgian yeast notes and maybe some bread. Tastes pretty much the same, with the spices nicely blended with bread and biscuit notes. Oily mouthfeel, sweet aftertaste, long. Medium body with medium carbonation.
