Tasted this beer on tap at the Evening Star in Brighton, 19/08/05. At first I didn't recognise the beer was from Het Anker as when I tasted this beer on tap at the brewery in Mechelen no beer logo was on display. Thanks for Beerymatt's kind info./correction and provision of this nice beer on tap!

A: served in a small short-legged wine glass or goblet, it pours a clear, golden hue with a negligible beer head and moderate carbonation.
S: mild banana or banana-bread and coriander seed like spicy aroma, with a little hint of strawberry~~ softly fruity and hoppy at the same time.
T: a witbier-like taste upfront--butter-fried banana, coriander-seed, followed by a lightly candyish malty flavour, a lively green-apple peel note and underlying spicy (like the aftertaste of nutmeg and cinnamon...) flavour and a peppery and yeasty touch, all mixed up and led to a kind of herbal bitter and hoppy finish. Not sure if any spices are used in this beer but the spicy touch accompanies the hoppy theme really well.
M: refreshing and lively, the mouthfeel is also quite smooth with gentle carbonation. Balanced mouthfeel b/w spices, hops and malts sustains throughout, with a slightly crisp touch in the end.
D: very delicately-tuned and refreshing Blond. Recommended!
