2012 vintage - Poured a cloudy orange with two finger head that left lace and stuck around a long time for better or worse. A spicy and yeasty aroma with touches of tropical fruit and a touch of floral hops as well sweet and breadlike malt. Smooth and easy to drink with a light to medium body, there is a liveliness and crispness in this beer thanks to some spice and carbonation and the alcoholo gives it a heated snap on the finish. The fruit flavors and malts are balanced and I'd say you can equally detect some plush tropical fruit like pineapple with citric hoppy orange alongside both sweet and grainy malts. Overall I just found this beer to hit the right notes in terms of balance and taste and I really enjoyed it this dangerous sipper.

I rate Het Anker right up there with the best from Belgium and the Keizer Blue is one of my all time favourites.
Dare I say it but the alcohol burn masks this one and really hurts the beer ever so slightly. A good SPA but there is better to be had for the price.

2011 Vintage. Poured into a tulip.

A wonderful floral aroma. Good balance. Between the pale malts, spicy hoppiness and floral aromas and faint sweetness. Complex because not one characteristic overwhelms another. A good mix of flavors and aromas.

A – Pours a pale cloudy golden with a 3-finger rocky white head, nice lacing dissipating to a continuous layer.

S - Some yeasty spiciness (but not peppery), some floral hoppiness (but not sweet).

T – Medium bitterness, a nice smooth maltiness, faintly sweet, some even fainter fruit (pear?).

MF – Good carbonation, medium to dry creamy with hints of spice in the finish, medium bodied.
