Gives a nice clear light orange color,gives a good to fingertips high creamy head that half of it disolves quickly.nice lacings on the glass .

A: candied sugar,honey,caramel malts and tofee, cloves and pepper,much different fruits like tropical fruits like banana and abricot.citrus fruits like lemon and orange.a great taste on this triple

T&F: A very fruity start in the taste,much of the tropical taste is very noticable, I also sense banana,citrus fruits and different spices like peppers,cloves and muscat.the light malts are comfortable in the background and make this triple very good balanced. The aftertaste is the only thing I think it could have a little more of .The aftertaste is sweet and fruity but a does not last that long. This beer was really easy drinking and enjoyable

O: an amazing and delicious triple. Enjoyed every drop of it.I was impressed by this triple and eager to trie more beers from brouwerij hey anker

MJ's "Great Beers of Belgium" said it "pours a dense, ice cream head. It has an attractive golden-bronze color and a fine, sustained head. Both the aroma and palate are packed with tropical fruits and spices..... the palate is intense and powerful.... The finish is long..." and he goes on for several more sentences and, then to make his point, he cites the awards.
My personal opinion is that MJ liked this one.
He also said that he had visited Het Anker at least six times.
My opinion confirmed.

This is a really satisfying Belgian Tripel with a solid, assertive, malt body to balance out the relatively hefty alcohol content for a well rounded experience without any unwanted booziness experienced in other tripels.
