7th, in 2021, of the het Anker Indulgence series, a Strong Blonde with an ABV of
8.5%. New brew for me.

Pours a golden blonde with a good sized creamy frothy head. Great lacing.

Aromas of clove, honey, banana, white pepper, orange peel, hop and malt.

Medium bodied, with excellent carbonation creating a soft filling slightly fizzy
mouthfeel and texture. Complex, balanced, and excellent depth of flavour. It's
crisp, sharp, slightly tart when coldest, with a smooth velvety, creamy and
luxurious taste. Predominently hoppy and fruity, and malty with clove, white
pepper, banana, vanilla, grains, and lots of orange peel. Initial sweetness
gives way to a long and drier slightly bitter finish. Another outstanding
brew in this annual series.
Now this is definitely innovative brewing, and at a fair price.
