COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Fort Ross Farmhouse Ale (7.2% ABV) is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale with a California twist. The unique bitterness and earthy spiciness of Yerba Santa, a native California herb, perfectly complement the fruitiness and clove-like flavors created by a local saison-style yeast. And in addition to hops, barley malt, and wheat malt, we used toasted Belgian wheat malt, which gives our Fort Ross Farmhouse Ale its distinctive maltiness and burnished bronze color.

Zymaster Series No. 4: Fort Ross Farmhouse Ale will be available in draught and 22-ounce bottles and will be poured in select bars and restaurants throughout the United States, as well as the Anchor Taproom, starting June 2013.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A small, off-white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. Rather German aroma, with some spiced notes. Full body, pleasant carbonation. The flavor too is a bit low on maltyness, with green apples, some fruityness, cloves and a touch of banana. Certainly a boring one, but drinkable. 130803
