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.

Erasmus_ro (2871) - Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Tap @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours a hale orange with a good, off-white head. Aroma is like a Belgian blond. Fruity with apple. Taste is a different matter. Caramel, fairly sweet, a lot of spiciness. Caraway, light coriander, earthy. Sticky, a bit light, good carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Draft at Jerry?s. Copper-amber with huge, foamy, white head, wet lacing / Musty nose of toasted grain, honey, light citrus / Light to medium body, thin, lightly sour, mostly dry with bitter finish / Simple flavors of toasted grain with notes of honey, banana, and citrus / Nothing particularly Belgian about this very uninspiring ale.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep reddish amber with a small off white head. The nose is very fruity with notes of apple. Slight florals as well. Odd taste with those fruity notes, florals, and slight plastic phenols. Im guessing thats the Yerba Santa. Starts off a little sweet but finishes fairly dry. This one didnt do much for me.

Lukaduke (3199) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a deep golden color with two fingers of white foam. The nose has some yeasty esters, lots of bubblegum and a bit of earthy malts. The palate, though not as sweet as the nose, is a touch disjointed. Yeasty phenols, pepper, apple, earthy doughy malt and bubblegum.

Svesse (8484) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 25 July 2013) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, spicy nose with dried fruit, toast and hints of wild yeast. Malty, spicy taste with notes of dried apricots, orange, gentle flavours of wild yeast and a certain spicy bitterness in a fairly dry finish. More than medium body, quite dry. Well balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

Tap East. Keg. Thanks (I think) to Rich Dinwoodie for the reommendation. Clear amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, slightly soft. Fine carbonation. Light creamy malt. Bright banana ester with banana cream. Finishes semi dry. Not bad but very banana!
