COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anniversary Ale is a high-gravity wheat wine made with blood oranges. Flavors range from the spiciness of green peppercorns to the tang of blood orange zest. Aggressive dry hopping of Simcoe hops amplifies the citrus overtones and spiciness found throughout the beer. Anniversary Ale typifies Short’s Brewing Company by embodying all of the complexities that come along with another year of brewing.

This bottled brew from rbsg #45 poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a semi-opaque dark ruby red brown colored body. The strong aroma was old ale hoppy malty and vinous. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of old ale vinous and malt.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/orange with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of oranges, a lot of caramel and wheat malts, a little spice, some light pepper, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with an interesting blend of everything. Smooth texture. A really interesting beer, but just too much going on.

Boutip (6483) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
Draft: Poured a hazy dirty brown color ale with a small foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of dry wheat notes with some grainy malt notes is typical for style. Taste is a nice mix of dry wheat malt notes, light grainy notes, light residual sugar notes with some subtle blood orange notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not sure the flavours are well-balanced between each other’s but interesting nonetheless.

GABF 09 Odd aroma wouldn’t have said orange, not bad, but different. Odd flavor intriguing, but a bit off lemon grass w/ some blood orange over a bit of alcohol. Not that good.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Brownish caramel, very thick, large frothy off-white head, splotchy lacing.   That is one zesty hop aroma, very citrusy.   Smells like sweetened orange rind, much like the stuff you might squeeze from the peel.   It actually smells a lot like ruby red grapefruit with sugar on it!   Very similar on the tongue, wow... that is interesting.   Hoppy, yet not biting.   This mainly seems just simply citrusy.   A little bubbley on the tongue, some fizziness.   Lingering citrus zest and sweetness.   Very odd.   Can’t detect the 11.7% ABV at all.   Drinks like its half that.   This is very interesting, champagne like in its effervesense.   Not sure what to make of it.   Entertaining, if a little too much like drinking a beery ruby red grapefruit.   Thanks for the freebie Kevin!
