Expert Reviews

Anchor’s latest release in its Zymaster Series is this Belgian-style farmhouse ale with a distinctly Californian twist: yerba santa, a native California herb that exhibits earthy spice and bitter characteristics. The herbal addition complements the traditionally spicy character of a saison, which in this beer’s case includes notes of clove and delicate pink peppercorn, and plays well with the other forward aromas of banana, biscuit, fresh-cut grass and a hint of citrusy, wild funk. The malty core anchors the palate, with solid lemongrass and earthy hop flavors adding depth to the palate and lingering softly on the finish.
