Anchor Zymaster Series No. 6 Saaremaa Island Ale

This pale ale is release number 6 from the Zymaster series of unique one-off beers from the Anchor Brewing Company of San Francisco, California. It is inspired by a brewmaster's trip to the Estonian island that has the same name as the beer. He brought back a special yeast used in that area. 

The beer pours an orangish honey golden in color. There is a short and thin head of white foam. The aroma is yeasty, floral, funky, with fruity esters. The taste follows the aromas, this is both sweet and tart, very floral and estery, with an earthy mild funkiness. It is medium bodied, with a tingling carbonation, and the finish is moderately bitter and dry. Although inspired by Estonia, this tastes very Belgian.
