Short’s liked the 2009 Anniversary Ale so much that they’ve made it every year since. A high-gravity wheat wine made with blood oranges that render an alluring purple hue. Flavors abound, ranging from the spiciness of green peppercorns to the tang of blood orange zest. Aggressive dry hopping of Simcoe amplifies the citrus overtones and spiciness found throughout. “Anni” Ale typifies Short’s Brewing Company by embodying all the complexities that come along with another year of brewing.
