COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ann is the wine barrel aged version of Anna (1902-?), our grandfather’s sister as well as the name of our Honey Saison. In her honor, we fill French Oak wine barrels with honey saison and allow the beer to mature in the presence of our resident microflora. After many months, a beautifully complex beer emerges--Anna becomes Ann. Naturally carbonated and dipped in beeswax, Ann displays the microflora of her landscape. This the ale that I dreamed to have shared with Anna.

[5/12/16] Bottle at Warpigs in Copenhagen. Cloudy yellow. Great funky and fruity aroma with barnyard, cellar, hay, earth, a vinegar note, oak, flowers, and a lemony touch. Funky flavor, floral, fruity, tart, with a vinegar hint and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied. Great.

_angst_ (4342) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle @ WarPigs. Pours tiny hazy deep yellow with a small frothy white head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny fruity, floral and funky with crackers, lemon juice, pineapple, star fruit, honey, clotted cream, hay, minerals, barnyard, dry wood, grape skins and lemon zest. Taste is very tiny sweet, slightly sour, slightly floral and funky. Mouthfeel is dry, slightly tart, tiny tannic astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly sour with rustic sourdough crackers, lemon and blood orange citric acidity, floral honey and complex wine barrel funk. Light, bouyant and extremely drinkable yet complex. Beautiful saison. Pity it’s so rare. Wouldn’t mind chugging this on hot days like this.

RasmusOtt (2082) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle @ Warpigs event. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of honey, grapes, sweet white wine, funk, slight cheese, citrus, lime and slight tropical white wine as well. The taste is sour and oaky with notes of funky brett, citrus dry white wine with slight tropical notes as well. With rare and hyped beers like this - you expect unicorns to come out of the bottle. Clearly that did not happen - but I would say this was a good substitute for it anyway.

MannyGoldberg (188) - The big bad LDN, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
2014 bottle at Warpigs on 12th May 2016. Pours deep’ish golden yellow with a decent head retreating to a lasting ring around the inside of the glass. Aroma is light funk, citrus, oak, some vanilla. Taste is tart, oak, grassy. Body is quite full. Spritzy mouthfeel. Overall while reasonably complex felt this was a bit too in your face to be truly world class.
