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.

Bottle shared at LBT2. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is vinous with good oaky barrel notes, light floral notes, honey, citrus, a soft funk, fruits and grapes. Flavour is light moderate sweet with a touch or sourness. Perfectly balanced in the palate with a minerally fruitiness, soft acidity and wonderful barrel notes complimenting an already great base beer. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, a technically perfect beer and the best saison I’ve had. A beer like this with such crazy hype, rarity and value can never really live up to it. It’s not worth what it takes to acquire, but still a beautiful beer and a great experience.

PhillyCraft (4541) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle shared by Al, pours vibrant and hazy golden color with small to medium white head. Aromas of bright lemons, blood oranges, oak, vino funk, sea salt, grapefruit and tangy minerality. Medium bodied. Been wanting to try this little skank for years now. A little underwhelmed for hill standards but still a very nice beer. Probably not in my top 10 from these guys but still epic juice.

This poured a lightly hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of light wet rocks, white wine, light must peach skins. Flavor was significantly more tart than I was expecting, nice smooth white wine and earthy minerally character, with a medicinal sweet Smarties finish. Another terrific beer from HF.

Batch 2 bottle, split two ways. Poured into a wine stem. Appearance is crystal clear yellow-orange with finger of frothy, white head. Some lacing, and the head dissipates to a rim after a few minutes. Aroma is fresh honey, white wine, lemon. Some floral aspects, and a hint of funk. Taste is incredible. A deep honey flavor, minus the sweetness associated with it. White wine, lemon, juicy ripe white peaches, champagne, and drying oak. As it opens up, the white peach and champagne become prominent. Palate is delicate and complex. Many layers all complimenting perfectly. Juicy, but with a delicate dry finish. Overall, this is a truly exceptional beer. The care and effort that went into creating this are obvious. Well done, Shaun!

Move over Abner, we got another beer that deserves a 5. 750ml bottle in a tulip batch 2 bro. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of light tartness, some barrels and light wine, some honey, light malts, and some notes of light fruits. Flavor the same with an incredible blend. Smoother texture. Shaun Hill is a genius.
