4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at Warpigs. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, pineapple and peach, notes of elderflower, funk, oak, and a little spice. Dry and tart fruity flavour with citrus and pineapple. Oak and a hint of grass. Tartness is almost like grapefruit or pineapple.

Rating #7500. Bottle at Warpigs, Hill Farmstead Day. It pours hazy orange with a firm white head. Quite oaky aroma with a nice acidic punch. Zesty hoppy. The flavor is tart and oaky with citrusy zesty notes. Ligger Spice from what I believe is the honey. Great balance here. So quaffable.

Batch 2. Cannot see a beer getting any better than this. The wine barrel and honey add "Zenith" like characteristics to the original beer.

Anna is such a great beer that it is no surprise the wine barrel aged version wouldn’t be outstanding. The addition of honey really adds an additional level of complexity and flavor that contributes to its unbelievable taste. It hits your palate with a nice balance of flavors that keep you wanting more. Cheers!

Batch 1 and 2 side by side from a bottle.
Aroma is very nice with some light stone fruit and pineapple notes. A moderate herbal funk to it with some light oak. Batch 1 is more oaky with some honey notes to it.
Batch 1 pours a slightly orange while batch 2 is a hazy straw color. Both have moderate sized, thick, white head that shows nice retention. Medium light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is delicate with nice light acidity. Light stone fruit, melon and pineapple notes. A light herbal note with light oak notes. Batch 1 has a lot more honey notes with some light spiciness. Delicate, soft water notes with light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is soft and medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a very nice Saison. Very delicate and balanced with nice fruit and herbal notes. Balanced. I would probably deduct .3 or .4 from this score for batch 1.
