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.

Dunt (301) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Bottle generously provided by Mishuggah for our Sunday mini whale tasting. Thanks for bringing out the instawhale Steve! Pours a clear dehydrated pee color with about a fingers worth of white head. Nose is pretty balanced between the saison base, the honey in the base, some oak, and some light tartness. The flavor is less on the saison character and more on sweet honey and tartness. The tartness compliments the honey nicely. Light to moderate mouthfeel, light carbonation, gentle tartness, and a mOderate finish. A good beer, not the be all end all beer that everyone has been making it out to be. It’s a pleasant drinker, especially on a muggy summer day. With that said, I’d have a hard time pulling the trigger on trading the beers this is going for.

Bottle pours a bright golden body with thin white lacing. Nose is tart stone fruits, peach and wine barrel. Mouthfeel is beautifully executed - tart wine barrel and perfect amounts of both salinity and acidity; notes of sour stone fruits, mango, sour lactic yogurt and lime. The rarity of this is kind of a shame, because it was actually quite drinkable.

750 ml bottle sample shared by a local from notes. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had crackery malts, barnyard funk, stone fruit, honey, hay, pale malts, citrus, oak, light vinous character, so much going on, well worth the taste.

_angst_ (4395) - 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.

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.
