COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ann is the wine barrel aged version of Anna (1902-?), our grandfathers 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.

Absolute masterpiece shared with ernesto987. First thing I noticed was the bees wax dipping and the great aroma that gave off, i know its a little detail but its part of what makes Hill Farmstead Special. Pours a cloudy pale straw color with billowy mirangue head that retains and leaves behind great lacing. The aroma is just out of this world. Aroma is tart lactic acid, floral perfumes, citrus fruits, musty basement(in a good way), and a mixture of spices. Initial mouthfeel is amazing and smooth/creamy and the flavors start hitting right away. Medium sweetness and floral notes with light fruits give away to tart lactic acid and citrus elements. The finish is dry and welcoming and leads you to want to take another sip. This is the type of craft and attention to detail that you rarely find. STUNNING.

From bottle while working. Pours a hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Aroma is surprisingly light, wheaty, fresh, pale malty, acidic white wine, honey, vanilla and some oak. Taste is sour, vinous, smooth, oaky dry, spicy and citric. Average carbonation and a juicy texture.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. 2014 vintage. Smakuje jak dość nisko wysycony, wysokiej klasy, brettowy brut. Bardzo intensywny charakter białego wina, genialne bretty. Wyśmienite piwo, na pewno ścisła czołwka najlepszych saisonw jakie piłem.

May 12, 2016. Bottle at Hill Farmstead day at Warpigs. Bottled October 2014.
Light hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, funky, light floral and herbal with lemon, peach, grape skins, green apple, wood, minerals, hay, oak and white wine. Taste is tart, fruity, funky and very light sweet. Light to medium bodied, slightly dry yet smooth, average carbonation. Finish is very light sweet with grain and and notes of tropical fruits, tart and fruity notes of lemon, green apple and gooseberries, some slight astringent dry notes of grape skins and oak, funk and white wine.
Great one!

Bottle with a HUGE thanks to Brandon!! Pour is cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is musty white grape, with light oak, faint chardonnay, and light funk. Flavor is deep and earthy with more must and light smooth oak notes. Beautiful light sweetness and evolving funk as it warms. Really liking the evolution of this. Super drinkable.

jredmond (8046) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2016
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.
