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. MrOrla (3200) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2016

Batch 2. Cannot see a beer getting any better than this. The wine barrel and honey add "Zenith" like characteristics to the original beer. spycow (21) - Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2015
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! ineedbeer (2152) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 20, 2015
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. RichTheVillan (7835) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015

bottle shared at the Moeder Lambic cellar session 2015. 2015 batch bottle. drank side by side with anna. poured a beautiful pale cloudy dark honey colour with a nice white lacing on top. wich kept a lacing on the side of the glass forever. the appearance was like a complete different beer compared to anna. the smell i sout of this world. notes of that clear hill farmstead yeast, white grapes, white wine, oak, melons, sweetness of the honey, sweet citrus, peach, sweet earthe stone fruit pits, sweet pineapple, barnyard, and summer cut grass. the taste was even better as the aroma, it is so incredile full bodied. that anna even tasted weak compared to this. all layered perfectly together, with the sweetness of the honey, the clear wine barrels, and the citrus fruit.some grainy malts, and a small tart kick to the end. it is really smooth. this was everything i was hoping for it would be. this will be hands down the best saison that i would ever drink. the hype is real. this was so great to try. and i’m really glad i had to chance to drink this! lovely all the way
