August 2012 bottle poured into teku

A: Pours a very hazy rustic orange with a fluffy yellow/orange tinged head. Nice lacing. Head dissipated to a dense slightly off-white foam.

S: Sweet & sour. Lemons, cracked-wheat, honey, bready yeast,

T: Tart funk, lemons, blood oranges, a bit of white grapefruit. Full saison wheat malt backbone, nice subtle spices, a bit of toasted wheat, a hint of honey sweetness

M: I adore the mouthfeel on HF saisons and Anna is no different; so full and creamy.

O: This beer is the real deal; I love HF saisons and this may be my favorite. With nearly a year of age on this bottle there's so much nice funk and sourness. You can taste the brett lambicus. HF's house ale yeast is bacteria heaven! I can't get enough! This bottle of Anna was just short of spectacular for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours from a bottle into a bruery snifter
it is a light yellow color with slight head maybe 1/4 inch and little lacing
smell is that farmhouse type funk
taste is farmhouse funk followed by a lemon slight tart
mouthfeel is a nice crisp beer good carbonation
overall this is a nice saison slight tart and easy drinking
although i tend to like a lot of HF saison better would get again
