Bottle to HF glass
Landed this in trade back in January and have been saving to open on my birthday (7/14), which just so happens to be 2 years to the day it was released (7/14/12).
A: Beautiful straw golden color with 1/4in head that recedes to a light ring around the surface.
S: Light wine barrel funk with some grapes and lemon
T: Everything that went into Ann comes through still: The white wine barrel character and the honey are readily apparent. This is very wine like, but in a very good way.
M: Excellent carbonation level. Very drinkable.
O: There are lots of reports of Ann having fallen off and being a shell of her former self. I never had it fresh so I don't really have a frame of reference, but IMO this is remarkable. I am now eagerly anticipating the new batch and the opportunity to try it again.

Bottle at THE Sour and Saison Tasting, London. This beer was from me. After a very subtle gush, the beer pours lightly hazy yellow with a fine, white foam head. Restrained notes of funky brett in the nose, some delicate citrus, faint grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with a lovely tangerine character, along with mellow citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly bitter to finish with further notes of tangerine and citrus rind, light grass, some orange. Just superbly balanced from start to finish, with nuances that spring up every step of the way. The beer truly keeps on giving after every swallow. Many thanks to mom and dad (Laura and Procter) for getting me this bottle.
