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.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. From notes.

Ann has a great cloudy golden straw appearance with a fluffy white cap.

The aroma is full of honey, white grapes, straw, and pale malts, with the microflora, pear, and lemon zest taking a bit of a backseat.

My first sip starts out nicely sweet with honey and light malts. White grapes and pear add a little bit of fruit character to the sweetness. Straw, grass, and a mineral presence come in later on, followed by a spicy oak note, with the finish ultimately being dry and clean.

Ann has a slightly heavier body than Anna does with a little bit less carbonation, but overall it still has a medium body with a moderate level of crisp carbonation. There is a bit of a zesty tartness that will probably continue to develop over time. It is fairly dry.

Even someone who does not go crazy for saisons has to appreciate the quality of a beer like this. The original beer is delicate and complex, and the aging process has only added to the character.
