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.
