Anna Valiquette Hill (1902-1993) was Edward’s sister, whose memory we honor with her namesake Farmstead® ale crafted with Vermont wildflower honey.

We aged a small portion of the beer aged atop raspberry and cherry pomace from the 2019 harvest season (Elmore Roots and Allenholm Farm, respectively). The result highlights the essence of each fruit within the iconic canvas of Anna®—a variant worthy of her graceful, distinctive middle name.

L -- Honestly does not look that appealing. Quite still in the glass with just a small ring of suds. Semi murky nectarine hued body. Even decanting carefully there is some sediment in suspension
S -- Complete turnaround here. Rich aromas of fruit leather, cherry pie, raspberry jam, lemon peel, barnyard funk, and dried floral
T -- Noticeably tarter than base Anna. The cherry and raspberry carry through but are offset somewhat by the funky lemony acidity from the mixed fermentation. Tiny bit of diacetyl in the finish, but it's barely noticeable
F -- Slippery and easy drinking. Not overwhelmingly puckering or tannic
O -- Hard to discern the differences between this "series" of fruited Anna beers and their Harvest series of fruited beers, where they don't talk much about what's in the base
