No, that should work outside the annotator just
as well.

Try the following: on the JCas that you're working
with (and that throws the error), grab the type
system (with getTypeSystem()) and print it out.
Something like

It's not the easiest format to read, but you
should see all the features there.  If you
don't see the "reason" feature, you know that
it's not been loaded from the descriptor for
some reason.  If you do see the feature and
you still get the error, then maybe there's
an issue with your extra-annotatorial code ;-)
