look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

100919 stamp on label. Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A: Clearish golden with 1-finger foamy off-white head with decent retention but no lacing.

S: Lager-like aroma with pilsner malt sweetness with some grassiness and herbal notes.

T: Flavor is not distinctive but still pleasant with pilsner maltiness, slightly sweet with herbal, earthy notes. Hoppiness is low with low bitterness.

M: Dry finish and average-medium carbonation on a light body.

O: Liked it but kind of generic saison overall.

Pours a lovely, burnished orange-gold with a dense, 2.5 inch, bright white head and a slight haze to the clarity. Nose expresses notes of clover and fermented honey. Taste consistent with nose; however, it's all fairly light and unassuming and disappears from the palate fairly quickly. Mouthfeel is light in body with a carbonation shy of lively. All and all, I love the concept of these beers but the complexity is a little lacking and the honey doesn't really pop in the flavor profile.

i had no idea these guys were doing the little bottles now, thats so awesome, and makes their beer way more accessible. this was at a bar for just eight bucks, more than worth it! this is a pretty unreal beer from oxbow, yet again. a honey saison, apparently a series where each one uses a single source of honey, and in this case, the source is maine wild blueberries, there is no actual fruit in this beer, and it looks like they do several other single source honey editions of this same beer, which shows a ton of honey, funk, and complexity, yet remains a beer i could drink indefinitely, a highlight of a recent incredible few days of beer drinking! pale straw colored ale here with tall white head, gorgeous, lightly cloudy, effervescent. it smells insane, tons of honey in here, a mature and familiar oxbow fermentation profile, earthy malts, and the floral fruity honey so well integrated, its not sweet to me, but its the absolute essence of the honey, like right from the hive, waxy and pure, raw, and wholly from nature, a single moment, there is instant reverence and sex appeal here for me. the flavor is every bit as compelling, and i find myself thinking that this might be the best honey beer i have ever had. its so funky, like some of the funk must also come from the honey, and i can get past generic honey to a specific honey, even though i have never tasted it by itself, it takes me to a little mountain blueberry match in the summer sun, before the berries come, the blossoms pop, and bees buzz and nature breathes, its a wonderful biological metabolism and its conveyed through this beer, i absolutely adore it. great carbonation, some tartness, no trace of its strength, lingering honey residue and bretty funk, tannins, and grain. its as good as it gets, rustic farmhouse beer at its final evolution. dying to try the other honey source editions. this is not to be missed!

Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a one inch white head that left rings of lacing. Smell is extremely mild with wheat and a hint of blueberries present. Tastes of wheat, blueberries and honey. I expected far more blueberry flavor. Light side of medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth mouth feel.

Cloudy golden body, white ring some light lacing. Smell is wheat heavy with honey and trace amounts of blueberry. Taste is even more so toward the wheat and less the honey and blueberry, in fact the blueberry is barely there on most sips. Feel is wheaty, sneaky thick, chewy and smooth. The wife liked it
