Bottom of the can stamped "Best by 07/22/2018."
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a glossy burnt to copper color with no head or lace. Decent transparency about it. No matter how hard I tried to pour.
The aroma had a huge sweet bready/Belgian yeastiness up front. Light sweet earthy to grassy to honey and a light whiff of banana estery sort of appeal.
The flavor yields to the sweet side of the bready/yeastiness. Banana estery sweetness, yes, but somewhat mild. Mild aftertaste of sweet bread/Belgian yeastiness and a touch of honey.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Extremely bready and honey smooth finish.
Overall, not a bad saison, but I feel like the yeast wasn't entirely used properly in this beer as I would have hoped for a slight spicy component to come out and that didn't show up.

Nice dry saison. You can taste the honey yet the beer isn't sweet at all. Some nice spicy notes from the yeast as well as a touch of banana/bubblegum esters.

Crusher Saison. And I love honey like a fucking grizzly bear. Nice mix.

3.13/5: The sweetness conceals the rustic qualities too much for me, but at least the honey keeps the palate dry

Mild honey aroma with a touch of spice and yeast. Pours a clear light amber with a dusting of white head. Nice spice profile on the beginning, with a dry earthy finish. Medium body, and a nice drink as the days start to warm up.

Snagged a single for about $2.50 very fair for a pounder into a pint glass.
A - Color is a very clear dark amber yellow beer with a 1/2 inch of frothy head that seems to fizz out rather quickly to a decent lace.
S - Belgium yeast and honey smells good and sweat.
T - Very smooth balance of peppery saison and sweet wildflower honey. Actually quite surprised it drinks like a mead but taste like a beer!
M - Smooth crisp body very easy to crush at almost 7%

Overall this may be one of the better beers I have had for the night. Not too much saison dryness and mends perfectly with the honey which also tends to dry out a beer when used. Not sure how they did it but this is the perfect combination!

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

Pours gold with a fluffy head that dissipates in a minute or so

Smell-Belgian yeast, honey, flowers, and some spice

Taste- Belgian yeast and big honey flavor. Sweetness gives way to some tart fruit flavor.

Mouthfeel- Less crisp than I prefer in a saison. Medium body.

Overall- Tastes good. Not super saison-like though.
