22 ounce bottle pours an orangish color, aroma of orange zest, grapefruit, pine resin and some spicy yeast. Flavor is the same, didnt taste like a regular sassion.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 Pale gold with a white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is orange peel and the slightest hint of sourdough. The taste has some rye and yeasty qualities as well as a bit hit of orange, and an appreciable amount of bitterness to finish. I think the rye/grain flavour and aroma could be played up quite a bit more while still making this drink like a saison.

Tasted at Total Wine tasting. Least favorite of four. It was too citrusy and a hint of pine but not something I can drink a lot of.

A 22-oz bottle shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a hazy orange with a light tan head and a lot of tiny bubbles in the beer. The nose was barnyard, with that slightly moldy damp hay smell, with citrus thrown in. Medium to full body and a slick and very smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is very complex with new tastes coming forward as you progress, including the barnyard, bubblegum, citrus, vanilla, and rye. These flavors continued into the finish, and the beer just more enjoyable as time went on. The alcohol was perfectly hidden. This complex and very tasty beer defies style. It is what it is, and that is very good.

Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed a bottle together via facebook chat. This had so much yeast in the bottom of the bottle and when rolled it looked like a lava lamp. When poured it was opaque and golden brown. A huge head seemed to take forever to fade. This beer was perfectly named. To put it into a single style is unfortunate because it kept changing. Some times it was a Belgian, and was like an Orval with rye. Other times it was like a hefe with bubblegum. Other times it brought out spices. What a fun beer to enjoy! So multifaceted and so interesting. It did not hurt at all that it was so tasty, too. I liked it a lot and it was one of those beers that is more than the sum of its parts.

pours orange with a small white fizz. Has a grassy earthy aroma and the flavor is close to the same.

I have only one really good Knee Deep beer. And this is my least favorite. A very caramely saison. Way to sweet before the spice kicks in. And the two just aren’t on the same page. Leaves a viscous taste on the top of the mouth like raisins. Tastes like a 1/2 quad / 1/2 dubbel to me.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a gloomy golden almost brass color with a small creation of head which eventually dies out forming an O-ring. The aroma has a grassy aroma of hops and a sweet balance of rye or sourdough bread and reminds me a lot of how an abbey tripel smells. The flavor comes across as spicy with a minor taste of rye and a grassy plant like finish, but other than that, this saison lacks substance and taste as though it is heavily watered down.

Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a quick to fade white ring. Some very light lace. Aromas are grainy, malty, peanut shells, light esters and phenols, black pepper and 3M scotch-tape. Light banana and vanilla as well. Flavors are way too sweet for a saison. Lots of bubble gum, plastic, waxy, banana. Light rye spiciness. Odd candy-ish ester. Lively bubbles, medium dry. Not really flawed as a belgian beer, but not a great saison, and not particularly what I want to drink.

22oz bottle. Rating #10. Clear medium golden pour with a nice white head. Sweet apple aroma, very malty with a little rye spice. Light flavor, smooth eith a nice little rye spice, it’s still a little too light for me. (1971)
