Ryedenity Crisis is a medium-bodied, unfiltered, rye Belgian saison. Itís slightly sweet flavor is balanced by itís fruity aroma and moderate tartness.

22oz bomber...stored in the closet a little too long Iíd wager. Unfiltered cloudy orange-tan. Massive gushing head when poured..leads me to think infection. One of the worst beers Iíve ever had from California, garbage aroma, and gross rye-saison mix. Flat out bad, this is a waste of good ingredients, a truly awful end product.

This smells horrible; like soured milk. Looks nice though. The flavor is interestingly bad. Not real heavy, a bit sweet, but it just canít quite overcome the outstandingly bad aroma.

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.

It pours a dark orange color with a large off white head. The aroma does not indicate a Saison at all. Thereís some dull toffee, sweet over ripe fruit and a bit of spice. The flavor does have some Belgian yeast spice along with some notes of plum, apple and fig. The dominating sweetness is pretty simple and cloying. It reminds me a bit of circus peanuts or cotton candy. The finish almost saves it with a little balancing spice and rye malt. Not terrible, but pretty boring and simple. Iíll pass on this one.

Pours a soft and pretty clean straw yellow with two fingers of frothy head. Nose is papery and cidery, stale with lots of acetaldehyde. Very very light saison character, hints of spicy/peppery notes and a light tartness. This just isnít cutting it. Light-medium body and dry finish. Meh.

22oz bottle. Clear golden pour, white head. Aroma of spicy rye grain. Dry taste of rye malt, some earthy spice, bready yeast character. Finishes with a bready dryness. Tastes like a session ale, only heavier than what a session normally is. Simple flavors, medium bodied, alcohol well hidden. (3201)

The aroma is very malty with rye as well as grassy and pine hops. The appearance is dark gold with a smallish head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is good with the alcohol well hidden.

Aroma is yeasty and a little fruity, not strong but still inviting. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent pale golden head that leaves a little lacing. Flavor is definitely better than the aroma - not quite full-bodied, but enjoyable, malty, fruity (apple plus a little pear) and yeasty, just a tad sweet and just a tad hoppy. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz and firm body. No crisis here - just a good sippiní brew.

Bomber from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. If ever a name was an object lesson in how to avoid snarky ratings, this would be a top contender. But in fairness, it actually is emphatically a saison in terms of its majority characteristics. So no stylistic crisis, but just not an especially good beer. Light copper pour, moderately carbonated, and an unassuming nose of grain, generic yeast, and phenols. Slightly watery mouthfeel does little for the flavors, which come across like buttery popcorn, mild spice, and a bunch of fruits. Meh.
