2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
December 2012. 20 oz. bottle. Hazy orange brew with a white head. Aromas of grain, bread, yeast and malt. This one is a bit off and out of balance. Maybe that is why it’s retired now.

Bottle poured into glass. Light in color, goldish hue with a orange tint. Aroma is somewhat like cereal, a tad wheaty with slight hints of fruits. Not really all that exciting but a half way decent beer.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Light gold and hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is honey, lemon, and peppery hops. Taste is light biscuit with sweetness and slight sourness with a bit of hop bitterness. $5/22oz

Crystal clear golden pour (unfiltered?). Not much of an aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with honeysuckle and a grainy rye finish. Tastes nothing at all like a saison. It wasn’t bad, just boring.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly cloudy yellow orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of rye malt, belgian yeast, spices and lemon citrus. Taste of rye malts, yeast, slightly spicy, lemon citrus, slightly dry finish. Perfect carbonation, perfect mouthfeel, incredibly easy to drink, ABV well hidden. Lots going on in this beer but everthing comes together perfect with no one thing overpowering the others. I loved this beer, cant believe its not getting higher ratings. Perfect beer for spicy foods.
