10 ounce sample on tap at Dadís Kitchen in Sacramento, CA during Sacramento Beer Week. The aroma is a bit sweet and sugary. There are a fair amount of dusty horseblanket yeast esters present. This also has a bit of an awkward minty and chocolate aroma, too. Weird. Moderately transparent mahogany body with a very small off-white head. Starts kind of chocolatey and a bit salty. Actually, this is rather salty. A little spiced in the middle, before this becomes thick and syrupy later on. The finish is dominated by the dusty banana yeast esters. Just a little too different. Too big, and too cloying for a saison. Needs to be drier.

Drake (8291) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. A bit of a gusher. Pours a clear amber color with a thin fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy rye, apple, earth, bread and a near metallic note. The taste is rye, tea, apples, pale malts, faint caramel. Medium bodied. Weird one. Neither good nor bad. Just weird.

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.

Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Thereís a little rye in here, a little spice, and a little of the barnyard funk youíd expect from a saison. Not enough of the spicy, fruity esters to make this interesting, though.

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 arenít 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.

Clear amber, some visible carbonation, off-white finger of rocky foam with low retention. Moderate lacing.Sweet malts, slightly metallic hop notes. Bit of alcohol and yeast. Bready malts up front, backed by a drying, bitter hops aftertaste. Moderate carbonation, light-to-medium body. Saison, kind of. Ale, sure. Rye? Maybe. Falls short on all three, though.

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 itís retired now.

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.
