Don’t think I’ve had a rye saison before. Comes together very nicely though. Orange with great head and lacing. Rye is the predominant flavour with some bazooka bubble gum essence. Soft carbonation. Light sour finish. Tastes like rye bread. On tap at an impromptu sampler served up by Chris at Ebenezer Kezar’s.

Keg at the Earl of Essex as ’1 shot Alice’ deep amber pour with a small head. The nose is peachy funk, raspberry, apricot, caramel, taste is pretty similar. Light lemon sherbet hop, earthy grass. Caramel and summer fruit on the finish. Light body. Solid stuff. Ok.

[ Tap ][ 4oz ][ @Max’s ][ $3 ][ Mini Weizen-glass ][ 7/23/14 ]
Hazy tea amber, dense white head. Heavily citric nose, lime dominates alongside light cream, spicy grain, very juicy with moderate bitterness. Buttery lactic front palate, tons of hay bitterness with small bubbled, active carbonation bolstering thin body. Mid is dry, woody, considerable perfume into the heavy co2 bitter finish, toasted grain dominating. Balanced and spritzy, some masterful yeast control but all over the place, needs coherence.
