This was a very good beer, deep amber and hazy, nose is full of fruit, well balanced, slight bitterness with the right amount of maltiness. Excellent.

[ 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.

Keg @ The Earl Of Essex 2013/5/7 From the One Shot Series. Earl of Essex description: "Alice is made from a small percentage of Rye Crystal malt using the Belgian Saison yeast. It is very hoppy and they have used Sorachi, Stella, Simcoe, Galaxy and Marynka hops in late and dry hopping." For me it’s a very pleasant beer. The Belgian yeast on the nose and despite the description a very rye-like flavour. Medium carbonation. Good amount of dryness.

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.

Crystal amber colour, wee white head. Dank yeast nose, sprinkle of hops. Earthy and bready taste, crunchy rye middle and a chewy fruit finish. There’s a lot going on at the same time here that doesn’t leave room for anything to properly excel.
