Jimmythespoon (438) - CYPRUS - MAY 27, 2013
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.

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 itís 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.

solidfunk (3007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Donít think Iíve 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 Kezarís.

Draft @ Holy Grale. Funky Belgian yeast and caramel rye malt aroma. Clear copper with a large off-white head. Slightly funky spicy rye malt flavor with a light herbal hop finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Keg at the Earl of Essex as í1 shot Aliceí 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.

McNeillR (977) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Crystal amber colour, wee white head. Dank yeast nose, sprinkle of hops. Earthy and bready taste, crunchy rye middle and a chewy fruit finish. Thereís a lot going on at the same time here that doesnít leave room for anything to properly excel.

Acid303 (398) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 25, 2013
Pint @ Birrasana (Blanes), served in Plastic glass. Collaboration between Toccalmato, Hopcraft and Marina. Pours hazy orange/amber with medim white creamy head. Orange peel, sweet malts and hints of yeast on the nose. The taste is so citrusy because of the blend hops, yeast and Rye. I missed a bit more malts and yeast flavour. The palate is dry as hell. Medium body, good carbonation. Needs more balance, anyways drinkable and refreshing.
