A very special brew for our fifth anniversary. Brewed with a blend of rye and pale malts, spicy American hops, and a classic farmhouse yeast, for a tart, peppery body and an amazing dry finish. Hereís to five years of Yazoo!

Pours a hazy orange with a nice firm white head. Rye prominent in the aroma, along with a tripel like yeastiness. Rye definitely adds pepper to the malt backbone, a little sweet with honey and pear.

Cybercat (5172) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Pours a nice clear amber with an average fluffy white head. Crisp, malty aroma has fruity and rye tones and a yeasty hint. Malty aroma has a decided rye component plus some sweet fruity tone and just a hint of honey. Texture is fairly smooth with a strong fizz. Overall, not too shabby.

Finhead (1632) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2011
A cloudy yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma is fruity yet a little spicy with notes of orange juice. The medium body has a slightly oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is sweet, but also a little earthy.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with little head and aromas of orange, lemon, honey, pear and grass. Fairly nice light, fruity and sweet aromas. Flavor is very similar, but it seems like the booze is sticking out, but other than that, I really like this saison.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Re-rating after 3 years. Enjoying the saison style better now, and the rye and spices added to this one is really nice.

A copper color with white head. The aroma is nice with some apricot, brown sugar, citrus, and rye. Flavor is somewhat bitter with caramel, brown sugar, citrus, and rye. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall I dig it

Iím digging on Yazoo Rye Saison, my first beer from the Nashville brewery. The rye supplies a pleasant surprising tang that immediately hits the tongue before the brew settles into typical Saison territory. Still, that first hit of rye keeps me coming back to the glass. The finish is classic Saison (and, itís fine, go ahead a bitch about how all saisons taste alike. I donít mind.) But the rye adds a subtle layer to this beer that seperates it from the run-of-the-mill French farmhouse ales. Definitely worth grabbing a bottle.

Tasted 8/20/10. 12oz bottle. Activated pour produces a hazy body with a bright orange golden hue. Ring and skim layer of off-white head. Aromas of candy citrus yeast and a grainy peppery note. Medium bodied with a rich mouthfeel and good palate. Sticky sweet malts and a decent peppery bitter flavor. Good dose of orange and mild tangy grapefruit. Good tingling effervescence. Nice and fruity with a dry peppery finish, pretty straight up.
