3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

At first I thought "hmmmm, maybe I just donít like this style" but after trying similar beers of the same style I was horrified of this brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pours a nice gold that is a touch hazy. Nice tall foamy white head, good retention and some real nice lace.
S: Aromas of yeast citrus, honey, banana, and spice.
T: Much much like the aroma. Yeasty and spicy for sure. Very mild banana notes with a crisp citrus bite. There is a doughy quality to this one and a mild hop character to round things out.
M: On the lighter side of medium, smooth and tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2010 Color is like a clear apple juice, headless. Aroma is sweet, like honeysuckle and pale UME. Flavor is very easygoing, malty at first and then sweet and flowery in the end. Lastly, some rye spice kicks in. i really like this, Iím sure I could drink it by the pitcher if theyíd let me. Bottle from Whole Foods, Nashville.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Frugal MacDoogalís in Nashville. Pours a very cloudy golden color with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is barnyard funk, Belgian yeast, banana, and rye. Flavor is - whoa, this isnít a hefeRYEzen? Banana and clove are big here, with just a little pale malt and funk and some rye. Some slight pepper as well. Medium-bodied and a little less lively on the palate than Iíd like. Not at all to style, but not a bad beer if you ignore that fact.
