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. Here’s to five years of Yazoo!

Pours mostly clear with a thin white head. Aroma of honey, berry, tart unripe fruit, citrus. Taste is mildly tart and acidic, lemon and grapes. The rye does add a more earthy bitter side that is good. Good smooth texture. I wasn’t a fan of this initially then I tried a bottle that had been on the shelf for about 6 months. I think that helped to dull some of the off flavors and gave a chance for everything to blend better.

Bottled. Poured medium gold, cloudy, foamy off-white head. Nose is yeasty, horse-blanket, citrus. Flavor is tart, lemony, spicy. Hoppy, dry finish. Refreshing.

Yellow gold in color. Sour nose of sour grains, nice hint of funk. Flavors of lemon and more sourness. Surprisingly firm in texture. I agree with Avengedpoet, "Definitely a unique beer, though not entirely enjoyable." That about sums it up. That being said, my buddy tasting with me enjoyed it a bit more.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Pours a dark golden color with decent-sized head. Aroma is grass, bbq sauce, lemons, and a variety of other spices/fruits/unnamed things. One of the most unique aromas I’ve experienced. Taste is quite grassy, lemony, and has a decided metallic twinge to it. Slightly sweet and very strange. Definitely a unique beer, though not entirely enjoyable.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Bottle shared by Avengedpoet. Pours a lightly hazed golden with a head that consists of large co2 bubbles. Aroma is grass, yeasts, fruit, malt. Flavor is vegetal, bitter, fruity, rye. Very strange brew.

SpringsLicker (3466) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Pours a hazy deep golden yellow with a fleeting white head. Sweet candy malt, fruity aroma. Lightly sweet yet not overly complex. Somewhat middle of the road for the style, but a beer that is well done and it is certainly nice to see the effort from a local brewer.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Clear orange-yellow with a big soft off white head. Aroma is spicy rye malt, sweet, some light fruitiness, esters. Taste is a nice fruitiness from the yeast that plays with the peppery rye malt. Solid and spicy. A cool saison.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Smells bizarrely of ketchup. Beautiful looking beer, medium brown. Tastes strangely like ketchup on rye. Really weird. Probably best served cold with McDonald’s cheeseburgers?

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Bottle by way of theisti. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. The nose is fruity and spicy yeast. The taste is sour fruit, spice and yeast with some rye in the background. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Not bad – interesting beer. Thanks Tim!

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Pours a hazy orange, looks like a hefi. Smalll fizzy head that fizzles out fast. Fruity smell of dried fruit and rye, hint of malts. Taste of orange, spice with a dry tarty finish. Didn’t flatter me, but Saisons really aren’t my thing either.
