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!

12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Few loose bits of lace. Good spicy orange citrus aroma, nice yeast character. Medium body. Smooth, sort of soft/crisp lighter carbonation, with a more dry finish. Nice moderate bitter taste, light zest, some light sweetness in the finish. Solid, bright, refreshing rye saison.

Draft at the new brewery. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a tiny white head. This one has a lot in common- in its look, smell, and taste- with a hefewiezen. Aroma of farmhouse funk, citrus fruits, pale malts, rye, yeast, pepper, and clove. Flavor of rye, pepper, clove, farmhouse, pale malts, citrus, hay, apple, and banana. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a spicy, peppery mouthfeel. Nice spice kick. Interesting take on a saison.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2010
4/27/10 - 12oz bottle. Huge fluffy white head - watch it! The aroma is light Belgian yeast and oxidized homebrew. The flavor is light Belgian, a bit watery, but sweet and spicy. There is also a hint of metal.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottled. Poured hazy medium orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up jammy darker fruits and honey with rye and sour barrel-ly accents. The flavor found warm honey and chewy rye bread at the core.. black pepper and rye plus sour fruit skins around.. finished sticky with sour skins and spicy rye. Medium-bodies and a bit too sour on the palate.. just ok.

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Cloudy brownish amber, and a thin foamy beige head. Definate rye aromas up front, with some more typical saison funk in the background.Very tart flavor at first, then a mix of rye, lemon and herbs. Seems a little odd, but I liked it.

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.
