Yazoo Brewing Co. Saison de Bois
What the brewers say
"Saison aged in 20-year-old French oak Bordeaux red wine puncheon casks."
What our panel thought
"Spicy, funky nose, with red fruit, minty phenols, overripe mango, tangerine, lemon. Citrus-juicy sweetness up front, moderate sourness; pleasant white grape, pear. Dry, woodsy finish adds to white-wine impression. Lively."
What our editors thought
"Dry, punchy nose—faint dried pepper, dried berries, orange peel, gasoline, oak. The sip brings a tannic bite behind mellow orange citrus and white wine, with a chunky, bitter, Brett funk adding complexity."
