Yazoo Brewing Brett Saison
What the brewers say
"Saison fermented with our house Wallonian yeast strain and two citrus-character-producing Brettanomyces strains."
What our panel thought
"Zesty as hell—lemon-lime, white pepper, berries, wood, dry hay. Bright, crisp flavor; beautiful balance of light fruit, hints of pine and citrus, with a light spiciness that persists through the finish. Woody Brett notes in aftertaste. Pleasingly dry, with medium tartness balancing the limited residual malt. Light and refreshing despite the complexity, this is a fantastic beer."
What our editors thought
"Right down the proverbial saison middle, with a touch of tropical Brett in the nose balanced by spicy phenols. The sip is intense—a strong carbonic bite fades into soft citrus and a hint of bitter greens for structure."
