COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pecan Wood Smoked Saison Crafted in the once commonplace, Old World tradition of bière de coupage, young, dry hopped ale is blended with old, barrel-aged sour beer fermented with native yeast. A portion of the malt was smoked over pecan wood at The Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, Texas. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally conditioned.

Update: Our original label application for Salt Lick Pecan Wood Smoked Saison was rejected by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC), after having been approved by the Federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau (TTB). We have renamed this beer "Censored" for sale in Texas.

ej (687) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2014
Slow gusher, pours a very cloudy pale orange with a fluffy head. Funky saison aroma with notes of tar, smoke, hay and gras. Taste is refreshingly tart with hints of smoke and wood. Fairly dry but also a slight alcoholic burn. Body is medium with fairly high levels of co2.

jesperhammer (2843) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
12-JUL-2014, bottle @Kregme. Present from Topdanmark for hosting a tasting earlier this year. Hazy, milky yellow with low yellow head. Aroma is huge smoke. After some time I get some fruit, citrus, orange. But mostly smoke. Taste is Smoke, wheat, Wood, funk, lemon, orange, yeast. Tart with a touch of salt. Creamy, medium carbonation and body. A strange beast. Works better than feared, though.

Scopey (6321) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Finally got round to drinking this! Bottle from Beers of Europe. It pours cloudy golden with a decent white head. The nose is earthy, wood, smoke, barnyard, lemon peel and some sherbet. The taste is crisp, smooth sourness, smoke, farmyard, mild acidity, salted lemon, grapefruit, toasted nut, straw and dough with a dry, smoked finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Interesting combination of flavours all meld together well. Very nice indeed.

yngwie (13218) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. A gusher, producing an unclear, yellowish orange body and a small, dense, white head. Rather smoked aroma with a citrusfruity touch. Woody and faintly nutty, faintly funky. Quite fruity flavor with lots of citrus. Some pale malts, a good dash of smoke and acidity and some bitterness. Full to medium body, nicely carbonated, quite high. Mostly dry, but with some fruity sweetness. Lasting finish with a nice blend of citrus and smoke, and a zesty bitterness. Tasteful, interesting and pleasant, could easily drink more of this. 140608

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2014
750 ml bottle acquired via trade on BA. Thanks! Pours a nice darker amber golden hue, well hazed with a darker slant overall. Frothy offwhite head sits atop and sticks around well overall. Aromas are a bit tart, lactic and gentle smokey and a bit salty. Quite lovely and rich, gentle yogurt but nice straw, smokey bread and earth. Nice stuff. Initial is tart and lively, bigger lemony life with some lactic slant, nice tartness and bready elements. A touch salty, the middle shows a richer smoke element, tasty and luscious, a bit meaty and earthy overall. Sufficient and firm. A bit twangy, lactic, dry and sharp as we hit the backend. Firmer dry sour elements, not sour but firm twangy dryness really hits the palate. A bit smokey, touches of meat, cherrywood and mesquite. Touches of straw, sourness, a bit salty. Really runs the gambit. Firmly sour up front but the smoke kicks up nicely into the middle and backend. A bit lactic, yogurty and sour as we taper out. Nice and sour stuff, smokey, fruity, really does some work. Complex and lovely, especially the nose and as we get further into it.
