Pecan Wood Smoked Saison Crafted in the once commonplace, Old World tradition of bičre 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.

Mesjasz (184) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Piana - Duza, wolno opada. Zapach - Kwaskowa wedzonosc. Gaz - Mocno nasycone, nawet po otwarciu butelki troche mi wystrzelilo i piana lala sie z butelki. Smak - Tu jest bardzo ciekawie. Lekka slonosc, pozniej kwasnie a nastepnie wedzona slodowosc zostajaca juz do konca. Ogolnie - Po tym piwie spodziwalem sie mocniejszej soli, ale jest ledwo musniecie. Ale absolutnie nie czuje sie zawiedzony, bo okazalo sie naprawde pyszne, bardzo interesujace w przemianach nut smakowych z kazdym lykiem.

jcartamdg (2355) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Pours a hazy light yellow with no head. Aroma of smoke, wheat with a touch of funk. Taste follows, all smoke. This is a bit hard to drink

kevinator (1231) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Another unique beer from Jester King. Big aroma of smoked malt with a sense of cooked fruit. Nice color with a decent white head. Medium to light palate. Flavors were blended well with the underlying smoke essence being careful to not mask the touches of citrus and sour fruit with just enough hops bitterness.

Bottle shared @ home from Brewberry, Paris - FR. Color: hazy pale blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: sour notes and grassy presence. Small floral notes. Taste: good sour notes well balanced with grassy finish. Amazing peat presence, really great notes and amazing. Good surprising !!!! Aftertaste: sour finish and floral bouquet ! Amazing composition beer ! For the balance of sour and peat, it’s a must to try!

bytemesis (4251) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle with thanks to Homer! Pours hazy orange, large off-white head, dissipates leaving lots of residual and lacing. Aroma is smoky, campfire, belgian yeast, black pepper and hay, some lemon. Flavor is light sweet initially, giving way to a light tartness. Fairly smoky but not overpowering. Belgian yeast provides hay, mowed grass, black pepper notes as well as a touch of funky musty dusty flavors. Fairly prominent lemon/citrus notes as well. Lightish body, champagnelike carbonation. This one is underrated IMO.

This beer was probably my favorite one that I had in all of 2013. Lots of evolution throughout the tasting, a somewhat funky flavor, with detection of some slightly fruity flavors, that eventually transform into a nice dark wood finish. Beautiful to sip on.

probstblueribbon (3242) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, shared with judges. Very murky golden, minimal head. Strong smoke, phenolic, sour organic acids, a little funk (Lambic), minerals, citrus. Medium mouth feel, relaxed carbonation. Reasonable fruitiness and some Saison spiciness, light funk, citrus; lightly tart, moderately high bitterness, a spiciness in the feel. Interesting if not totally successful.

Terminus (3328) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle-Jan 2013 batch 1 Sampled as I rate it Pours hazy light orange hue with a small soapy fizzy white head with lots of bubble size, carbonation and some sparse lacing. Nice looking brew as the head settled pretty fast. Nose is bigtime smokey, but just in a beachwood sort of way. Flavors are tart, slightly woody, lite smoke, lots of fruits-peach, orange peal, and maybe a tad of lite melons. Lovely long sweet, tart and smokey finish-very long. A great brew, why the low ratings? I dont get it. great brew! give it some age and it will shine!
