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.

gendv138 (1330) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2014
From notes, consumed 8/28/2013. 750 ml bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Bottle dated January 2013, batch 1. Hazy honey yellow with 2.5 fingers of fluffy off-white head. Great lacing. Aromas of smoky notes, bacon, light yeast and funk. Tastes of smoke, barbecue, citrus, tart, funk. Medium body with a semi-dry and smoky finish. Smoke lingers past the finish.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a huge off-white foamy head (bit of gusher) with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of smoked malt is pretty dominant with light cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is a mostly dominated by smoked malt with some funky barnyard notes and a tart finish being also noticeable. Body is light with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not an everyday kind of beer with the amount of smoke that can be found here and not really a saison anymore but nonetheless I still enjoyed this beer.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma was malty with fruit, citrus and soft smoke. Flavor was lightly sweet with fruit, salt, citrus, lemon, smoke and had some earthiness

Beerconnaiseur (92) - BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
Pale pour with aromatic hints of wood, banana, candy, hard to decipher. A mish mash. Tasting this saison, the taste shows the aroma is over light and under bodied. Feels like a basic beer without vision and added on the pecan wood to give it character. My philosophy is to produce a strong basis to believe in... and then supplement.

jrob21 (2560) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from a monster jester king box a while back. Definite smoke action and it is a smoke I’m not particularly find of. It is over an otherwise light and delicate beer which kind of just tastes like smoke to me. There is am underlying salty sourness working but that gets overpowered prett quickly. Ok just not my personal fave.

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.
