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.

Poured from bottle in official Jester King wine-style beer glass. Pours a very hazy yellow with a fluffy white head and minimal lacing. Bottle actually foamed for a bit once I opened it up. Aroma is very sour with a light pecan smoke flavor. Front taste is sour that fades in pecan wood smoke. Lingering taste is sour on the tongue but an effervescent smoke in the nose and roof of the mouth. Slightly sharp mouthfeel. Very reminiscent of their other wheat based sour beers, like Bonnie the Rare and Boxer’s Revenge, but with a smoke hint. I’m not really much of a rauchbier fan, but this is a great balance between smoke and sour. Mostly tried this out of curiosity. Probably would not buy again because if I want a soured wheat beer, I would go with one of their other options. Still a good beer overall.

Ferris (2017) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle - Batch 1 - Funky salty yeast with lime and other citrus and oak smoke notes. Foamy as all hell, nothing worse than watching half a bottle gush out as you open it. Cloudy and hazy gold with a white head. Pecan or woody sweetness is there but quickly gets to the good citrus and salty goodness. A nice interesting Gose, but the oakiness is a bit over the top.

This one poured a hazy darker yellow with a whtiehead. Aroma was of definite smoke, some lemons, wheat and light fruit. Flavor was rustic saisony character with smoke laden background. SDefinitely an interesting blend of flavors

Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends, shared with esp0r. Hazy orange body, big white head. Aroma is light smoky, sour, with a mild malt presence. Taste is sour with smoke and salt, and light crisp malts, fruity towards the finish. Nice and refreshing.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - FEB 18, 2014
A very unique, interesting beer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a light white head. Smells like smoky pecans with some lemon. Lots of lemon in the taste, with the smokiness coming in at the end, to give a bit of a sour aftertaste. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marheb (1748) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
Le liquide est doré et crystallin avec une mousse active. Les effluves enboucanées emportent des parcelles de blé suri dans un parfum d’une ambiguité intriguante. En bouche, c’est moins amical, la fûmée est astringente et mêlée aux tannins et à une salinité modérée, créée une finale qui incite peu à la récidive. Une compagnie divertissante mais pas si agréable.
