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.

Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is smokey, not much else. Taste is smokey, BBQ. Aftertaste is way too smokey. A little tart too. This while thing is a but muddled for me, not sure what else too do with it.

DavoleBomb (1614) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a tulip. Batch #1, Jan 2013. This gave me quite a nice little clean-up to do when I found some big time gushing. 4.0 A: Murky yellow/orange/brown color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is pretty good and lots of lacing is left. 4.75 S: Smells great. The smokiness is so enticing - porcine city. Doesn’t come off as very sour, it’s more of a funky tanginess. Woody, funky with herbalness, rotting wood, and outdoorsiness. Hay and grassiness. A bit of fruitiness. The smokes blends supremely well with the funk. I couldn’t ask for much more. 4.25 T: Taste is also really great. The sourness comes through stronger than the nose. Porcine smoke again, light sourness with plenty of tanginess, woodiness. Funk gives rotting wood, herbalness, outdoors, and hay/grassiness. Peachy fruitiness. 3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Plenty of light, somewhat spritzy carbonation. Supremely smooth. 4.25 D: Very nice beer overall. Awesome nose and great everywhere else. ★ 985 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 05, 2013

rosenbergh (8865) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2015
750 ml bottle. Batch #1. HHOK17.
Hazy yellow golden color with a small white head. Smoke... a lot of smoke... yeast, mild bitterness and citrus in the aroma. The aroma is really dominated by the smokiness. Sourness, tar, smoke, yeast, mild bitterness and lemon in the flavor. A bit weird but very rich.

ciocanelu (248) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 31, 2015
Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma reminds of a brett heavy saison. Taste is very similar to a lichtenhainer with the smokey-sour combination. The smokey flavors remind me of the traditional german rauchbiers. Very nice combination overall.
