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.

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.

Bottle 750ml. Pours hazy blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of smoke, peat, fruits. Taste is of smoke, bitterness, citrus, peat, acidity. Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation. Overall: Way too much smoke. No-brainer drain pour.

mathieuc (2958) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of smoked ham and bile (just a hint). Taste is of fruits, smoke and lightly tart. Average body and carbonation and mouthfeel is lightly juicy. A weird beast. Not sure I would want to drink more than this small glass but it was still interesting and not offputting to me.

tom10101 (4789) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. B1, 2013. Hazy gold with a small white head leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is super heavily peat and iodine forward and medicinal, the only other similar beer I had so far is Brau’Art / h.Ertie Lambik Peated Weizen. It completely dominated everything else and only some fainted lemon notes and herbal notes succeeds to come through. Taste is unsurprisingly very similar with very strong peat, iodine and medicinal presence alongside a rather srong salty presence and lemony notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Ever lasting peaty finish. It’s completely unbalanced, no doubt about it, but I found it to be fairly enjoyable (in small quantity). Of course, I totally understand why somebody would hate it. Original. Fun to try once and good luck drinking a full 750 ml of this alone.
