COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, - MAY 30, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has savoury, meaty smoke notes set against a funky sour background, with some leathery notes coming through, as well as a touch of bittersweet apple. Peppery hops up front lead into a touch of oak and some savoury, meaty notes. The sourness shows in the mid-palate, bringing lemon and tart apple skin notes into play, creating an unusual but very pleasant blend with a drying smoky flavour. This blend continues through into the finish, with smoky Scotch whisky becoming more prominent. A lingering whisky sour aftertaste is left behind. This is an incredibly good beer. The blend between smoke, oak and sourness is done with a deft hand, creating a delicious and pretty unique ale.

Mesjasz (245) - 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.

kevinator (1379) - 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.
