Pecan Wood Smoked Saison Crafted in the once commonplace, Old World tradition of bire 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 (1198) - Sydney, - 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.

mathieuc (3867) - Qubec, 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.

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 BrauArt / 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. Its 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.
