Beer added by: ThirdEyePA on 03-04-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Thanks to XicanoBeerRun for this. I love smoked beers! And this is my new crush.

This pours a light straw-golden color with hazy foam. There’s a wonderfully smokey aroma, with what I can only describe as bright, clean, crisp—it’s not an ashtray full of soot clouding the olfactory system—with just a hint of a muted lingering sour mash tartness as a grace note. Fantastic aroma.

The flavor is equally bright. The smoked character dominates, as it tends to do, but underneath it there’s an interestingly tart character, with a very mild bitterness (this is not a hoppy beer) and a somewhat sweet finish. A wonderfully vibrant effervescence keeps this beer light and, dare I say it, eminently quaffable. (I’d love to see this on cask. Seriously.) Another amazing Jester King beer. (792 characters)

Pale golden color with lots of carbonation and a steady, consistent head. Smell is a mix of smoke, grain, and a weird funkiness. Not sure if it's a good or wrong funk, but it's interesting. Taste is tart, refreshing, funky, sour, smoky, dry. This is a mix of all the flavors I love most about beer. I only knock the taste because, although I LOVE smoked beer, I think this would be even better without the smoke. It's just a well-made funky farmhouse beer a lá Jolly Pumpkin. Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. It compliments the flavors perfectly. This beer is excellent. I'm glad I bought 2! I used to not be a big fan of Jester King back when they were having some quality control issues, but with El Cedro and Salt Lick, they are turning me into a huge fan. I'm proud to have this brewery in my state. (808 characters)

a gusher of a bottle, poured into a jester king glass. clear golden yellow pour with lots of fluffy bright white head. smells of smoked wood, chipotle peppers, band aids, funky brett scent. my god this is an excellent tasting beer. as a huge fan of sours and rauchbiers, this is right up my alley. lots of smoked flavor, wood, with a nice bretty funkyness, and also a slight acidity to it making it a very light sourness. this is simply perfection for a summer night. lighter/medium body with high carbonation, this is a very delicious and refreshing beer.

an amazing offer from jester king. their beers just keep getting better and better. if you like sours and if you like smoked malt beers - do not think twice. (715 characters)

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)

This is a Pecan wood smoked saison from Jester King in collaboration with Salt Lick BBQ.

A - It pours a beautiful sunshine orange with a golden glow. Minimal head, with a thin ring of bubbles tightly hugging the sides of the glass.

S - On the nose I get big notes of smoke, some fruity undertones, and a very subtle funk.

T - The smoke is very forward, but it's not overpowering. The Pecan wood is a unique touch on the smoke as it's adds a richness to the flavor. There is a bit of oak in here too I believe, and it almost has a smoked brisket touch to it. Very interesting. The smoke gives way to some nice fruity flavors. Lemon zest, pear, and some tartness on the back end that finishes very refreshing and clean.

M - Medium to high carbonation, appropriate mouthfeel. Drinkable and goes down very easy.

O - Overall this is a very unique beer. I craved brisket as soon as had gotten a couple of drinks into it. I really enjoyed this, and could see it going down very easily with a plate of Salt Lick BBQ. Another job well done Jester King. (1,059 characters)

Got in a trade with Cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass; Batch 1, bottled in January 2013. Slow gusher upon opening. Pours extremely hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart lemon, green apple, pear, clove, pepper, wheat, smoke, wood, hay, grass, funk, light vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes, with prominent smoked wood presence; and good strength. Taste of tart lemon, green apple, pear, clove, pepper, hay, grass, wheat, wood, smoke, funk, light vinegar, leather, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of tart earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart fruit, clove, pepper, wheat, wood, smoke, hay, grass, funk, light vinegar, leather, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a fair amount of smoke presence and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a light creamy and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent smoked wild saison style. All around great balance and complexity of malt, smoke, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. I thought the wood smoke note complimented the spicy yeast nicely. A very enjoyable offering. (1,580 characters)

On tap at Salt Licks, poured into a clear plastic cup.

A - Pours a medium neutral golden color with an overall orangey tint to it. A finger of loose white foam sits on top.

S - Definitely picking up the smokiness on the nose mixed in with some grainy malt, some tartness and some ctirusy oranges and lemons.

T - Hmm...interesting in a good way. Rather tart overall with noticeable smokiness that manages to stay a bit in the background of the flavor profile...not quite what I would call subtle, but well integrated. Plenty of saison character with lots of fruity citrus especially lemons and oranges as in the aroma. Grainy base, little bit of sweet malt.

M - A bit thin in body. Carbonation is a bit on the lighter side but still had plenty of life to it. Rather refreshing on a warm spring day.

O - Had never heard of this so figured I'd give it a try and ended up having several. Worked really nice sitting at the picnic tables outside Salt Licks during our 2hr wait to get seated for dinner. Quite flavorful with the smoke enhancing the beer. Smoke was done well with enough presence but without overpowering the other subtleties in the beer. Would definitely have again. (1,181 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a straw/hay in color with a two finger eggshell head.

S - The smell first off is like opening a bbq pit smoker. The smoke is cut with a light sweetness that brings it all together. Behind that is a lemony tartness with some funk.

T - Lemon sour on the front, some funk/wheat/hay and the sweet smoke from the pecan wood comes in midway through. Ends a little salty with may'be some white pepper.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. Finishes dry.

O - Really an interesting combo here. I can see this as a love it or hate it beer. But, to me it's really great and refreshing. (591 characters)

On tap at the Common Table

Hazy golden body with a quickly dissipating white head that leaves some lacing.

Predominant smoke aroma over the grassy and lemony saison characteristics.

The smoke is there but blended nicely with the grassy funk and lemon. There is a slight tartness.

Light bodied, crisp, prickly carbonation, and dry.

Super enjoyable. Not as smoky as the Gotland which I enjoyed. (397 characters)

750ml, Batch 1, Jan. 2013
Jester King tulip glass

A: Cloudy bright yellow straw color. Two fingers fluffy white head. Good carbonation. Lacing sheets start immediately.

S: Nose reminds me of the Gotlandrika from JK. Also the smoking Fantome Saison (weird batch) that I had this past fall. It's not an overpowering bacon smoke, but more subtle than that. More peppery notes and spice. Good barnyard dryness, and as others have mentioned Band Aid smells. Maybe some light lemon mixed in there too.

T: Tip of the tongue you get prickly carbonation. Hints of that sweet smoke from the pecan wood. Nice pepper notes as well. That lemon comes through a little bit. Maybe some touches of faint tartness/sour. Dry finish. Very clean.

M: Light to medium bodied. High carbonation. (774 characters)

Hazy golden orange pour with a thick white head that settles down to a cap. Soapy lacing.

Strong smoky aroma with some lemon yogurt way in the background.

Taste is tart lemon and citrus upfront with lactic acid and smoke following up. Smoke is much more subtle in the taste than in the aroma.

Drying on the palate.

Really enjoyable. (339 characters)

I received this beer in a trade a while ago. Batch #1 from January 2013. A pecan-wood-smoked saison, where a portion of the malt was smoked at The Salt Lick BBQ joint a few miles south of the brewery. The original label for Salt Lick was rejected by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, since Salt Lick is named after The Salt Lick BBQ and Texas law doesn't allow for that direct relation to a retailer on a beer label. And so "Censored" has become it's new name.

Stored in refrigeration for a few weeks, there was no extreme "gushing" upon opening this beer, though after a few seconds the beer started to foam in the bottle and began slowly creeping out of the neck. Immediately poured this into a teku glass. The body is a dull and cloudy yellow-orange color. The head is a crisp white foam that pops away quickly, leaving not very much behind.

The aroma is quite similar to what you would find in a traditional farmhouse ale, with notes of tart apples, lemon rind, sweet wheat malt, and light brine, but with an additional influence from the barrel and smoked malt, lending it's woody, earthy, ashy smell. What was impressive is the well-balanced nature of the aroma, and the strong intensity of it all.

Up front on the palate is the bright, lemon-lime citrus flavor, with a serious tartness that pops about mid-palate. It's tannic and vinous up front as well, and that falls into a lingering salty and dry quality in the finish. Persistent throughout the entire experience is a strong, ashy, tobacco-like smoke, which contrasts it's earthy quality against the bright tartness of the base beer. The body is very well carbonated, and the mouthfeel is soft, with an expansive feeling when held on the tongue.

Fans of smokey red wines or oaked dry whites would probably really enjoy this beer. The smoke quality is excellent, and certainly unique. The saison characteristics are not overwhelmed and the beer is very unique. I don't know if it is something I would want to drink all the time, but I certainly enjoyed the experience. (2,041 characters)

Pours a pale yellow colour, very hazy, white head, nice lace. The aroma was undoubtedly smoked pecan wood. That's a very strong smoked wood. I've had some beef jerky that was pecan wood smoked and it was the most intensely smoky thing I've ever had. Lucky, the Salt Lick is pronounced, but not a one pump chump. There's some subtle tart and Brett notes, oak and yeasty esters. Taste of rich smoky pecan wood, mild tartness, Brett funk, yeast, bread, oak tannins, soured bread. Carbonation was lively, but not overly done. Body on the lighter side, slight crisp and refreshing quality.

It's a unique smoked beer, but the oaky sour smokiness is strangely tasty... (663 characters)

Thanks to angrybabboon for sharing the bottle.

Appearance: Highly carbonated hazy straw goldfish yellow. Bubbly bright-white head leaves some small notches of lacing. Solid retention leaves a small bubbly cap.

Smell: Smoked in nice measure. Slightly sweet pecan wood layered over typical Jester King funk. Damp and musty with some hints of lacto and a solid bretty punch. A touch of lemon juice and lemon zest. Slightly herbal and earthy as well. Damp earth and then a soft spicy sweetness from the smoked wood. A bit of powdery bready elements with some pale crackery malts as well. Pale malt sweetness rounds it out.

Taste: Smoked peachy lemon bread. A nice pale malt sweetness rounds out the back. Some biscuit and crackery malt base. Smoke is slightly sweet with a touch of char and a mild spiciness. Damp musty funk as well. Wet earth. Some lemon zest and a touch of lacto. Brett adds some mild funk. More tart than smoky as it warms. Green wood.

Mouthfeel: Light body with a moderate to high carbonation. Clean and slightly crisp on the finish with a slightly slick sip upfront.

Overall: Why so secret.

It's odd, but I like it. Smoky and tart. Just unique. (1,174 characters)

Had this at the brewery back in... April or so, bought the bottle a few months back, can't really recall when but I'd guess early June. Finally got around to cracking it.

Chilled 25.4 oz Euro-style bomber into a JK 33 cl tulip. Bottle reads Batch #1 January 2013.

Look- Well, to start off, this one was a major gusher. It's been in the fridge for the better part of six months, didn't really expect a mini-volcano. Beer itself is a hazed straw color, pours with two fingers of loose foam that settles quick. Nice lacing.

Smell- Lightly sour, reminds me of a dry cider. Predominantly woody, some straw, light smoke. Not much else comes through, but it's nice.

Taste- Mellow, grainy, woody, light smoke and lots of pecan. Surprising amount of pecan actually, very distinctive but not overbearing. Sharper as it warms, dry but not bone dry, has some body and a light sweetness. Ginger, lemongrass, white tea, orange pith. More citrus comes out as it sits for a while, blends with the sour and smooths out. Finishes mellow, more wood and light dry toast. Quite good, but subtle.

Mouthfeel- Full for the style, moderate carbonation. Smooth, almost creamy. Moderate acidity comes out midway through. Dry-ish, ciderlike, but heftier, jucier than typical. Unusual for the style, but I find myself preferring it.

Overall- Not something I'd pick up everday, or every year. but above-average drinkability and different enough to stand out. Absolutely worth trying, and based on my experience it's worth holding onto for a bit. (1,522 characters)

A - Looks very saison-y: opaque golden hay in color with a white, fluffy head.

S - BBQ pit smoke-bomb... I was a bit afraid I was not going to like this one after my initial smell. Smells extreme for a beer; reminded me of some smoked German beers I have tried and did not care for.

T - Barnyard and hay...Salty And smoky. Very different than anything else I've ever had before. The sourness reminds me of apple cider vinegar. There's a slight bit of spice in the back of my mouth in the finish, maybe some lemon and black pepper. ***I'd love to see a 100% barrel-aged version of this with some ancho chiles.

M - really nice... Not heavy at all; it's perfect for summer. I can hold a sip in my mouth and feel like there's nothing there... I really like the level of carbonation.

O - I wish I would have had some Feast BBQ tofu to go with this brew; that is a match made in southern-flavored heaven. JK has become one of my most sought after brewery, and this is just another example of why that is. (1,004 characters)

750ml into a snifter.

A. Glowing orange-gold with a large white head. Pretty beer.

S. Earthy wood smoke, light citrusy acidity, a bit of pale malt.

T. More woody, meaty smoke, a bit of dry mild sourness, orange rind, oak, coriander.

M. Light-bodied with active carbonation.

O. This is pretty interesting. The smokiness is strong but not off-putting. I just wish the blend had included a little more of the sour beer. (421 characters)

definitely one of the strangest beers ive had in a while. smoked over pecan wood, the malt profile of this beer is sweeter than an oak smoke, lighter than the peated smoked beers, and overall just very unique. it pours a sort of drab ugly brown tinted wheat beer color, hazy and pale with an inch or so of white head. the nose is way out there. some in our group thought it smelled and tasted like bandaids, but I did not agree. I smelled a really earthy sweet smoke, almost like a fruit wood, from the pecan, and still quite a bit of sour yeast from the blend. wheat malt, bittering hops, and a complexity that is unrivaled. the beer is quite light and easy to drink, although it is not for the traditional lager drinker, or even the traditional saison drinker, this is entirely unlike anything else around. the funk is intense, the smoke is different, and the hops do their best to bring the thing together, but its an oddity for sure. fantastic carbonation, lighter body, and a lot of attitude. I would expect nothing less from jester king, who is doing some very clever stuff right now. not sure I will seek this out again, but a huge thanks to drlovemd87 for sharing this with us. a beer for the adventurous palate. (1,220 characters)

Jester King Brewery - Salt Lick (Censored), poured into a Craftgeer snifter.

Look - Pours a deep mimosa with a small foamy head that dissipates quickly but leaves considerable lacing.

Smell - Tart citrus, sour, oaky, and funky as hell. Take all that and throw it in a smoker because that's what it is.

Taste - Undoubtedly lemon sour in the front that gives way to woody smokiness and a bit of salt.

Mouthfeel - Light body, sits smoky but not bad. Heavily carbonated, dry, and fades quickly. Not overly boozy and actually quite drinkable.

Overall - This is without a doubt one of the most unique brews I have ever had (something Jester King seems to make me say often). Glad I tried but I would not get this one again, it is definitely not for everyone and along those lines it's not for me, but I judged it on it's merits and it was pretty good at doing what it advertised. (878 characters)

Consumed 6/13/14

Split with Goblinmunkey7

Appearance: Hazy, light tangerine with some nice gold and orange tones - pours with a ton of carbonation (yup, the bottle was a gusher) - fades to a large, foamy white cap, leaves some blobs and streaks of lacing

Smell: A lot of funky, sour, woody, smoky weirdness - some sour notes, with what smells like Brett - wet and musty funk - some yeasty saison notes - wood - earthy, dirty, and floral notes - big smoked malt component - smoky, sour, musty, and interesting

Taste: Funky and smoky, what is this, a recent Fantôme beer? - light sourness, with some lactic and Brett flavors - decidedly wet and musty with some big earthy flavors, hints of something salt-like, and lemony tartness - yeasty with some light fruits and more funk - smoke is definitely prominent, with some smoky, damp smoked malts - damp wood as well - can't say I detect any pecan, but it's still very interesting overall

Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth, some lingering funk and smoke

Overall: Some beers are beyond weird... I'm running low on adjectives

This is an interesting mix of sour, funky, smoky, and yeasty flavors. The concept of blending a sour with a saison kind of makes sense, but I'm not sure if the smoke was necessary. Regardless, it mostly works, and this is worth a try. (1,309 characters)

Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a huge off-white foamy head (bit of gusher) with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of smoked malt is pretty dominant with light cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is a mostly dominated by smoked malt with some funky barnyard notes and a tart finish being also noticeable. Body is light with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not an everyday kind of beer with the amount of smoke that can be found here and not really a saison anymore but nonetheless I still enjoyed this beer. (541 characters)

T - Slightly sour and heavily salted, all smokey tobacco at the finish. Vinegary sours aftertaste. A bit too smokey imo

"Censored" version from the bottle.

Hazy golden orange in color with two-fingers of gently settling off-white head. Aroma is enjoyable, albeit subdued, with lemon, melon, yeast, herbs and a faint smokiness. Yeasty up front on the tongue with a nice interplay of melon rind and lemon juice followed by a palpable woodiness, salt, and a soft sour aftertaste. Medium bodied. Has a bit of grittiness that gets in the way.

Have liked what this brewery has been doing for a while, and even though this one isn't as robust as some of the others of theirs I've tried, it is another winner that sports that unique JK touch. (617 characters)

Bottle is labeled from January 2013.

Look : Hazy sunny, deep yellow. Pours with good head. (Bottle left out on counter, uncapped, for about fifteen minutes, very slow foamy head developed out of bottle.

Smell : Light smoky nose, slight sour at end.
Taste : Starts light carbonation at front, transitions to a malty, wild yeast middle, then progresses to a smokey, sweet finish.
Feel : Light carbonation up front, medium body.
Finish: A little slow to roll off tongue: light pecan smoke finish .

Overall: Generally do not like saisons or extremely smokey beers; however, light pecan sweet smoke paired semi-sour beer paired pretty well. Definitely an unusual beer to try! (677 characters)

Pours a hazed golden yellow hue with a two finger head and clingy lacing everywhere,the smell is strong smoked pecan wood,funk and citrus quite an enticing smell,the mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated maybe too much and has tastes of smoked pecan wood them the saison takes over with hints of lemons,limes,oranges,only the slightest touch of funk which is highly dissapointing for me and the finish is a mix of herbal earthy bitter hops and sweet smoked pecan and overall when reading the label I was thinking this is going to be one hell of a unique beer but unfortunately it's just a nice smoked pecan saison and probably my first jester king that I would not revisit cheers. (689 characters)
