Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Bottle (2013)

Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!

Unfortunately, there wasn't much I could take away from this beer that was positive. Both the aroma and flavor had strange, and strong, flavors of smoke, sharp wood, and a meaty, almost pork-like, character. This was largely undrinkable, for me. Granted, I'm not the biggest fan of smoked beers, especially when not don well. I didn't think this one was done very well, either. There was some grass and a salinity to it as well, but the smoke was too dominant for me, personally. If this sounds interesting, I'd still recommend trying it, as other people I respect have enjoyed this one. Perhaps it just wasn't for me.
