3.95/5 rDev +7%
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.

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.
