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: 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.
