Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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.
