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.

"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.
