Interesting beer. The smoked part is fine--there’s an aroma of light smoke, sausage, and bandages/Band-Aids. The flavor gives you something rather different than a typical smoked beer, with some lemon citrus and sour acidity. Light color with some particles floating. I thought it was good, but except for my wine-geek brother-in-law, my family (not beer geeks) were repulsed by the smell.... C’est la vie. Bottle #64/250.
