I thought it had more than enough bacon flavor. All the flavors are well represented. Smoked malt, applewood bacon and maple are the primary flavors.

I liked it after the first three sips in a novelty sort of way and by the end of the bottle I thought it was gross. I think it might taste better with less bacon. Some people don't taste the bacon at all. Not sure how that is possible. Maybe they eat a slab of bacon every day. The bacon lingered on the back of my tongue long after the bottle was gone.

I'm drinking the Lost Abbey / New Belgium "Brett Beer".

Lost Abbey is one of my favorite brewers. New Belgium is very hit and miss for me, mostly miss. This beer is a let down, so I will blame it on the clowns at New Belgium.

They must have used brett C or brett anomalous. This creates a rotten pineapple smell that I find to be very unappealing, but I'll drink it anyway. They probably also used some brett B because there is a leathery / funky aroma and flavor too. It's a light drinking beer that is slightly tart and not sour. It's a little lemony from the Sorachi hops. The aftertaste is leathery and mildly bitter in a non-hoppy way.

I can't find too many redeeming qualities in this beer. I like a lot of beers with brett, but this isn't one of them. Will not buy again.

First beer of the evening, Sierra Nevada Summer Blonde. Easy drinker, and goes down quickly.

Sierra Nevada's Hoptimum

Advertised as a whole cone imperial ipa. Its got 100 ibus and 10% alcohol. Quite good. The best reaction was my wife when she tried it. Let's just say it wasn't her favorite.
