500ml bottle. A pleasant suprise here, just enough "sea" character, super easy to drink, good summer ale.

bottle from that shop in The Source. I saw this bottle once, looked at the label quizzically and passed it up. Then the thought of how weird sea water beer probably is kept creeping in to my head. To settle my own curiosity, I went back and purchased this bottle. I am disappointed in the fact that this is not a weird beer at all. The pour is pretty cloudy, looks like they used a low-flocculating yeast. There isn’t much head retention either. The aroma is yeasty with hints at bananas and a touch of phenolic spice. I’m about finished with my glass and I get only the slightest salinity. It’s apparent more by the effect it has on the other flavors of the beer and finally becomes noticed as I lick my lips. It’s evident that these guys desalinated the water. The yeast choice is nice, it adds pleasant fruity esters throughout. The malt body is light and basic. This is not a bad beer at all, but I wish it were a little more interesting just because of the odd choice to use Mediterranean sea water. That being said, I do not understand the rating of 21 on this site. It’s not "bland" which people seem to gripe about a lot and there are no flaws or unpleasant qualities. The beer is certainly decent at least.

Teran (133) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 11, 2015
Cloudy grey orange colour. They announced this beer as the beer with sea water. But, I can not notice anything of that definition: salt, iodine, chloride, etc. Almost without nose, taste and aroma. Just another fraud. Butm it is witthout bad aftertaste, at least. it is a kind of the common politics of so called artisanal beers: let us make an interesting commercial, let us make a nice label on a nice bottle, and let us make the cheap beer without any taste. And earn some money out of that. Our world is full of that thinking. If they put just a half of all that energy to simply make A BIER, the result will be completely different.
