COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional German beer style that was all but extinct 30 years ago. An amazingly refreshing beer brewed with coriander and sea salt. The tart, dry finish combined with the hint of salt and citrus leaves your palate craving another sip.

Bottle share from Steve. True to the style, salt is featured prominently here, dries out your gums. Light bodied, bubbly. Would have been much better on a hot day.

ben4321 (4539) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2015
Location: Cask at Blind Tiger, 3/15/2015

Aroma: The nose is grapefruit rind and juice, other tropical notes, yeast, and a little salinity
Appearance:It pours a murky yellow color, sort of an off-white head, sticky lace
Flavor: Nice flavor, leans more toward the grapefruit/tropical side, good sourness, solid salinity
Palate:The body is medium, leaning light, with a pretty solid overall mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Interesting one. Grapefruit. Dry hopped with Galaxy. I thought the balance was there between the grapefruit sweetness, tartness, and the salinity.

Damico (2797) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2015
For breaky at the Skinny Pancake in Burlington. Pours beautifully white cloudy golden. Aroma and flavor are excellent for the style, nose is subtly sweet and tart with light lemon almost and not quite salty, just so smooth and refreshing in the nose. The flavor brings smooth lemon tart, crispy wheat, subtle sweetness, and the salt is balanced so well with those flavors the beer is delicious!

This poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was of grassy grain, cracked wheat, lemon juice. Flavor was lightly acidic, but not overly so, wheaty and mild salinity. Ok gose.
