Very nice and very special summer beer. More sour than salty, actually, but not too much. Aroma: gentle, reminds of lilac flowers, green apple, pineapple and honey. Taste: sour, a bit salty, green apple in the aftertaste. Works well with salads.

Bottle... Pours cloudy and amber with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The restrained nose is grainy and a touch herbal. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is tart and quite salty accompanied by a slightly bready sweetness. Tangy, salty finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Cloudy yellow colour, decent head. This is a sour beer with lots of citrus and herbs, something like a sour Belgian witbier. There is also some salt in it. The taste is not quite like any other beer. Very good if you are thirsty, except it might make you even more thirsty. Nice to have this style alive and available even outside Leipzig.

Flavor: Hay up front with a touch of salt, followed by a growing tart lemon presence; the finish is semi-dry. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Liked this pretty well; seems fairly legit in terms of faithfulness to the style.
