3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle, 267/350 sampled 7/25/15.
Bright copper-amber beer shows moderately high clarity and is topped by a small white head.
Lemon, salt and a surprising but enjoyable fruitiness coming from who knows where. Kind of like cherry pie with a touch of tartness. Malt is....caramel-like, yet not really overly sweet. Some grassiness and vanilla mix on the finish, with more salt and tartness.
Lemon, oily tea leaves, vanilla-infused salt and dry taffee stickiness. Medium to low carbonation yet, like Fantasia, what’s there is natural and tight. Very funky, with some odd petrol-ish compounds noted, but yet again, I can’t say it was unenjoyable. I really like beers like this. Who knows if the brewer even intended for it to be this wacky and surprising, but regardless, it turned out well. Could dial back the salt and focus a little more on the citrus. Glad I got to try it.

golden slightly hazy pour. 1 finger head that fades fast. The aroma is very salty with lime. berry, tasty with oak and sour vinegar. but it’s very nice. Incredible salt presence. delicious but almost too intense

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle, 267/ 350 Amber gold, no head. Aroma is indeed saline solution, yeast, weak spice, herbs??
The flavor shows a good amount of salt. Is there salt in this brew? Lemons, coriander, pretty acidic notes in the finish. Mild sourness in the wheat body. Pretty decent

This is a cloudy orange brew w/ a small, tight-bubbled head. It has a mild floral nose and is slightly salty w/ a medium strong tartness. It has just a touch of sweetness to balance the acidity and the salt, sour, sweet combo lingers on the tongue in such a way as to beg for another sip.
