Pours slightly cloudy dark gold with a 1-finger head if poured correctly. Definitely a note of citrus here. The mineral quality comes through with the very slight salt taste, and a more almost earthy taste. The coriander is there, but none of this is overpowering, good balance. Very refreshing, good for a warm weather session. Glad it finally hit shelves and I was able to track it down so quick!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Lots of earthy yeast aromas, with hints of cooked vegetables.
Appearance: Cloudy dark gold with a thin white head.
Taste: Immediate medium sourness which is quickly balanced by a light sweetness and finishes with a hint of saltiness.
Palate: Light-medium body, thin milky texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: I am very intrigued and caught off guard by this beer. There is a great complexity in the flavor that really works well, and no one taste is too overpowering.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Batch #1. Pours a clear dark orange/amber with almost no head. Aroma of coriander, orange citrus and bready malt. Taste is light sour and light salty. Lemon citrus and salt, just as described. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. I’ve never had this style, and probably never will again. Very interesting and another home run from Boston Beer Company.

Wow. Coriander comes thru the dryness. Dry feel but still sweet. Citrusy. Right at the last second you get a saltiness. Like this beer.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Batch 1. 22oz bottle. Yellow label, owl pic. Dark orange color. Thick, eggshell colored head of creamy. Aroma of fruit punch and simple fermented malts. Flavors include pale malts, nice coriander, subtle fruitiness from the coriander seed, and very distant salt taste. Its a heavy bodied session. The body of this beer couldn’t be more perfect. Low ABV, heavy bodied?? Perhaps the salt addition added a complexity that acts like a hearty mineral content to harden the beer. Finishes like an English Pale with a bit of funk, and with salt. So far, my favorite of these Batch 1 brews. I love the uniqueness!

Pretty interesting brew here. Pours like a witbier, hazy amber. Smells of wheat and coriander. The salt character comes out when the beer very first hits your tongue and then is gone making you want to take another sip to see if that is what you really thought you tasted. Wheat character and orange peel with some coriander. Finishes crisp and refreshing. Tasty.

Pours hazy orange with a large sizzling off-white head. Smells of caramel and a touch of spice. Taste is sweet with a bit of pepper notes and a slight mineral taste. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Verloren finishes with a bit of bitterness and mineral kick.

Tap at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear dark gold, with a funny aroma that’s hard to explain. Fresh nose of wildflowers, wheat, honey, pear, coriander...neat and different. Pleasant taste with a peppery fruitiness and some light saltiness (in a good way), light pear and honey flavors as well

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium collapsing off-white head. Aroma is of coriander, wet river rock. Taste is sweet, lightly tart and salty, lemony, crisp and refreshing. Highly carbonated with a medium body. A simple, yet really tasty brew. I love that salt...very different.

Bottle from Amity, New Haven. Pours a clear dark amber color with a large white head. Good head retention. Aroma of candied lemons, spice and mild salt. The taste is pure lemons balanced by mild brininess and significant bliss. Medium bodied and quite a pleasant surpise.
