Bottle at Camping Kost-Ar-Moor. Slightly hazy golden with brittle white head. Sweet malts, dried apple, unripe green apple, weird booziness (at abv of 4?!). Light sweet, slightly overpowered by sour notes. Medium body, low carbonation. Terrible.

In short: cider tasting beer.
Pours hazy dark gold with little white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Baked apples nose, sugary, spicy. Medium body, average carabontion, crispy texture. Taste is towards the cider side, with some weird flavours also. Peculiar and forgetable.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks DSG. Hazy gold and headless. Funky and stinky aroma of apple and a little salt. Salty, apple and a little funk. Light body, soft fizz, salty finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Uncommon beer from Birttany: mixing apples and sea water! Pours cloudy amber with thin white head. Nose is cleary sea water. Aromas are sour apples, yeast... weirdly balanced between sweetness, saltyness and sourness. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Not a great beer experience!

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Eric for this bottle! Murky yellow. Aroma of apples, some sea salt, a spicy note and a farty note. Slightly sweetish flavor, slightly salty, slightly tart, with apples. Rather light-bodied. Weird but passable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle conditionned. Original beer realised with sea water. The flavor of sea water mixed with apple and the salty taste are strangely Ok. Not impressive but different. I may try it again. Y

[330ml bottle, courtesy of MrB] Cloudy amber pour with a thin white head – nothing unusual there. Until you take a sniff – what a great aroma. It really does smell of the sea, a musty, briney ozone aroma, with some stewed apples in there. Like nothing I’ve ever had before – it tastes like traditional cider diluted with seawater. It’s a bit like a condiment flavour – you could certainly cook with this. On the one hand I like it, but on the other it’s really not nice – very strange. Apple flavours come out more once the initial salty tang fades. Fascinating
