Comment: Unusual style of beer originally from N. Germany. UXO (1896) - CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy bright straw yellow with one finger of dense white head, excellent retention and light to moderate lacing. Nose is citrus, salt, with faint wheat and coriander. Taste is is similar, leading with salty citrus and finishing slightly sour. Medium to light body, with moderate sustained carbonation.
Dunno if this is all that representative of the style, since the brewers seem to have worked from theory instead of direct experience. Mind you, since the style actually went extinct, that’s kind of true across the board. What causes me more concern is the "Enjoy by 09/01/2013", making me wonder if it’s a little less tart than it should be. That being said, it’s not bad - the tartness makes it fairly refreshing, but I’m not sure the saltiness actually adds anything. Travlr (25188) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow color, white head. Aroma of earthy lemon. Taste is sweaty earthy lemon and salt. drsordr (2732) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
From notes for RBWG. Bottle pour light hazy gold. Nose tart, almost tomato, some sweetness. Taste, salt hits the palate first. Then some sour and tomato based citric acid. Just not one of my favorite styles.

[Bottle (650ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a pale yellow-gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Nice aroma, fruity and salty along with herbs and some wheat. Citrusy and herbal flavour along with a good amount of salt, wheat and more fruit. Average bodied. Surprisingly good and refreshing. jercraigs (10556) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
2014-05-02. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is quite pleasant, it has a sort of salty quality to it and pleasantly fruity, gooseberry like character throughout, grassy wheaty touches. 7+ Flavour is similar whisper of salt around the edges, fruit, lightly sour and tart throughout in a way that is pretty refreshing. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Lovely stuff, very quaffable. Bottled dated Enjoy by 09/01/2013, via trade with Ferris jonno (2790) - JAPAN - APR 24, 2014
Nice balance here. The salt is well integrated, bit of a soapy finish, but otherwise excellent. Quite a it spicy too. Sledutah (7722) - Utah, USA - FEB 17, 2014
