4.34/5 rDev +0.7%
Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City snifter.
A: Light yellow to straw-colored, and hazy. Forms just over a finger's worth of white head that fades fairly quickly, and has a fair amount of visible carbonation.
S: Light citrus, tart, wheat with some husk, and a bit of sour and funk.
T: Wheat malt, lactic tartness, lemon-lime citrus. A moderate amount of salinity for style, and some sour with just a touch of funk on the back end. Tart citric lemon-lime flavor in the hang with some savory salty flavor as well. It tastes less grainy than the smell suggested.
M: Light body, medium carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.
O: This was really good. In my opinion, hands down the best of the 5 Beers release from Cigar City. A good execution of a refreshing style.

4.28/5 rDev -0.7%
650ml bottle, dated 2/7/2014. Poured into a blue font CCB snifter 7/6/2014.
A- Hazy, cloudy straw yellow body that pours with a initially fizzy half finger white head with a very short retention time. No lacing, looks quite placid.
S- Lemon, papaya, a touch of salt, a decent bit of lactic acid and light funk. Smells juicy yet balanced out by the salt. Nicely tart, I could smell this all day.
F- Lemon, tart lacto, wheat, spices, slight leather, a bit of sea salt but certainly not ocean water-level sea salt, some orange peel. Very complex but at the end of the day, I love it because it is simply refreshing.
M- Medium in body, slightly undercarbonated compared to others of the style. Very drinkable, refreshing on a warm summer night. Finish is wheaty sea salt with some tartness.
O- The sea salt is a bit restrained and the fruit-like flavours are predominant here, accompanied by just the right amount of lactic acidity. I might actually prefer this one to Westbrook's take because the salt takes a backseat to the juiciness and tart lacto.
