At first I took a sip directly from the can. (don't do this - It tasted like vomit)

I was about to throw it away but I decided to do it right and pour it in a glass.

Nice smell. Nice head(at first - didn't last)

The taste was acceptable. (For some reason drinking it from a glass and letting it breath a little took the taste of vomit away)

Who knows maybe I got a bad batch. If anyone else has the same experience please let me know.

I poured this into my pilsner glass, although a tulip would have worked as well.

This pours a pale golden with crisp foam that quickly fizzes away.

The aroma has a hint of tartness and funk, followed by a light sour mash scent which comes across on the palate. It's crisp and tangy, with just a touch of sour tartness and a drying salty brininess on the finish.

Very interesting. Pours decent head which goes away quite promptly. The small is a little weird but when u taste, it is quite a surprise. It is a tangy beer with flavors of pepper, citrus and an obvious taste of salt(I guess sea salt). I was a little scared to try, but WOW, all of the flavors come together and make a great sparkling, citrusy, refreshing beer that would be enjoyable anytime, especiall drank cold on a warm summer day. Not like any other, but well worth a try !!!
