3.9/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high w
S: Light aromas of sour funk and salt are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors resembling a wild ale and has a light amount of brett flavors and sourness. Hints of pickled, salty prunes are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very unique as you really get saltiness in the finish, but this is imparted by the umi boshi and not by simply dumping salt into the brew kettle.

Thanks tommyguz for the share. 750ml bottle pours a clear golden with white head composed of large bubbles. Decent retention.

It smells fruity almost like coriander and orange/lemon/grapefruit zest. A soft yeastiness underneath along with brine.

The taste is savory and salty with a touch of fruity yeast component almost like apple/pear skins instead of the zesty and juicy fruitiness the nose eluded to.

This is medium to light bodied with light carbonation. Overall this just seems like an interesting twist on a gose. However, instead of a neutral yeast, it had a light belgian feel to it. Stylistically categorizing this as a wild ale is very misleading.

3.75/5  rDev -1.3%

A: Light copper with a thin bubbly head that dissipates fast.

S: Slightly funky, wheat, cereal, salt, healthy dose of spices, subdued citrus, and floral/herbal qualities. There is a noticeable sea salt aroma to this that is nice and refreshing, almost mineral-like.

T: Salt, light funk, grains, light citrus, cloves, yeast, and a tad sour. This has a certain bite in the finish while still remaining crisp and clean. Happy that this isn’t excessively salty – there is enough salt to appreciate but the funk is enough to provide balance.

M: Med-light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean.

D: This is very good – well crafted and refreshing – a suitable hot weather option without question. Would drink this over gatorade.

3.8/5  rDev 0%

Very light orange, a bit hazy, small white head quick to some light lace.
Smell of candi sugar, apricot, salty grain, prune, apple peel, pear, quince, seaweed, gooseberry, flower petals, , faint cherries, hay, faint mold.
Starts lemony sour, pulp and peel, crisp, with the faintest of sweetness from the candi sugar and ume plums, but quite a bit of vinegar notes. A light "soapy" herbal note, right before some horseblanket and mold, green hay, grass, dill, but not that strong, just a mild Brett influence. Grass and grapefruit in the finish, dry, a bit more than mildly bitter.
Light bodied, light to medium fizzed. Easy to drink, a bit watery.
A light sour beer, expected a huge wackiness, but it ended up being pretty simple. Brett, some pickle juice, a touch of candi sugar, not that impressing.
