Americans seem confused. They seem to think that the traditional salt beer of northern Germany are sour, as brewers attach themselves to full-blown berlinerweiss instead. But with is soft tangy acidity and saline fullness, they should sit back and let Dollnitzer brewers show them how it's done.

Its cloudy translucence and canary hues layer into the glass with both a bready and champagne-like layering. As a cottony-white head constructs, the nose is greeted with bread, cookie dough and candied lemon drop. With its playful tartness and sprite acidity looming, the initial taste is creamy, fully wheated and medium-sweet.

Upon the middle, the bready texture and candied sweetness pull apart, paving the way for the tartness of green apple, under-ripened berry, white grape, lemon and lime to tether through the quickly dissolving malt character. The fullness that only salt can provide follow closely behind and offer its delicate brine with no residually mineral character to interfere.

Piquant acidity wisps away quickly while ensuring a high rate of refreshment and drinkability while its soft saltiness lingers to highlight echoes of bread dough in aftertaste. Otherwise a light bodied ale, the taste of brine that clings on tightly to the mouth gives the ale an impression of fullness that has a bit more staying power on the palate than expected.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

.5 L bottle poured into a craft tumbler

A- Hazy. Brownish-yellow. Some yeast suspends in the body. White head fizzles out pretty quickly.

S- Bready malt. Some citrus. Lacto tang.

T- Malt is bready again. The citrus is lemon, and that nice extra lacto zip. I like the malt forwardness to this. Not too tangy.

M- The tartness is still the big player in this. Finish is wet and smooth though. Just that nice little lip pucker.

O- I really love the malt-to-tang ratio in this one. Tang is still on top, but the bready malt character mellows and balances it out.
