Big ass 2" head on this one, yellow liquid, not much for clarity, lots of haze like its a pledge at a frat. Aroma had mild lemon like citrus notes, couldn't grasp the salinity.

Salinity, tartness, very low. Like the opposite of de garde gose's that are more like wild ales, this one owed just as much to pale wheat bland beers. No off flavors, but it just doesn't do much other than be one of the first commercial examples in the revival these days.

Saving my last one for when its 100+ degrees this summer.

From notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over and then leaving it in my fridge for a few weeks. No seriously, that was great.

The beer pours a faded golden straw color, mostly transparent with a little bit of haze. A white cap froths up with the initial pour before slowly fading.

Salt of the Earth definitely has a strange nose. There is a light dry malt character that reminds me of a saison, a strong burst of lemon zest, some saltiness, and some vegetal and skunky notes that are not that pleasant.

The flavor starts with a light, dry, crackery malt with a little bit of pepper. A strong lemon tartness is full and strong without being piercing. Some other light fruits are noticeable as well. Toward the end of the sip it definitely turns salty. The salt proves to dry the mouth out further and leave my mouth with milder version of what dying of thirst must be like. There is a mushroom and vegetal flavor that covers the entire sip. The carbonation is slightly crisp, and the beer has a smooth, light body. It is very dry, a sensation that is only accentuated by the saltiness.

Overall this was rough enough that I did not want to finish my glass.
