Appearance: Dispenses a scantily hazed, pale yellow-hued body. No head formation.

Smell: Just as the name implies, it smells of liberally salted lemons with some backing of wheat.

Taste: Sweetish, salty as well as wheaty and winy, though has an odd vegetal, slightly corn chip backing to it. Not overly sour. Sourish, maybe souresque.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slightly creamy on the tongue.

Overall: Fell short for me.

Bottle from Kelly and Paul, thanks!
Pours a hazy golden color with a decent but short lived bubbly white head. Yup salty and lemony right out of the gate or bottle if you will. Light earthy fink rounds it out nicely. Hints of light citrus, lots of lemony tart and the salt balances nicely. Pretty damn tasty salty sour beer

500mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 12.99. 2016 release. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours a hazy, pale gold with a finger and a half cap of white froth. The head dies down gradually, leaving a full crown but no lacing.

Aroma is almost as expected. Earthy lemons, sweet bread, salty sea water, wine and some funky grains. Quite interesting and different.

Tastes of earthy lemon, softly soured grain, wet oaken funk, white wine, mild earth, a little cakey bread and just a slight tinge of salt on the finish. Not quite as sour as expected from a wild ale brewed with lemon but tasty nonetheless.

Dry, medium body with fairly subdued carbonation. Aftertaste of unsweetened lemon cookies and old, wine soaked oak.

Salty Lemons is the second brew I've tried from Paradox and I'm once again impressed. It doesn't quite deliver the sour punch I was expecting but there is still plenty going on to enjoy.

I wasn't quite sure how this was going to taste but, I really enjoyed it. It poured thick, like a syrup but, didn't feel that way when I drank it. The lemon taste is just enough, not to heavy. I didn't notice any saltiness. Great beer in my book!
