Very cloudy, yeasty golden with a hint of a white head.

Smells of malts, stone fruit like unripe plums, herbs and a hint of coriander.

Tastes of Belgian yeasts, malts, plastic, hefe-weizen like in some ways. Not getting the sea water.

Medium, pulpy body, with little, fine carbonation.

I got this in Kazanlak, Bulgaria of all places, and brought it back to Redding, CA where I am drinking it, April 11th, 2019.

Bought 1 330ml bottle at a market in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
Pours a light good with a thin white head, a light yeast nose.
Not much flavor at all ,kind of a weak Bud taste with a bit of salt.
Not my cup of tea at all.

330ml. bottle. Pours a cloud gold colour, with a good head that leaves a big lace. Smell is mainly tropical fruits, whit some citrus and cereal. No salty notes. Light body, crispy but soft texture. Taste is again tropical fruits and citrus, though this time the salt is more evident, specially in the aftertaste, but nothing disgusting, in fact, very drinkable. Just very soft palate.

IMHO the seawater is pretty noticeable (smell and taste). Loved it. It's a very original beer. I will repeat!

Served in a mug, it pours a very hazy, viscous, pale yellow with a two-finger head, good retention.

Definitely smells salty, mineral-like, sweet malts, yeasty and a faint hint of fruit as in ripe pineapple, orange.

This beer has a pleasant, soft character, and a nice balance. There´s a salty, mineral tone underlying the flavor constantly, and the sweet malts, the slightly fruitiness and the yeasty notes rotate themselves. There´s a mexican drink which is somewhat similar to this, both in flavor and in mouthfeel, and it's called tepache.
The finish is salty and bittersweet, long.
Viscous, velvety mouthfeel yet light body, with low carbonation.

An ok experiment, but nothing more.

Poured into pint.
Pours completely cloudy amber beer, thin white head, short retention.
Smell - bready, salty, somewhat spicy, sunflower seeds.
Taste - slightly salty, yeast esters, floral notes, grassy hops in the finish.
Very smooth body and soft carbonation, chewy.
Weird, but refreshing.

Pours a very cloudy golden color with virtually no head. Lacing is minimal. There is a lot of sediment. Light, bready aroma with a very mild floral aspect. Maybe slightly salty. Not much too it. Almost has an aroma I would expect from a lager. Pale malty taste. Very watered down. Slightly floral but not much of a hop aspect to it. Not a very displeasing taste, but there is just nothing there. Maybe slightly astringent at the end. Overall light and crisp, though. There is moderate to heavy carbonation.

330 ml bottle with a date stamp of 7-13-15 served in a lager glass.

Cloudy apricot-copper body with a very good white head.

Aroma: fruity and spicy; dominated by notes of soft ripe fruits.

Apparent use of a Belgian style yeast given the flavor profile. Fruity with hints of light yeasty bread, banana, pear and apple. Sea salt is evident in the aftertaste.

Medium-high and lively but not harsh carbonation. Light body.

From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Watchinh Sons of Anarchy 2x08. As I expected, sea water doesnt add anything good to beer but just the opposite. Bad smell and worst taste. Lots of foam.

Reviewed live in Grenada, Spain. 12oz bottle bought for ~3€

Intense head with large bubbles that dissipated to a ring in about fifteen seconds. Audible carbonation. Golden orange with a hint of cloudiness. Not getting much on the nose, fruit and spices want to play, but the smell of the hotel glass is more pronounced. Kinda boring. Maybe it's cause the label says sea water but I swear I get a touch of salt. Taste is reminiscent of a Belgian style with a spicy tint to it. Unimpressed. Mouth feel is intense. Too intense. After taking a small sip and letting it sit, it exploded in my mouth and I swallowed foam. Not surprising now looking at the bottle. I poured half of it into my glass and now the bottle is half liquid half foam. Overall, when the look is the best thing about a beer, there isn't much more to say.

33 cl. brown glass bottle, best by 291016
2,25€ @ Superservis, S.A., C/ Avinyo 11-13, Barcelona, ES

Appearance: Cloudy gold-orange. Bright white head. It teems with life as the fine-bubbled and seemingly natural carbonation lifts chunks and specks of yeast up into the glass and then releases them to drop and re-join the procession. Oddly, it has a Limited head retention and next to no lacing.

Aroma: Salt and the pulp of previously squeezed citrus fruits including lemon and grapefruit.

Flavor: The saltiness hits you, but not heavily, just slightly before the softly sweet malt and fruitiness. In the first few sips that could be either off-putting or enticing, depending on your own palate. There's a very mild tartness to it - ever so slight - which could be coming just from the yeast; and a clean salinity. A very mild bitterness helps to balance it, and it's a rather nice progression with salt followed by lemon, golden malty sweetness, and then more salt and a ghost of lemon in the lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied on the light side, and effervescent and crisp.

Overall: Ahhh Barcelona. What a better summation of its aromas than this? The sea, the fruit, the underlying funkiness... 'tis Barcelona in a glass.

The beer leads off promising, with a nose of slight funkiness and what I can only describe as the smell of "crispness". However, it ended up tasting like a slightly saline malt liquor. If the body was dialed down and tartness showed up, then this would have been awesome.
