Wonderful golden clear color. Smell is off tart sugar candy and sour gummies. Taste is incredible. Makes you pucker just at a sip. Carbonation flows throughout as the salt and sourness floods your palate. Amazing sour. I love it

The lightly hazy pale golden yellow colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 3/4” fluffy white head that leaves a few scattered patches of lacing as it recedes slowly but visibly until it becomes a small ring around the glass and a thin irregular island on the surface. At first sipping creates a some scattered patches of lacing but eventually there are only widely scattered small patches of lacing on the sides of the glass.

The aromas have some lemony acidity, some herbal character, a lightly musty character (moss?) and a hint of bready malt. There’s also a very light but noticeable briny and seaweed smell (think iodine) along with a very light bit of smokiness.

The flavors which initially focus on the lemony tartness and a bit of citric zest are noticeably backed up by some complexities which are hard to unravel but seem to come from the moss (a bit of musty smell), some herbs and some brine. The sweetness from the malt remains in the background where there’s also a light smoky character and just a bit of iodine from the kelp but not much bitterness.

The mouth feel is on the light side of medium bodied and slightly crisp and prickly from the moderate carbonation and the acidic tartness. The finish is mostly about the slow fading of all of the flavors. The kelp, herb and moss flavors are mingled in with the tartness that dominates the salty, iodine tinged ending that shows just a bit of smokiness but little bitterness until this all disappears and the very long ending is eventually all about the even slower disappearance of the lemony tartness.

Overall this strikes me as being a reasonably well made beer that displays a strong tartness and just a bit of almost hidden salt but also has a good bit of subtle complexity added in from some herbs, some moss, some wheat and a bit if smoke. The beer is also temperature sensitive in that a lot of the subtle complexities began to show more as the beer warmed towards room temperature. That all said I’ll probably not be having this one again since I would prefer the tartness to be more in the background. (I should also add that if I had not had some of these ingredients before, there’s no way I would have been able to recognize they were there and identify them without knowing the ingredients list.)

Appearance – Absolutely no head on a clear, slightly greenish yellow body. 5 oz, sample glass.

Aroma – Pineapple, a bit herbal, some smokiness. Unusual but good.

Taste – Quite sour and a bit herbal, some salty smokiness thrown in.

Mouthfeel – Very refreshing and easy drinking.

Overall – The description sure looked weird but it worked. Worth looking for.
