Poured into a pils glass, this beer is an opaque straw color. Lots of carbonation here, but the head dissipates rather quickly. No lace to mention. The nose is a bit drab, with muted notes lemony soap and various earthy aromas. The taste, though, is where Martin House hits the home run here. A previous review suggests it has a strong "pickle brine" flavor to it, and I can't disagree with that. But it's pickle brine in a good way. So salty it'll make you pucker at first taste, but damn if it doesn't finish clean and leave you feeling refreshed. Tart lemons abound. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean.

Martin House, if you're not familiar with them, are doing some amazing beers right now. It's probably my favorite brewery in TX at the moment. And this beer is no exception. I discovered the Salty Lady last summer and have been enjoying ever since. It's great for cooling off on a hot summer's day or for unwinding after a long day at work. You probably either really like or don't much care for this, but I am firmly in the former corner. Delicious. Cheers to Martin House for giving us this one.

I recently tried the Salty Lady at a Dallas restaurant. Personally I am not sure that the salt was a good idea. It tasted a bit funny to me. Perhaps pepper would have been better. I thought it was OK and refreshing but not great.

Look: light golden with a thin white head

Aroma: wheat and lemon

Taste: Wheat crackers, lemon, and salt.

Feel: light body

Whoa, that was unexpected. There's a definite pickle brine component here. The brewery's website considered this akin to a sports drink on a 110-degree day, and I can actually kinda get that, as I always thought Lemon-Lime Gatorade had a bit of a brine component too. It all sounds kinda nuts, but it really does work, and, frankly, I appreciate the unique spin on gose, which is neither too funky, too overacidified, nor just a lightly tarted wheat beer. This is probably YMMV territory for most, I think it's 100% worth a look.
