Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear pale yellow. A thin white head rests atop. Nose is of wheat, malt, crackers. Ample carbonation. This beer was crisp and easy to drink. Nice mellow smooth flavor of wheat, lemon zest, white bread. This beer was a nice simple break from the big bold beers I've had of late. My first of the style as well. Not sure how representative this is, but I liked it. Great beer for the summer months.

12 oz bottle from Trader’s Joe. Pours golden with short-lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of funky yeast, wheat malt and hint of spices. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of wheat malt, salt, spices, herbal hops and hint of citrus. Finish is long and salty. I like salt.

undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Confess very limited familiarity with this style, and I sampled it without, at first, knowing or guessing the style. Sparkling clear despite a thin coat of sediment left on the bottom of the bottle.

Light and tart, as expected for style, but with a lemon and apricot fruitiness. Good dosage of coriander; sufficient to have a clear yet subtle effect on the flavor, aroma and aftertaste. Light body with medium-high carbonation that's a bit coarse.

Overall: A light, fruity and refreshing version of this style. Little in the way of salt or wheat. Improved with warming, allowing more of the malts to come forward.

12 oz bottle served cold into a pint glass.

Saint Saltan is a very pale golden yellow color with a slight haze. The head is fizzy and short lived with no lacing left behind.

Aroma is mild and sweet with a bit of a yellow corn element.

Flavor is also fairly mild with lemon, coriander, and slightly spicy European hops. The salt is there but it's not a distraction.

Mouthfeel is light in body and appropriately carbonated.

Overall not a bad beer but also not one I would get again.

Very pale yellow color with light carbonation and mild head. Unique salty aroma. Salty flavor with a creamy, savory element and herbal, citrus and coriander notes. Maintains its head throughout the beer. Surprisingly good. Good taste, complexity and body. Could use less carbonation.
