The trend of sour beers continues to inspire new brews, like Elysian Brewing’s latest seasonal release, Salt & Seed, made with watermelon and kosher salt. Classified as a gose-style beer using malted white wheat, its fermentation process reflects the unique flavor profile of tart, citrus sourness, herbaceous flavor notes, and notable saltiness.
Elysian’s Salt & Seed is a refreshing interpretation of a gose, as well as evoking the popular habit of sprinkling a bit of salt on fresh watermelon to enhance its flavor. As a sour beer, Salt & Seed is made for sunny, warm days, with complex tartness that cuts through the heat and perks up the palate. Available in stores and on draft.
