Low salinity but very creamy and buttery. Nice to have when mixed with high brine varieties. David C. Peters on March 21, 2018 at 4:04 pm Rating 1 Very mild oysters with melon rind flavors. Almost no salinity or brine of any sort. Nice creaminess, but all in all, too mild for want to order again. I actually needed to add condiments to finish the plate, which is extraordinarily rare.
