  1. Rating 4

    Very plump oyster encompassing nearly the entire smallish shell. Low salinity but very creamy and buttery. Nice to have when mixed with high brine varieties.

  2. 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.

    Size: medium-large

    Sweet: 7 sweetness of sea lettuce/ cucumber brine

    Mild: 6 creamy and full bodied

    Briny: 3 briny seas on the back end. Gentle sail

    Bold: 3 not aggressive but well balanced, light metallic back end with a soft brine

    Well balanced. Clean and easy from start to finish. Combination of sweetness at the start.. followed by a large creamy center with a soft and sweet brine on the back end.
