3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the pub. Served with a slice of cucumber. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma is dry, wheaty, some lemon notes. The cucumber slice really comes through. Flavor is crisp, with a wheaty flavor, cucumber freshness, herbal and light. Different take but it works.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Black Star Coop in Austin, TX. This was served with a cucumber wedge, which was a novel and charming touch, but which seriously dampened my ability to discern the beer’s aroma. What I can say? It smelled like a cucumber. That said, the palate was just right for a wheat beer, as it was light easily guzzled in the Texas heat. Flavors included banana, spring water, and, of course, cucumber. I really hope that someone else comes along and rates this, and I further hope that person likes wheat beers more than I do. I feel vaguely guilty for giving these enterprising folks such a low score.
