Juniper aroma is significant. As for the taste, the juniper is loaded up front but quickly dissipates. The cucumber adds a refreshing blast. This beer could use a bit more carbonation (note - I just found this rating on my phone from earlier in the year, so maybe new bottles are fine). The unique flavors work really well together. This is a great experiment by the Brew By Numbers crew.

jackl (5806) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2013
Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s hazy gold with a tiny white head. The aroma’s strong floral hops. Light juniper and hints of spicy ginger. A bit of pimms-soaked fruit salad. Light wheaty bite. The taste is full of fresh cucumber. Mint cordial. Fresh berry and herb. Mild fruity tang. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, I seem to like these cucumber beers. Cool stuff.

The taste is smooth, fresh cucumber, hay, floral, spice, touch of peppery juniper, faint banana and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, peppery and refreshing. Enjoyable.
