teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2013
On tap at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a hazy pale straw colour with a large white head. Fine bubbles that last long. Aroma is stright saisony, with some grass and flowers, some barnyard and citrus notes. Taste is sweet-dry, nicely balanced, with the juniper adding a touch of woody and sweet component. Still quite dry and citrusy. Some band-aid. Cucumber is there in finish, as it warms up a bit. Overall, I expected a more markedly different beer, but this is a solid saison.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a fine, white cream head. Certainly some cucumber in the nose, light floral notes. Light to medium sweet flavor with some doughy sugars, mild cucumber. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with light hay bitterness, fresh cucumber, dough. Nice, drinkable stuff with pleasant cucumber integration.

harrisoni (13156) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury and drunk at home. Hazy pale gold colour with lasting white head. Saison yeast aroma with some spice from the juniper. Some lemon. Some soap and lemon in the mouth. The aroma is good. With some of that aroma coming through in the flavour and then some white pepper spicy hops on the finish. Certainly refreshing and tasty. Cucumber comes through. A good flavoured saison.

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.

Beersiveknown (2725) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle from abm
hazy pale blonde with fluffy offwhite head. Dusty hessian and cucumber peel. Even without the name the aroma gives the game away. Dry spicey fruit notes. Slushy cucumber, medium body, fairly astringent finish. Pretty decent but needs more juniper. Adding gin and tonic makes it decent.

mR_fr0g (2392) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Keg at the brewery. Translucent bright yellow coloured pour with. A pure white frothy white head. Aroma is saison yeast, cucumber and lightly spiced pepper. Flavoyr is fresh pepper, cucumber frssh , doughy wheat malts. Don’t get a lot of juniper, maybe a little spicy note. Cucumber comes through pretty well . palate is light and crisp and nice drying finish. Very nice spiced herb veg beer.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap at Brew by Numbers, pours a cloudy pale golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out loads of cucumber, light juniper and yeast. Flavour brings out lots of cucumber and twiggy, earthy notes. Highly dry and drinkable, with an earthy finish. Decent stuff.

Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Mild minerals. Fresh dry cucumber. Brief floral note in the mid. Finishes dry with a fruity tangy vibe that must be the juniper I guess. Interesting beer but a bit dry.

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.
