3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold to light amber. Aromas of cucumber(obviously), spice and citrus - slight hints of funky must. Faint honey sweetness followed by the unusual cucumber flavor finishing with intermingled spices. High carbonation on the palate with a light crisp body. Different but refreshing Saison.

Fölur, hálftær. Ilmar af súrum gúrkum, ekki óþægilega. Bragðið er það sama en talsvert sterkara. Eiginlega ekki hægt.

Certainly hits the target. Nose is heavy cuke. Taste is heavier cuke with hints of a grainy saison backbone. Not something I can drink much of but it definitely has a solid idea behind it and lands well within flavor expectations.

Big bottle, probably 750 ml. Cloudy wheat yellow. Smells exactly like what cucumber bread would, if that is a thing. Some others sampling thought the was a pickle taste, but I thought is stayed true to cucumber and maybe some wild yeast funk. Smooth body. Unique. On a personal note, my first Confederate rating.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a mildly murky golden color with migrating carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass. A large sudsy, bumpy, off-white head forms and retains well. Earthy notes, Belgian yeast, and cucumber are noted in the nose.it has a rather lively mouth feel. Cucumber flavor comes through prominently followed by a scorched flavor.

650 ml bottle
A very strange concoction lives up to the description on the label. Having had a few cucumber based beers I knew roughly what to expect. Even so this particular release carves out a very unique niche in the beer ecosystem. As long as nobody tries to make a cucumber imperial stout or cucumber sour I am fine with the occasional oddity.
Aroma / Appearance - A strong clear golden base shimmers with a rich vanilla head as company. Smelling like a glass full of garden salad, the aroma wafts up like the smell of a garden just after the morning dew melts away.
Flavor / Palate - Cucumber, trampled grass, and garden salad tickle the tongue before a splash of alcohol emerges. Refreshing from start to finish, the flavor profile confuses the palate. It would be interesting to pair this with something earthy to see how it changes the experience.

Straight out this is a bizarre beer. Pint bottle from local liquor store orlando. Pours bubbly yellow with white foam head. Aroma is cucumber, yeast, spice, fucking cucumber. Flavour is yeast, sweet with massive cucumber finish. Light body as you’d expect for a saison but has a lot of flavour. Lots of carbonation which heightens the cucumber hit. I’m not sure I like it but it is what it says on the tin. Wow

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from unknown in trade. Pours a deep and slightly hazy, if luminous orange. Little bit of white head. Aroma cucumber, slight citrus bite, maybe a hint of barnyard funk as well. Body lively and slightly dry with a well-balanced effervescent finish. It is what it says it is, and has a pleasantly refreshing character. Probably wouldn’t seek this out, but nice enough to drink.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is vegetal, cucumber, straw, peppercorn. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry eith a strong vegetal presence and sulphur finish. Overall this brew is horrible. I drain poured it.
