2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had this at the 2014 RB Pittsburgh Summer Gathering at Horny Develís place. Actually it was after the equinox at the beginning of fall, but DILLIGAF. Big thanks to James & Michelle for hosting such a nice spread of quality beers and for this particular beer a GIANT thanks goes out to artmcd8. Some cucumber in the nose. And now its getting stronger my nose says. Look is typical pale ale. Good cutting co2. Taste is sooooo cucumber fer sure. Like a cuke salad with no vinegar. Not bad but probably could not handle more than a half bottle of this. But hey, lets drink some cucumber smoothy. Not overwhelming but make no mistake, if you hate cukes, donít go after this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at a private tasting. Pours a hazy lemon with a medium sized fizzy white head. Poor head retention. Aroma of dill pickles, fresh cucumber, pale buttery malt. The taste is spicy dill pickles, fresh cucumber, pale malt. Medium bodied, lingering spice. Interesting, but not terribly drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a 750mL bottle. Pours clear golden with a thick white head that leaves average lace. The nose is cucumber with just a touch of spicy saison yeast. The flavor has a sweeter malt than I would like with the cucumber dominating and then just a touch of yeast again. The body is medium with very lively carbonation and a long sweet cucumber finish.

Bottle: Thanks, Chris. Semi-clear golden body with streams of bubbles heading upwards. Chunky, lasting off-white head. Aroma dominated by cucumber. Smells like a cucumber salad. A touch of musty cotton buried beneath it. Tastes like cucumber water. All cucumber, vegetal with some faint graininess & musty yeast. But mostly just cucumber. I mean, I like cucumber, of course... But this is a little too much. Tastes like liquified cucumber. Iím not trying to drink my veggies, here. Decent if you dig the salad vibe.

Pale hazy yellow appearance. Aroma of cucumber for sure. Flavor was cucumber, but in a pickle sort of way. This was the dominant flavor. Very interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at first sunday. Broken out late in the day and worked really well as a palate cleanser. Lots of cuke, refreshing and clean. The fruit is pretty dominant but just what I needed at the time.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
large bottle poured cloudy with a durable off-white head.
Both the aroma and the flavor feature cucumber flavor, although it unfortunately comes across as past its prime. Nice mix of sweet, tart and bitter components until the aftertaste which is a tad overly bitter.
