3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Appearance: Cloudy light golden with a moderate but quickly dissipating white head.
Aroma: Grass and cucumber dominate. Slight spicy yeast phenols.
Taste: Light, crackery malt upfront, quickly turning to phenol spices, and countered by fresh grass an cool cucumber to counter. Moderately strong bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a high carbonation.
Finish: Dry finish with some lingering bitterness and fresh cucumber.
Overall: An interesting beer for sure, but well thought out and executed with the spicy phenols of the farmhouse yeast being countered by the cool cucumber. Well balanced to keep the cucumber from overpowering.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a mostly fading white bubbly head. Earthy aroma, hint of spice, vegetables, cucumber. Taste is of citrus, followed by a burst of the cucumber and some spice. Really crisp and refreshing. Watery to oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Gorgeous.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. hazy golden with one finger head. i’m somewhat indifferent when it comes to cucumbers. somehow they’ve managed to really get a lot of cucumber flavor into this beer. that’s pretty impressive considering how flavorless the average cucumber is. light body with a light hop kick in the finish. it’s pretty simple on the palate, but I really dig the flavors.

On tap. Pours a fairly clear yellow with a stark white head. Smells like a cucumber salad - vegetable, vinegar, some fresh green herbs. Taste is similar - almost like drinking the rice wine vinegar left over from a food Asian cucumber salad. Don’t go into it looking for some strange take on a cucumber ale - it tells you exactly what it’s going to taste like, and does.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy apricot with one finger of fuzzy, sticky white. Pure cucumber in the nose. Funk mixes with the stuff almost to pickle levels. Pear, funk, white pepper, dill. Weird flavor. Up front, cucumber mixes with pear, pepper and crackers. The swallow is dry and mildly bitter. Touch of funk. Refreshing as shit. Light body with high nudges of carbonation. Again, quite refreshing. Zips off the palate with every sip. Smells more like pickles, tastes more like cucumber. Tasty; refreshing; unique. Love the flavor blend. If this were in a can, there might not be any better hot weather beer.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
