2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. An unclear, golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head. Mostly cucumber in the aroma, a faint note of spicyness and generic fruityness in the back. The flavor is also on the cucumber side, leaving little room for anything else. Some faint maltyness and a fruity touch too. Medium body, quite effervescent. Ok, I like cucumber, but this blend was too much for me. A strange one, sort of refreshing, but too much. 120818

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, Momo’s Pizza. Hazy, tripel-looking beer. Aroma is half-and-half mix of pickles/cukes and bret-laced Belgian ale. Interesting, but not something that I’d want a lot of - a reasonable offering of Vlassic flavors and saison, but It was getting hard to choke down towards the end. Technically, pretty good. Initially, interesting. Long run, not my cup of tea. Medium body, fizzy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sampled at Ale Alpharetta. Pours yellow pour with a decent fluffy head with good retention. Aroma is of course cucumber, spice and yeast. Had not idea the cucumber would be that bright, obvious and bold. Taste is more, much much more cucumber. Like fresh sliced, straight from the farm cucumber. At that point, that is all I could taste. I like cucumber, but this turned out just straight weird for me. Not horrible, but pretty close to offputting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Deep, dark orangish-gold with a nice head. Nose is cucumber, pickle, just pickles. Flavor also not so salty but cucumber and a bit of salty pickle. A little funky, grassy, somewhat vegetal. Interesting as hell, but I won’t say it’s great. Not terrible, though.
