The humble gherkin. Usually we encounter this unassuming green fruit pickled or sliced and flung atop a salad. But the cucumber has so much more to offer us. It is a remarkably refreshing gourd with the power to cool a dry tongue and when just two sliced wheels are placed atop the eyes of a lounging lass in a stock photo ad for a spa the mythical cucumber has the magical ability to justify obscene spa service fees. Truly an amazing botanical gift to the world. We chose to employ the cucumber in a low gravity Saison to create a refreshing seasonal ale redolent with notes of honey, tropical fruit, lemon bitterness, and of course cucumbers. Brewed as a survival tool for the Florida Summer this cucumber creation features Citra and Sorachi Ace hops. So put some cucumber wheels on your eyes, lean back, relax and enjoy. Ahhhhhhh.

750ml bottle from Liquor Loft. Yellow pour with a big fluffy head that leaves a solid quarter inch retention. Aroma is cucumber, spice and yeast. Tastes are cucumber... lots of cucumber. Also pickles and yeast. So, I don’t know what I was expecting here, but I was excited about this -- think maybe I was hoping for a mix of barnyard saison funk mixed with the cucumber. This is just straight up vegetable tasting cucumber brew. If that was the goal, they nailed it. I’m up for any CC concoctions, but man... this was rough.

Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head. Nose is fresh cucumber with a "garden" smell.....quite pleasant and different. Taste is sweet with cucumber predominance and light and drinkable... also a musty note but not in a negative way. Finish is sweet and ends as it starts with a cucumber predominance.

Pours a hazy gold with a white head and unique aroma of fresh cucumber and floral notes. Taste is certainly of cucumber, along with fruits, honey, and hops, while with a sweet finish. Very unique brew featuring cucumber, that drinks easy and tastes good.

jejee, Esto huele como si estuvieses en una huerta de pepinos. Curioso el toque del Sorachi y el Citra. A ver, el aspecto es como decirlo, distinta, espuma raruna y bastante turbia. Se aleja del standard de Cigar City. Con 40º a la sombra tiene que ser increible, eso si. Pero no se ha dado la coincidencia.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2012 2012 Edition Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance: Pours a cloudy medium gold with a 3 finger frothy eggshell white head. Nice head retention with the head finally leaving a small layer of foam which sort of pools in the middle. Decent lacing. Smell: Earthy saison notes with freshly cut cucumbers dominating. I detect a touch of melon as well. It’s a nice, refreshing aroma that doesn’t overpower. Taste: Sweet, fresh cucumber mixed with bitter cucumber rind up front with a touch of mango followed by mild traditional saison notes and a touch of honey in the middle before ending with melon and more cucumber. Aftertaste is bitter cucumber rind, black pepper and a touch of sweet melon. Very complex flavor that is fairly refreshing. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied with a high amount of prickly carbonation. Drinkability: Decent drinkability, but you will want to share the bottle with a friend. I couldn’t finish my second glass. Overall: Pretty good beer overall. I like that Cigar City pushes the envelope. Cucumber is not something I typically associate with beer and there may be a good reason for that. That said, it’s a solid beer that is worth a try.

750 ml bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a copper color, somewhat hazy, with a large white head. The nose is certainly a big cucumber burst, very light and fresh. The flavor is very light sweet cucumber, light spices, very much like a water I had with cucumber at a San Diego bar, this is it is very clean and refreshing.

Bottle courtesy of Cheeseman! I love cucumber and this has it in spades. The aroma smells like amped up cucumber....a member of our tasting crew said it reminded him of Bath and Body works cucumber melon soap, and I found that to be accurate. What a perfect summer drink! The citra gives it a perfect counter of lemon and the yeast is spot on for a Saison. Love love love this.

Bottle shared by Dallas
Appearance: Hazy golden with a medium sized white head and some lacing. Aroma and taste of cucumber and mild spices. A light beer but would taste great on a hot day.

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap and from the bottle, with thick white head that dissipates and decent lacing. Aroma is fresh, vegetal, belgian yeast. Taste is the clean cucumber taste of water, with little beer feel at all. Could have been much better, but refreshing during the summer.

Poured from a 750ml bottle thanks to Jason. This is a Bath and Bottleworks beer. Huge cucumber character, slight spicy pepper. Very refreshing.
