4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours white cloudy lemon with a nice off white head. Aroma brings big refreshing and lightly sweet cucumbers and the saison yeast under it. The flavor brings huge juicy refreshing cucumber notes so nice and replenishing on a hot summer day. The saison yeast is in the background but enough there to be noticed.

Thanks to fritz123 for this. Poured a light hazy golden color with almost no head. Huge aroma of garden cucumbers with a nice earthiness to it. Cucumber dominates the nose and the palate. I love this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Pours yellowish with puffy big head. Nose is bursting of fresh cucumber. Tastes of lots of cucumber, some yeast, pepper, hay, and grass. Just a bit off odd vegetal aftertaste. Lively and refreshing though Iím a sucker for cucumber beverages though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Misty orange yellow with a lively white cap. Nose is half-sours, hay, cucumber peels and honey. Crisp and long-pull refreshing. Fizzy then creamy. Taste is earthy cucumber; bitterness from the peel and seeds. Slight melon, grass, pith and white pepper. The hops easily could have dominated but here restrained to showcase the cuke. Very close but i would give the nod to the 7venth Sun gose i had last night.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smell is like cucumber and tart. Kind of pickle like. Taste is similar with saison yeast flavor and noticeable cucumber. Over carbonated. Interesting but a sample size is plenty of this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 22 oz bottle.
Aroma has a light phenolic note with a hint of honey and type some fruit. Nice cucumber forward note with some light malt notes.
Pours a cloudy, golden yellow with a large, moderately thick, fluffy white head that displays decent retention as it recedes to the edges.
Flavor is slightly acidic with some moderate honey and cracker malt notes. Some tropical and some fruit notes with a moderately strong cucumber note. Medium bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied worth medium carbonation. Low astringency and low also warmth.
Overall, I am not a huge fan of this beer. The malt and body are too strong for the refreshing cucumber notes. A really light Berliner might work well with cucumber or a drier Saison.
