Tap at CCB. Nose is intense fresh cucumber, some light pepper, grain, and a very faint sour, almost fruity, note. Pour is yellow with a white head. Taste is very refreshing. All cucumber. Some grain on the finish and a touch of lemon zest. Very nice on a hot day and a good change between sippin’ on that brandy zhukov. Great!!

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Mike! Hazy golden pour with nice fluffy white head, aroma has notes of big cucumber, pear, peach, some white grape, biscuit, bready notes with some yeast, touch of grape. Taste is lots of cucumber, with a slight hint of spice, lemon, finishing with more cucumber. Like cucumber juice, very refreshing, but tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Milky, yellow orange appearance with a nice white head. Surprisingly, it does smell like cucumber. Green veggie, lemon citrusy, a bit spicy, refreshing aroma. Super rich cucumber, veggie, orange/lemon citrusy, somewhat spicy, overly thick cucumber flavor. Somewhat refreshing but way too much cucumber. This may be a cool beer with the cucumber tamed down.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a clear light golden color with maybe a touch of cucumber. That’s unfortunately there’s the only place with just a touch of cucumber. The nose smells like cucumber juice. It tastes like cucumber water. Light body; no real beer character. It says saison, but I don’t get any sort of pilsner or bready malt, nor is there anything indicating saison yeast. Just cucumber. It doesn’t taste bad, but it’s not beer.

Draft at the Cigar City tasting room. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is pure fresh cut cucumbers. Flavor is dominated by the cucumbers up front, but the saison spices become more noticeable later on. Very interesting, tasty and refreshing.

On tap at Tapestry, hazy yellow pour, small head/lacing. Notes of cucumbur, stale pale, green veggies, wet kind bud from back in the day. Easy going but not enough flavor or body to hold onto.
