COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Kind of an ugly light tan with a light head. The aroma is just massive cucumber with a light spiciness. Cucumber mixed with mellow spice on the palate. The malts are terribly dynamic but the refreshing cucumber is a nice addition.

Aroma of pickles, floral, and a hint of yeast. Pours light with a good film. Taste is weird. Pickles, flour and grass. Not pleasant at all. Cool try.

StPeteBeerMan (52) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Pours light golden with thin white head. The cucumber smell and taste are very potent. Also tastes of wheat and light yeast flavor. The cucumber with alcohol almost gives a light dry pickle flavor on the back of the tongue. Nice and refreshing. Excellent summer beer.
