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.

Poured light golden with a small white head. Aroma of spicy cucumber. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, soft malt. Lingering spiciness.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is cucumber, herbs, spices, salad. Flavour is dry fruity peppery notes, some spicy yeast, this is actually a cucumber saison. Nice.

Dogbones (116) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Honestly, I hate cucumbers but I really appreciate this beer. Very summery (is that a word). Smells like a fresh salad. Hazy golden yellow in Clorox. Very refreshing and no saison flavor at all. Surprisingly, I love this!

nuplastikk (4347) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2014
750ml bottle shared by Madbeerbaron. Pronounced cucumber aroma. Hazy unfiltered orange body. Salad beer, this is a whole new creature. Green. Completely unique, odd. Spinach. Fascinating and way out there. OK.

750 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm in Jan 2013. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have distinct cucumber, mild citrus, additional fruity notes, grass, pale malt with mild sweetness. The flavor has a mix of fresh and cooked cucumber.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Super hazy golden coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of tons of cucumber, grass, hay, yeast, wheat, alcohol and even more cucumber - very fresh and refreshing! Light-bodied; Strong cucumber flavour throughout with a light wheat taste and a mild kick of hay and grass - mild, yet very refreshing. Aftertaste only shows a bit of the malt, some light grass and hay and some very mild coriander seed and spices, but the cucumber cuts through everything and leaves the palate very nice. Overall, a very well-made beer, perfect to the name - a saison with a dry and fresh kick and nicely laced cucumber flavour. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased a few minutes ago from Lueken’s Liquors in Dunedin, Florida on 01-January-2014 for US$10.99 sampled in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida on 01-January-2014

Dans ma grande coupe apparaît une robe dorée et une mousse un peu folle. Au nez, ça transpire le concombre libanais et le concombre de jardin qui déborde de pépins. J’imagine derrière le légume des esters fruités et des arômes délicatement épicés. Au goût, rien de bien notable en provenance des houblons annoncés. Les saveurs tournent véritablement autour du concombre et de la levure. Ce n’est pas méchant du tout. Je dirais que c’est unique. Quelques herbes qui poussent subitement sur ma langue. Indéniablement, je me trompe quant à la présence des cultivars. En bouche, je constate que ce liquide est très agité. Heureusement, ce n’est rien de catastrophique. En finale, les notes végétales ne me plaisent pas particulièrement tandis que les notes de la levure ne font que passer très rapidement.
