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.

An excellent saison that had a very balanced amount of cucumber. Really excited to try and lived up to expectations!

Pour from a bottle is a nice clear golden with a white head. Aroma had a hint of cucumber and some spice. Taste is nice and smooth with a little cucumber taste. Leaves a clean after taste.

I respect what they went for here. Cucumber is a strong flavor and This beer has it. A beautiful summer bouquet of cucumbers before you even take a sip. I found the beer to be remarkably plain though. Essentially a pilsner taste with a ton of cucumber. It didnt seem overly complex.

22oz bottle. Pours a golden color with foamy white head. Aroma is mostly cucumber with some spices. Flavor is predominantly cucumber with some spices in the background. Maybe a bit too much cucumber for my tastes, but not bad at all.

Flight at the brewery. Clody yellow body with a small white head. Light bread, light grain, light yeast, veggies and cucumber wich is dominating the aroma and taste. Not a favourite.

Wonderful beer. Nice and tasty but not in your face. Has a great back end aroma. Seems very floral in the back end.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy beige color ale with a super large off-white foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of cucumber is actually quiet dominant with some peppery yeast notes also easily identifiable. Taste is dominated by cucumber notes with loads of peppery yeast and some rustic malt notes. This beer is really dry with loads of attenuation. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. A really interesting experience but cucumber notes are a bit too strong to withstand large quantities of this beer – this is a beer I would share gain with multiple friends.
