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.

Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle sharing! Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Hunahpu’s snifter. Notes from last night’s Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a cloudy golden color. The head is a one finger white shade with great texturing. S: A lot of cucumber on the nose - like whoa. Best part is how it combines with a touch of acetic, vinegary tartness to create a vibe of pickles. Pickles in beer - and I’m enjoying it. T: The flavor profile loses the faint hint of tartness in the nose, so there are less ’pickle’ qualities and more ’cucumber’ ones. Rather simple, unfortunately - the only other significant note I can detect are some midpalate tropical fruits and a vague hint of bready malts. Having said that, the singular flavors this provides are balanced and melded superbly. M: At first sip, it seems heavy, thick, and almost yeasty...and then it leaves the palate in a rapid fashion. The finish is pure crisp, dry, light goodness. Well carbonated and so damn refreshing. O: Shockingly good! This could make me enjoy cucumber a lot more...well played, Cigar City. This would be fantastic in the summer time.

Bottle. Cloudy apricot with one finger of fuzzy, sticky white. Pure cucumber in the nose. Funk mixes with the stuff almost to pickle levels. Pear, funk, white pepper, dill. Weird flavor. Up front, cucumber mixes with pear, pepper and crackers. The swallow is dry and mildly bitter. Touch of funk. Refreshing as shit. Light body with high nudges of carbonation. Again, quite refreshing. Zips off the palate with every sip. Smells more like pickles, tastes more like cucumber. Tasty; refreshing; unique. Love the flavor blend. If this were in a can, there might not be any better hot weather beer.

Pours a slightly hazy gold to light amber. Aromas of cucumber(obviously), spice and citrus - slight hints of funky must. Faint honey sweetness followed by the unusual cucumber flavor finishing with intermingled spices. High carbonation on the palate with a light crisp body. Different but refreshing Saison.

Fölur, hálftær. Ilmar af súrum gúrkum, ekki óþægilega. Bragðið er það sama en talsvert sterkara. Eiginlega ekki hægt.

Certainly hits the target. Nose is heavy cuke. Taste is heavier cuke with hints of a grainy saison backbone. Not something I can drink much of but it definitely has a solid idea behind it and lands well within flavor expectations.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
Big bottle, probably 750 ml. Cloudy wheat yellow. Smells exactly like what cucumber bread would, if that is a thing. Some others sampling thought the was a pickle taste, but I thought is stayed true to cucumber and maybe some wild yeast funk. Smooth body. Unique. On a personal note, my first Confederate rating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (1202) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours a mildly murky golden color with migrating carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass. A large sudsy, bumpy, off-white head forms and retains well. Earthy notes, Belgian yeast, and cucumber are noted in the nose.it has a rather lively mouth feel. Cucumber flavor comes through prominently followed by a scorched flavor.

650 ml bottle
A very strange concoction lives up to the description on the label. Having had a few cucumber based beers I knew roughly what to expect. Even so this particular release carves out a very unique niche in the beer ecosystem. As long as nobody tries to make a cucumber imperial stout or cucumber sour I am fine with the occasional oddity.

Aroma / Appearance - A strong clear golden base shimmers with a rich vanilla head as company. Smelling like a glass full of garden salad, the aroma wafts up like the smell of a garden just after the morning dew melts away.

Flavor / Palate - Cucumber, trampled grass, and garden salad tickle the tongue before a splash of alcohol emerges. Refreshing from start to finish, the flavor profile confuses the palate. It would be interesting to pair this with something earthy to see how it changes the experience.

Straight out this is a bizarre beer. Pint bottle from local liquor store orlando. Pours bubbly yellow with white foam head. Aroma is cucumber, yeast, spice, fucking cucumber. Flavour is yeast, sweet with massive cucumber finish. Light body as you’d expect for a saison but has a lot of flavour. Lots of carbonation which heightens the cucumber hit. I’m not sure I like it but it is what it says on the tin. Wow

Bottle from unknown in trade. Pours a deep and slightly hazy, if luminous orange. Little bit of white head. Aroma cucumber, slight citrus bite, maybe a hint of barnyard funk as well. Body lively and slightly dry with a well-balanced effervescent finish. It is what it says it is, and has a pleasantly refreshing character. Probably wouldn’t seek this out, but nice enough to drink.
