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.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Clear golden body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of gin, cucumber and mint. Refreshing flavour of cucumber, tonic water and cereal. Thin to medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Light fizz. Really good, but quite pricey at £3.25 for a third pint.

Keg at Bat. Clear golden. Nose is quite bad, earthy, grass. Tastes really cucumber, some herbs, sweetish fruits, grass. Way better than smell.

Awesome trade as always with Mr.Simonelli. Thanks Mike. Pours a golden colour, lots if carbonation, decent white head that recedes to a thin film, no lacing. Nose is dominantly cucumber, followed by fruit, very very light sweet malt. Tastes sweet, cucumber is in the forefront, giving way to a touch of hop and a little tropical fruit, there is a jolly rancher essence too. Been waiting to try this for awhile, and I really do like this strange brew.

Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2015 - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has pale malt, cucumbers and veggie fleshiness. It has a medium body with sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with cucumber, spice, mild tart6ness and some dirty earth. Very nice.

Bottle from brother who lives in Flo Rida and takes the CCB tour every weekend just to get tanked. Thanks! Poured kind of hazy. Intense aromas of dirt and earthworm excrement. Taste is semi dry with no perceptible bitterness. Flavors of unwashed cucumber straight from the dirt. Dirty. Watery. Not my thing. Thanks, but a better use for a cucumber would be up Nirls anus.

TH28 (277) - - AUG 1, 2015
750ml bottle. Appearance: Cloudy light golden with a moderate but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma: Grass and cucumber dominate. Slight spicy yeast phenols. Taste: Light, crackery malt upfront, quickly turning to phenol spices, and countered by fresh grass an cool cucumber to counter. Moderately strong bitterness. Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a high carbonation. Finish: Dry finish with some lingering bitterness and fresh cucumber. Overall: An interesting beer for sure, but well thought out and executed with the spicy phenols of the farmhouse yeast being countered by the cool cucumber. Well balanced to keep the cucumber from overpowering.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a mostly fading white bubbly head. Earthy aroma, hint of spice, vegetables, cucumber. Taste is of citrus, followed by a burst of the cucumber and some spice. Really crisp and refreshing. Watery to oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Gorgeous.

bottle. hazy golden with one finger head. i’m somewhat indifferent when it comes to cucumbers. somehow they’ve managed to really get a lot of cucumber flavor into this beer. that’s pretty impressive considering how flavorless the average cucumber is. light body with a light hop kick in the finish. it’s pretty simple on the palate, but I really dig the flavors.
