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.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of FrumptyDumpty. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a white head. Thick cucumber aroma with a slight vinegary edge to it. Light body, a little yeast, very dry and then comes the cucumber again combined with dill I think. Ends dryish with a slight tartness to it. I pick up absolutely no Citra or Sorachi Ace though. 280712

July 2012 bottle. Holy shit the aroma is still awesome fresh cucumber. This beer still tastes great with really fresh cucumber aroma and taste despite the age. I wish I saved this for a sushi dinner like I planned. Despite the age it has held up way beyond what I expected.

Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is cucumber at first with some slight yeast funk and some malty notes. Flavor is funky saison with plenty of cucumber character. This is so good! Very refreshing too! I’d definitely be interested in trying other cucumber saisons.

Bottled @ The Hague Tasting, small sample. Hazy golden color, medium head. Smells like cucumber salad, hint of pepper, cream & chive. Loads of cucumber and it actually dominates so much, you hardly realise you are drinking beer. But still it is a very pleasant drinker. Refreshing. Great.

Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of me. Thnx to hopscotch for sending me this! Pours a clear golden beer with a massive white head on top. Aroma is pure cucumber with pepper and sweet spicy spices. Like a cucumber salad. Awesome. Flavor is like drinking a vitamin juicy, which makes me feel good about drinking this beer. The cucumber is really present here, making a perfect veggie beer. Amazing!

Bottle at THT March edition. Hazy gold pour with thick white head. Aroma is cucumbers, pepper, really intense. Taste is vegetal, gaspacho, avocado, cucumber, pepper. Palate is light, really refreshing. Strange, really interesting stuff.

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!
