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.

Bottle 750ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG12, Ulfborg.

Clear medium yellow colour with a large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy cucumber, cucumber peel, dill. Flavour is moderate to light light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, dill, green cucumber. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO. a very strange beer but pleasent. [20120818]

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2012
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

Bottle shared at Craft by? Thanks whoever it was! Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light semi dry palate, soft and airy. Cucumber! Quite full on but fresh! A little peppery spice. Light crisp dry finish. Not bad but it’s all cucumber pretty much. The Thornbridge Wye did have a little citrus hop to balance things.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. An unclear, golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head. Mostly cucumber in the aroma, a faint note of spicyness and generic fruityness in the back. The flavor is also on the cucumber side, leaving little room for anything else. Some faint maltyness and a fruity touch too. Medium body, quite effervescent. Ok, I like cucumber, but this blend was too much for me. A strange one, sort of refreshing, but too much. 120818
