4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle from jbrunner. Thanks. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that has fair retention. The aroma is medium with cucumbers, peanuts and more cucumbers. The taste, like the aroma, features lots of cucumbers, a hint of lemons all set nicely in a neutral malt base. The palate was light but effective and the carbonation was soft. Finished long and dry with lingering cucumbers. Overall: This beer exceeded my expectations, I loved it--perhaps because I really like cucumbers. Well done CCB.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Pours yellowish with puffy big head. Nose is bursting of fresh cucumber. Tastes of lots of cucumber, some yeast, pepper, hay, and grass. Just a bit off odd vegetal aftertaste. Lively and refreshing though I’m a sucker for cucumber beverages though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Misty orange yellow with a lively white cap. Nose is half-sours, hay, cucumber peels and honey. Crisp and long-pull refreshing. Fizzy then creamy. Taste is earthy cucumber; bitterness from the peel and seeds. Slight melon, grass, pith and white pepper. The hops easily could have dominated but here restrained to showcase the cuke. Very close but i would give the nod to the 7venth Sun gose i had last night.

Cucumber mixed in really well with other elements here. Pours golden with decent head and lacing. Light hay. Understated and well balanced. Thanks to Jerry for a taste of this at Churchkey.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smell is like cucumber and tart. Kind of pickle like. Taste is similar with saison yeast flavor and noticeable cucumber. Over carbonated. Interesting but a sample size is plenty of this.

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.

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.
