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.

I personally love the infusion of cucumber in my refreshing beverages and this one did not disappoint. Was a saison with a hint of cucumber. Little sour, little bitter, little cucumber. Was nicely spicy and citrusy with that hint of cucumber. Had on tap at the Independent in Tampa. Worked well as a nice, refreshing summer brew. Golden and hazy in appearance. No real head to speak of but could have been the pour. I considered this a nice twist on a standard that might have seemed gimicky but it worked! Nice combo. I would certainly enjoy having this again

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.

On tap. Pours a fairly clear yellow with a stark white head. Smells like a cucumber salad - vegetable, vinegar, some fresh green herbs. Taste is similar - almost like drinking the rice wine vinegar left over from a food Asian cucumber salad. Don’t go into it looking for some strange take on a cucumber ale - it tells you exactly what it’s going to taste like, and does.

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.

thejon375 (414) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2015
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 (1245) - 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.
