Murky orange with massive, flotsam, white head / Light, bright, acidic nose of cucumber, dry hops, faint orchard fruit, and spice / Light to medium body, crisp and acidic, vibrant fine carbonation, delightfully salty, hoppy but good malt balance, and light bitterness on the dry finish / Elegant flavors of cucumber water and salt, with notes of green apple, banana, coriander, and oak? / Really enjoy this. Wish I were in Florida, and it were summer.

Great taste; very light and refreshing. The cucumber smell is much more intense than the flavor.

Gherkins aren’t just for jerkin’. They’re for drinkin’. Wow. More than 900 reviews later, and I’m still as weird and immature as I was with my first rating. Oh well. What could be more satisfying than combining a staple summer beer with a gourd renowned for its thirst-quenching abilities. Not much, that’s what. Sometimes, beers like this take on a strange vegetable aroma and taste that’s unpleasant. Somehow, Cucumber Saison manages to smell and taste completely like a cucumber without being the least bit offensive. There are the fruity, spicy, and earthy elements - like in many Saisons - and they blend wonderfully with the cucumber. And did I mention refreshing?

A- Cucumbers, dirt.
A- Light orange color, slightly hazy liquid, white head.
T- Cucumbers, slightly musty.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish.
O- This seems like one of those beers you either love or hate. I was no doubt on the lover side of things. Is that disturbing since it’s a cucumber beer? Or am I just been perverted now. I digress. Smells and tastes just like a cucumber. Very refreshing. Not out of this world but I’d love to have a few more of these for the dog days of summer....instead of drinking it on a 20 degree night in November like I just did.

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 Ł3.25 for a third pint.

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.
