3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a richer pale straw hue, gentle dulled body and haze, a touch of yellow glow. Frothy bright white head atop dies to a filmy layer, laces small. Aromas firm green garden, cool cucumber, and gentle bready malt. A more dominant earthy cool cucumber, gentle green pepper, mellow earthy hops. Initial is lighter end of the fold, bigger cucumber elements, green, cool, refreshing. A touch of earth, bready and grainy malt bill. Fairly clean. Middle is more cucumber, touch of citrus, bready and straw malt feel, bit of grass, dough. Backend is cool, a bit bready, doughy. Mellow sweetness mixes with a sustained cucumber feel, bit of fruity apple, lemon. Some drynessn lingering cool cucumber finish. Unique and refreshing experiment. I enjoyed it but donít see me drinking a ton. Ok. Nose is unreal, potent.

Not good. Tastes like melon and cucumber perfume from bath and body works.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells solid; doughy with a nice cucumber presence. Tastes like it smells, but the cucumber comes across a little stronger. Average on the palate. A decent take on the style, but the cucumber flavor could be a little subtler.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Fresh briny cucumber aroma. Clear gold with a minimal white head. Strong cucumber flavor with a very mild bitter cucumber peel flavor in the finish. Light body, flat carbonation (not a fresh growler).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rule 34-A: If it is eatable or drinkable, thereís beer of it. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear golden color with a two-finger white head that leaves plently of lacing. Go ahead and take a wild guess at what the aroma is. Hey, youíre right! Not picking up anything else but cucumber in the nose. Taste is fresh cucumber very up front and strong, backed by salt, bread, light citrus, a hint of pine. Big taste, but still light and crisp. Taste is really starting to grow on me after a few drinks. Leaves a strong, lingering cucumber/dill pickle taste in your mouth that will not go away, (not a bad thing, in my opinion). Medium to light bodied, slick, sticky texture, average carbonation. Overall very nice! You have to be ready for this taste though. This is absolutely not for everyone. Would go great with a salad! I only bought one bottle as I wasnít sure if I would like it or not. Now Iím wishing Iíd got the whole 6-pack. Refreshing, crisp, very different and definitely original!

I thought this beer was really cool. A little bit of cucumber in the aroma. A very light body with a nice cucumber flavor. Unique and refreshing. I didnít know what to expect but I thought this was really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a really weird beer, and tasted/smelled strongly of cucumbers/pickles. It was pretty refreshing, but I donít know how much of it I could actually drink!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intense cucumber smell and taste. It is pleasant by all means but not something I would want much of.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of cucumber, light fruits, sweet bready malt. Flavor of strong cucumber essence. Itís quite powerful. Hmm at first I was excited to try a cucumber flavored kolsch but this is a bit heavy on the cucumber. You do get used to it as you drink- by the end of the glass there is a nice combination of sweet fruit and bitter vegetable notes. Interesting beer.
