Wow, when they say cucumber, they donít just mean notes of cucumber or hints of cucumber. It tastes like liquified and lightly salted cucumber. Iím fine with that, but I prefer crunchy solid cucumbers and not weird beer juice.

Amber pour with a white head. Aromas of cucumbers and plenty of light malts. Taste is malty cucumbers. Very refreshing.

12 oz. bottle from Big Red Liquors in Carmel, IN. Awesome fresh, vegetal cucumber aroma from a fairly clear pale yellow body with a sudsy white head that regenerates with every swirl of the glass. Cucumber juice is the first flavor that hits and is obvious but not overdone in any way. This is followed by a hay-like dryness and barnyard funk similar to a Saison. I would have guessed this to be a Saison if I didnít know it was a Kolsch. The carbonation gives this a creaminess that lasts to the last sip (and keeps that nice white head going strong). The finish is dry with more cucumber and hay. This might be labeled one dimensional in some ways, but that dimension is deilcious! Very refreshing and this is really a treat if you like fresh cucumber flavor. Wish I could get this out here regularly in CA, but Iíll have to settle for picking it up in Indy next time Iím visiting!

Poured from 12oz bottle, clear light yellow with a huge fizzy head, the aroma is of straight cucumber, it almost smells like cooked asparagus as well, the flavor is horrible, tons of cucumber and salt, really couldnít even finish it after one sip, I guess they got what they wanted, but jeez, could have toned it down a little. Iím looking forward to their pickle kolsch next.

On tap a the brass rail. Pours a clear pale yellow. Aroma is slightly citrus. Taste is tea like with a really pronounced bitter finish.

Pours a pale clear straw golden with a huge over-carbonated rocky, fluffly, and slowly diminishing eggshell head. Lots of bubbles present in the body. Nose involves soft grain and prominent cucumber with a touch of noble hop spice. Really sweet flavor, fairly bitter, and quite salty. Fizzy light body, somewhat oily and slick, stinging with salt, finishing twangy and salty. Any typical soft bread kolsch aromas are drowned out by the annoying cucumber. This was a really weird beer. After struggling to get half way through it, I made a chelada out of the rest and that was also not good. As salty as this beer turned out, they should have made a cucumber gose instead. I had to wash my mouth out with an Old Style. Shorts Bloody Beer was a much better experiment than this.

Clear medium yellow body with a fleeting white head. Aroma of fresh cucumbers. The flavor is more cucumbers. I donít really care for cucumbers, but this delivers what is says it is quite well. No real hops come forward here or malts either. Crisp and clean.

This one pours super pale clear yellow. Aroma is straw like clean malts and acutally does smell of cucumbers and honestly i think it does smell of a touch of dill. somewhat full body and again a fresh vegetable flavor mixed in. This was acutally pretty decent but I think the base beer would be absolutely fantastic on a hot day. Glad to try this. Gets stranger and stranger as i get through the glass. Damnit, it tastes like pickles!

Bottle. Iíd been interested in trying to make a cucumber beer for a while, so Iím glad I tried this first and realized I would likely be wasting my time. It looked beautiful in the glass, but the aroma and flavor of cucumber was overwhelming and did not mesh with the beer much at all. Itís a shame, because I can tell that this was a good base beer. The cucumber flavor is vaguely off-putting.
