Sampled draft @ In De Wildeman during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. Hazy orange, little white head. Nose is intense gherkin, weird cucumber, vinegar, pickled vegetables, big funk,… Taste is huge lactic gherkin, cucumber, pickled vegetables, gherkin liquid, vinegar, huge funk,… Light & easy to drink. Wow, this really tastes like gherkin to the max, awesome is like gherkins, so weird, so fun, so yummy, (Thanks for sharing Benzai, Ceasar, tlahav,…. )

jjsint (1385) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Keg at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Orange/yellow, cloudy with reasonable white head and lacing. Smells like a nice pilsner: lemony, grassy, cereal. I can’t taste the mint, but the savoury cucumber cuts the sweetness. I don’t really detect the Saison yeast. A bit wearing in the palette. Verdict: a better tick than a beer.

Blairgus (3327) - California, USA - DEC 4, 2014
4 dec 2014, bottle. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is mint, grass, saison. Med body and moderately fizzy. Spiramint gum, mild cucumber, mild saison yeast. Very interesting and refreshing.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Camden on 11 Oct. Poured a hazy pale golden colour, with a white head. Aroma of yeast, dough and definite cucumber. Pretty dry in the tongue, with bready malt and straw notes. Finish was wheat, grassy hop and some mineral elements. Drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2014
Fra kran på Tap East, Stratford 27 Sep 14. Lys aprikosfarget. Filmskum. Svakt syrlig aroma av bær & frukt. Litt ingefær i smaken. Kjedelig.

AshtonMcCobb (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
75cl bottle. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. A bit hazy. Nose - green notes over citrus. Cucumber becomes evident. Taste - loads of dry green notes. Some citrus and honey in the background Palate - light and fresh and dry all the way through. Overall - won’t score sp well but what a great cooling beer for spicy food.
