On keg at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Pours clear pale gold with a short white head. Bit fizzy and cold. Nose has a bit of bread, but then goes into a raita dip aroma, loads of minty cucumber. Really interesting and refreshing. Finishes abrupt, but smooth. Great when it is 30°c in the shade.

750ml bottle. Slightly hazy yellow-gold colour, foamy white head and aroma of pickled cucumber, hint of mint, citrus, barnyard. Taste is cucumber, with lemon, spice, herby, mint and some barnyard, yeasty notes. Foamy mouthfeel, light watery bodied, soft carbonation, fairly clean finish with slight lingering pickled cucumber. Very refreshing, great stuff.

Earthy aroma. Bit weird. Not very cucumber but I can taste the mint. The wild yeast comes through but isn’t especially good

Olor ácido como las gueze. Sinceramente no me dice nada, muy floja, sin chicha. Poco sabor. Sólo sirve para empezar.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Pours dusted orange with a subsiding billow of suds. Alluring Belgian inflected aroma big on galangal-like citrus with some earthier and farmyard tones deeper in the mix. Orange-forward citrus on palate; wet dough and soggy biscuit linger, juniper-like spice, mellow heartburn, cucumber distant and well integrated. not getting the mint. Soapy perfumed wafts; more galangal, dill, flowers. Thins in the finish. Belgian shandy. Could maybe use an injection of booze and slickness (or Gordon’s) to hold it together.

Cask at Hanging Bat. Pours hazy Orange with a thin white head. Nose has lots of cucumber and a touch of mint. Taste is very similar. Very refreshing and would be nice with a curry. A bit watery and on its own it lacks a bit of oomph, but leaves the mouth very clean.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is cucumber, mint, spices and faint malt. Flavour is spicy, cucumber, malt. Weird, not bad but I got fed up with it quickly.

Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has spices, very rich and green notes, veggies, sweet cucumber in pickle. Sharp flavour with dry bitterness and peppery finish. Bit thin. Nice and quaffable.

I had this one in Manchester in a sample of about 0,1 ltr. Didn’t take notes but I decided to rate since it is so heavily underrated by most. The beer is a bit watery but in a good way, just like a cucumber. It is super refreshing. The combination of mint and cucumber is an excellent choice. Please make more. :-)
