2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Lost Abbey. Golden-yellow in color with a one-finger white head. The aroma has cucumber, carrot, and greens. This is weird. Cucumber and carrot. The flavor is a lot like a garden salad. Cucumber dominates along with carrot and herbs. Some salad greens, maybe romaine lettuce. Not much else. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Oddly refreshing actually. Unique at least.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at GABF. This was an odd beer. Pours a nice looking gold with a fluffy head, fine bubbles. Nose is peculiar. Odd mix of floral, licorice & mint with a malty backbone. On tasting, it’s more of this mishmash. Earthy and dry, but the spices really clash with one another. Not my bag.

Tasted at Lost Abbey on tap. Clear golden in color with a thin white head. Stick your nose in this beer and you feel like you are at the beach on a windy day. Pronounced beach wood aromas flow. Smells more like Atlantic wood to me. Light bodied brew but flavors were quite complex that melded well together. Flavors were of honey, mint, earthiness, and grass. The finish is not sweet and some what dry. Very tasty unique beer.

At lost abbey. Pale gold pour. Aroma is cucumber salad which is insane. Taste is crisp and clean and heavily cucumber with slight vinegar to it. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

On tap at Avery - poured a golden yellow with a minimal head. Nose is like a vegetable garden. Taste of yeasts, cabbage, lemongrass. cucumber and wood. Slightly drying finish. A bit strange, but still okay..
