Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2013
On tap @ Borefts 2012. This is crystal clear golden in color and it has a small light sidesticking just off-white head. Smells grainy and malt-sweet. Some ripe fruitiness also, but it’s quite grainy. It’s average to soft, prickling on the carbonation and light oily in the texture. Not so bad flavors, it’s mild, yeah. Some butter caramel and floral hints with something reminding of cucumber juice. Strange. The butter comes more forward in the finish and aftertaste. Easy drinking. 28.09.2012

Draft @ Euston Tap, Euston NW1 Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Has a fruity malty spicy aroma. Fruity malty caramel and cucumber flavor. Has a fruity malty cucumber finish.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Half-pint, from the keg menu at Euston Tap where the beer was chilled down a bit too far. Next to clear copper coloured body. Mild impact of floral hops and earthy malts to the nose. Taste of honey sweetness and pale malts. Mid-dry ending. Clean and refreshing down the throat. Just alright (London, 27.11.2012).

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 19, 2012
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a clear and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with grass and spices. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is dry with sweetness and some bitterness. Overall an average beer.

fonefan (35066) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2012

Draught @ 4th Borefts Beer Festival 2012, Brouwerij de Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, nutty, cucumbers, earthy. Flavour is moderate to light light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO. funny but not very balanced ...

Tasted at the 4th BBF @ de Molen. Clean golden pour. Aroma is a bit murky, some swamp and cucumber. Flavor is slightly bitter, somewhat sweet and a bit strange. Green finish.

suprchunk (2245) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Golden, clear. Small white head, some lacing. Hoppy, citrusy aroma with some peppery notes. Sweet flavor, honey-like. Slight peppery floral flavor. Sweet in the back. Nice. There is a definite cucumber flavor in there, but not overwhelming.

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2012
Golden colour, white head. Light flowery aroma, some grass. Quite fresh and light flavour, light bitter, light sweet. Only very light cucumber. Floral finish.
Quite nice and light, could see this work for a summer lunch in a meadow, with some sandwiches. Or with a bit of gin.

Boreft Beer Festival 2012. Hazy golden with a small white head. Grassy aroma with green pepper and pickled cucumber. Dry and hoppy flavour with lots of cucumber. Why?
