Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, 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.

Christian (11983) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2012
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?

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2012
Tap@BBF12. Wat wazig geel/goud en een kleine witte kop. Geur is gras, citrus en wat hooi. Met wat fantasie kan ik er komkommer uithalen, maar dan moet je dat wel weten. Smaak is wederom gras, citrus en een beetje koolzuur. Prima bier, makkelijk te drinken. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (15389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold with a light, white head. Pale malt nose, light straw. Light sweet flavor with definite cucumber character and some white sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with a bit more cucumber, hay, pale malts. Really good. The cucumber blends seamlessly into this beer. (3.9)

Cask at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear gold with a weak, white foam head. Almost nothing happening in the nose, faint grain and straw only. Nice flavor, lightly sweet with very true cucumber character, some toasty dough. Light bodied with very low carbonation - it’s almost flat. Light sweet finish with some oily cucumber, faint toasty straw, light grass and grain. Condition seems a bit lacking. (3.4)

jackl (6112) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep gold with the tiniest of white heads. The nose is soft grains, vegetable, light fruity sweetness. Simple, clean. The taste is celery, white grape, apricot and a touch of yeast. Green shoots. Beautifully balanced flavors, easy to drink, approachable. Wow, great stuff. This is more than the sum of its parts. Better than expected!

bierkoning (11544) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2012
Cask @ Borefts 2012. Pale blonde. Floral grassy hoparoma with a hint of cucumber. Citric grassy hopbitter flavor. I can find the cucumber but it certainly isn’t dominant.

Slightly hazy blond. White head. Lots of cucumbers indeed! Very surprising beer. Very mild, lightly hopped pale ale.
