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!

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.

On tap @Borefts fest 2012. Pours of lovely, absolutely clear light-yellow color. Aroma is very faint, mostly piny. Taste presents a good mixture of pine, citrus and cucumbers - quite unusual but seems to be an enjoyable combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012 - a beer I went to into with the wrong expectations, came a bit short because of that - I expected a cucumber explosion instead this was balanced, complimentary lighter cucumber and sessionable - probably the first and only beer i will ever complain about in a review about not having enough cucumbers - possibly more effective if you don’t know what you are getting in - clear orange with little in the way of a head - smell is some hops, bitter yeast, light spices and a touch of cucumber skin, grass - taste is not enough cucumbers - it is subtle and you kind of have to pick it out but it is there, bitter, spices, light hops, mellow vegetable, grass, floral - easy sessionable - not bad stuff

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Golden pour with a white head. Not too intense of a cucumber aroma, but definitely there. Some bready malt sweetness, a bit of floral hops, mild grass, and a light fruit character from the hops. The flavor has quite a lot of cucumber. A touch of water, but otherwise quite good. Bready malt base, some floral and fruity hop notes, and a pleasant sweetness.
