3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
375, capped and waxed. Pours a murky pale gold with a fizzy, sizzling, surging platinum-blond head. Lots of spotty lace for a minute. Big celery salt nose, not too much like a fresh cucumber, but that nose is there too for sure. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lots of celery salt on the mid palate. Some fresh cucumber too. Crisp light finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
375ml bottle from Supermarket Liquor
Sounded like a shotgun blast when I removed the cap, itís a gusher. What was left is hazy yellow with a huge white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is cheesy, barnyard and cucumber. Flavors of cucumber, yeast, barnyard, grainy and lemon
Not particularly bad, but not good either. Definitely NOT worth $7.99. Whatís the deal with the wax on these bottles!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
375 ml capped and waxed bottle. Opens a minor gusher, with enormous frothy, rapidly collapsing white head, with slight lacing over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is green vegetable, with pickled cucumber notes, hits of spice.....taste is green vegetables, pickles, hints of cereal malts, light herbal notes.....mouth feel light of medium body, no alcohol, foamy carbonation. This is quite a failed experiment. The green and pickle are utterly dominant and not at all pleasant. The appearance is even worse what with the gusher and all. Perhaps cucumber beers donít age well because they become pickle beers. BJCP 5/1/12/3/5

Hazy pale yellow with a creamy white head. Aroma is lemon zest, cucumber, cream cheese. Light bodied, creamy mouthfeel, short finish. Taste is cucumber and cream cheese sandwich. Great beer for high tea.

GABF 2014. Cucumber aroma is prominent. More cucumber in the flavor. Tons of carbonation, some light spice. A very mellow, easy to drink beer that i think would go well with a hot summer afternoon.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a light body with white head and creamy lacing. Aroma is cucumber, cedar, veggies and grass. Mouthfeel is clean and soft with notes of cucumbers, soft pickles, grass, clean malt and light lemon. Nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a hazy straw hue, gentle pale glow with gentle haze, frothy whitish head is a bit bubbly and cakey. Mellow lacing. Aromas show some cucumber, cool and earthy, gentle bready malts, straw and earth. Initial is really cucumber, dill and earth. Cool, earthy, a touch bitter and green. A mellow leafy feel. Touches of earth, bread and straw. Middle is a bit sweet, earthy, dill. Weird beer. Backend and finish is a bit bitter, earthy, lingering veggie and dill feel. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy peach skin hew. Large, pillowy head of whit fizz that pops away after a minute or so. Complex aroma. Earthy, green cucumber, not so much the fresh, refreshing juice -- more the green, slightly vegetal skin. Peppercorns, pear, sea salt. Really like how the veggies work with the underlying saison character. Flavor pretty much replicates the nose, but in a subdued form. A bit sweeter. Carbonation is incredibly high, fizz is a little intense and CO2 bite kind of detracts from the actual beer flavors. A finish of sugar-dusted cucumber slices.

750mL bottle, pours jet black with a small tan / brown head. Aroma is complex, with bourbon, vanilla and cocoa. Flavour is elegant, with boozy bourbon notes, vanilla, and alcoholic finish. Very well-balanced. Surprising quality from the big guys.
