Itís officially summer and that means cucumbers are just starting to come into harvest. Cool cukes are such a nice cooling summer treat, and we decided to make a summer Saison with them. Adding ~24lbs of English cucumbers per barrel, and just enough lemon zest to lend an overall brightness to the beer, this recipe is certain to become an epic summer time favorite.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a huge (gusher) white head. Aroma of cucumber and floral. Taste is cucumber, floral, spice, and lemon. Not sure if vegetables belong in beer.

bottle bought in denver, purple wax, opened after manchester united dismantled spurs, 3-0- that rooney boxing celebration was golden .. . pours a light yellow .. gushed out a light airy foam .. . pretty aggressive liquid .. . cucumber, light spice, champagne, and more cucumber .. . quite nice, a well made novelty .. . . I told my readers to harness the cleaning power of ammonia with the whitening power of bleach.

julesjis (252) - Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Poured from a 12. Appearance is very light and cloudy. Aroma is definitely fresh cucumber, like how your kitchen would smell if you were getting ready to make pickles. Flavor is cucumber (obviously), creamy, pickled garlic and sweet. Yeah, I know that sounds gross, but it is surprisingly light and refreshing.

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.

Sledutah (5661) - Utah, USA - FEB 17, 2015
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!

drjay44 (2866) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2015
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

GothGargoyle (1574) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
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.
