3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cuke in the aroma. Flavor is faint but there. Dominated by the Belgian style yeast and light crisp malt body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light golden body with white lacing head. Aroma is fresh basil spice, cucumber. Mouth feel is on the lighter side with the cucumber flavor executed perfectly against the basil character. There is just a hint of berry in the finish. An awesome cucumber beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Basil-rific herbal goodness. The cucumber in here keeps things very crisp. A nip of sweetness from the juniper berries adds a bit if pleasant sweetness to the finish. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a fleeting head. Nice summery quencher.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Monks, pours a hazy golden color. This has virtually no cucumber in it, itís mostly just Belgian notes even some squash or pumpkin but wanted a lot more green earth from the cucumbers. Body is light to medium. Bland and not hoppy enough plus the pumpkin thing is not working for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Juniper and basil aromas. Sweet cucumber upfront turning to caramel before the lasting basil finish.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden with a large foamy white head. Stinky earthy nose thatís very soiled with a little cucumber juiciness in there, but also a touch of cheese. Flavor is thankfully better than the aroma with big crisp cucumber tones, bright Belgian pale malt and a little floral fun basil fish after the cucumber bit.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
4-pack of 12 ounce bottles - $8.49 at Bullockís Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Date Bottled: 07.28.16.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, yellow-hued body with an abrupt, white head.
Smell: A background of meager pale malted barley with the declared additions of cucumber, basil leaves and juniper berries, though all in all itís a pretty toned-down, mild aroma.
Taste: A light, cereal sweet touch of barley with a small hint of crisped grain. Cubed cucumber, spicy shredded basil and some fruity, spicy juniper berry flavors, a bit more bolder than was found in the aroma. The flavors mingle and join a more pronounced pop of ground white pepper for the crispish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation, though still has a zing of crispness.
Overall: Iíll come clean and admit I absolutely abhor cucumbers. I loathe their scent, taste and texture (Iím ever irked by sushi joints cramming this scornful filler into their entire sushi roll line-up). However, I somehow decided to give this a ígoí, even springing for a full four-pack. Coolcumber has got a nice summery vibe that isnít just another citrusy wheat, instead giving one a mouthful of horticulture.
