COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by a Hendricks gin basil cooler, Coolcumber is made with cucumber, basil and juniper berries. Just like making a great cocktail this beer is dosed carefully with its ingredients to create a one of a kind flavor experience. Golden in color and wonderfully drinkable.

GABF. Gold pour, white head. This really does taste like a really good gin cocktail made with some beer, cucumber, basil and the juniper. Refreshing and really damn fun to drink.

Growler shared by one of the NC guys - thanks, Sam or Anthony! Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head. Simultaneously clean and earthy - notes of cucumbers abound, with pale malts, grass, basil, and juniper berries. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a clean, earthy mouthfeel. Pretty good experiment.

Draft to taster at Wicked Weed. Looks solid; a completely transparent lighter gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells like cucumber and juniper berries. Tastes like it smells, but more balanced. The cucumber shines through on the tongue. Solid on the palate with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Solid beer.

PorterPounder (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Asheville, NC - on tap at Wicked Wee. Hazy medium orange pour, soapy white head. Aroma of fresh potting soil, some cucumbers. Flavor presents some melon fruitiness, a touch of basil spiciness, some cucumber tartness, a back end of earthy topsoil. Crisp mouthfeel . Nice diversion while waiting for our table. .

Suttree (5225) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Yellow, thin white head. Smells grainy, juniper and basil. Flavor is a lot of juniper, basil, pine, and then a good deal of cucumber flavor, especially as it warms. There is also a touch of hop bitterness, as well. Very refreshing, to say the least. When (if) Wicked Weed starts bottling, this would be a good place to start.

JK (4587) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2014
GABF 2014. Lots of cucumber and basil flavor, it does remind me of a cocktail. Mild and refreshing, very drinkable. I went back for more because i liked the cucumber aroma so much.

emacgee (4112) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Cloudy pale blonde pour with one finger of white head. Smell and tastes a lot like water that has cooked crayfish....a lot. Light cucumber flavor with some vegetal bitterness. Not. A. Fan.

Pint on tap. Clear golden with a lasting ring of cream. Nose is cucumber and a bit of toast. Taste is cucumber and seems like dill as well, maybe some wheat cracker on the finish. Light-medium carbonation and body is refreshing.
