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.

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.

Une bombe de rafraichissement qui voit le comcombre dominer outrageusement tous les éléments qui pourraient tenter de percer. Après plusieurs grandes gorgées, le basilic pointe et une résine s’installe sur la langue. Les houblons se manifeste pas tant en aromatique que dans la structure céréalière. Buvabilité jardinière.

On tap at brewery. Pours clear golden color. Smells of straight cucumber and herbs. Taste is light, refreshing, cucumber, herbs, tart berries, really good. You could drink it all day.

Tap @ Tyler’s Carboro - I had this one a couple days ago and really enjoyed the refreshing vegetal, cucumber notes in the beer. Somehow this one works. It reminds me of a refreshing summer salad in alcoholic form.

The definite surprise of my visit. Not a big fan on vegetable beers but this was very nice. Light and refreshing. Took a growler home.

On tap at the brewery, this pours a translucent straw into the glass with a nice foam head that leaves moderate suds lacing. The aroma leans toward actual cucumber and basil notes. These notes are very dominant in the flavor, with the basil accentuating the cucumber and light juniper notes very well. Zesty and light-bodied, this is extremely drinkable, and honestly, one of the most interesting vegetable/herb offerings I’ve ever had. I’d definitely have it again. It’s interesting, complex and quenches thirst wonderfully on a summer night. Great brew!

Presented with a sliced cucumber. Extremely light and refreshing. Great choice for a nice summer day.

Really refreshing beer. On a hot day this would be a great go to beer. Easy drinking and delicious.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head. Aroma is big on the vegetal cucumber with hints of spicy pine and earth, malty backbone. Taste is more towards the malt and the cucumber, sweet and crisp, like drinking a salad. No sign of the booze, easy and refreshing, nicely done. Apparently down to 4.9% abv now, according to the menu.
