3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first two raters called it, so what more can I say? This golden-hued beer is a doughy but refreshing spicy cucumber quaff with notes of basil and maybe a hint of juniper. Unique and able to wet your whistle, even with its dry finish.

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 the brewpub. Pours light yellow, and served with a slice of cucumber. The aroma is strong cucumber, gin, and basil, as advertised. Sweet, with a light bitterness. Light body, crisp, and refreshing. Overall, this is a very interesting combination, that results in a unique session beer.

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!

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

Draft at Tyler’s Taproom Carrboro. Pours golden with a white head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Definielty smells of cucumbers. Tastes like cucumbers as well though it’s a bit more subdued than I was expecting. Seems like a. Good summer or early evening beer.
