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.

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.

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.

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.

nearbeer (3602) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 15, 2014
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.

OldGrowth (2610) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pint At Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma. Strong on the basil. Less so on the juniper and even less on the cuke. Clean orangy gold color. Ok head and lace. Bitter flavor. Light body creamy smooth mouthfeel. Spice bitter finish. It’s ok. Flavor gets real bitter. Aroma best part for me. Flavor kind of harsh.

emacgee (3963) - 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.

Growler share thanks to beechner224. Very clear, pale yellow, thin white head. Aroma is spicy, sweet, vegetal/cucumber. Light malt, light/sweet cucumber notes, spicy. Refreshing...Not bad for a cucumber beer.
