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.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy gold with white head. Nose was hops, cucumber, basil, berry. Tasted hoppy and cucumbery, but in my opinion the basil was a bit strong in this. I didn’t get much juniper, but I think mint would have better served this beer than basil (rathbone).

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of cucumber, herbs, light peppery spice and a hint of pine. Similar taste, fruity, refreshing cucumber flavor with a nice balance of adjuncts. Light, crisp and easy to drink overall.

Bottle. Strong basil aroma with notes of cucumber and gin-like juniper berries. Pours clear golden colored with half a finger of white head that has good retention and a little bit of lacing. Starts with a good amount of basil flavor with a touch of floral as well. Finishes smooth and refreshing with cucumber flavors to start before the juniper berries give a slight gin-esque ending. Interesting and bright, good for a hot summer day.

12oz bottled 7/28/16. After pouring, smelling and tasting, I went to rate and read the discription. If Hendricks was the inspiration, then they really came close to the mark. Floral, herbal, bright and fresh all going on here. The juniper, basil and cucumber are all there...subtle and intertwined with a simple well done golden that carries the adjuncts along. Enjoyable and if price point was lower and in a multi pack, I would repeat.

This is definitely is the best cucumber I have ever had. Flavor is very much like Hendricks gin. Herbal cucumber sweet. If you are a gin lover, you probably will like this mellow summer sipper. Lots of similar nose. NICE!

unclefrito62 (72) - Stow, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Growler from the brewery. Smell of pine. The basil in this beer overpowers this beer. Golden yellow in color. Taste of basil, not to much cucumber. Smooth on palate. Overall this beer is drinkable

Cybercat (5050) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Taps wan golden with a good porcelain head. Aroma presents floral, vegetable, malty and fruity notes, quite distinctive. Flavor delivers floral, cucumber, malty, fruity and subtle woody hop tones. Mouthfeel has firm body and good fizz. Cool as a cucumber!

Maybe the best cucumber beer I’ve had but I’m not sure that is saying much. Drinkable.

weihenweizen (3083) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2016
On tap at Pizza Peel. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is fresh mint/cucumber, medium body, little lacing. Taste is fresh cucumber and some mint. Not my thing.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 Pours a hazy yellow colour, with a little white head and a little white lacing. Smells of cucumber and basil...I like it. Tastes of cucumber, spices, a little bitter hops, an almost nutty finish. I really like this beer. Really refreshing not over kill on the flavors.
