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.

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 Iíve ever had. Iíd definitely have it again. Itís 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.

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 @ Tylerís 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 Tylerís Taproom Carrboro. Pours golden with a white head. Doesnít leave much lacing. Definielty smells of cucumbers. Tastes like cucumbers as well though itís 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 (3665) - 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.

Pint At Tylerís 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. Itís ok. Flavor gets real bitter. Aroma best part for me. Flavor kind of harsh.
