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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a light golden body with white lacing. Aroma is fresh cucumber, leaf and basil. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with the cucumber flavor executed perfectly against the basil character. An awesome cucumber beer.

GABF 2014. Lots of cucumber and basil flavor, it does remind me of a cocktail. Mild and refreshing, very drinkable. I went back for more because i liked the cucumber aroma so much.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
