The humble gherkin. Usually we encounter this unassuming green fruit pickled or sliced and flung atop a salad. But the cucumber has so much more to offer us. It is a remarkably refreshing gourd with the power to cool a dry tongue and when just two sliced wheels are placed atop the eyes of a lounging lass in a stock photo ad for a spa the mythical cucumber has the magical ability to justify obscene spa service fees. Truly an amazing botanical gift to the world. We chose to employ the cucumber in a low gravity Saison to create a refreshing seasonal ale redolent with notes of honey, tropical fruit, lemon bitterness, and of course cucumbers. Brewed as a survival tool for the Florida Summer this cucumber creation features Citra and Sorachi Ace hops. So put some cucumber wheels on your eyes, lean back, relax and enjoy. Ahhhhhhh.

Clear golden pour with a big white head that fades quickly. Aroma is a lot of cucumber and herbal. Taste is big on the cucumber along with some lemon and a little spice. Tart and dry. Interesting.

Bottle... Poured golden with a grayish head. Nose had earthy, herbal, cucumber-esq tones. Flavor wise, so much fresh cucumber flavor with hints that reminded myself I was still drinking beer. So refreshing. This beer is a foodies dream. Ripe vegetable flavors and yeast characters.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from Decanted. Upon a careful pour, a cloudy golden orange body emerges with a sizable white head on top that retains well. Sour yeast notes hit the nose right away with a subtle vegetable note hiding in the back. Amazing how the cucumber really shines through in the flavor. More tastes include grass, soapy yeast, pepper, and citrus. Lively carbonation and light body. Refreshing, yet complex, just like a Saison should be. Nice work.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle from RBC a few days ago. Notes say to enjoy this fresh, so I did. I can see how the cucumber flavor might "pickle," if you dont. Aroma is straight up cucumber (without the skin) and light-typical saison. Flavor gets more of the cucumber skin and carries some light bitterness of the vegetable on the back end of the palate. Very unique and great offering. You have to try it to believe it.

Ktwse (4466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2012
Pours cloudy golden with medium white head. Aroma is, well, cucumber. Also yeast, wheat and a hint of coriander. Taste is slightly bittersweet at first before turning into a and pleasantly bitter finish. The cucumber is strongly present. Body is medium and quite ceeamt with modest carbonation.

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2012
The aroma is very cucumbery with a touch of pickles, citrus, and honey. The appearance is light honey with a small head. The taste is exactly like the aroma. The palate is thin and refreshing. Overall its a very unique beer with a lot of character but Im still trying to figure it out.
