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.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 750 from knightly williamsburg. Aroma is dandelion greens, wet foliage and fresh surf. Appearance is murky blonde with heavy carb, healthy head and nice legs. Flavor is salty then sweet vegetation, strong cucumber with light acidity. Buried yeast with just hints of flashing funk. cucumber becoming nearly gag worthy about half way through the bottle. cloying and foul.

Great taste; very light and refreshing. The cucumber smell is much more intense than the flavor.

Gherkins arent just for jerkin. Theyre for drinkin. Wow. More than 900 reviews later, and Im still as weird and immature as I was with my first rating. Oh well. What could be more satisfying than combining a staple summer beer with a gourd renowned for its thirst-quenching abilities. Not much, thats what. Sometimes, beers like this take on a strange vegetable aroma and taste thats unpleasant. Somehow, Cucumber Saison manages to smell and taste completely like a cucumber without being the least bit offensive. There are the fruity, spicy, and earthy elements - like in many Saisons - and they blend wonderfully with the cucumber. And did I mention refreshing?

Bottle. A- Cucumbers, dirt. A- Light orange color, slightly hazy liquid, white head. T- Cucumbers, slightly musty. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish. O- This seems like one of those beers you either love or hate. I was no doubt on the lover side of things. Is that disturbing since its a cucumber beer? Or am I just been perverted now. I digress. Smells and tastes just like a cucumber. Very refreshing. Not out of this world but Id love to have a few more of these for the dog days of summer....instead of drinking it on a 20 degree night in November like I just did.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Clear golden body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of gin, cucumber and mint. Refreshing flavour of cucumber, tonic water and cereal. Thin to medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Light fizz. Really good, but quite pricey at 3.25 for a third pint.

Keg at Bat. Clear golden. Nose is quite bad, earthy, grass. Tastes really cucumber, some herbs, sweetish fruits, grass. Way better than smell.

Awesome trade as always with Mr.Simonelli. Thanks Mike. Pours a golden colour, lots if carbonation, decent white head that recedes to a thin film, no lacing. Nose is dominantly cucumber, followed by fruit, very very light sweet malt. Tastes sweet, cucumber is in the forefront, giving way to a touch of hop and a little tropical fruit, there is a jolly rancher essence too. Been waiting to try this for awhile, and I really do like this strange brew.

Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2015 - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has pale malt, cucumbers and veggie fleshiness. It has a medium body with sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with cucumber, spice, mild tart6ness and some dirty earth. Very nice.
