12oz bottle...wow - the cucumber over floral flavor with a surprisingly (and pleasant) bitter finish really wallops you across your beer drinking face. I like stuff that really pushes the boundaries of what beer is...and this one does it in spades. It is time to go off in some radically new directions form the very tired formula of ’more hops = more better’ and I love the assertive veggies/flowers in this one. The innovators will always be harshly criticized by the fundamentalists but new paths need to be blazed and the fear of the new needs to be overcome...well done Magic Hat...well done! snoworsummer (6071) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper.Tastes awesome, like cucumber, spice, and watermelon. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like light malt, wheat, and crisp cucumber. scarletfire65 (1507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle from Summer Variety Pack. Orange red pour. The aroma is wonderful and fresh with sweet flowery cucumber notes. Sweet malt up front, quickly turning to an abrupt, perfectly hopped, cucumbery finish. The hibiscus does indeed add a floral acidity. Surprisingly, doesn’t taste artificial at all. The cucumber flavor reminds me of a mexican style cucumber agua fresca. A great, underrated summer beer. Strangebrewer (1345) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
bottle. Poured clear dark copper with an initially large beige head that settles to a thin layer. Aroma is sweet, citrusy, malty, with a hint of cucumber. Creamy carbonation, a mellow mouthfeel with a tart kinda astringent finish. Flavour of almost burnt malt with some sour orange, and a pepper note. TheBear11D (365) - Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2013
The HiCu pours a mostly cloudy yellow orange with a thick foamy off-white head that lasts a long while and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is very vegetable heavy. The flavor is cucumber and the hibiscus standing out with little surprise. Overall this is a decent beer. I believe they achieved what they were going for but you have to be in the mood for a vegetable beer.

Golden brown pour, small white head.
Cucumber aroma with notes of sweet floral esters. Flavor is more cucumber, with a fresh hopiness of grass and pine. Very smooth with a dry finish. Ratman197 (15368) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2013

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours coppery with dark straw edges and a finger of frothy off-white head. Nose is big cucumber, caramel malt, florals. The cucumber nose is authentic. Tastes refreshing, with a cucumber flavor up front, a crisp hopcitric middle, and some caramel malt in the finish. This one is nice.
