review taken from notes


Pours a light golden color with a chill/protein haze and a white soapy head. The aroma is big on cucumbers and does remind me of pickles. The taste, is fresh cucumber, not too far from some cucumber mint tea concoctions I have had in the past, however, this does not have mint. The wheat and other beer elements add up to me just tasting pickles when I drink it. It tastes like pickles and some malts. The mouthfeel is rather light bodied and well carbonated. Overall, the name of the beer says it all with this one, but it was cool to try.

This is a remarkable beer!
The nose is heavy cucumber with a hint of road tar.
Initially there is a strong taste of tea joined by cucumber.
There are yeasty , sour notes.
These flavors fade into a crisp citrus finish.
I've never tasted anything like this!

Thanks TommyGuz for hooking me up with a 1-liter of this. Poured into a matching voodoo snifter, the brew appears a orange to golden copper color with skimpy white head that fades back fast.

The smell is initially grassy moreso than cucumber influenced. However once you hone in on the cucumber, you pretty much cannot smell anything else in the brew. As it warms, there is a strange "coolness" about the nose.

The taste is huge of cucumber and grass. A slight earthen and green bell pepper flavoring. Faint to slight wheaty grain and brine flavors with a lasting grass/cucumber aftertaste.

This is a light bodied brew with a light level of carbonation. Ive had only a handful of cucumber beers and this one sure is unique and grassy really driving home that cucumber flavor/freshness. It is worth checking out just for the "yup, had dat factor" but im not sure how much of this id want to drink.
