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.

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.

tap, named for a line in Chappelle's Show.

Pours a light hazy gold with a white lacing for a head.

Smells of fresh cucumbers and light grassy malts.

Flavor is of fresh vegetal cucumbers and light grassy malts with a tang of citrus.

Medium to light body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

A good flavorful ale, interesting idea, and very refreshing. This will probably be a very divisive beer, I could see a lot of people really being turned off by it. I personally quite enjoy it and will look forward to trying it again.

fresh sample from the brewpub in Meadville, PA Fall 2012
A - was in a tasting glass, but appeared cloudy
S - ever smell a cucumber? thats the overwhelming scent that masks everything else
T - not very desirable. one moouthful left me tasting this horrible taste that was only mildly masked by a few 4 Seasons IPA and a tasty stout
M - couldn't get over the aweful taste in my mouth that lingers for a long time
O - If you want to taste cucumbers for an entire day, this may be for you. Not me. Won't ever try a cucumber beer ever again. Was very dissapointed since i actually love cucumbers and pickles!!!
