Bottle to nonic

A - Pale gold. Pretty white head, thick and rich and puffy and textured.

S - Super fresh cucumber.

T - Super fresh cucumber with some of that familiar saison spice-ish thing peeking out from underneath to give it just a bit of complexity - not too much but a little. The cucumber even seems to have a bit of a bitter edge from the peel, which adds a nice element.

O - This beer delivered exactly like I hoped and expected. Cucumber! That pretty much sums it up. I love cucumber and I love saisons and this is the perfect marriage. It's so well balanced and well crafted. It's so refreshing. I thought it might be gimmicky and that there was a chance it would be weird and bad, but it's really well done. I'd need for there to be more complexity to score it higher, but as a summertime refresher, it does a great job being very pleasant in its simplicity.

A: Golden cloudy with a greenish tinge, huge torrent of upward fine bubbles rise in the middle of the glass, 2 fingers of yellowish fine bubbled head.

S: Belgian yeasts, light sweetness, light cucumber, dough, phenols, light blue cheese quality.

T: Cucumber, light tartness, lemon water quality, light dough, light phenols, light blue cheese quality.

M: Light body, lots of fine bubbled carbonation, dry crisp light feel.

O: Great light beer to have on a hot day. Definite cucumber but it's light and still present. Unlike Wicked Weed’s imperial cucumber in that there's has a strong and in the face melon quality. Bought in West Palm Beach Whole Foods, drank on Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton the first day of my vacation, July 12, 2014.

Not for everyone. You definitely get the cucumber. The smell reminds me of my mother's kitchen when she was making homemade pickles - a pleasant smell but not something I'm looking for in a beer. Got this on a sampler. Don't think I could do an entire glass.

Serving type: on-tap

Ohhhh God.smells like hippy feet and a salad from a cheap hotel buffet. Looks like Miller lite. Tastes like cucumber, but in a way that makes me hope I never encounter them again. I don't know what they were thinking when they brewed this but I won't hold it against them.
