3.63/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Bottle opens with an audible pop. Beer itself is mostly clear light amber in color. Unsurprisingly, this one forms a large, very carbonated, white head. Good retention, moderate lacing.

S: aroma is primarily Saison-like. I mention this because I was expecting the cucumber to dominate. It's there, but I certain,y get a lot more of the yeasty phenols and spice with a "green" cucumber aroma more in the background.

T: Taste is similar. Lightly sweet blend of lemon-lime and cucumber. The some yeast, a slight tartness, and a bit of spice. Finish is a touch astringent with a cucumber skin bitterness. Again, the cucumber is noticeable. Unmistakable even, but it doesn't (thankfully) overpower the beer itself.

M: on the lighter side of medium. Very aggressive carbonation. Light sweetness. Fairly crisp. Mild astringency.

O: I found this to be a fairly nice beer. I was rather curious about it when I learned of it and sought on out, especially for my wife whom likes both Samson's and cucumbers, but ended up hating this beer. I on the other hand, enjoyed the combination of the cucumber along with the lemon tartness and yeasty spice giving this one a "salad in a glass" feel to it while still retaining its beeriness.

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.
