Confusing and interesting... At first sip the cucumber hits you much harder than anything else. After a few sips, however, those saison spices and dryness begin to blend in a little bit better... At first sip I wasn't sure that I wanted to drink 22 oz of it alone, but by the time I got to the bottom of that bomber, I admittedly wanted a little bit more. Overall, I wish it was a little more "saison-y", and a bit less "cucumber-y", but c'est la vie. I wouldn't run out to stockpile this beer (especially if you can get CCB's Guava Grove Saison), but I certainly wouldn't turn down another glass.

Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of cucumbers, water and a little bit of biscuit malt. This smells like I think it would if you ran cucumbers through a Jack LaLanne Power Juicer. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of cucumber, as well as some biscuit malt, Belgian yeast, pepper and a hint of lemon and orange. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. My only complaint is that I wish the beer was green.

Thanks for opening this with me, VaTechHopHead!
Clear golden with a small near-white cap. Leaves the glass dotted with moderately-sized bubbles. Very little retnention. Appropriate enough.
Distinct aroma of cucumber and little else. There's perhaps an earthy quality to the aroma that actual cucumbers don't have, but the dominant aroma overall is very clearly cucumber.
The flavor, too, is, not surprisingly, very cucumber forward, along with a bit of earth and some bitterness. Very simple and straightforward, while obviously very unique as well. Very drinkable. I enjoy it, but it's simply not a very complex saison.
Thin bodied with moderate-high carbonation.
A wonderful cucumber drink, but an uninteresting saison.
