Thanks @SuwaneeRefugee!

Dull straw cloudy body with a huge white head. Almost too much, but oh well.

They werent kidding when they said Cucumber. Good lord, Cucumber rind just emanates from the glass and bottle. Even more notes of sweet, fresh cucumber dominates. Eathy as well.

The taste is pretty much what it smells like. Prickly bite, and even more prickly carbonation. Very earthy. that cucumber rind and flesh taste somehow work. Theres not a ton of backing flavors (which is my biggest knock). Underlying sweetness helps, and the cucumber taste dominates through the finish.

Its like drinking a cucumber. I like the concept, and how they pulled it off.

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.

Bottle (2012)

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.
