Bottle thanks to johnyb. Poured into a HF tulip.

PourL Completely hazy light orange with a huge three finger head. I didn't even pour slightly heavily. Very soapy, puffy white head. No lacing, and hangs around as a film.

Smell: Normal saison breadyness, with an undeniable cucumber note. I'm amazed. Maybe a light lemon in the back, but that's about it,

Taste: This is a cucumber saison through and through. My best description would be Hennepin with a shot of cucumber water added. Nice breadyness mixed in.

Mouthfeel: Easily the best part of this beer. Really refreshing and light through the sip, and yet incredibly dry. One of the most dry beers I've had in a while.

Overall: This beer lived up to its name. I really enjoyed it, but don't think I'd want it again.

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.
