750 ml bottle from ABC Liquors in Oviedo. Pours a golden color with a very slight haze and a medium foamy white head. The aroma is medium with cucumbers, peanuts and more cucumbers, papaya, honey and pepper. The taste, like the aroma, features lots of cucumbers, a tangy lemon bitterness that settles quickly into a grassy finish. Just enough malt to keep the beer actually tasting like a beer. The palate was light and fizzy. A very dry finish invites you back more more swallows. The taste of this beer exceeded my expectations. I found it very refreshing and unique. I have come to expect nothing less from this very creative brewery.

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.
