Thanks to my bro, cloeren13, for sharing this with me. Poured poolside and enjoyed thoroughly

Poured a hazy orange with a finger of bright white fizzy head.

The aroma is spot on. An explosion of cucumbers, drizzled in honey. With a little but of lime juice and a touch of salt.

The taste really opened up once it warms up. Lightly salted cucumbers, touch of honey and a little bit of lime juice. Extremely refreshing!

Light in body with an ample amount of carbonation. Very easy drinking and leaves a tasty cucumber aftertaste.

Overall, this beer was delicious. The cucumber aspect was spot on. I thought that it was a little different than most Saisons but in a good way, very original. Worth seeking out for sure.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is hazy golden color with a two finger fluffy white head.
Aroma is spices, banana, yeast, and cucumber.
Flavor is banana, cucumber, bitterness throughout. Not complex but good.
Mouthfeel is medium to thin, carbonation is big and crisp.
Extremely refreshing beer but the flavors aren't big or complex.
Not a bad summer beer but I wouldn't seek it out.
I'm thankful I got to try this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange body. Big white head. Lots of lacing. Thick collar and great retention.

Smell - Lots of cucumber. Almost pickly. A bit of esters and some grain.

Taste - Still lots of cucumber. Much more grainy and some slightly sweet pale malt. Light cucumber is the lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Very drinkable. Medium light body.

Overall - It's refreshing and the cucumber flavor is pretty much all there is here. If that's your thing, it's good. I rather enjoy it.
