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

Bottle received as an extra in a trade with BAstoutsANDsours thanks!

Appearance: Pours a murky and dull pale straw to light golden with a massive 3 finger dull white crown that shows some retention and lace.

Smell: Pleasant notes of cucumber, faint hints of citrus, a bit of a grassy element, and a small amount of urine tinged hay.

Taste: Nice cucumber note up front, a small amount of saison-ness from the yeast, and the faintest hint of hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin side of medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Not effervescent by any means.

Overall: An interesting beer that I wouldn't buy often. A bit more novelty than anything else but thumbs up to Cigar City for featuring a non-traditional ingredient and getting it to come across clearly in the final product.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Golden cloudy with a greenish tinge, huge torrent of upward fine bubbles rise in the middle of the glass, 2 fingers of yellowish fine bubbled head.

S: Belgian yeasts, light sweetness, light cucumber, dough, phenols, light blue cheese quality.

T: Cucumber, light tartness, lemon water quality, light dough, light phenols, light blue cheese quality.

M: Light body, lots of fine bubbled carbonation, dry crisp light feel.

O: Great light beer to have on a hot day. Definite cucumber but it's light and still present. Unlike Wicked Weed’s imperial cucumber in that there's has a strong and in the face melon quality. Bought in West Palm Beach Whole Foods, drank on Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton the first day of my vacation, July 12, 2014.

Not for everyone. You definitely get the cucumber. The smell reminds me of my mother's kitchen when she was making homemade pickles - a pleasant smell but not something I'm looking for in a beer. Got this on a sampler. Don't think I could do an entire glass.
