It's tough to review this beer. I like cucumbers. And this brew does the cucumber justice. It's intensely earthy with strong cucumber flavor and aroma (you know, that light refreshing watery cucumber jawn). However, I'm not certain how much I enjoy cucumbers in my beer, the jury's still out on this one.
A: Hazed tawny gold, frothy white head.
S: Cucumbers and earth. Like working on the cuke farm after a summer shower.
T: CUCUMBERS AND EARTH! Seriously, it's all there. Got summa dat saison spicing going on.
M: MC Fizz fizzle
O: See above. I'm glad I had this, and I might be able to slam this on a hot day, it's so cucumbery and refreshing, but it's also a cucumber beer, so again, the jury remains out. I will say I'd like to have another to further feel it out.

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.

3.5/5 rDev -5.1%

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.
Serving type: on-tap
