Ohhhh God.smells like hippy feet and a salad from a cheap hotel buffet. Looks like Miller lite. Tastes like cucumber, but in a way that makes me hope I never encounter them again. I don't know what they were thinking when they brewed this but I won't hold it against them.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a clear light golden color with maybe a touch of cucumber. That’s unfortunately there’s the only place with just a touch of cucumber. The nose smells like cucumber juice. It tastes like cucumber water. Light body; no real beer character. It says saison, but I don’t get any sort of pilsner or bready malt, nor is there anything indicating saison yeast. Just cucumber. It doesn’t taste bad, but it’s not beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Everyone has opinions, like everyone has an asshole - here is mine. Appearance is what a saison should be, nothing exceptional. Smell is muted but just like the label says - cucumber salad. I bought this with hopes that it would be a funky &/or spicy traditional saison with a crispness of cucumber green. Other way around, mostly cucumber while neglecting the fact that it's a saison.

If your looking for a quality saison, look elsewhere. This is outside of the box thinking and experimental brewing, which I do applaud at times. But I don't think this one should have ever left the tasting room. I'd take their Guava Grove or Table Saison over this any day of the week. If your looking for liquid salad, have fun but making a cucumber/lettuce/vodka blend will give you the same effect without spending $12 for 750ml. Hyped up, yes. Worth investing in, no.
