750ml bottle dated 5/23/2013, given to me as an extra by Brandon- thanks! Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 1/20/2014.

App- Clear pale yellow-straw body, lots and lots and lots of white head with great retention and lacing. Looks like a well-carbonated saison, appealing.

Smell- cucumber, cucumber, cucumber. Really, more of pickles than anything as it is cucumber with spicy pepperiness and a dash of salt. Interesting to smell over and over again.

Flavour- pickled cucumbers, faint pepperiness, not vegetal at all. No yeast flavours.

Mouthfeel- solid and appropriately thin body, good carbonation that does not fill up the palate too much. Aftertaste is a bit of lemon (?) zestiness that doesn't hang around for long.

Overall- cool beer, cool concept. However follows more of the pickled route than the fresh cucumber route. Most likely due to the age on this one as it was given to me. Will have to try this one again fresh, but regardless this is definitely a vegetable beer without much in way of saison qualities.
