Poured from a bomber into an enlarged snifter.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy amber and leaves a full, multi-fingered head which fades quickly to a finger and then lingers for a while.

Smell: Cucumbers right upfront, slight hay funk, must, light floral notes, light cloves and banana. The big, refreshing cucumber takes the lead and is quite notable.

Taste: Cucumber, slight hay/grassy funk, malts, green peppers, cloves, banana. Quite smooth, balanced flavor.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a spritzy, carbonated, medium feel to it. Finishes smooth and crisp.

Overall: I was impressed with this one, besides the cucumber this is a nice, refreshing, light saison. The cucumber makes it interesting for me, and I enjoy cucumber, so I like that aspect to it. Would definitely drink again.

A straightforward saison base with an aroma and flavor of light cucumber. The base beer itself is light and simple with some light peppery saison yeast character. Foamy carbonation with good head retention lends a creamy texture. No obvious flaws. The cucumber is unique, refreshing and easy drinking. I think it pairs well with spicy dishes but overall the beer isn't very interesting.
