Bright golden color gave way to a glowing bright white head that stood tall and strong.

The scent was obviously cucumber but it had a real and natural aroma. Hidden beneath was some Tripel scents like banana, clove and a bit of breadiness.

The taste was obviously cucumber but there was a sweet vegetable flavor. The sweetness resembled watermelons and there was a real earthy flavor.

The feel is immensely crisp and satisfying and makes a good summer beer.

In what may be the biggest surprise I've experienced lately I found this beer to be quite good despite my aversion to cucumbers.

Have had on tap as well, but this review is for the bottle.

A- Golden color darker than what I would expect for a cucumber flavored saison.

S- My favorite part of this beer. Such strong cucumber smell that even before tasting it is refreshing

T- Not what I was expecting. Cold the cucumber was a little subdued, warmed a little it was fantastic with just a hint of herbs, warmer it was too strong and not refreshing.

M- too carbonated to appreciate the subtleness of a cucumber which is why I think they pump so much into it.

O- great on a hot summer day, but needs to be at the perfect temp to enjoy otherwise it can get to taste almost medicinal

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.
