look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy yellow-gold. Head starts off massive and clumpy white. Thick sheets of lacing stick to and coat the glass. Decent head retention leaves a small clumpy cap with a dense bubble structure.

Smell: Straight up cucumber. Vegetal and fresh. Hops are lightly tropical with some mango, tangerine, and some vague stone fruit. A touch of spicy hop and lemon zest care of the Sorachi Ace. Cucumber skin. A touch of leafy vegetable. A vague hint of yeast with a mildly damp element. So much cucumber with some solidblemon flesh and zest undertones.

Taste: A touch raw honey wirhna solid punch of lemongrass and lemon zest. Vague hop spiciness coupled with some mild tropical notes. Some mango, tangerine, and pineapple. Cucumber for days. Flesh and fresh peeled cucumber skin. A ton of leafy vegetable. Fresh juicy cumber. Malts are nice and light with a slight bready element. Some pale malt sweetness. So much vegetable. Some yeasty esters and a slight damp element.

Mouthfeel: Medium leaning to light body with a moderate carbonation. Clean finish with a slightly creamy initial sip.

Overall: As promised.

One of the more unique things I've encountered. Has more cucumber flavor than an actual cucumber. Works well and really is refreshing.

Consumed 5/20/14

Appearance: Hazy golden orange/tangerine - pours with a giant, fluffy white head keeps a solid cap, leaves some serious webs of lacing

Smell: Massive cucumber aroma - more of a potent cucumber aroma than sniffing an actual cucumber (which definitely makes no sense) - concentrated cucumber juice - some yeasty aromas and some light saison funk - some light citrus and some pale malts in the back - some light bread - the aroma is really dominated by the hyper cucumber

Taste: Cucumbers with some dill and some grain - cucumber skin, cucumber flesh - some saison funk, with some earthy and yeasty flavors - some pale grains and light bread - yup, cucumber sandwiches - light spiciness from the yeast, finishes clean and refreshing

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium, nicely carbonated, smooth, dry, refreshing finish

Overall: Cucumber sandwiches! Tea and crumpets! Quite!

The sheer quantity of cucumber in this beer deserves some kind of award, as it barely makes sense. If you don't like cucumber, you are going to hate this beer. Fortunately, I do. The saison base is either very mild or just completely dominated by the cucumbers. Regardless, it's worth a try.
