Poured into a Dogfish signature snifter. Label says 23MAY2013

A- Pours a light golden color with a full inch of off-white head that retains quite well before slowly relinquishing to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass.

S- Incredibly refreshing cucumber aroma that's more natural and effective with the saison yeast than expected.

T- The cucumber comes through just as strong in the flavor and now the intense cucumber rind flavor is more present. A bit tangy with barely any alcohol detected.

M- Slightly dry and tart with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Certainly unique and very enjoyable in the aroma, but the beer as a whole is not exactly what I look for in a Saison, vegetable beer or any other style.

Confusing and interesting... At first sip the cucumber hits you much harder than anything else. After a few sips, however, those saison spices and dryness begin to blend in a little bit better... At first sip I wasn't sure that I wanted to drink 22 oz of it alone, but by the time I got to the bottom of that bomber, I admittedly wanted a little bit more. Overall, I wish it was a little more "saison-y", and a bit less "cucumber-y", but c'est la vie. I wouldn't run out to stockpile this beer (especially if you can get CCB's Guava Grove Saison), but I certainly wouldn't turn down another glass.
