Arrives a bright, clear yellow with a small white head. Scottered lace remains.
Smell is well balanced with malt, cucumber and a light wood note.
Taste is exactly the same. A well balanced blend of cucumber, malt, light wood and maybe a touch of citrus.
Fairly smooth, well, but not overly, carbonated. Lightly drying and really refreshing.
I was leery of this one, I mean cucumber? Really? Figured it would be too light or overwhelming. Wrong.

A - Brilliant. Towering, creamy foam explodes out of the glass. Chunky lace and nice retention. Lively carbonation in the glass.

S - Sweet fresh cucumber, mint, touch of lime, dill, fresh jalapeno, and soft lavender.

T - Absolutely awesome. Bright and crisp as it hits your lips. Fresh cucumber, melon sorbet, touch of mint, and lemon zest. Softly floral and herbal through the center with squash blossoms, dill, and just a hint of cilantro. Soft biscuity malt through the finish.

M - Great combination of prickly carbonation and a smooth, medium-full frame.

O - A fantastic saison. A brilliant flavor pairing for the style and extremely well executed.

Poured from tap into saison dupont pils glass at gnarly barley Orlando. Nice copper golden color with little head...
Cucumber is dominant in the aroma with a bit of spicy saison notes..slightly peppery. Taste is identical. Peppery saison with lots of cucumber. It works really well.
Its not as dry as I like a saison but its deff a thirst quencher. Nice brew for this ungodly hot day in Florida.
