Not terribly saison-y, but tons and tons of cucumber for sure.

Date: 8/31/14
Location: DeCicco's Pelham
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Lightly golden to orange in color. Slightly beige off white head. Pours with a large white head with fantastic retention. Little cling.
Aroma: Well, it's not often that I get to describe a beer as a "cucumber bomb" but that's exactly what it is. Straight, unadulterated, cucumber. No other smells or aromas.
Taste: The taste is not quite as cucumber flavored as the aroma lets on but it's not far off either. Cucumber is the flavor, working hard to find something else I get some slightly sugared pale malts. I was looking for some of the yeast elements considering its a saison but just didn't get any hits. The finish is... cucumber.
Mouthfeel: The beer is medium bodied medium high carbonation. It feels heavier because I think my tongue is expecting to be chewing cucumber. I don't know what else to say.
