Bottle from Kump. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

A - A voluminous white foam settles to a collar, a few wisps on top, and minimal lacing. Hazy pale golden straw body.

S - Big cucumber aroma, with vegetal skin being the dominant contributor. Spicy farmhouse yeast and light grain presence.

T - The taste has more malt sweetness and some nebulous spices as well. Not sure if that's from the yeast or if there are grains of paradise or peppercorns or something. The combination of spices and cucumber gives this a vaguely Indian note. Vegetal cucumber skin finish.

M - Zesty carbonation, medium-light body, dry finish, with perhaps a touch of residual sugar. No perceptible alcohol. Not as tannic as expected for a cucumber beer.

D - Quite enjoyable. Reminds me of thetomG's cucumber saison, and that's a good thing. I crushed the 375ml bottle. Would order this again; might be the best beer I've had from Trinity actually.

Reviewed at Freshcraft in Denver, CO. Full notes taken at time of consumption.

A- Pours about as pale as it gets with a very light yellow, somewhat hazy body from the tap to a tulip. The white cap reaches one finger with a foamy texture and it falls to a small ring. Lacing is rare.

S- Mostly tart and funky Saison yeast in the aroma with a hint of cucumbers toward the back end. Lemon zest, pepper, musty funk, herbs and cherry barnyard.

T- Compared to the aroma, the cucumbers are massively strong taking over the focus of the beer. These cukes are layered on tart lemon zest, dry musty hay and barnyard funk, peppercorns, cherry pit and light fruits.

MF- Body is on the very light end of things with a crisp dry feel. Carbonation fairly high adding some fizz. Finishes lightly bitter and tart.

Its not just my love of cucumbers that makes me a fan of this but the underlying yeast character and funk is key to my enjoyment. The lemon zest adds just a hint but it really pushes the beer further complimenting the main flavors.
