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.

Cloudy light yellow in the De Proef slim tulip. Really interesting aroma of alfalfa and a whiff of Thai basil. Lovely sudsy mouthfeel and a hint of citrusy bitterness.
Nobody could guess what the flavor was, but as soon as you say "cucumber," the light goes on. It's really quite tasty, just an unexpected flavor. The Brett is quite a nice accompaniment. It has just the right funky weirdness to go with the aromatic vegetable. There is also the typical Saison fruitiness, but less sweet.
Overall this is a delicious, textbook example of a Saison. The flavoring is intriguing and not overdone. From the 375 ml bottle, with a metal cap, thank you, purchased at Grapevine Liquor in Denver.

well, this is indeed what it claims to be. holy cow, cucumber? what a weirdo this is. a saison at its heart, it pours a pale blonde color with a very excited head, bone white, and lasting pretty well. the nose on this indicates saison yeast, i don't get the brett the label says is there, but its dry enough i guess, so theres that. the cucumber nose is insane, not fully appetizing i can't say, the english cucumbers that are always wrapped up in saran wrap, odd smelling, vegetal, not like american pickle cukes. pale malt base is uneventful, but thats fine because all i taste is cucumber, its fresh and strong, and the star of the show. if cucumber ale is a good idea, this is a good one. if its a poor idea, this is irrelevant, but effective. well carbonated and easy drinking enough, but maybe just a tad funny in the belly. quality and interesting stuff from trinity at a fair price for once.

Murky yellow-orange color with LARGE flowing white soapy head. Decent lacing too.
Awesome aroma. Very unique. Peppery, true cucumber aroma.
Earthy, dirty, nice bright sweetness with even field flavors. Unique dryness shines though in a great way. Cucumber flavors are weird and true.
A recommended brew if you're looking for unique. If you're not into funky brews tread lightly. Well done Trinity! Keep em' coming!!!
