4.2/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy, copper/orange color. Head was one finger and white. Bubbles from carbonation lasted through out. Head retention and lacing were disappointing, fading way too fast.

Smell is of fresh cucumber and a cucumber flavored mexican candy that I love. The beer also has the aromas of a classic saison, straw malts/peppery farmhouse yeast. Hops aren't present and neither is alcohol.

Taste is of pickled sweet cucumber, Belgium peppery yeast, and light crisp pale malts. Sweetness and light spice dominate flavors, hops are undetectable. At 6.5% abv, alcohol was nicely hidden, making this beer highly drinkable

Mouthfeel is light on the palate and effervescent, . Body is that of a lager or kolsch. Yeast leaves an astringent aftertaste. Wish head retention was there longer to add more depth to the beer.

Overall this was a very unique, exceptionally flavorful ale. Great for a hot summer day out on the patio. Head retention was only drawback to the beer. Also at 15 bucks per bomber, it is on the pricier side. That being said I would gladly fork over that much again and hoping that Trinity will make this one a permanent seasonal.

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!!!

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and cucumber aromas. Taste is much the same with cucumber and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting set of aromas and flavors.
