I tried this at a beer show in Highlands Ranch Colorado. Amongst the many beers I tried, I really liked this one. Not perhaps because of the overall goodness but because of it's uniqueness. Very crisp and aromatic. If you're hesitant about a beer with cucumber, do not fear. It's worth a try. It's actually rather light feeling. It also is brewed with Grains of Paradise, which I've started seeing in a lot of summer brewed beers which gives it kind of a peppery taste and aroma along side the crisp and almost mild fruitiness of the beer (Let's not forget that cucumber is technically a savory fruit, a berry in fact) I'd serve it with salad or light fleshed meat like chicken or perhaps grilled pork or white fleshed fish especially if it's spiced with pepper, coriander or grains of paradise. It's pretty good so if you have an opportunity, at least get a sample. It's a unique beer that is definitely worth a few minutes of your time. Besides, it's craft beer, it's going to catch your attention anyway!

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!!!

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.

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.
