750 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy gold with a huge bubbly white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is cucumbers with some funky yeast.

The flavor is old tropical fruit with some cucumber and some sweet bready malts. A little too vegetal. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with creamy carbonation.

Overall, it's OK for a cucumber beer. I was excited about the brett, but it didn't help. For cucumber beer, I actually liked Twisted Pine's better surprisingly.

This beer poured a bit hazy, but still more on the clear golden side. Not much of a head here. Hard swirl cannot bring it back once it's gone.

Aroma is fairly weak. Some off Belgian spice and just a faint hint of cucumber. I've had cucumber drinks before living in India and those were quite a bit more pleasant smelling. Of course, they weren't beer

Flavor is like a light saison or tripel. Can't quite distinguish this as the cucumber comes through. Yet it's more of the skin of the cuke it seems. I dunno, just has a little "green" in it. Not as light. Beyond that, and a little bit of breadiness, there's not much to it.

Went well with a Southwest Club Sammich at Hops/Pie

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.
