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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!!!

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!
