I love flat 12, but a salty cucumber beer is a bad idea no matter who makes it. After 3 sips this was a drain poor. Avoid for the love of God. Everything else by Flat 12 is stellar, but most vegetables just don't belong in beer. The smell alone will make you want to vomit.

Wow, another reviewer nailed it by the phrase drain pour. I just couldn't make it through even 6oz of this. I really enjoy the kolsch style and I enjoy other flat 12 offerings. I really wanted too since I spent 11 bucks on a six pack but after two attempts I had to throw in the towel. I'd rather have a six pack of miller 64. Stick with any other offerings by flat 12 but stay away from this. If anyone wants to try it I have 4 more bottles left.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A-Bright clear yellow with some green highlights. Head is thin and white.

S- Cucumber, some sweetness, with a slight dry straw malt aroma.

T- Straw malt with a dry bitter hop. Cucumber is very prominent.

M- Light. Fizzy carbonation,. Finish is long and bitter and the cucumber is engrained into the palate.

O- Kind of gross. Maybe this would pair well with food, but as a drinking beer, it isn’t good. I think the point of these beers is to bring two things that are refreshing, in their own sense, together, to make ultimate refreshment. But I think it is a complete failure. It destroys that aspect for both parties, and leaves me disgusted.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - Beautiful gold color and very clear

S - Dominated by cucumber. No malt or hops detected.

T & M - Nice, light-bodied mouthfeel, but the taste is dominated by cucumber (even more so than the smell). I felt like I was eating a cucumber not drinking a beer.

O - Interesting beer, but they overdid it with the cucumber. I can't imagine drinking more than one of these at a time. If they toned down the cucumber a bit, I think that this would be a very nice summer beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A-Clear as day light yellow, nicely carbonated, three finger fluffy head.

S-Cucumber. Straw/wheat but mainly just cucumbers.

T-An odd mix of cucumber and wheat. They do not mesh together at all. The cucumber is this harsh salty taste.

M-Light and watery with little carbonation.

O- A bad craft beer.
