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.

Pours a very light golden, with excellent white foam and thick, Swiss-cheese-like lace.

Nose is light, with a hint of peppery spice somehow. The cucumber is subtle so far.

Taste is a nice balance of herbal cucumber cool and the grainy malts of a typical kolsch. Definitely unusual, but easily a pleasant, enjoyable session brew that I'd have no problem with revisiting. Like.

I’ve seen fruit/vegetable beers, but never would have dreamed cucumber would make it into a bottle; but I really like this brewery (even though it may be hometown bias), so I’m still hopeful for this one.

A: Body is crystal-clear, pale yellow with an enormous amount of fizz – there are bubbles everywhere. The bright white head that appears is thin and fizzy, but remains at a half-inch for the duration, supported by the rising carbonation.

S: A mellow, inviting cucumber aroma makes up the majority of the nose; smells like you’re walking into a sandwich shop. Totally light in character, what’s left is a clean lager scent of white bread and soft grain husk and some floral hops, which add notes of strawberry and mint. Summer in a glass.

T: Focusing on mild cucumber and fruity hop tones, this palate is as crisp and refreshing as a lightly-dressed salad. Berry tastes, juicy and light, take precedent over a more raw herbal pepper kick, giving this a hop character that’s more sweet than bitter. Finishes like raw greens, leafy and a tad sweet, but with an unmistakable crispness.

M: Carbonation is very soft, barely there save for a bit of sizzle across the tongue as it goes down. Light, light body, but that goes well with cucumber – a refreshing, watery fruit.

O: This beer is great in two ways: it’s easy to get intrigued by, and even easier to enjoy. The flavors represented here are almost never taken advantage of in beer, and in brewing, you always get points for originality – as long as the end product is tasty, that is.
