A: pours a clear orange with a finger of white head that fades into a frothy layer with decent lacing.

S: sweet cucumbers and watermelon dominate here with a bit of fir-like gin aroma.

T: cucumber and watermelon here as well with candy sugar, a bit of clove, and a light yeast bitterness. A warming gin flavor brings up the finish with a slight alcohol presence.

M: medium body with lowish carbonation, this beer is fairly drinkable for its abv, though just avoids being watery.

O: an enjoyable beer overall. The gin, cucumber, and watermelon work together nicely, creating a unique and tasty beer.

On tap at WW 05/2014

Appearance: Dark Blonde, more clear than cloudy. Minimal head

Smell: A little barnyard but mostly GIN and cucumber

Taste: GIN is heavy but blends nicely with the style and cucumber notes. The hops, basil and gin make this beer better than the original. I would have never expected these ingredients to mix come together as well as they did. Unique, original, fantastic.

Mouthfeel: It was getting late and my palette was not in the best shape but crisp and dry for the most part

Overall: WW goes where no brewry has gone before....again... and knocks it outa the park. Please bottle this.

4.85/5  rDev +18.6%

Appearance: a light orange color. A small white head that fades quickly and leaves nothing behind. Hazy and half way between clear and opaque.

Smell: does a great job at capturing a cucumber smell. Very subtle. But does remind me of cucumbers. Lots of herbs and gin spicing in the back. Juniper is present. But everything else is very subtle and blends well.

Taste: opens up with wood, juniper and other gin-esque flavors. A slight bite of alcohol. Ends with a juicy bite of a cucumber.

Mouthfeel: almost light and refreshing but strong and astringent at the same time. Leaves behind a herby, alcohol taste

Overall: amazing beer. Perfectly captures a cucumber and gives of the strength and character of gin. And everything blends perfectly together. A great tasty, strong and unique brew.
