3.9/5 rDev +1%

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of gentle rising carbonation from the bottom of the glass and some hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy/creamy white head that slowly reduces to a thick film coating the entire surface of the beer with a couple of small slightly thicker patches and a medium thick ring a the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of fresh cucumber with light notes of basil.
T: Upfront there is a light flavor of grainy malts with some light to moderate flavors of basil and juniper berries. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of fresh cucumbers.
M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Refreshing and crisp.
O: This beer is light, refreshing, and very easy to drink - it pairs well with pizza. Very enjoyable, I would highly recommend this one.

5 oz pour into a tasting glass on tap at the Wicked Weed taproom.
L – Straw color with a ring of white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Crystal clear with lots of bubbles.
S – Definitely getting the basil and a touch of juniper in the aroma. There’s a very refreshing component to the smell as well that may be the cucumber coming through.
T – Pretty straightforward with cucumber, basil, and a bit of juniper. Even though I know it’s not in the beer, I’m getting a taste similar to lemongrass, too. While it is straightforward, it’s also very tasty and very well done.
F – Light-bodied, good carbonation, a very crisp and refreshing mouthfeel and finish.
O – I really, really like this beer. I don’t come across many of these fruit/vegetable beers that I feel strongly about, but this one is just so interesting to me. I never would think that a cucumber beer would catch my attention, but it is just so tasty and refreshing. This is the perfect summer beer.

First had: on tap at Wicked Weed
There aren't many elements of this beer that I like--not a fan of juniper, cucumber--but somehow they managed to pull this one off to the point where I actually found it drinkable.
Clear yellow pour with a small white head that fizzled out, leaving a small ringlet behind. Cucumber slice garnish. There was a blast of cucumber in the nose, but mainly from the garnish, lesser notes of basil and grass. Crisp and clean on the palate, basil and cucumber flavors obvious, light notes of juniper berries and herbal hops, fleshed out with lightly toasted pale malts. Body was light, mouthfeel was crisp. This was an easily drinkable beer for sure, and quite well-done overall.
