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.

On draft at Duckworth's in Cornelius NC.

Wicked Weed rarely fails to amaze me. The nose on this beer is fantastic, straight up cucumber and very peppery. There's no denying the cucumber, it's amazingly fresh - as if it was just added - or randalized. Thin golden brew with a nice fluffy head and thick lacing, creamy and peppery. Probably a perfect entry to experimental beers for the novice with easily enough interest for a beer geek like me. Gr8 beer.

@ Ridgewood

Clear pale yellow under a slender white head that drops to a bubbly white ring. Fresh, green aromas of cucumber, freshly crushed herbs, green vegetation, and light pepper. Continued cucumber freshness in the flavor, crisp and dry with basil, green grass, and some grain in the finish. Light, very refreshing, and slightly bitter. Quite the interesting beer…so green and fresh without much noise from the malts or yeast. Well made, though I don’t think I’d bother having more than one or two.

Had on-tap at Wicked Weed. Served in a mini shaker glass.

A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before falling to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Some bright saison yeast and then some cucumber that's quite apparent but not overly so.

T- Cucumber presence is greater in the flavor with a mild tangy saison yeast bite. Very refreshing if not a bit watery near the end.

M- Very mildly sharp with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- I'm glad that the cucumber isn't too heavy in this as the only other cucumber saison I've had was Cigar City's and it was a bit too much.

On-tap at Wicked Weed Brewing, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of basil and juniper berries are present in the nose.
T: Flavors of basil and juniper berries stand out in the initial taste while cucumbers are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and tastes like it would go well with a margarita pizza.
