3.66/5 rDev -4.2%
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.

3.8/5 rDev -0.5%
Appearance: A clear golden pour with the head forming to three inches and creating some good lacing action
Smell: Cucumber and juniper berries
Taste: Cucumber and juniper, up front, with the basil and yeast combining in the middle to add an herbal, almost briny character; the flavors persist into the finish
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I am not a fan of juniper in beers so I can't say I really enjoyed this; I can see why others might, however

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.

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.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, yellow-gold coloring, with a halo of white head. Nose of cucumber and herbal/basil spicing. Subtly sweet with a spiced edge. Flavors are basil spice forward, with a cucumber backbone, hints of gin, and toasted grains. Smooth, light bodied, with an herbal aftertaste. Smooth, crisp finish. Wow!!

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.
