Just had this at the brewery in Oakland Park...
It reminds me of Cucumber Saison from CCB, just not as peppery and heavier on the cuke flavor.
It has a great appearance, a nice dark wheat ale yellow and a strong thick head.
The aroma is strongly of cucumbers. The taste is mildly sweet with a strong cucumber flavor. After a few sips you get past the strength of the cuke to experience some of the subtitles in the flavor like the basil.
It has a great mouthfeel, a nice wheat ale that is just right. Not too thin, not too thick.
Overall it's a pretty awesome beer if you like cucumbers, and I love em!
If you don't like cukes though, I'd steer clear for sure.

Another growler shared by Sean. Served in a snifter.

A - White foam settles to a thin collar, wisps, and minimal lace. Lightly hazed golden body.

S - Smells like cucumbers, with a hefty emphasis on the vegetal skin. Plenty of sharp wheat and a light peppery note; I thought this was a Saison, but perhaps it's the basil that is tricking me into thinking there is more expressive yeast here.

T - Taste has more pale malt sweetness to it that works to balance the vegetal cucumber and grain qualities. Solid balance and integration. Nice, but lacks the pop of the aroma.

M - Pleasant medium body, with crisp moderate carbonation. Tannic and grainy texture, and no obvious alcohol.

D - I enjoyed this, but I tend to be a sucker for cucumber beers. Will probably be polarizing depending on palates, as the cucumber is pretty intense. Quite refreshing and drinkable for me.
