I was warned about this, but sadly I had to try for myself. For anyone considering this, avoid it. Really. DO you like cucumber and pumpkin mixed with malt and hops? Me either.

This beer smells of cucumber. And then more cucumber. What a wretched, awful pairing. I’d be embarrassed to have released this. Straight garbage. Really, it like drinking pickles and pumpkin puree. AVOID.

Big glass tonight at Bittercreek.. Pours a hazy light orange... okay white head has nice retention and lacing... Nose is all about the cucumber, pumpkin/squash comes out light without any real spicing... Flavor again tastes like cucumber water spiked with plenty of pale malt extract, this sounds terrible, but is actually pretty refreshing.. Not sure that I will EVER buy this again.. okay, maybe a taster, but Elysian produced one of the most "interesting" beers ever with this offering... Don't think that is necessarily a compliment. :-)
