I love this stuff. Has a crisp clean sour taste with a nice cucumber kick in the back end. refreshing and not too strong or weak. I personally prefer my beers around the 5% mark and 4.5 is a good abv to enjoy without worrying if I'm gonna have a nasty migraine in the morning. It is pricey but it's a sour and a pretty good one. Easily my personal favorite.

Poured from a 12oz can with a best by date of 11/28/18; into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance- apple juice gold with a storm of bubbles; head is a thin to almost nonexistent white; no lacing.
Smell - cucumber, lime and watermelon perhaps?
Taste - this is nice, as the cucumber really pushes the lime tartness back and makes this an easy drinker that I think kicking back with a few is far doable than most spurs tend to be!
Feel - light, definitely not overly sour and tart, highly refreshing!
Overall- a little pricey and would love if the ABV was below 5%(I know, picky, picky), but a really solid “kick back” on a hot day beer.

Minimalist can artwork is reminiscent of the no name brand. But at least it’s painted and not wrapped in plastic.

Pours a vibrant straw gold, and inch of white foam kicks up but fades quickly to an ebb tide’s froth.

Smells of grain, cucumbers, rind, sharp yoghurt.

Taste is acetic right away with a sense of sea salt, hints of white vinegar, dill, almost on the edge of sweet watermelon rind and fistfuls of cucumbers washing across the palate. The light sweetness and piles of cucumber scours away the acidity which is disappointing as the tart character never really establishes itself.

Body is light, finish is awash with cucumbers and watermelon rind.

A pleasant beer, nice flavors perhaps my first cucumber brew. It should almost be called a cucumber watermelon rind beer. Good thing I like cucumbers because it disappoints a bit in the sourness— It’s pre-entry level in terms of sour power.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. 'BEST BY 06OCT18'.
Cloudy, dark straw colored body. Thin head settles to islands and ring. No lacing stays on glass.
Aroma of lemon and cucumber. Very much the cucumber vegetable smell.
Slight tart lemon taste with the accompanying cucumber, also melon (which sweetens the beer) and sour apple. Some sting on the tongue. Quite dry in finish.
Light, refreshing mouth feel. Tartness cleanses the palate.
A summer hot weather refresher type beer. Delivers as advertised.

A can into a snifter appears clear pale yellow with a white head.

It smells grassy with cucumber all across the nose with a lemony lactic background.

Tastes almost candy sweet before getting lemony lactic tartness and grassy cucumber into the aftertaste.

This is light in body with light carbonatiom. A refreshing and crushable offering for the summer.

I'm sort of in love with this beer.

It looks fine, I'm just not enamored with the clear yellow, never really have been, I don't have much to say about it aesthetically. Looks like a fizzier bud light. Tastes like a cucumber Warhead if there were such a thing, as others have noted it doesn't taste "natural" but that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's refreshing, tasty, and a little something different.

I don't know if I'd want to sit around and drink 6 of these, but it's very refreshing and I'll be staying stocked until the weather cools off again.

This beer pours a clear yellow with a large head. The aroma is fairly sweet, with a strong cucumber note, but a very fruity one, almost heading towards elderflower, with hints of mixed berries. The flavor is substantially sweet upfront, then fresh, wet cucumber flesh enter the picture, followed by a sour tang of lemon juice, with a slightly grainy and cucumber laced finish, reminiscent of a cucumber sandwich. Overall this is a pretty tasty beer - the cucumber is clear if tending towards the sweet side, and the overall effect is quite refreshing.

Nice looking brew
Smell is pleasant
Taste is strong cucumber but artificial sadly.
Feel is as in beers name crushable.
Overall this is a very good summer beer, with only knock being cucumber taste over the top artificial. Wish more breweries brewed cucumber style beers definitely as they are rare. CBC has brewed the best cucumber beer imo

Bought as part of a make your own sixer at my local specialty shop. Pours hazy straw yellow. Aroma is heavily cucumber and tart. Flavor is artificial cucumber/melon and sour on the finish. It almost tastes like a watermelon hard candy without all the sugar. Overall, I didn't really enjoy it; There was just something off on the flavor for me. I give them credit though, it was billed as a cucumber sour and that is exactly what you get.

Poured into a tall clear glass. Has a hazy yellow-green color like straw. Moderate carbonation, head dissipates quickly, minimal lacing.

Smells of cucumber and sour apple. Lemon, melon, coriander notes.

Tastes heavily of cucumber and sour apple candy. Slight lemon note, with cantaloupe and mild wheat. Feel is somewhat smooth. Overall, a lack of hop spiciness but still a very sweet juicy drink.
