3.91/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

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.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and a ton of effervescence. Head is two fingers of pillow white foam that have pretty good staying power. I like it a lot.

Smell: lightly sweet with a dash of tartness and plenty of cucumber. I love how bright and refreshing it is.

Taste: light wheaty malt, just hint of sour, and plenty of fresh cucumber flavor. I just love it.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess.

Overall: I love how massively refreshing this beer is.

From the snazzy freshness dated CAN into a perfect pint glass results in a slightly hazy yellow body topped by a two finger bubbly head that soon goes away, lots of bubbles race to the top.
Aroma is subdued but there is certainly some obvious cucumber in there and an astringent wheat beer tang, this might be just as good from the can as a glass, so I'll edit this later on the next one.
Taste is cucumber water mixed with tart lemon and slight bread sweetness thrown in, the feel is incredibly light and crisp with a wet aftertaste.
Overall it's a very refreshing thirst quenching beer, would go really well with Summer BBQ, Quite a unique take on Berlinerweise. EDIT Yep from the can is just fine.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Cucumber is definitely not a flavor you see often in beer, however is very refreshing.

Look: golden like a hazy summer sunset

Smell: a hint of cucumber but mostly a slight garden smell from yeast.

Taste: delicious. A bit of sour cut by the refreshing taste of the cucumber. Very subtle.

Feel: very difficult to rate but the light and refreshing taste you would expect from a Weiss.

Overall: I could def find myself "crushing" a few of these on a patio this summer. Light enough to session and tasty enough to want more.

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.

Pours straw colored with lots of carbonation, thin head which rapidly fades, as is normal for the style. Smell is sour cucumbers, as stated right on the label. Not a great smell in and of itself, but it prefaces the taste completely. taste is very bright and refreshing. It tastes almost more of melon than cucumber, particularly the after taste. All of it is soured though, but almost to perfection. This is refreshing sour, like lemonade (although obviously without the sweetness.) Mouthfeel is light and crisp, feels nice.
