On tap in Portland.
The hazy golden body is topped by a semi-durable white head that coats the glass when tipped.
Moderately tart.
Light bodied but with suitable lively carbonation. Mild, easy drinking, with plenty of cucumber flavor along with sour citrus and faint sole.
Quite nice.

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.

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.

L: hazy straw filled with streams of fast rising bubbles under a massive white foam cap with poor retention

S: clean refreshing smell reminiscent of a summer salad

T: mildly sweet cucumber lemony tart start reminds the drinker how well lemons and cucumber go together

F: Very effervescent with a light body

O: an unusual yet highly refreshing beer

Pours a finger of head on a hazy light straw body.
The aroma is cucumber and grain.
The taste is cucumber and a mild tart flavor.
The texture is crisp.
A really enjoyable brew.
