Do I really really like cucumbers???!!! Nope but do I really like this beer???!!! Yes, it is light, refreshing and crisp. It appears golden and hazy. Smells of citrus and cucumber. Taste is of a nice saison, some light fruit and the crisp and refreshing taste of cucumber. Really will clean the palate and could an amazing in between beer if it was available in 6packs (I only found it in a 750ml) Would drink this on a hot day out by the pool any and every hot day of the year.

a hazy orange - yellow pour with lots of soapy looking white head.
smells of fresh herbs, that pickle quirky smell comes through nicely, grassy hops, citrus notes.
oh my god - the pickle is so subtle at first but then it's all you taste! a nice hoppy bitterness.. lemon zest.. this tastes like a summer salad. seriously sooo tasty!
light body, high in carbonation, slight creaminess on lips. highly refreshing.

overall? best fucking summer beer ever. deliciously refreshing. really want to have more of this stuff on hand, it is too damn good. hopefully they make this a yearly seasonal and not just a one off.

Do you like cucumber? If not, then keep moving. Why people who don't like cucumber try this beer and are then dissapointed eludes me. A bit more complexity would make this perfect.

A - Brilliant. Towering, creamy foam explodes out of the glass. Chunky lace and nice retention. Lively carbonation in the glass.

S - Sweet fresh cucumber, mint, touch of lime, dill, fresh jalapeno, and soft lavender.

T - Absolutely awesome. Bright and crisp as it hits your lips. Fresh cucumber, melon sorbet, touch of mint, and lemon zest. Softly floral and herbal through the center with squash blossoms, dill, and just a hint of cilantro. Soft biscuity malt through the finish.

M - Great combination of prickly carbonation and a smooth, medium-full frame.

O - A fantastic saison. A brilliant flavor pairing for the style and extremely well executed.

On-tap at BA Hunahpu's release. Poured into a CCB Pint Glass.

Poured a glowing gold with a thin white head that settles to a slight haze. Huge aromas of cucumber and Saison yeast, with a slight pickle brine character. Taste follows the nose nicely, just slightly briny, yet so crisp and drinkable. Just a perfect melding between a cucumber and a Saison, if you can imagine such a thin. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a medium body and good, sharp carbonation. Tied with Final Push for my favorite beer of the day, this was an amazing offering!

A: Poured a golden yellow with little white cap, some bubbles and light lacing

S:Subtle and refreshing cucumber on the nose with a little bit of spice and hay

T: Very refreshing upfront. A very nice, subtle cucumber throughout with light hints of hay, some lemon and yeast. Finish is nice, crisp and clean with a light grassy and lighter floral hop note. Perfect for thr hot summer day.

M: Light bodied, well carbonated very tasty and easy on the palate with light cucumber notes persisting

O: Absolutely fantastic with the only flaw I saw being the appearance
