Hazy bright golden body. Not much soapy white head sticks around.

There is definitely cucumber here on the aroma. Was wondering how much was going to come through. This lives up to its name.

Cucumber dominates the flavor as well. Light malts and yeast peek in and it ends dry. Not really getting much saison here. Just a lot of cucumber. Slight fruitiness from the hops. Ample carbonation despite the lack of head.

Cigar City is one of my favorite brewery's, saison's are one of my favorite styles and cucumber is one of my favorite flavors; somehow I still didn't love this beer. The flavor and smell of this beer fell short of my expectations. The look is consistent with a traditional saison. The only thing I can pinpoint that might change my opinion is if they added something to balance out the flavor. I think it's too heavy on the cucumber.

Dark gold in color with vibrant carbonation bubbles within. There's a quarter inch of sudsy white on top. I take a whiff and-Holy Crap that is very cucumber forward! I take a taste and I would describe this as more of a sweet pickle saison. I'm wishing they would have dialed down the cucumber flavor slightly because you really don't get anything else in terms of aroma or flavor. The mouth is moderately carbonated and dry. Not my thing at all.

Reviewed 7/26/12

L: HUGE frothy head. Pours a hazy straw color.

S: I think someone switched my beer glass with a jar of dill pickles ‘cause this smells like straight-up cucumbers…and little else. Some spice, but not like that of a typical saison.

T: The saison character comes out a bit more in the taste. Semi-dry upfront, finishing quite dry with only a slight bitterness as a residual flavor. The lemony and citrusy nature of the Sorachi Ace and Citra hops shine through a bit. Refreshing, to say the least.

F: Prickly and very light bodied. It’s got that refreshing, drinkable quality I think the brewers were shooting for, though the carbonation can be a bit overbearing.

O: Though I'm not entirely sure how to classify it, this is very unique and pretty darn good beer. With a really pronounced cucumber character, it's a thirstquencher for sure. If it were feasible here in NY, I could see this being a go-to for me in the summer months.
