Cucumber SaisonCucumber Saison
Notes: We employ the humble cucumber in a low gravity Saison to create a vibrant ale with notes of melon, tropical fruit, lemongrass and, of course, cucumber. Put some cucumber wheels on your eyes, relax, and enjoy. Ahhhh.

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!

Pours golden yellow with a ring of head. Smells like sushi, actually. Cucumber and that sweet cold rice aroma. The taste is fairly similar to the nose. Sweet, light and refreshing. Light feel bordering on watery. Overall, pretty good. I'd have it again.

Lucky to taste this! only 10 gallons were produced and some made it to The Funky Buddha in Boca Raton for a CCB tap takeover. This is reviewed from notes:

A- golden yellow with no head retention or lacing, poured into a shaker pint

S- pure cucumber, saison yeasts , and a faint pickly brine background.

T- medium malty with yeast that supports the incredible fresh cucumber flavor. Hop bitterness translates to sour rather than bitter to mimic a cucumber salad taste.

M- good carbonation to give some softness to the thin body.

O- great for a one time release for fruit in the room! however i couldn't have had another one and almost had problems drinking down the entire pint, the taste becomes VERY cucumber salady after the first few sips. But, to try out such a unique flavor it was a great single beer.

[as of 6/17/12 i have had the newer batch on draft and in bottle fresh. this version was very refreshing light and much more cucumber in flavor without any accompanying brine. May re review when i open a bottle because it was substantially more enjoyable for my palate]
