A: Golden cloudy with a greenish tinge, huge torrent of upward fine bubbles rise in the middle of the glass, 2 fingers of yellowish fine bubbled head.

S: Belgian yeasts, light sweetness, light cucumber, dough, phenols, light blue cheese quality.

T: Cucumber, light tartness, lemon water quality, light dough, light phenols, light blue cheese quality.

M: Light body, lots of fine bubbled carbonation, dry crisp light feel.

O: Great light beer to have on a hot day. Definite cucumber but it's light and still present. Unlike Wicked Weed’s imperial cucumber in that there's has a strong and in the face melon quality. Bought in West Palm Beach Whole Foods, drank on Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton the first day of my vacation, July 12, 2014.

Not for everyone. You definitely get the cucumber. The smell reminds me of my mother's kitchen when she was making homemade pickles - a pleasant smell but not something I'm looking for in a beer. Got this on a sampler. Don't think I could do an entire glass.

Ohhhh God.smells like hippy feet and a salad from a cheap hotel buffet. Looks like Miller lite. Tastes like cucumber, but in a way that makes me hope I never encounter them again. I don't know what they were thinking when they brewed this but I won't hold it against them.
