I've been wanting to try this beer for a long time...I poured it into a balloon glass. Hazy yellow gold body that shows off some very active carbonation. There is a thick white head that holds for a while and leaves minimal lacing.

Aroma is of Cucumber! Go figure...No, but there is a pleasant cucumber aroma with a little hint of lemon citrus fruit. I find it quite appetizing and well-executed.

The taste is reminiscent of a raw cucumber, like and unpeeled cucumber. There is a light acidity that flows with the light body of the beer, no doubt because of the strong amount of carbonation. There is not much sweetness here, but a good true cuke flavor mixed with wheat-like qualities. Very refreshing!

I am glad that I got the chance to try this, because I think it's a nice take on the saison style, and it reflects Florida well. The lemony hope qualities go hand in hand with the cucumber flavor and aroma, and the base saison is strong and achieves the right properties to differentiate this beer.

Pours a murky yellow/amber color yellow on the outside more orange core showing through. Nice fluffy two finger white head that falls oh so slow with some descent lace.

Aroma is definite cucumber but also tart lemon grass, some light pilsner malts maybe some light wheat hints also. Some light spice from the yeast also.

Taste is bam a big burst of carbonation light malt then big cucumber notes. Other flavors appear as the cucumber dies down lemon grass, some earthy yeast notes and spice hints.

Mouthfeel is light medium the carbonation level is too much for me to find it good. But many saisons do tend to be peppy.

Overall was looking forward to trying this one smells good the carbonation just kind of kills it for me. Probably the only Cigar City brew I have not loved.
