Poured from cold bottle into a room temperature pub glass.

A: Pours Pours a golden orange with a thin head that quickly dissipates into no head.

S: Smell is fresh cucumber with a pungent touch, almost like kimchee.

T: Taste begins with a cool, sweet cucumber flavor that quickly waters down to a weak finish.

M: Feels like a saison, but with no head the light carbonation makes it watery and and unfinished.

O: A light, refreshing experiment that is a little wonky and hard to finish. While I'm glad to say I've had a cucumber beer, I probably won't have another.

Got this for my gf in hopes she liked it. We both couldn't stand it. Just not a good beer. Way too much Cucumber on the taste. Smell followed suit. Glad I tried it for I have never had anything like it, but will never seek it out again.

This one is just a little too weird for me. LOTS of cucumber on the nose and on the finish. Interesting, but I wouldn't drink it again.

From 07/01/15, bought a bomber of this at the brewpub in Tampa.

Nose is a bit odd, lots of earthy malts and vegetables. Taste is better, little bit sweeter, though still a lot of vegetables. Easy to drink. Overall not my favorite, wouldn't seek it out again.

Aroma has a lot of pickle like cucumber. Taste is has an okay amount of cucumber taste for me, but I do agree with the reviewers that said it does not really taste that much like a saison. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Decent beer, bought two bombers this year, will buy two more again if I happen to be somewhere and see them, but I will not be seeking them out. Great idea for a flavor profile and a summer release in Florida. I only wish it were a little more like the saisons I am more accustomed too.
