They definitely nailed with the "cucumber" part of this, but that's really it. The flavor to me was more like a light ale with pickles.

Had this beer from a bomber recently and back in 2012 so I will try to bridge the two tastings. Then it had overwhelming tastes and smells of cucumber. Also rather creamy, perhaps too much and not much crispness or hop. Now in 2015 this beer definitely mellowed out. However that could be because I drank it over six months after its bottling date, not intentionally fyi. Cucumber flavor and smell was still there but not as much as before and still quite a good beer. Also seemed more hoppy and carbonated to the point where there was a massive head even after a slow pour. Overall I'd opt for the over the top cucumber flavor back.

Too much cucumber taste for me, but it's a nice beer for sure.

I wanted to hate this, but wow! like a pickle, but blends into a 'beer' nicely..... probably not really a saison, but very interesting and well-put-together.....

Pours light golden with thin white head. The cucumber smell and taste are very potent. Also tastes of wheat and light yeast flavor. The cucumber with alcohol almost gives a light dry pickle flavor on the back of the tongue. Nice and refreshing. Excellent summer beer.
