BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trinity Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
trinitybrew.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
It's officially summer and cucumbers are coming into harvest. Cooling cukes are such a nice treat that we decided to make a Saison d'été with them. Adding a large amount of English cucumbers per barrel, and just enough lemon zest to lend an overall brightness to the beer, this recipe is quickly becoming legendary.

Appearance: About 1 inch of head and it has good head retention. It is a cloudy golden color.

Smell: Strong cucumber smell and a bit of funky earthy tones.

Taste: You get a strong cucumber flavor and a fairly healthy degree of tartness. The cucumber flavor stays with you in the aftertaste. It fits the saison style well. They set out to make a cucumber saison and they nailed the flavor profile they were looking for.

Mouth Feel: Very light and crisp on your tongue. It dries a bit after a bit somewhat like a dry champagne.

Overall: The flavor profile was somewhat surprising, in the sense that the cucumber really packs a punch. I expected a more subtle cucumber but it is definitely the dominating flavor. Also, the cucumber comes off less sweet than I expected and more of a thick skin cucumber flavor.
I would rate it a 3.25/5. It is worth the experience of trying the beer.

Golden yellow body, mildly hazy, quarter inch of white head. Huge cucumber aroma. Freshly sliced garden aromas, salad. Meghan Trainor is all about that bass. Trinity is all about that cucumber. Tasty and well done. A fun beer well worth trying.

Incredible beer. Pours a light green color with a nice head. Nose has cucumber and tart funk. Delicate palate. Tart but quite complex as well. Super crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Overall fantastic, reminds me of fantome.

Pours pale light golden in color with a huge fluffy white head. Tons of peppery and spivey saison aromas blend nicely with juicy cucumber light grainy malt and earthy hops in the nose. Taste follows nose with plenty of fresh cucumber, more peppery and spivey sasion yeast and an earthy semi sweet quality. Nicely balanced, dry saison yeast is countered with juicy cucumber. On te lighter side with plenty of carbonation.

Waxed 12.7oz bottle poured into a white wine glass. Golden straw yellow in color, clingy white head that never disappears. And as far as aroma goes...it's a saison with a LOT of cucumber. The taste however, is almost artificial. The base saison is decent enough, along the lines of traditional Belgian farmhouse beers, so spicy, esthery, etc. The cucumber is almost out of place, or jarring in a way (if that makes sense). Still, it's a fairly enjoyable beer as you get though it, provided of course you really like cucumbers.
