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.

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.

I tried this at a beer show in Highlands Ranch Colorado. Amongst the many beers I tried, I really liked this one. Not perhaps because of the overall goodness but because of it's uniqueness. Very crisp and aromatic. If you're hesitant about a beer with cucumber, do not fear. It's worth a try. It's actually rather light feeling. It also is brewed with Grains of Paradise, which I've started seeing in a lot of summer brewed beers which gives it kind of a peppery taste and aroma along side the crisp and almost mild fruitiness of the beer (Let's not forget that cucumber is technically a savory fruit, a berry in fact) I'd serve it with salad or light fleshed meat like chicken or perhaps grilled pork or white fleshed fish especially if it's spiced with pepper, coriander or grains of paradise. It's pretty good so if you have an opportunity, at least get a sample. It's a unique beer that is definitely worth a few minutes of your time. Besides, it's craft beer, it's going to catch your attention anyway!

Murky yellow-orange color with LARGE flowing white soapy head. Decent lacing too.

Awesome aroma. Very unique. Peppery, true cucumber aroma.

Earthy, dirty, nice bright sweetness with even field flavors. Unique dryness shines though in a great way. Cucumber flavors are weird and true.

A recommended brew if you're looking for unique. If you're not into funky brews tread lightly. Well done Trinity! Keep em' coming!!!
