From a can: This is the worst beer I can remember tasting. I like cucumber saison if properly done (best I've had were from other home brewers) but this was terrible. I only gave it three sips before pouring it out. It left a very bitter turnip green sensation at the back of my throat. I could not recognize saison or cucumber on the palate. Luckily this was in a tackle box pack and I had a SW 420 to quickly refresh my palate.

Not very pleasant at all. Lacks depth, and is on the funky side. Won't be having again.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is cucumbers, did i mention that I am not a cucumber fan? Oh well, onto the flavor. Awesome, it tastes like cucumbers. Not my favorite flavor choice. Maybe Brussel Sprouts will be next.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of yeast, spices, hints of cucumber. Taste is cucumber, much stronger than in the aroma, spices, dry at the finish. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique beer, and not bad.

Light yellow color with white cap and lace.

Aroma has a definite cucumber scent that's present without being intrusive. Other than that I get little more than a pleasant sense of floralness. This was so light I let the brew warm a bit a the cucumber becomes sharper and more focused. Remains pleasant.

Taste is of a mild brew that features the cucumber. Very dry and something like a cucumber flavored chamomile tea, if there is such a thing. A focused tartness yet remains dry through out and the aftertaste carries a mild malt flavor and slight bitterness which I presume is due to hops.

Light texture with balancing carbonation.

Overall it's sorta interesting. It's not a muddle or a mess, just a pleasant light brew with a refreshing clean taste.

I poured from a can into a chalice. First sip caught me by surprise, tarter than I expected. The flavors are more subtle than expected but still tasty. The finish is bone dry. With the low ABV, this will be a great thirst quencher this Summer.

Pours an effevescent gold with a pinky of pearl white head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Pear & cucumbers

T: Follows the nose, plus dryness up front. A litttle grassyness, more cucumber & dryness as this warms. Finishes with plenty of cucumber, a little grainyness & dryness

MF: Medium body, crisp carbonation

Drinks easy, I've had better cucumber beers though. I could take or leave it, refreshing enough
