4.3/5  rDev +25.7%

Poured from a 32 ounce growler into a stemmed glass. This was filled at the brewery today.

Appearance: Pours a nice translucent light-medium amber/gold and leaves a finger of white head that fades to a white rim around the beer. (4.5)

Smell: Refreshing floral cucumber, a hint of mint, and just a dash of citrus zest. Quite nice. (4.5)

Taste: That nice floral cucumber is still there, along with some light mint, some malts and a slight hint of citrus. Very light and refreshing. Quite surprising that this is 6.9%, tastes much lighter. Extremely sessionable. (4.25)

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a light to medium, slightly creamy body. Really smooth finish. (4.5)

Overall: Wonderfully refreshing and with nice floral, cucumber, mint flavors. I could drink this all day. (4.3)

Poured from a 32 oz Growler into a pint glass.

This beer pours a hazy light straw color with a nice white head. The aroma is very vegetal and slightly unpleasant. The initial taste has that same cucumber flavor, but then the mint takes over a bit cooling down the whole operation. I think the cucumber is a bit overpowering. I am glad I tried this, as it is very different, but it is definitely not my favorite. I can see this being a very polarizing beer. My companion really liked it.
