5 oz pour into a tasting glass on tap at the Wicked Weed taproom.

L – Straw color with a ring of white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Crystal clear with lots of bubbles.

S – Definitely getting the basil and a touch of juniper in the aroma. There’s a very refreshing component to the smell as well that may be the cucumber coming through.

T – Pretty straightforward with cucumber, basil, and a bit of juniper. Even though I know it’s not in the beer, I’m getting a taste similar to lemongrass, too. While it is straightforward, it’s also very tasty and very well done.

F – Light-bodied, good carbonation, a very crisp and refreshing mouthfeel and finish.

O – I really, really like this beer. I don’t come across many of these fruit/vegetable beers that I feel strongly about, but this one is just so interesting to me. I never would think that a cucumber beer would catch my attention, but it is just so tasty and refreshing. This is the perfect summer beer.

GABF 2014 was my first taste of this beer; enjoyed it then and enjoy it now! Golden 4 oz pour from tap. Cucumber, basil, and other herbs gently greet the nose. Medium body with the hint of cucumber and basil appear on the front and a subtle note of juniper finishes. This is your summer beer! Go find it, you won't want to miss it. Prost!!

On draft at Duckworth's in Cornelius NC.

Wicked Weed rarely fails to amaze me. The nose on this beer is fantastic, straight up cucumber and very peppery. There's no denying the cucumber, it's amazingly fresh - as if it was just added - or randalized. Thin golden brew with a nice fluffy head and thick lacing, creamy and peppery. Probably a perfect entry to experimental beers for the novice with easily enough interest for a beer geek like me. Gr8 beer.

12 oz bottle from GA served with a baked chicken and spinach sandwich.

Look: Hazy golden body with plenty of visible carbonation leading up to a moderate size but durable white head.

Aroma: very floral; moderately herbal and fruity, and, in a good sense, lightly vegetative.
Flavor: mildly bitter. More basil here than cucumber.
Feel: pleasing light-medium body with soft medium-high carbonation.

Overall: refreshing; innovative; good complexity in both the nose and the mouth. Should work well with many flavorful foods.

Taste of cucumber and basil then finishes with a not so good bitternes. Although the original was not as bad
