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

Poured from the tap into a tulip glass at Varner's in Smyrna, GA. The appearance is a mildly murky golden color with a small white head. The aroma is mildly scented spices, cucumber was not present to me. The taste was a very mild basil and very slight cucumber taste. An excellent beer.

Pours a slightly hazed amber with a sliver of cream colored head. Minimal head retention & lacing

S: Cucumber, grassy

T: Follows the nose, plus dryness & Basil up front. Some pear notes, hints of honey & a little more cucumber & dryness as this warms along with a little cucumber. Finishes dry, a little sweet with some Basil & a litttle cucumber

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation

Drinks great for the strength.
