Another growler shared by Sean. Served in a snifter.

A - White foam settles to a thin collar, wisps, and minimal lace. Lightly hazed golden body.

S - Smells like cucumbers, with a hefty emphasis on the vegetal skin. Plenty of sharp wheat and a light peppery note; I thought this was a Saison, but perhaps it's the basil that is tricking me into thinking there is more expressive yeast here.

T - Taste has more pale malt sweetness to it that works to balance the vegetal cucumber and grain qualities. Solid balance and integration. Nice, but lacks the pop of the aroma.

M - Pleasant medium body, with crisp moderate carbonation. Tannic and grainy texture, and no obvious alcohol.

D - I enjoyed this, but I tend to be a sucker for cucumber beers. Will probably be polarizing depending on palates, as the cucumber is pretty intense. Quite refreshing and drinkable for me.

Just had this at the brewery in Oakland Park...
It reminds me of Cucumber Saison from CCB, just not as peppery and heavier on the cuke flavor.
It has a great appearance, a nice dark wheat ale yellow and a strong thick head.
The aroma is strongly of cucumbers. The taste is mildly sweet with a strong cucumber flavor. After a few sips you get past the strength of the cuke to experience some of the subtitles in the flavor like the basil.
It has a great mouthfeel, a nice wheat ale that is just right. Not too thin, not too thick.
Overall it's a pretty awesome beer if you like cucumbers, and I love em!
If you don't like cukes though, I'd steer clear for sure.
