look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - Pours semi cloudy yellowish color with nice white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film. No lacing

Aroma - Huge raw cucumber aroma along with lime. The salt is coming out as well, it really smells like a fresh picked cucumber that has been salted.

Taste - The tasty follows the aroma spot on. There is a little more salt at the beginning and the end with the meat of the cucumber in the middle. This thing has the perfect amount of both cucumber flavor and salt. The lime is present as well and plays well with the other flavors.

Feel - Light bodied tart salty slightly puckering finish.

Overall - I am not sure what I would change about this amazing flavors great balance.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, straw-hued body. There's a slight, small white head, but it fizzles out fairly quickly.

Smell: It's like smelling fresh-cut cucumber. The cucumber is the primary component of the aroma, leaving you some work to smell past it to detect the far, far subtler lime, wheat and even the lactic qualities.

Taste: Slender wheat with a very modest hint of sweetness, stirred up with rock salt and lime juice. Then, as with the aroma, it's a big wallop of cucumber, like guzzling the run-off waters from a Ruby Tuesday's salad bar. And, for me, it's this aggressive cucumber taste that hampers the overall flavor, quickly taking over the remaining lime, salt and lactic-laced wheatiness. Shoo, cucumbers! Shoo!!

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Reasonably crisp.

Overall: Like a lazy sushi bar menu, it's all cucumber.

Poured into a snifter. Hazy golden color with a frothy white head that left quickly. Huge cucumber aroma. Some earthy notes and wheat, but dominated by the cuke. More balanced on the palate, with a nice blend of cucumber, tart lime, salt, and some spicy coriander. Dry and clean. Really interesting and enjoyable.

Can dated 6/6/17 poured into Lexan tulip. Deep yellow, or golden with white head that recedes quickly. Nose is first-soft cucumber, some lime. Taste is where this shines (and the nose was pretty awesome). New dill pickle, brininess, lime, crackers, and then more cucumber. I love pickles. This is perfect. Drinkability is huge on a hot summer day.

This is the best Creature Comforts beer. It is absolutely perfect. If you want a summer beer, this is it. I don't even like cucumbers but it's so refreshing. It's light, crushable, smells amazing, and tastes perfect.

May be my favorite sour ever.

if i was going to tap one brewery not named evil twin on the shoulder to do something this weird in this style, these guys might get the nod, so its no surprise that this weird sounding on paper beer is actually awesome. the cucumber is fresh and real tasting, almost mushy or juiced, but crisp and honest and summery. meanwhile, the lime is an accent flavor, not too essential oily or perfume forward, more of a natural zest thing, it adds to the refreshment and the interest without being too strange or too much. the sourness is also sort of light, this is more of a zesty pucker than a real heavy bacterial acidity, which i think helps with drinkability and frankly approachability, anyone should like this even if you generally dont prefer sour beer. the base beer is good on its own, and i still taste the wheat malt through the added flavors. its all very natural and cool, mellow and easy, and i think really well done. cucumber seems to be working its way into more and more beer, but this one stands out from the rest of them for me. these guys are on fire. dry and charged up, i could drink ten of these on a hot day, and would if i could right now. really solid.

Creature Comforts does it again creating another winning beer.

A really crisp refreshing beer, the cucumber gives it that light feel, and the lime comes with a citrus note that plays well. This was definitely better colder, oddly. Cold it was as refreshing as those lime pepino Gatorades. As it warms the soured cucumber and lime, leans toward a pickle flavor that would be off putting to some. Definitely an easy drinker, light bodied and the flavors work well, drink these mostly cold and you'll be in the good. Excellent beer though!
