A great summer sipper, you can taste the fresh cucumber and cantaloupe garden party happening in this crisp Farmhouse ale!
Brewed with a ton of ingredients ... no really, a ton! 300 lbs. of cucumbers and 2,000 lbs. of cantaloupe were peeled, seeded, chopped and puréed by our brewing team ... talk about a labor of love! The result is a dry and refreshing saison, with a sligtly tart finish.

This is a perfectly fine if unremarkable saison. However, it shouldn't be unremarkable - it should taste like cucumber and cantaloupe! Well, maybe not cantaloupe - to be honest I wouldn't expect to get much cantaloupe flavor out of a saison, no matter how much they added to the beer. But cucumber - that should be easy to detect. However, I barely got any cucumber and I may have been imagining that. I certainly never would have known it was in there if I hadn't read the description. Oh well, at least it was a nice solid saison. No alcohol detected, nice creamy mouthfeel. If anything it was a bit on the sweet side - maybe from the cantaloupe? Who knows?
