    Released 20 minutes ago, if you buy one today you can drink it on it's "born on" date!

    That beer was fascinating to me, got it through (750ml) Craft Beer of the Month club,
    awesome gift from my loving wife. Love Cigar City and was shy about having this
    beer, but it just works! Fine summer brew.

    I actually thought that this was going to be a one off. I'm glad it isn't. This is a very big want for me.

    I don't think that one was a collab with Mikkeller. I can't find any info relating Mikkeller to this, you might be thinking of Swinging Harry.

    When? They originally wrote $9 on the board, but changed it a few minutes later to $12. I didn't see any sold between then, in fact they couldn't because they were waiting to enter it in the computer.

    I held up two bottles and then gave the bartender a 20 dollar bill and said good day. I grabbed two right after the last guy got Huna. I guess I owe them a couple of dollars when i go back for 2 more on my way home :relaxed:

    This guy put up a FT thread for two 32 oz growlers of RareR DOS which he said he filled himself at his growler shop in Georgia. This is impossible since Pegs had never released kegs of RareR to other bars let alone to Georgia. The thread disappeared when he was questioned about this. Seems fishy to me.

    At least you know he can be trusted with MGroove as part of his username.

    I offer a huge apology to mwgroove23. I am amazed to find out that some Rare and RareR did make it out of Peg's.

    You also owe him a road trip to his growler shop because it's apparently fucking incredible haha

    Its incredible how much this beer actually smells and tastes like cucumber. I dig it. (opinion based off previous experiences, as I have not had this batch).

    I've been told that it tastes more like pickles than cucumbers.

    It kind of tastes like a cucumber salad with a little bit of Italian dressing and sugar. Know it sounds strange.

    I found that the Cucumber Saison is a wonderful pallet cleanser when doing tastings with big stouts. We used a bottle of last years during a bottle share I did with some buddies in Birmingham, it was great between Cognac Church on a Hill and AB Huna

    Eh, definitely not one to sit on... I found one around Xmas that I forgot that I had... The cucumber had started to fall off and was tasting more like cardboard than cucumber.
