  • Pours slight haze with a half glass of pure white, tightly packed foam. Retention is great with the top of the foam becoming lumpy meringue. Lacing sheets the sides but most quickly falls back to level.

    Aroma is strong cucumber. Behind the up-front cucumber is a bit of pale malt and light spice.

    Taste is full of cucumber. Tons. There is a touch of spice but not much of base saison remains. There is a residual cucumber, almost bitter, typical of the gourd, just isn't for me.

    Medium body with heaps of carbonation while dries the palate thoroughly.

    This beer is all about the cucumber. No holds barred. I wonder how many cukes gave their lives to produce such a strong profile? Maybe over done as the base beer doesn't come through - this could have been on top of most any light beer, having the same affect. Refreshing. Enjoy!
