For those of you who question whether cucumber and beer work together, this beer shows that they most certainly do. It displays a moderate but soft fresh cucumber aroma with a light lemon and mixed pome fruit character as well as a light tartness. As the beer warms, a rich bready maltiness and light spicy aromas emerge to offer balance. The flavor shifts to exhibit a more prominent cucumber hit followed by a light, complementary tartness along with a light lemon zest, stone fruit (mostly apricots) and light spiciness. The cucumber lingers throughout the flavor and into the aftertaste. The beer finishes medium-dry, but the moderately low hop bitterness helps to create the impression of an even drier finish. The farmhouse character could be a bit better expressed, but the cucumber offers a clean, fresh character that makes this a very enjoyable, warm-weather quaffer.
