Cigar City Brewing Cucumber Saison
One of those times when the name says it all, Cigar City Brewing’s Cucumber Saison is just that. The cucumber is obvious on the nose along with some seriously earthiness. This tastes a lot better than it smells, there is a lot of cucumber and earthy flavors, along with underlying notes of sweet melon and honey. The cucumber once again takes over the finish on this is a light and refreshing beer. Many would avoid this, maybe thinking it weird, but I have to say this was an outstanding summer beer. Be sure to check out the Brew/Drink/Run podcast Episode 1: The Summer Of The Saison to hear Lee and my thoughts on this beer.
