So... I had my bottle of Cucumber Saison tonight..
I honestly have to say that it was probably the worst tasting beer I've had in a very long time... the cucumber aroma and taste was just too pungent for me... I don't know how I finished the bottle... it was a mistake... I should have stopped after the first glass...
I went to have a Sierra Nevada Summerfest after I finished it just to wash the taste out of my mouth, and it won't go away! ugh.... I wish I had of had a ruiniation or a heavy stout in the fridge that was cold instead - something that would have totally cleansed the palate... even now I can still taste cucumber... So I think I'm done with beer for the night.. on to bed.
On the plus side of things, I hit up my usual bottle shop today for the first time in 3 weeks (out of town traveling and what not the last little while) and this week they had just gotten a huge DFH shipment! piles of 90, 60, and palo santo sitting around... and I talked to the beer guy and he passed me the last bottle of Theobrama in the shop, a bottle of the Postive Contact, and a 4-pack of Tweason'ale! Quite the haul, along with a 4 pack of the new DIPA from southern star I wound up spending $45, when I went in thinking I was going to leave empty handed... don't tell the girlfriend
