10 Barrel Brewing Co. Crush Cucumber Sour

I have some good news. I am changing things for the new year. I will review non-alcoholic beer in January from the first to the fourteenth. So stay tuned for that. This beer is Crush Cucumber Sour from 10 Barrel Brewing Co. It weighs in at 5.0% ABV and is from Bend, Oregon. This beer pours a light yellow color with a one-finger white head. The aroma is sour, tart, and vegetal. The flavor is also sour, tart, and light cucumber (just a whisper) on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is light. Then this sour beer finishes with a more pronounced cucumber flavor (not too much). Then you get an aftertaste of sour and tart flavor that falls off rather quickly. This beer is just average to me. I’d give this Crush Cucumber Sour a C. It’s non-offensive, but it doesn’t have a lot of fresh cucumbers like the description on their website. If I were you, I would pass on this beer. I did, however finish this without wanting to pour it out. It’s not that bad. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers and happy new year!
