    Default Weird Beer Of Any Week

    Thornbridge Wye: "A Delicate Pale Ale lightly hopped with the unique and refreshing aroma of cucumber", and no joke. I hate cucumbers and this tasted of nothing but; I can still taste it. The ale doesn't feature on the Thornbridge website.

    With "over 1000 cucumbers used in the brewing process", it sounds like it should be called Thornbridge Why...

    LOL my sentiments exactly! It is listed under their bottle section with the caveat that "THIS ITEM CANNOT BE DELIVERED OUTSIDE OF THE MAINLAND UK". It shouldn't have been delivered outside the brewery, imho.

    I liked it.

    I had a Watercress Ale from Paradigm recently. Seeing as watercress pretty much tastes of nothing ("peppery" suggested the pump clip) it came across as more of a decent session ale than anything else... Have also encountered Thornbridge Wye in bottled format. A friend of mine once described cucumber as "just a long, thin green tube full of water".

    With current glut around I imagine many home brewers / gardeners will be gearing up for courgette something or other
    I drink to make others more interesting

    Wye has been around for years on cask.I sort of like it.There is something nice about it and something strange so I can understand your feelings.
    have also had Paradigm -watercress. Waste of a good salad ingredient imo.

    I agree, a sandwich made from stilton with a mixed rocket and watercress salad is sheer heaven.
    Salad ingredients don't belong in beer, herbs yes. I once made a beetroot beer, it was a lovely colour but had no flavour at all.

    They have a Honey Dew Melon pale ale 4.5 coming soon so you have something to look forward to.
