R&B Brewing Company – Birra Fresca Cucumber Mint IPA Review
The R&B Brewing Company has brewed up the Birra Fresca, a Cucumber Mint IPA. This beer sounds weird; cucumber does not necessarily seem to go with a hoppy beer but with an open mind and a thirsty stomach it is important to give everything a try. This amber coloured beer pours with two fingers of head and smells strongly of cucumber. There is a pine-hop bitterness that coincides with the fresh scent of cucumber that is unique, intriguing and a little odd. The flavour is actually quite strong with cucumber as well along side a moderate hop bitterness and minimal sweetness. If you are looking for typical this is backwards and upside down but if you are interested in something refreshing, unique and a little off the deep-end the Birra Fresca is actually fairly nice. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
