Hearthstone Brewery released their Cool Hand Cuke Cucumber Sour over the summer.  This review is for an older can which may slightly affect the flavour.  If the brewery releases the beer again next year we may update this review.  Cool Hand Cuke pours from the 355mL can a clear golden colour with three fingers of white head that leaves no lacing on the glass.  The aroma is of grainy malts with some fruity and grape tones, hints of apple and lemon, and a light tartness.  This sour is fruity with slight citrus notes.  The malt presence is light and there are subtle notes of cucumber.  This is a very light, fruity, and drinkable sour and could be a gateway sour for many people who have not tried sour beer before.
