a very weak saison, a very watered down and Americanized in a bad way. it pours a charming golden color with some opaqueness and a good inch of white head, but it fades fast as the beer warms. the nose is more Belgian yeast than traditional saison yeast, and I don't get a lot of wheat malt in here, just some leftover feeling sweetness. there is a lot of citrus in the taste, and the hops do appear to have influenced this one at least a little bit, but it tastes and feels thin, weirdly herbal, and the yeast just isn't quite right. carbonation is also lacking, and it gets filling even though its thin for this reason. tommyknocker has the best chicken wings ever, and their beers have always been on the right side of the fence for me, albeit barely and not all of them. I wanted this to propel them to a new level, but to me it was a beer that exposes the worst parts of the brewery, and while not a bad beer at all, its unexceptional, and will fade out of memory as fast as the carbonation leaves the glass of this one. a golden opportunity squandered.
