The Nice Saison Seasonal Ale from from Tommyknocker Brewery & Pub in Idaho Springs, Colorado pours out a rich gold in color with just a little haze and is topped with a finger of snow white, tightly bubbled head that reduces down to a thin film with a quarter inch collar after a few minutes. On the nose, tart apple, pear, yeast and a touch of spice. Very fragrant. In the mouth, tart from the beginning right until the end when a flash of sweetness makes itself shown. Lovely orchard fruit flavors with a bit of spice and yeast. Light bodied. Quite well carbonated. Little lacing on the glass. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Nice and tart on an extended finish.
A really good everyday saison that is ideal for the hot days of summer. Refreshing, tart and flavorful. Recommended.
