I've driven past the Tommyknocker Brewery up in Idaho Springs a few times, and always managed to catch that iconic bearded elfin face on the drive, but never gone in to sample their brews until last week. On the whole, Tommyknocker Brewery make good, standard craft beer – nothing special that screams up and down to be sampled. Except this, the Jack Whacker Wheat. It stands out from their other craft varieties for the sheer kick it gives - a wild, zesty citrus from within a light-bodied unfiltered wheat. Granted, you would expect any brewery’s seasonal samplings to be a little more colorful and rich, but I was surprised by how very enjoyable this particular beer is, and I've happily passed on the recommendation to several others. There’s a good frothy head in which you’ll find the aromas mingling with the slight hoppy taste, before the fruity body, brimming with flavor and subtlety. And even though it may be winter up in Colorado, there’s something especially decadent about drinking what’s traditionally a summer drink in the cold snap of the mountain snow. Especially in comparison to its sibling offerings, the Jack Whacker Wheat is a beer to which I’ll be coming back.
