We take a witbier base and allow it to sour, similar to our Berliner, in the mash tun. We bake the orange peels and add then for buttering, along with coriander. Finally to bring that big burst of citrus we add 100 lbs of oranges from The Farm at Agritopia in Gilbert, AZ at the end of the boil. It all comes together for a mimosa like experience, but much cooler because it’s BEER!

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewpub, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, lemon, some grapefruit into some sour grain, lacto, hints of dough into a bit of white fruit as well. Taste was a mix of dough, yeast, nice sweet orange into a bit of peach, lacto, lemon, finishing tart. Nice.

BiiruBierBeer (471) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Smell is sour citrus, funk, and bitter beer. Taste is way better than the smell with a burst of bright citrus to start and an incredibly nice wheat aftertaste that lasts a long time and compliments the juicy sourness very nicely. Very sharp lively carbonation and incredibly drinkable. Perfect mouthfeel.

Draft at brewpub. Opaque light yellow cream color with slight off white head. Light and refreshing and ultimately thirst quenching. Mild to moderate pleasant easy drinking bitterness. Oranges stay in a complimentary role. (Doesn’t turn into oj beer). Very awesome.

draft, this is close to the berliner . Souring tastes similar. I like it. A wheaty sour beer. yum yum. I would like to see this dry hopped, maybe simcoe? that would be cool. Either way, the base is tasty, very refreshing.

Hazy golden orange. Tart aroma with coriander and citrus aroma much as described, this is a very sour but very easy to drink wit. Really nice

Huhzubendah (2809) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2014
On draft at AZ Wilderness. Hazy orange body with a thick, white head. Complex aroma, consisting of orange, coriander, citrus rind, oak, wine, funk, grass, floral and herbal notes. Massive sour character. In your face. Orange juice and a Berliner like quality, finishing with a direct assault on the palate, puckering the jaw and cheeks. My kind of beer. Wonderfully complex. Unabated and unforgiving. A delightful beer to sip over dinner and conversation.

Mavian (4) - - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
On draft during 1 year Annv. Smell is out of this world, almost like in the middle of an orange field. Pours with some slight carbonation and a very bright orange hazy color. Taste was phenomenal, primarily sweet and sour orange with a mingling of salty finish. Apt description of a beer mimosa.
