COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mimosa began as an idea: a beer inspired by our obsession with citrus. We built a recipe comprised of our favorite ingredients: Local organic raw wheat, Citra and Galaxy hops, Brettanomyces, and a healthy addition of fresh citrus zest. After 8 months of conditioning in wine barrels with our resident microflora, Mimosa is now ready to be enjoyed. 19º Plato 500 icus 10% abv

yngwie (13568) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. Very slowly gushing, producing a big, creamy, white head leaving lacings. Pale yellowish golden body. Quite flowery aroma, with citrus peel, some woody hints, a touch of pale malts, some saison yeast, a little impact from the brett, and a faint peppery hint. Medium body, dry and quite effervescent, lightly warming. There’s some warmth in the finish, with a little bitterness. Elderflower, citrus peel, grapefruit notes , some bretty hints and a spiced note. Lasting finish. A really wonderful one, it should probably be a bit lower in alcohol, I also prefer my saisons to be sessionable, but I’m certainly willing to have a strong saison every now and then if they’re as tasteful and wonderful as this one. Thanks a lot for sharing Alex. 121109

Thanks for sharing this, Joe. Pours a hazy yellow color with a tall white head. A really nice tartness of lemon on the nose. Plenty of wood, a bit of white wine, some peach, grapefruit, and a nice musty funk. The flavor is quite citric and has a nice tartness to it. Lightly funky and woody. White wine flavor, a bit of bread, straw, and a crisp, dry finish.
