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

Bottle received in trade. Thank you Glouglouburp! Pours hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is very tiny sweet, sour, fruity and funky with crackers, wood, lemon, orange and grapefruit juice, pineapple, peaches, mango, dark grapes, plums, wood, barnyard, passion fruit, dry soil, hay, woody tannins, white grapes and hints of cloves, white pepper and buttery wood. Taste is sour, tiny bitter, fruity and funky with crackers, the juice of basically every citrus fruit out there, peaches, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, woody tannins, white grapes, dry soil, barnyard and subtle hints of vanilla. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, slightly tart, smooth, round and medium to full bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with lemon juice, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, pineapple, dry soil, mango, dry wood, white Chardonnay wine and hay. Very nice, especially considering the abv.

Bootle shared by Blke, thanks man! Pour is cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is loaded with tart citrus notes followed by lightly tart and lightly dry notes. Also a light funk and then orange peel in the finish. I see where the name comes from. Flavor is bursting with citrus, especially orange notes up front. Then a light tartness follows with distant hints of sweetness and a very light funk note. The overwhelming sentiment at the table was how well this covers 10%. This is bright and delicious. Really nice beer.

Heady sweet citrus funk on the nose. Gorgeous golden hazy body with a white, delicate head. Tastes wheaty, bright, and citrusy with a nice, almost chewy brett bite. Assertive and complex, somewhat dry, very full-flavored. Lively, full-bodied carbonation, almost creamy but tempered by the citrus tang. I can’t imagine a situation where I would not enjoy this beer.

Another grand slam by Shaun. You sir are amazing. Tons and tons of oranges. Some mango and pineapple flavors. After drinking I taste like I chugged a big glup of orange juice.

Cloudy yellow/orange with small white head. Smells just like a mimosa, lots of citrus. Taste is amazing. Loads of citrus, white wine, and a little funkiness. Enjoyed this very much!

Bottle sample at the Where the Wild Beers Are 2012. Pours a bright, hazy orange body with thin white lacing. Aroma is fresh, citrus fruit, apricot, and sweet peach. Mouthfeel is soft and delicate with notes of citric wheat, sweet juicy fruits, a light tart funk, and sour peach. Another wonderful example of why HFS has the biggest Dad on the block, and he’ll knock you the f*** out.

Bottle: The aroma consists of oranges, apricots, light lemon, and faint sweet tarts. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a one finger white head that leaves behind some nice webbing behind on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with orange, apricot, and mango. The finish has some light-moderate lemon and white wine. It’s light-medium with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Bottle thanks to Paul. Beautiful opaque and cloudy golden/orange with nice head. Very aromatic nose, everything is well integrated. White wine and citrus at first, and then wheat and bretts. Some leafy hops can be found. Somewhat volatile, the alcohol is definitly present but not too much considering the high abv. Taste is coherent with the aroma with more hoppy bitterness and a solid brett presence. Full bodied and lively carbonation makes it very drinkable for its 10%. Very well executed and unique.
