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 361 pours a clear golden orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of Brett, hops, bready dry wheat malt, and lots citrus. Very tart, strong hits of Brett, and oranges, with dry bitter hops. Very enjoyable!

750ml bottle (2011 bottle 56 of 450). Huge thanks to Scott for sharing! Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thick pillowy white head. Aroma of sour citrus, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, lots of funk, and brett. Taste of biscuity malt, sour juicy tart citrus, orange zest, orange pulp, and lots of funky brett. Awesome!

Review from backlog, bottle reviewed 08/12/2012. Pours hazy golden orange, soft frothy white head, sticky lacing. Aroma is soft yeast, wheat, pronounced orange citrus, tart funky edge. Taste is tart, sour orange, intensely fruity, citrus hops, a bit of booze, alcohol coming through to give a champagne-like bitterness, dry finish. Medium bodied, spritzy. Tasty for sure, but almost a bit one-dimensional, lacking some of the complexity found in other HF brews.

RichTheVillan (2125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle via international trade; enjoyed with Kaufmanised, Cloudy amber pour with white head, citrus aroma, a big hit of Brett sour funk, strong taste of Christmas fruit bowl satsuma, mandarin, oranges, just a massive delightful fruity taste, some peppery yeast action, decent fizzy mouthfeel, overall a memorable beer experience which is unlikely to be repeated.

alexsdad06 (4530) - Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Sample from a bottle at DLD ’11. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head. The aroma is orange citrus, hay, funk, Brett, yeast and some floral notes. The flavor has a great blend of the juicy citrus with orange zest, Brett, funk, hay, and hints of spicy hops. I was shocked to see this was 10%, it is too easy to drink.

750ml bottle in a Hill Farmstead glass. Pours orange/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of citrus, some white wine, a lot of citrusy and floral hops, a nice clean Bretty-ness, a good amount of wheat and pale malts, plus just a lot fruit. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A great beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 Woodshed 2.0. 750mL bottle share courtesy of BOLTZ7555. It pours with a opaque deep gold body and copper core supporting a bright white head of foam. Nice looking beer. The aroma is a mix of green apples, peach and pear flavored cotton candy. The taste is rich and crisp and snappy and smooth all at the same time. It delivers various fruity notes like peach, grapes and apples as well as mild smooth saison yeastiness.
