COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dry hopped sour ale. Funky Gold Mosaic is a dry-hopped sour ale. We took Prairie Gold and dry-hopped it with a huge amount of Mosaic hops. The end results are tropical, sour, and an all around new beer drinking experience! This beer is great fresh, but will continue to develop as the wild yeast continues to work in the beer.

DrunkSanta410 (418) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine, funky, citrus, grass. Taste is hoppy with pine notes and a solid bitterness, pairs well with a tart salinity. Hints of yeast and pepper. Very enjoyable! Palate is light body, medium heavy carbonation. Very good on a hot summer day! Nom nom nom.

Dogbrick (8965) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2015
This beer pours a hazy golden color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is lemony with notes of hops and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, mildly funky yeast and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly tart citrus and hops. Pretty good all around.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Maybe my favourite beer of the day, so a big thanks to the champion who brought this one! Pours unclear yellow with a creamy white head. Lovely nose, just full of peach, tangerine and melon. Light sweet flavor, tangy and fresh, with notes of lemon, more tangerine, moderate funk. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Clean and refreshing to finish, more lemon and peach, understated funkiness, low bitterness, slight rind. Excellent.

bhensonb (11908) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sour; there’s fruit, but hard to be sure what fruit. Wow, what a difference a taste makes. Flavor is sour, tropical fruit, floral and earthy/barnyard, but nothing overpowering. Flavors are firm, but they work together and it’s just very enjoyable.

javiercrasher (209) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2015
Rubia, pálida y nublada. Buena capa de espuma de burbuja fina que no llega a desaparecer. Aroma a grano y campo de heno, algo cítrica y tropical. Cuerpo medio y bastante gasificada, lo que le da un toque chispeante y refrescante. En boca cítrica y tropical con una acidez cercana al vino blanco.

popery (1562) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 20, 2015
The beer pours a darkened yellow. It’s quiet cloudy. Nice white head. It seemed a bit fizzy at first but is holding up well. The aroma is big on tropical fruit hoppiness. The underlying sour character is lactic and definitely present but milder than expected. Some funk but it lacks much in the way of depth. Lots of sweet pineapple with a little bit of lemon and floral hops. The taste is moderately sour and bitter. It’s nice enough but some of the nice hoppiness gets lost. Fairly high carbonation. Medium body. Interesting beer. The hops come through pretty strong andt add a nice, sweet fruitiness. The funk is underwhelming, but maybe, I just expected more because of the name. Enjoyable.

Countbeer (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Beautiful hazy yellow colored beer pours from a 50cl bottle a medium sized white head. Well whn it’s poured at 13 degrees Celsius in a Chouffe glass. Aroma already let’s you know this is a fresh hoppy fruity beer but it’s a sour ale and thus deliciously balanced. Both in nose and mouth damn tasty tones of fresh hoppy fruits and some flowers combined with a light woody and light (wild) yeasty undertone. Add some tart and light bitterness with a herbal edge and some dryness and you got the aftertaste. Crispy with good carbonation and mouthfeel. Even more perfect summer stuff!

harrymel (1536) - Spokane, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours straw and mildly hazed with a solid quilt of bone whites. Smells of dank, mango, straw, tart, grapefruit sweets. Flavor is nice and dry, lots of chalky yeast - dat brett character - mango, sweet hops. Dry, dry dry. Thin with moderately hi carb. Nice, sweet.

Theydon_Bois (11111) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, big thanks to Sheet Shorne, 24/01/15. Very lightly hazed pale golden with a decent off white head. Nose is tarte peach, tangy apricot, funky tunes, damp straw, soured mango. Taste comprises tangerine, earthy hop presence, light spice trail, pineapple chunks on the turn, light funk. Solid gear, hoppy pangs eat away at the sour edge, not for the sour purist by any means but a good hoppy meets funk crossover.
