From bottle. Pours with modest head that didn’t last. Very murky orange. Rich aroma of rockmelon and tropical fruit. Drinks with diverse fruit flavour and subtle yet lingering bitterness. Nice beer

Tap into a wineglass showing lightly filtered hazy orange with clean white foam.

The nose shows dank cannabis with notes of mango and light guava.

The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of mango mixed with dank cannabis on a solid malt backbone. Refreshing and superb.

Bottle, many thanks minutemat! Hazy orange color with big creamy white head. Aroma is mosaic with dank flavours of tropical fruits, blueberry, pineapple, melon, resinous, a touch of sweat and onions, biscuits, some yeasts. Taste is tropical fruits, melon, pineapple, sweatsocks, grassy, very juicy, biscuits and bread. Rather fizzy carbonation. Quite a harsh finish with sweatsocks, onions and more tropical fruits. As so many Mosaic beers, this one is on the more sweaty side, but it works out!
