3/27/2013 Tasted at Three Floyds event at Churchkey during CBC. Nice amount of bitterness, fruity aroma. Wish I could try again under different circumstances, but don’t foresee that happening. Remembering this being a nice surprise. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2013

Pours hazy copper color with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, pine needles, orange peel and citrus fruits. Flavour of citrus fruits, caramel malts, some goose berries and nettle. Very nice hop profile. Nice.
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber orange pour with a nice khaki head and good lacing. Lots of tropical fruits on the aroma, light and dark, with some citrus and just enough bready malts to back it. Good flavor as well, some lemon, plenty of tropical fruit, a decent balance of bitter and doughy maltiness. Tasty! dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber. Aroma is dank tropical fruit and grapefruit with some sweet malts and pine. Taste is sweet and malty mango with a big citrus pith finish. Lingering piney bitterness. Nice, and I sense much more Three Floyds than Half Acre.

Draught @ Mikkeller, Copenhagendrewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of fruity hops, caramely malts, sweetish notes. Taste is fruity and hoppy with some citrus, caramel and malts. Finish is hoppy and fruity with some malty notes. Nice, but doesn’t feel super fresh. Still tasty, though.
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Draft at half acre. Pours deep red with white head. Aroma has tropical fruit, slightly catty and woody, toasted nutty malt character, hop aroma isn’t as big as I was expecting. Flavors have a muddled toasted malt character with tropical fruit papaya and guava, slightly woody and sticky hops, lacks a bright tropical fruit character that I’ve come to know of this hop. Sort of an odd malf base and poor use of these hops made this not at all what I was expecting and bummed me out since it was the first commercial mosaic beer I’ve had. 3.4
Another draft pour tonight and it has developed nicely. Got a better aroma this time, slightly better overall hop feel. brian60625 (746) - Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Pint on tap at Half Acre. I was curious about the mosaic hops. I got a lot more out of the taste than the aroma in Anicca. The aroma was a moderate dose of pine and muskmelon. Appearance was a deep red-orange with a small amount of white foam on top, and a decent amount of bubbles streaming up. The taste is where things got pretty wild. Goliath-sized hop presence: juicy, piney, dank, and fresh. Tropical fruit is the main attraction: tangerine, kiwi, orange, muskmelon, starfruit. It has a strange combination of candied flavor and a dry texture. It’s not sweet and it’s practically puckering, like a sour Warhead candy. Palate was medium bodied and the carbonation seemed pretty subdued despite all the bubbles that I could actually see in the glass. Overall, it’s an excellent single-hop brew that offers a nice, clean glimpse of a new variety. It coated my mouth with sour fruit juice flavor for about an hour...even after a cup of coffee I could still taste it in my mouth. I could only take one pint of it, but I highly recommend it for the hop heads out there.
