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

Purchased this for $20 at the February 18th Hill Farmstead Release. Poured into a Hill Farmstead glass. Bottle Number 327/450

A - 1 Finger head completely clear with big bubbles - Totally golden. Mild clouds in here all gold!

S - Orange peels, orange zest, orange juice. It’s all there! I’m getting lavender and coriander

T - Tastes like a fantastic Saison / Wheat beer but with an immense amount of carbonation and orange. Tons of orange just really balancing out a terrific wheat taste. This is insanely awesome.

M - Half bubbles and half liquid upon a single mouth swish. Very light bodied and very easy to drink! Delicious aftertaste of orange juice zest with some juniper in there

O - Pretty amazing. In line with my expectations. Orange Wheat beer is all amazing.

750mL red wax b1 thanks to oteyj. Pours a glowing, beautiful light orange to tangerine with a massive, rocky off-white buttermilk IPA like head. Huge retention and massive lacing. Nose is pretty much b1 Cuvée de Castleton with fresh pineapple, lots of fresh dough, quenching tangerine character a lot like Stillwater Barrel Aged Stateside. Hints of saltwater, big tropical Brett nose like Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza. Hints in the nose of paper and sweet Mayan onion. Even some mild orange liquor. Taste up front has a nice smack of clear alcohol moving to bready sweet rolls and Stillwater Stateside Saison dough and pineapple play off. Gets a little bland actually as I go through the glass. Some nice saltwater and grapefruit tanginess brings this one to life. I enjoy the refreshing quenching character of the aforementioned beers but the abv here just seems to detract and the actual substance seems secondary to the incredible aroma. Very slight lactic acid and flashes of saltiness make up the major flavor profile with pink grapefruit and tangerine. No acetic. I guess my only qualm is the high abv which is unnecessary. Thankfully it doesn’t detract very much. The way this beer was constructed and the ultimate goal of this flavor profile was practically a shoe-in for my favorite beer of all time. I still think it needs work, but it is quite excellent now. Hopefully Shaun tries to do this one again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: When fresh: A citrusy wild ale like no other. With some age: A very rustic strong wild ale with well integrated citrus fruits
How: From very fresh to slightly aged. Tap at the brewery a few events, two bottles split two-way. This rating for a bottle split two-way approximately 6 months after the beer release and comments from other experiences
The look: Cloudy blond body topped by a medium white head with good retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is very wild with plenty of bold brett over nice fresh citrus fruits. Taste is refreshing fresh fruits (citrus fruits & tropical fruits) swimming in wicked wild yeast mixture that is not only funky bretty but also very rustic Saison. The 10% is absurdly well hidden, this beer is almost as easy to drink as some of HF 6% Saisons. Not the most complex by this fin brewery, probably the most straightforward Saison/Wild they have made so far. It is very surprising to taste the two beers made using citrus fruits from HF (Daybreak and Mimosa) fresh and aged, in both cases the citrus fruits became almost totally assimilated by the beer after only 6 months of aging. I much preferred the fresh citrusy Daybreak but I preferred less citrusy aged Mimosa. The Mimosa has now developed into a wicked wild beer now that it is not overwhelmed by the citrus fruits anymore. This beer has serious aging potential. Mimosa has become a much coveted beer, almost whale status, and if anybody reading this rating would like to learn about an easy way to acquire some Mimosa for cheap without having to trade precious beers than feel free to beermail me, and then we can talk about how much we would both like to know of an easy way to acquire some Mimosa for cheap without having to trade precious beers.

Pours shining bright golden orange with a beautiful white head - wow! The aroma brings plenty of citrus and hops, muted sweetness, and sweet tanginess. The flavor is the same, citrus, tangy sweetness and orange juice straight up settling on the palate. It lays thick on the tongue, but perfectly enjoyed there with a smooth tartness. The Brett hasn’t fully kicked in but this beer is close to perfect as usual from Mr. Hill.

yngwie (17365) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. Very slowly gushing, producing a big, creamy, white head leaving lacings. Pale yellowish golden body. Quite flowery aroma, with citrus peel, some woody hints, a touch of pale malts, some saison yeast, a little impact from the brett, and a faint peppery hint. Medium body, dry and quite effervescent, lightly warming. There’s some warmth in the finish, with a little bitterness. Elderflower, citrus peel, grapefruit notes , some bretty hints and a spiced note. Lasting finish. A really wonderful one, it should probably be a bit lower in alcohol, I also prefer my saisons to be sessionable, but I’m certainly willing to have a strong saison every now and then if they’re as tasteful and wonderful as this one. Thanks a lot for sharing Alex. 121109

BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle acquired via trade with AirForceHops and shared at Woodshed 2.0! Glowing 24 karat pour with a tightly packed ivory foam. Bright orange peel, grapefruit pith, and lemon zest accompanied by saison yeast, brett, and spicy leafy hops. Absolute notes of wet barnyard hay, funk, and mild acidity. Wildly complex...one of the best of the day for sure!

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.
