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.

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.

My Bottom Line:
White pepper is sprinkled onto a bounty of juicy tropical fruit in this otherwise and dry and prickly creation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam slowly dissipates into the misty pale gold.
-Mild acidity garnishes the fruity finish.
-Drinkability is high.
-Tropical fruit flavors are reminiscent of passionfruit, pineapple, starfruit, etc.

Bottle @home (rating backlog). Pours yellow, hazy, very slight white head. Nose is pineapple, grapefruit, passion-fruit. Taste is grapefruit, mango, big pineapple, its juicy its like a fruit salad.

Not quite as blown away by Funky Gold Mosaic as others, partly because I’m not finding a huge depth of flavor beyond the tartness and funk, partly because I’m going through a phase where I’m bored with sours in general. Still, it’s drinkable as all hell, citric tartness meshing with a mild cracker malt base and some growing barnyard notes on the back end. Mosaics add mild vegetal, tropical and berry hints on the finish, and there’s a floral bitterness that just barely peeks through the sour curtain. Gets better as it warms, but I’m still not totally in love. Massive tart aroma reeking of funk and citrus. Texture’s spot-on, boisterous and sparkly. Probably too low in my score, but I’m just not feeling this pint right now. Oh well.

Bomber, pours a lemon colored pour with an ephemeral white head. Nos is deep sweet tropical fruit with softer resin and pine. Taste is bittersweet citrus with mild tartness ....packed with flavor. Finishes on the same bittersweet tropical notes.....stunning ale. Quaff Score 8 / 10.......9-3-8-4-18

Well this is nice. Cloudy golden-yellow. Big hoppy nose, tropical fruit, sweat socks, bretty funk.Flavor similar, bone dry with a nice grassy hop bite, mild tartness, good funk. Champagne like notes.

jefcon (1921) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Wow -- tons of fruit. Apricot, pineapple, golden raisins and all kinds of spices. As a fresh bottle, this balances spicy yeast elements with a distinctive single hop. Hard to do, even with Mosaics.

Bottle - Bright fresh pink grapefruit. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Funky bright grapefruit and a clean finish. Nice.

Kapsel is drinking a Funky Gold Mosaic (2016) by Prairie Artisan Ales Dużo mosaica, funky klimaty, lekkie, bdb

CaptainTilven (193) - Nancy, FRANCE - JUN 17, 2017
Dégustée à température de 7 à 8,5°C. Corps jaune doré voilé; mousse blanche peu abondante et fugace. Parfums envoûtants de fleur de houblon, pomme acide, fruits exotiques (lychee, ananas), pêche, levure, herbe. Acidité prononcée, funky assurément; sèche (finale un peu âpre) mais pas rustique; longueur assez moyenne; beaucoup de fruité (agrumes frais).

monkeychugg55 (1105) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Very hazy yellow with a small white head. Funky aroma with citrus zest and brett. There is a bit of a crackery malt character too. The flavor is somewhat tart, with a little lemon zest and a dry finish.
