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.

Super hazy golden coloured body with a nice, robust four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, biscuits, light yeast, some wort, a hint of funk from the brett and yeast strain and a dose of floral and grassy hops - nice and robust throughout the nose. Light-bodied; Strong effervescence; Pungent malt and grassy flavours at first with a big dose of grain, yeast, hay, flowers and more dry notes, but the hops finally show through at the end, as does some of the sour or funky kick (sour might be too far with this one). Aftertaste is very dry and incredibly floral with some hop notes and mellow tart notes the only things that deviate from the grass/hay dryness in the palate. Overall, a good beer and respectable throughout, but there is nothing here that makes this great or worth going out of your way to find, nor spend this kind of money on. Also, this should be categorised as a Saison and definitely not a wild/sour. Good to try, but probably not so much, when I look at how much I spent for this one. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Spec's Liqour in Dallas, Texas on 01-September-2015 for US$9,99 sampled at home in Washington a bit more than two years later on 20-October-2017.

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.

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).
