4.9/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
Bottle #077/450, poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.
Pour: Hazy, glowing orange with two and a half fingers of white, foamy head. Head hangs around for a while, and leaves some great sticky lacing. Definitely a radiant looking beer.
Smell: Huge burst of orange juice and funk up front. A nice clean bit of lactic tartness comes through in the middle. A distinct bready, saison quality provides some depth. Nose ends with more of the recognizable Hill Farmstead funk.
Taste: Starts with fresh squeezed orange juice and orange peel, and immediately mixes with a lactic tartness and some barnyard funk. A doughy sweetness in the middle. A really light white pepper and a tough of oak. Finishes with a lactic orange tartness and some more funk.
Mouthfeel: Insanely drinkable. Really refreshing, and incredibly juicy. Not particularly dry, but there is some character there from the oak. Pretty tart, but not sour.
Overall: Mimosa definitely exceeded my expectations, and they were pretty high to begin with. Not the best Hill Farmstead I’ve had yet, but pretty close. It reminds me of Art with loads of oranges.

750ml bottle #179/450 poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.
A~ glowing light orange that goes from a dark coppery orange hue at the top and slowly fads to a glowing neon orange at the bottom. nice fluffy white head and a real lot of lacing.
S~ crazy citrus, soooo much orange! along with pineapple, lemon, lime, and a little bit of grapefruit. followed by a nice hop presence which i'm surprised is still there and which also definitely adds to the citrus. everything leads into some nice peppery saison yeast.
T~ holy yessss! follows the nose with overwhelming citrus all around! some bitterness from the hops crash your pallet with amazing over tones. followed by some wheat characteristics, peppery, bready yeast that all seem to come back to the best orange juice ever! finishing up with some nice lemony oak wine barrel tartness which i'm sure has matured since the release. oh and no booze at all for 10%!
M~ soooo smooth and amazingly refreshing. has that pineapple juice feel that reminds me of Juicy. oh... i don't think i have to say it but the carbonation is outstanding!
O~ yup i had high expectations and they were still exceeded. amazing brew all around! that mouth feel of pineapple juice aka Juicy is so in your face that its literally like this beer was made with half Juicy and half of an actual mimosa haha. best saison i've ever had? yeah i'd say so lol we can prey that they release it again cause i definitely won't get another bottle but you all know it won't be the same! HA!
