Beer added by: Jason on 01-10-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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. Mimosa was conditioned for 8 months in wine barrels with our resident microflora. 19º Plato 500 icus.

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.

Cracked into a bottle of Mimosa for my 30th birthday with two good friends, sampled as the sun was setting over the lake at my buddy's camp. Not too bad.

This beer is awesome. As with so many of HF's barrel aged saisons, it is a testament to balance and artistry in brewing. I'm an absolute citrus fanatic so this beer is right up my alley from the start....

Appearance: HF saison, golden and glowing. Less head than say an Arthur, fades on the quicker side. Awesome.

Smell: If I could just smell this beer, I'd prefer that over drinking many other beers. Orange, funk, greatness.

Taste: !

Mouthfeel: Great.

Overall: I can't imagine much else better than this. I'll make every attempt to get more and more of this beer. Here's hoping either this beer is brewed again, or some other Imperial saison with citrus addition is crafted by Shaun Hill and the team at HF.

Like others have said, this beer is like a ramped up Juicy. Just perfect, and it's aging VERY well.

Big thanks to codysjb for acquiring this bottle for me. Review written from sparse notes.

The appearance is flawless. A large 2 finger foamy head is present that leaves heavy lacing. The color is a golden opaque orange. Carbonation is visually evident.

The smell is very inviting and complex. I easily detect citrus, yeast and barrel wood. It's exciting to detect very different aromas from a wild brew.

The flavor matches the nose. There is light citrus, wine barrel notes and a bit of tart yeast. There is no detectable alcohol in the flavor, but the effects are felt.

The feel is light and a crispy, dry finish.

I loved this brew. Sure, this is far from typical for the style, but it is the best and most enjoyable that I have had. The complexity is very enjoyable and much appreciated. Other wild or farmhouse brews that I've had which were aged in white wine barrels did not produce barrel notes in the nose, nor palate, which were detectable. Excellent work by Hill Farmstead.

Had @ the HF Festival of Farmhouse Ales. Pours a slightly-cloudy golden-peach with a huge, fluffy white head. Fantastic retention and loads of sticky lacing as it falls to a nice cap. The nose starts off with orange peel and is quickly followed up with some light straw and earth. Brett is working wonders here. Some notes of white wine and oak in the background. Aside from orange peel, there’s some other light tropical fruit on the finish. Faint tartness also follows through to the finish after a smidgen of oak and wine. Body is light and über refreshing. Finish has a very subtle tartness along with citrus zest and some earth. Bit of tart cherry. Very crisp and dry. Overall, simply a fantastic beer.

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!

Reviewing the infamous Mimosa from the Hill Farmstead Brewery out of Greensboro Bend, Vermont.

Score: 98

Winter 2011-12 vintage, bottle #047/450. served in a Cantillon wine glass and enjoyed on 05/10/14.

Appearance: Pours a murky, orange color body with a light fade to yellowish-orange atop. Pours a half finger of white head that settles to a thin coating. The beer has a nice color, for what little that matters. 4.5/5

Smell: Wine and orange citrus dominate the nose. This beer smells just like a mimosa mixed with some straw and a kiss of a fruity yeast aroma. 4.5/5

Taste: Super juicy citrus without being overly acidic mixed with mildly tannic white wine. Light farmhouse funk/Brett on the finish, particularly as it warms up. A touch of pepper on the finish too. More complex than the nose, developing as it warms. Good, lasting flavor. Tastes just likes its namesake, with delectable complexity and saison-like characteristics coming through on the finish. 5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, appropriate medium carbonation. Unreasonably juicy mouthfeel, with a very light dryness to the finish. Not very tart, but not "not tart enough." Excellent balance, really digging the sheer juiciness of this mouthfeel. 5/5

Overall: Tastes like a mimosa spiked with saison characteristics on the finish. Refreshing, flavorful, and complex for what it is. This beer is a marvelous interpretation of its namesake, and the perfect token of Hill Farmstead's competence, talent and ingenuity when everything goes right. If you want to know why Hill Farmstead beers are so highly regarded and sought after, look no further than this brew.

Cost: $20 for a 750 ml bottle.

Review from old notes:

Poured into a snifter.

Appeared a golden/orange color with a thick perfectly white head.

Smelled of orange rind, fresh squeezed orange juice, a bit of barnyard/cheesy funk, and some earthy notes.

Tasted like a beer-mosa. Whoa, thats why they call it this. Delicious. Champagne and orange juice backed by a tart sourness.

Mouthfeel was a bit of everything...tart, refreshing, bubbly, and puckering.

Overall it is delicious and I am sad I will likely never have this again.

***Review #900***

Picked this up at the release, bottle number 379/450. Been waiting for this bad boy...

A - The bottle was a slow gusher, pours a nice crystal clear light golden hue with a good one finger creamy white head that leaves good side lacing and a nice creamy light blanket.

S - The orange isnt quite as prominant as I thought it would be, or was led to believe. I'd heard this smelled like orange juice and champagne, which, it does just not too too strong. There are light grapes, barrels. Super inviting though.

T - Okay, so yah...yep, this is a mimosa. Lots of tart, sour oranges. Wasnt expecting this level or sourness, but its delicious. So much like orange juice, with a great champagne type finish and background flavour. There are some nice earthy oak barrel notes, as well as some slightly strongish yeast notes as well. The brett is coming along nicely.

M - Mouthfeel is delicious , tart, lightly sour. Great carbonation. Drinks just like a mimosa. Where is the abv!?!?

O - Overall this is worth every bit of glory this beer gets. Its amazing what Shaun Hill repeatedly puts out. Almost mind meltingly good.

Poured into some Hill Farmstead stemware. Cloudy orange body with a good amount of frothy white head. Leaves beautiful lacing on the glass. The aroma is filled with sweet and bitter orange zest, grassy citrus-laced hops and some earthy hay notes. Light brett funk underneath the citrus. This flavor is... wow. So many things going on, but the notes flow in a smooth linear fashion. Earthy wheat mixed with dry brett notes and hoppy bitterness hit the tongue first. Then waves of juicy orange, some booze take the spotlight before fading back to a dry, crisp, earthy finish with a touch of citrus peel bitterness. Carbonation is spot on and the body fits perfectly for this big, bold, saison. Even at 10%, this goes down pretty easy. Excellent. Love the brett and citrus. Definitely seek this one out.

Second and last bottle of this gem. About 10 months old at this point and starting the night off for my 1000th review celebration, this is #998.

Bottle bomb foams up and gets all over the table. I guess that isn't a total surprise with some wild bugs in a brew.

A- Poured into five pint glasses for a tasting with a big foamy white head. The head forms to a huge size and has nice retention. Body is a golden orange with a fair amount of haziness going on. Tons of thick lace all around the glass in random patches.

S- A big blast of white wine, orange zest, orange juice, saison yeast, lemons and tart hints. You can tell there is individual elements from yeast, barrels, wine, wild bugs and added fruit but it all blends very nicely.

T- The citrus, wine and funky bugs all show up very nicely still with a bit of age. Massive orange and lemon flavors, which remind me of both the flesh and the zest of each. The wine from the barrels is very apparent with white wine, grape and oak notes. A great level of tartness is here and there is just a bit of barnyard, spicy/grassy funky flavors. Saison yeast rounds it all out with more spicy, peppery and fruity hints.

MF- Light and dried up body sort of reminiscent of a lambic or Gueuze. Carbonation has that foamy feel but is crisp and goes nicely with the flavors at hand. Big tartness and some spicy bitterness (like citrus rind tends to be) in the finish.

Very complex with a huge range of influence. It seems like citrus flavors come from the fruit, wild bugs and the saison yeast which rules. I really like how the wine flavors work into the mix too. A Hill Farmstead brew to really remember.

Nick is awesome. Thanks for sharing!

Pour is nothing shy of gorgeous. Tons of lace, beautiful head. Nose is delicate and complex: truly smells like a mimosa. Orange and champagne both come through.

Taste is meticulously crafted. Similar to the nose, there are plenty of subtleties here. Again, it reminds me distinctly of drinking a mimosa.

Lots of carb matches the beer's goal but isn't really my thing. Regardless, this is a fantastic achievement by one of the world's best breweries.

Thanks to Thorpette for insisting that we open this one. Served in Hill Farmstead stemware.

Bottle 124/450

Pours a slightly-cloudy golden-peach with a huge, fluffy white head. Fantastic retention and loads of sticky lacing as it falls to a nice cap.

The nose starts off with orange peel and is quickly followed up with some light straw and earth. Just a touch of cherry in the background. The Brett is working wonders here. Some notes of wine and oak in the background.

Flavor keeps things on the same level with some beautiful and complex Brett notes. Aside from orange peel, there's some light tropical fruit and a dusting of pineapple. Faint tartness follows through to the finish after a smidgen of oak and wine.

Body is light and über refreshing. Finish has a very subtle tartness along with citrus zest and some earth. Bit of tart cherry. Very crisp and dry.

Overall, simply a fantastic beer. The only thing I can say is that Shaun has done it yet again. Phenomenal.

2011 Vintage Bottle 157/450

A: Murky golden color with a bright white head that is holding up beautifully.

S: A culmination of super funk, citrus (tons of orange) and acidity.

T: A brilliant showcase of citrus up in the front; as the citrusy flavors begin to subdue, a mellow tartness begins to emerge; the finish is brings to light subtle oak and wine characteristics.

M: Light carbonation with a creamy/soft medium body.

O: This beer just slinked its way into my top 5 all time favorites. Every aspect of this beer is huge, and they all blend together in perfect harmony; this beer is the definition of equilibrium.

Shaun Hill, if you read this, I thank you dearly for this brilliant creation.

This is a game changer for me. Most "wild" beers that I've tried have a lightness too them. A slight effervescence if you will. Mimosa is deep and complex.

A rich and decadent beer that pours a heavy golden amber color with a nice tightly bubbled head. Fumes of intense and juiciest citrus roll into the nose accompanied by the scent of freshly cut grass from what I assume is the Funky yeast. It's powerful and intense.

As far as the taste goes it is a brilliant balance of the wine barrel, the citrus (which to me tatstes like tangerines) and the "wild". Just and explosion of juicey taste coming at you again and again. It's sweet, it's savory, it's smooth . . . It's a fantastic offering. Bravo Hill Farmstead.

Big thanks to the best BA in all of the IC Husker Mike. Maybe we need to call him Hawkeye Mike due to his attire change last night?

This is a total taste mindfuck. Because on the front end you get funk and then on the backend you get citrus on the tip of your tongue even though the beer is halfway down to its destination. Talk about a total screw!

I Liked This Beer Berry Much!

750 ml red wax topped bottle into a few glasses. This was bottled # 313/450. Another big thanks to Stakem for sharing this.

Pours a hazed gold, with a finger of rich and creamy looking bright-white head. This stays robust looking, soaping the sides of the glass with thick foamy lacing. The aroma smells awesome, with orange juice, zesty and earthy Brett notes, crisp wheat, light oak and spicy alcohol all combining here in a way that I wasn’t expecting.

The taste is delicious orange flavor, with a zesty tart bite from the Brett and an equally tart wheat character across the back. The alcohol is very complimentary here to the other flavors, with a warm spiciness that bring it all together. The finish is dry and tannic with a little bit of lingering earthy tartness on the end. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a gentle crispness on the tongue and a smooth creaminess that fills out the rest of the mouth. The ABV on this is just incredibly well hid, giving this a ridiculously smooth feel that I can hardly believe is as big as it is. Very well done!

I don’t really know what my expectations for this Hill Farmstead release were going in but this definitely exceeded them. The way the oranges and alcohol came together really does have this feeling like a mimosa while the Brett, wheat and oak add complimentary notes that round this out nicely. I’d love to have this again. It’s definitely one of the best executed beers that I’ve had from them.

Bottle thanks to Paul. Beautiful opaque and cloudy golden/orange with nice head. Very aromatic nose, everything is well integrated. White wine and citrus at first, and then wheat and bretts. Some leafy hops can be found. Somewhat volatile, the alcohol is definitly present but not too much considering the high abv. Taste is coherent with the aroma with more hoppy bitterness and a solid brett presence. Full bodied and lively carbonation makes it very drinkable for its 10%. Very well executed and unique.

Huge thanks to Deuane for busting out one of his bottles for us to try at the last monthly tasting. Another long time HF want bites the dust!

A - Pours hazy bright orange with a beautiful one and a half finger tall white head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the sides of the glass. Beautiful looking beer.

S - Smells of orange zest, woody oak, bit of wine spritzer, good amount of typical HF saison funk, dash of earthen mineral and some wet hay. Some of the orange has definitely faded away but it still smells amazing.

T - Starts off with a mix of earthen mineral, wet barnyard hay, light funk and oaken wine quickly being joined by the orange zest and pulp and some bready malt helping to back up all of the other flavors. Finish is pretty dry, not lingering for very long after the finish.

M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, juicy feel with some nice backing funky earth that keeps me coming back for more.

O - This has aged beautifully well. The fruit has definitely fallen off a bit but the fruity/funky yeast has made up that gap. I would have loved to have tried this one right when it came out as it is just marvelous right now. Thanks again for the share Deuane!

S - great sweet grapes and berries. Not too complex and no wildness to it.

T - great balance between the sour and sweet. Berries and cherries along with some lime and grapefruit. Only slight funk to it which only adds to the flavor and balance. Wow.

M - great carbonation and body.

O - all around great beer that I will need to get more of.

Shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is golden orange with a soft white head. The aroma brings oranges, orange peel, wild yeast, funk. I thought the flavor was excellent, though I happen to love citrusy beers, especially sours, saisons, IPAs, so perhaps I am biased in favor of this citrus delight. Mild acetic presence. Alcohol presence is masterfully hidden. Highly enjoyable and drinkable. I would love to have this again.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Shared by Evil Jason. Thanks!

A: Pours a hazy golden-straw body. Well carbonated, it produces a frothy off-white head that rises to 2 fingers and leaves sticky lace as it falls.

S: This has the minerally, lemon-zest/hay aroma of brett that couples well with orange rind and a small lactic sourness. A small pepper note.

T: Very orange-forward, both in flesh and rind. Again, there is a light lactic sourness that is more of an accent than anything; it takes a second seat to the brett, which isn't particularly strong either (don't expect the mushroom funk of aged Drie Fonteinen gueuze). Rather, it has a balanced, minerally, hay, earthy flavor that accentuates the citrus rind. White pepper in the finish.

M: This is medium-bodied, with appropriate carbonation. I'd like the beer to be drier; it had some heft to it, but I expect that the beer might dry out as the brett goes to work. But I imagine it needs that body to hide the alcohol (10% WTF?), which was completely undetected.

O: I know the beer people go apeshit about is Ann, but I thought Mimosa was better. Partly because I had in my head that Ann would be a successor to Saison Lambic Pinot Noir (which I loved). I'd say Mimosa was closer to that. The best part is that this was opened late into a tasting where everyone [else] was shitfaced, and they quickly forgot about it in the rush to open more and more rare beer. So I simply kept working on the bottle for a good 30 minutes. I would gladly drink this again at a tasting where someone else brings the bottle and lets me have most of it.

Thank you, Michael.

A mildly hazy orange with a dense, white head with solid retention and lacing, this looks good. The nose is pretty excellent. A very big Brett character, with an intense and dense pineapple character to pair with the oranges, and some tropical fruit (mango). There's some sourness as well. The palate is big, boozy, alcoholic but decidedly fruity with a blend of pineapple, orange and mango, with a refreshing carbonation. Moderately sour with a blend of citric and lactic acids (less lactic, more citric) The yeast does add some mildly spicy notes as well. Crisply carbonated, this beer is too big and too drinkable for its own good. Highly recommended. The orange character is nice and refreshing

750ml bottle dipped in red wax. Bottle # 313/450 shared with friends. Poured into a snifter, the brew appears a hazed golden yellow with a frothy white cap more than a finger strong. A full wall of lace sticks to the glass.

The aroma is bretty and funked that transitions into orange zest and rind. There is a bit of a cheese note coupled with lacto and yogurt. As it warms up, more orange citrus elements come forward with fresh rindy and pulp character accented by a hint of neutral alcohol like vodka. The name of this brew is spot on.

The taste is rindy with fruit, zest and pulp of oranges. The orange inclusion provides a bit of earthy to rindy fruit bitterness mildly like grapefruit but more specifically like orange/tangerine. Quite fruity with the citrus integratin nicely with a mild acidity that is more tart than sour or acidic really.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is really a fresh, unique and inviting take on the american wild style. I would seriously pursue another bottle of this if the cost of admission wasnt so high and it wasnt as sought after as it is. Really fitting of the name and dangerously drinkable. It wasnt until my glass was 4/5 of empty before I noticed the alcohol inclusion was as high as it was.

Bottle shared during Churchill's Renaissance at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of sour and tart citrus fruit (especially orange) and some nice spice aromas. Taste is of sour and tart citrus flavors with a spice presence on the finish. There is an acidic and mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer and quite a nice surprise when I was offered a pour.
