4.65/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Deep reddish-copper color with cream colored 2-finger head. Medium head retention.
Very lively on the nose, starting with the Citra hops and exposing the Mosaic as the beer opens up in the glass. Fresh pine sap and pine needles, citrus zest, mango, guava, papaya, light spice.
The palate is redolent of guava, cantaloupe, citrus zest, pineapple, light resin and a bitterness that is made gentle and smooth by all the fruit.
Medium+ bodied with a long smooth finish. The bitterness is well balanced and holds the flavors on the palate.
This is really well made. I hope Mosaic holds the public's interest and generates a lot of demand, because it really brings a lot to the party in a beer. This is definitely a must-try beer!
