Eureka W/ MosaicEureka W/ Mosaic
Notes: A delicate yet pungent showcase for Mosaic hops, this riff on our favorite blonde ale has just the pale malt bill in common with her sister beer, Eureka. Delicate and pleasantly hoppy, with aromatic and flavorful notes of fleshy papaya, orange juice, and mango, you'll have a hard time believing this one is so sessionable. Refined and bright, this is the perfect beer for any occasion. We are absolutely in love with the Mosaic edition!

canned 08/02/2019

This is a beautiful beer. It pours a light hazy yellow with a towering pure white head. The head recedes to a thin film leaving a few patches of lacing. The nose is sweet fruits reminiscent of guava, mango, and papaya. On the palate the beer starts out with the fruit flavors from the nose, but less sweet. It's balanced quite nicely with some catty dankness. The mouthfeel overall light as it should be. Carbonation is moderate. This beer is as drinkable as it is flavorful. Just a great job by Treehouse making near perfect session beer. I have buyer's regret in that I didn't purchase more than the 4 cans I can home with. Highly recommended.

It pours a hazy dandelion-esque yellow with a nice creamy head of a couple fingers. It ends up pretty much dissipating and leaves some scattered lacing. There's a big tropical-citrus aroma right out of the can. Grapefruit, guava, a hint of resinous pine, old mango, white bread. The flavor is crisply bitter without much (if any) of the fruitiness found in the smell, flat hop bite with some neutral malt underneath. It is very drinkable and pretty crisp and dry compared to some of their other beers, with medium carbonation. It is definitely not a to-style Blonde, but is not as far from that as I thought it would be. I would say that its real accomplishment is that it manages to drink like a Blonde, a Mosaic showcase and a TH beer all at once. Very nice little beer. I'd gladly have another. Thanks a ton, Pope o' silliness.

Traded for this a while ago at Other Half, finally getting around to it today. Even though the alcoholic content of this was 4.2%, I'm pretty sure that this only had Mosaic in it as the bottom of the can was dated 7/26/17 with "MO MONEY" above it with "MOSAIC" written below it; leading me to believe that that was the only hop used in the brewing of this beer. It tasted like one would expect, with lots of earthy funk, forest, lemon zest, and light spice with a citrus slickness and lightness to the body...

Not a bad pour to this as the beer was a muted goldenrod, cloudy, and topped off with plenty of frothy head. That took a while to unevenly settle, as the lacing left behind was mostly in the form of thin rings. A ton of dank and woodsy hops, lemon, tangerine juice, and funk filled the muted nose as they all came out more prominently in the taste. Lots of slickness here as this was smooth for something that felt so heavy, as the malt was basic and the carbonation could have been turned up a notch or two. This almost felt like a Lager because of how light and skunky it came across as but in the end, this was an American Blonde Ale that was turn to form.

At the same time, it was also a session beer. Not what I expected from Tree House but given how old it was, there was little sediment at the bottom of the glass and plenty to like here once the Wild Ale-like taste grew on me. Not typical but not a winner at the same time - this beer was just enough of an aberration from Tree House's norm to hold me in until the last sip...

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

This beer pours a turgid, murky golden color with a two finger, fluffy white head. The retention is moderate and there are a decent amount of chunky patches of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is a tropical and citrus bouquet. Mango, grapefruit, orange and papaya all burst out of the glass with an underlying layer of earthiness lurking in the background.

Taste is the same. Starts off very bright and fruity, then mid sip the earthiness and grapefruit kick in providing a moderate amount of bitterness, then there is a bit of a wheat like twang on the finish.

Feel is soft and delicate. Very smooth until a little bit of prickliness comes in on the finish.

Overall this is a great beer. A very sessionable beer from Tree House without sacrificing any of their patented hoppy goodness.

This is the best blonde I have had to date. There is the wheat earthy flavor in the background but the mosaic hops dominate this beer. They mix perfectly with the body and grains. The mouthfeel is creamy (likely from the oats). This is very well done, nice work Tree House.

A 1 pint can, canned on 26th July 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow colour with a big three finger frothy white head that had decent retention and left some nice sticky lacing.

Aroma: Under ripe mango, apricot and pineapple followed by citrus rind, grapefruit, melon, grass and pine.

Taste: Mango and apricot with strong orange rind, lemon zest and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Body is heavier than expected, but much like the Citra version, it was very nice and refreshing with lots of tropical and citrus fruitiness.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours hazy straw with peach highlights and a cloud of yeast. The one half inch creamy white head quickly turns rocky before receding to sticky lace on a Spiegelau IIPA glass.

It looks like it should be lemony and each sip tricks me. Rather it smells of apricots and cut grass. Warmth draws out a hint of latex.

The flavor is not quite tropical, not quite mango. The beer seems to test my flavor references while lemon does seem to be present, it doesn't seem trustworthy. It is bitter, yet controlled by sweetness. The finish is mild and quick with a hint of cut grass. I want to say the flavors are fresh, but yet they are not quite so.

A medium body and satin texture, there is no hint of alcohol. This beer is similar to what I imagine a beer spritzer might be. It is astringently dry!

Eureka is a good, sessionable, hoppy beer. I enjoyed it on a humid summer afternoon while listening to bugs buzz, chirp and hum in high pitches. This beer paired well with the lazy Sundays we look forward to when it is bitingly cold in February.

Opaque, vibrant yellow with a large white foam that quickly recedes to an uneven, fluffy fuzzy foam collar.

Smell is spicy, piney yeast, orange zest, biscuit and corn milk.

Taste is spicy, peppery and minty with softening biscuit, orange, and a mildly bitter finish of pine bark.

Exceedingly soft but thin with a chalky, semi-dry finish.

16oz can dated 8/31/17.

Pours cloudy yellow with a short head and minimal retention. Aromatics are less than pungent but still a decent amount of tropical fruit. Shades of pear, peach, and pineapple. A bit dank. Light bodied with a crisp but moderately creamy and soft mouthfeel. Citrus with biscuity undertones on the palate. Quite dry with a minimal bitterness. Grapefruit with peach skins and a hint of tropical pith. Finishes dry with lingering citrus and some faint throat burn.

One of the tastiest 4.1% beers I've had and certainly would be a great summer drinker if not so difficult to obtain.

A - beautiful golden blonde hazy color with a lumpy white head that sticks and leaves okay lacing

M - light, alcohol covered, aftertaste is citrus rind.
O - great beer, huge mosaic notes. Similar beer would be Lizard King by Pipeworks Brewery.

definitely a refreshing, lighter ale from tree house. piney with a hint of lime in the overall scent. from a taste perspective you get the piney freshness on the nose, it then progresses to a more sour citrus middle, followed by a strong hoppy finish. very drinkable. great summer beer.

Super fresh beer that will blow your mind. This lives up to the juicy IPAs that treehouse is known for, and is a great addition to the lineup. Tastes like a session version of Focal Banger. Definitely could be an alchemist beer. I wish we got more than 2 cans.

The smell is the best part of this beer. Bright and crisp smell of mosaic hops from the crack of the can. Taste is crisp, but not all that exciting. Hops are definitely present but the malt just doesn't provide a decent backbone. It's light and enjoyable, a great easy drinking beer, but I'm not looking for an easy drinking beer from Tree House. If this was easy to get I'd be thrilled with it, but that's not the case. I'm really disappointed with this beer.

This beer pours a beautiful hazy pale yellow with a nice head but not much head retention. The smell is bread with a tropical mango, orange nose. The taste is just as nice as the nose. I'm getting the mango and orange, maybe even a slight hint of some melon. The mouthfeel is a bit on the light side which is to be expected with this beer as it is made for a multiple beer day. The bottom of the can says it all for this beer, "life's a beach!". This one is perfect for the beach on a hot summer day.

16 oz. can. Hazy orange. Smells of doughy malts, some citrus, and a little bit of banana? Tastes of a more dynamic hop flavor. Orange and a little tropical. Light garlic bite. Grainy and doughy. Has that banana flavor in the finish again. Light body. Very drinkable. Not sure where the banana is coming from, but it’s otherwise nice.
