Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Yellow Session. Aroma has really dank hops with sweet vanilla malt notes. Taste is sweet, dank, juicy and fruity.

Aroma: Guava passionfruit
Taste: Bright mosaic, straight Trillium Melcher, a bit of hop zing, pineapple juice, grapefruit zest. One of the best beers I had at the brewery and better than Juice Box.

On tap at the brewery.

A mildly hazy light orange with a white head that falls off rapidly leaving little lacing this looks solid. The nose is super juicy with passionfruit, papaya , mango and peach, in that order. Minimal malt character. The palate opens with gobs of juicy hops, with passionfruit, papaya, mango , a little guava and a back end of peach and orange. Unabashedly juicy with minimal bitterness, there's a mild aspirin like astringency present. Sweet and juicy on the finish with a lingering fruit juice character, this beer is light in body and moderately carbonated. Enjoyable.

Soft, round, some chew + oil. 4

Mosaic

Huge botanical freshness. Danker as it warms. These two things made the happy Mosaic fruit a whole lot more interesting. Turbid, NE, fresh - I’m all in. 4.5

cloudy, light brown/orange, no head

nice, well-balanced with good malt base, better when warmer
deep thick resiny hops, but not over the top
better towards room temperature

16oz can poured in a can shaped pint glass. Brought home from Oregon by my wife. Dated 10/18/18.

Pours a hazy orange-white with a smallish head and a lot of carbonation. Smell is straight up resin, and a little citrus.

Taste is more of the same, super bright. This beer is excellent.

Mouthfeel is light and effervescent.
