What the brewers say

N/A

What our panel thought

Aroma: ”Fruity. Strong citrus with orange, tangerine, and a bit of lemon balm. There’s pineapple and spruce down under all of that, followed by some onion, garlic, and slight green pepper. There’s some sweetness, but not too much.”

Flavor: “Fairly dry despite the sweet aroma. Assertive bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Hops flavor is strong but much simpler: big spruce/pine with a little grapefruit in the aftertaste. There’s some hops astringency, too, with moderate esters. But the bitter hops are the center of attention.”

Overall: “Good balance of tropical- citrus hops aromatics and flavors with some subtle earthy and pine notes. Everything I want a beermosa to be. Drinks super easy, but dries out, making me want another sip.”
