Mosaic Once Again...

Tasting Notes:

Color:  Orange.  Opaque.  Nice white head.

Aroma:   I get the fruity/blueberry up front, the bubble gum, then a slight hint of dry grass.  The grass aroma could also be described as grain like...something I get from Mosaic not from the malt.  In a fresh bag of pellets this aroma is there....I may not be describing it right but it's there.

Mouthfeel:   This beer is soft.  Drinks easy and finishes dry.  The carbonation pops at the end.  This beer really does it for me.  For me these type of beers drink best with a little higher carbonation...the perceived sweetness blends better.

Flavor:   I get a mix of berry fruits.  The bubblegum and dry grass/grain like flavor seem to both come at once as it finishes with the soft bitterness accentuated by the carbonation.

Overall:   This beer came out good and I enjoy it.  I feel it represents Mosaic's aroma and flavor.  Having had this side by side with the previous Citra beer, I can say I like this beer better.  The aroma is not as strong as Citra but more pleasant to me; the flavor rounded and accessible.  The Citra harsher and lingering.  My previous attempts at a Mosaic beer didn't come out this nice.
