Prairie Artisan Ales Funky Gold Mosaic
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Prairie Artisan Ales Funky Gold Mosaic - A dry-hopped Sour Ale. I purchased this bottle at Caps & Taps in Dublin. As I’ve said many times before, please visit local shops and support them. The guys at Caps & Taps (here) are really cool and if you go in there tell ‘em you heard about them here.
From the Prairie Artisan Ales website: “Funky Gold Mosaic is a dry-hopped sour ale. We took Prairie Gold and dry-hopped it with a huge amount of Mosaic hops. The end results are tropical, sour, and an all around new beer drinking experience! This beer is great fresh, but will continue to develop as the wild yeast continues to work in the beer.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a pale hazy yellow color with a large white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Tropical and citrus hops, tart, funky, light grains and a slight mineral scent.
Taste: Sour and funky with citrus and tropical notes and finishes with a white wine tartness.
Overall: Crisp and incredibly drinkable, Prairie Artisan Ales Funky Gold Mosaic is delicious. I picked up another bottle of this 6.5% ABV gem to give it a little time in the bottle to see how it evolves, but I’m not sure I can wait. Funky, sour, juicy and just too easy to recommend to fans of the style.
