Year of New Beer: Mosaic Promise, Founders Brewing (MI)

Written By: Dion on 09/25/2014

999 straight days of trying a beer I've never had before, and this one is awesome. Seeing distribution only in Michigan, NYC, and Chicago, I'm lucky to get my hands on this! The nose is dank, juicy hops. Bitter red grapefruit and summer ragweed, with a solid dose of catty boxwood. On the tongue, the fruit is crisp and sharp, with an almost tart, unripened white grape giving way to a scathing dry hop bite, with traces of honey and a cracker malt. This is an outstanding way to showcase the single Mosaic hop.
