Mosaic Kettle Sour: Fruity & Fruitless

We have not one but two BC Small Batch Beers hitting the market this week. In addition to Rosé, we’re canning another Beer Hall favorite, Mosaic Kettle Sour.

Summer is ideal for a fruit-forward beer. Mosaic Kettle Sour fits the profile perfectly. Only there’s no fruit.

Our brewers have been trialing kettle sours for a while, hoping to combine the flavor of a dry-hopped IPA with the fruit and funk of a traditional sour. The Mosaic hop, with its citrusy fruit profile, proved to be an ideal complement for the style. It also produced the next beer in our BC Small Batch Series.

“Mosaic Kettle Sour has these mango and pineapple-y aromatics, it tastes tart and fruity, and there is zero fruit in it,” says Head Brewer Ben Smith. “The Mosaic dry-hopping, combined with Saccharomyces Trois fermentation, produces a funky, tart beer.”

(Beer nerd aside: Saccharomyces Trois is a popular yeast strain in NE IPAs.)

The end result is a beer that is perfect for a hot summer day. The long-range forecast says you’ll have a chance to see for yourself.

PARTICULARS:

  • Dry, refreshing, and tart with a hint of bitterness for a clean finish.
  • 5.5% ABV.
  • The Mosaic adds citrus along with an earthy, grassy characteristic.
  • Hints of lemon, lime, and mango.

Look for Mosaic Kettle Sour (and Rosé) in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and the Chicago area beginning the week of July 2.
