If you're used to your XPAs presenting in the manner of the country's biggest-selling version, this isn't that. Sure, it's still a reasonably pale, pretty lean, fruity beer, but this announces itself in way that's likely to stir you from even the deepest of daydreams.
Crack a can and tip it into a glass and you're met first by an aroma familiar to anyone who's just picked up a fresh bag of hydro before Mosaic’s distinctive berry / blackcurrant character makes itself abundantly known – with a dash of citrus zest for good measure. It's not too much of an exaggeration to say it fair explodes out of the can leaving a multicoloured lightning streak like that on the label in its wake.
It pours a little darker in colour than many XPAs you'll have come across too, with those malts adding an extra sweetness to those fruit flavours in a really quite lovely beer.
