Following the success of Schell’s Fresh Hop Citra Pils last year, the oldest family-owned brewery in Minnesota will release the first in a series of fresh hop pilsners during prime hop harvesting season.
The first Fresh Hop Pilsner in the series will be a single-hop pilsner using Mosaic hops, which they say are “floral, tropical, fruity, earthy, and sweet” with notes of “blueberry, mango, lemon, lime, other citrus, pine, fruit punch, herbs, spice, stone fruit, mint, bubblegum, and black pepper.” Whew! Mosaic indeed.
This is going to be a very limited brew with only 100 barrels being made and distributed in 6-packs and 1/6 barrel kegs. Be on the lookout for release dates in the coming months.
