A Note on This Beer
The inventive flavor wizards at Illuminated have such a cult following in Chicago, anytime they release a new brew, craft fans go bonkers. When they debuted their new orange juice-infused Mugwump Brunch Sour Ale at a local fest, they blew through their stash in no time flat!
Inspired by mimosas but designed by juicy beer masters, this citrusy, double dry-hopped Sour Ale is making Untappd fans ditch their typical brunch booze. Like @Jeff B. who says “100x better than an actual mimosa.”
Move over Minute Maid -- get a whiff of these enticing, bright and tangy citrus aromas rising off your glass! Super carbonation reminds us of those tight champagne bubbles on the tongue. The crisp, puckering acidity of the Kettle Sour base then merges with the bold, rich citrus flavor of the orange juice and hints of melon, making this a Sour fan’s ideal bubbly companion.
Even in their Windy City home, Illuminated remains elusive to locals who seek their super-fruity, small-batch creations. Leaving their turf for the first time, Tavour members are the only lucky ducks to taste this next level beermosa -- and you don’t even need to go to Chicago.
*Just like champagne, expect this highly carbonated brew to get fizzy real fast once you pop it open.
