Back Forty’s BamaMosa Is Your New Brunch Buddy

August 07, 2019

By Jesse Bussard, August 07, 2019

Beermosas are stupid-easy to make. Mix beer with some orange juice and, boom, you’re done. If that’s too much hard labor, Birmingham, Alabama’s Back Forty Beer has the shortcut. BamaMosa is a beermosa in a can. This juice-bomb beer cocktail is made by blending a Brut ale with Valencia orange juice. Together, the two work together to create, what Back Forty describes as, “a refreshingly crisp beer that can be enjoyed in almost any setting.”

Appearance and Aroma

BamaMosa pours a light orange hue with an off-white lacey foam that dissipates quickly after pouring. Swirling the beer in my glass, the strong aroma of fresh-squeezed orange juice and a hint of alcohol transport me to Sunday brunch. 

After blazing my way through a four-pack of BamaMosas, I can see why Back Forty says this beer is the fastest selling craft beer brewed in Alabama.”

Flavor

BamaMosa is a cross between Steigl Radler and a Brut IPA. While simple, the juicy orange and citrus flavors hit with an effervescence that gives a fizzy feeling on the tongue. It all goes down with an ultra-dry, crisp finish.

Overall

After blazing my way through a four-pack of BamaMosas, I can see why Back Forty says this beer is the fastest selling craft beer brewed in Alabama. It’s refreshing, flavorful, and poundable AF. At 7% ABV, it’s a tad more dangerous than simply watering down a beer with some OJ. Back Forty’s beers can be found across the Southeast, so if you’re in the vicinity grab a four-pack to share at your next brunch. Your friends will thank you.
