Growler purchased from the Bruery last weekend for sixteen dollars, ended up drinking this with friends Monday night, poured into my Duvel tulip glass, this beer is described as "a citrusy, spiced, oaked Golden Strong Ale," I thought I saw up on the board that this is 8.5% ABV but I could be off which is why I did not input the alcohol content with the beer, light golden orange color, 1 1/4 inch white foamy head, some very good retention, lacing for a good amount of time too, aroma consists of a ton of oranges, sweet yeast, white pepper, coriander, other citrus, sage, oak, and fruity malts, flavor starts off sweet with orange and lemon attacking the palate, sweet almost Belgian-like yeast with a hefty amount of coriander in the middle, citrus does not back down in the finish, wet oak provides a nice dry parallel to all the fruit and spice flavors, sweet, spicy, and citrusy mouthfeel, medium bodied, low to moderate level of carbonation, taste lingers well with citrusy sweetness, I had a few glasses of this and that is saying a lot for a beer of this strength, smooth and not too sweet or spicy, cheers to Kyle and the Bruery staff producing such a unqiue and zesty beer, it molds several different spices with oranges quite well, would drink again, recommended

Shared by Thorpe the other night while we watched some football. This beer is not currently on the best of style list for Belgian Strong Pale ale.
Beer served in a Bruery tulip because I am the man (actually it was Thorpe's glass).
Beer is yellow with a mild haze and a wispy little head, minimal lacing, low carbonation, looks fine.
Aroma is sweet and mildly citrusy, floral and spice.
Beer is light in body and pretty sweet. It is nice throughout but not as complex as I hoped for. I can and will drink another but it is a little boring.

Thank you, Andrew. 2011 Provisions release clocking in at 10% ABV.
Pouring a mildly hazy copper, this beer has a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. The nose has plenty of yeasty, fruity esters, with the added citrus kinda dominating the mix. Moderate spice character is present as well, and the oak is rather big, buttery and vanillin heavy. Mild to moderate honey sweetness is present along with a moderate alcohol note. The spice character seems like a blend of clove and nutmeg with a dash of cinnamon thrown in. Decent.
The palate is a lot brasher and boozier than the nose would suggest. A robust alcohol character is present, lightening the body, and enhancing the oak. Flavor-wise, there's some citrus (orange peel), a mellow blend of spices (it's hard to discern with the rather high booziness and heavy handed use of oak and some honey. The oak character is just too much, rather raw, medium-light toast, with some buttery notes as well as a rather high amount of oak flavors and a little vanillin. As for malts, there's a pleasant, enjoyable toffee and caramel character as well. Medium in body with a very nice level of carbonation, this beer is just too boozy and too oaky for it's own good. On the bright side, it doesn't quite taste like the lumber yard that Acer Quercus was, but that's not setting a very high bar, is it? Still, this is drinkable, and I'll probably finish this bottle, but I feel no need to revisit, especially at the cost.
