Mischief | 750 ml. | 8.5 % ABV | 2011
Brewer: The Bruery
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale (BSPA)
Gold, but not as deep as most BSPAs. It has a magnificent plume of pillowy foam.
Pear, citrus, pineapple, wild yeast, hops.
It comes across as a very mild BSDA or perhaps a more energetic Belgian pale ale. The slick and oily hops are a distinguishing feature. But the bitterness is cut by candi sugar, and some nice summer fruits.
Medium-bodied but lively and vibrant in the mouth. Strong carbonation.
Mischief is a nice example of a BSPA that breaks from the mold, in this case offering an oilier, hoppier profile than most of its peers. The Bruery has maintained a rough balance of flavors, though, as usual, the balance is skewed.
Would I get it again?:
Maybe. It's good but not my favorite interpretation of the style.
