Enjoyed out of a dark brown 750 mL bottle with no discernible freshness or bottling date. Poured into a small Belgian-style tulip glass.
Appearance - Body is a golden amber color with yellow highlights. Atop rests a stark white head about a finger thick, soft and pillowy. Retention is solid, with moderate to light lacing.
Smell - Tropical fruits, with pineapple and mango, as well as some sweetness, like fresh-baked King's Hawaiian bread. Hops come through with some gentle floral notes as well. There are some citrus elements as well, but the tropical and sweetness seem to drown them out.
Taste - A blending of round, bready yeast and more fruity notes. The Bruery house yeast seems to be present here, as I'm reminded of aspects of Saison Rue and 5 Golden Rings. Now the citrus takes the lead and the tropical elements fade back to a complementary role. Finish brings in some pungent but fleeting bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied and moderate carbonation, with a drying finish.
Overall, an excellent beer. Hits on all the notes you expect from a good Belgian Strong Pale Ale and provides that characteristic Bruery flavor profile. Were the opportunity to present itself, I would gladly drink this one again. As the Bruery is hard to get in Kansas City without an online purchase, I'm unlikely to go out of my way to get this one.
