No bottle date
Poured into a standard tulip.

Appearance: (4)
Pours a very cloudy light orange with yellow highlights. A voluminous, 3 finger tall white head sprout out the beer as soon as it pours. The head has great retention and leaves plenty of lacing behind.

Aroma: (4)
Big, grassy and citrus-y hops upfront; predominately orange blossoms and lemon zest. There is quite a sizable, spicy Belgian yeast presence as to be expected for it's style. Notes of banana, pear and a slight pepperiness. Supporting the yeast and big hop presence(for it's style), is a soft, yet firm slightly sweet, cracker like malt backbone.

Taste: (4.25)
Big, juicy hops upfront akin to the nose; more orange, lemon zest and a distinct grassiness. The Belgian yeast comes into play almost simultaneously with the hops; banana, light green pear and white pepper. The yeast almost takes on a rustic, saison tone, but the slightly sweet, chewy biscuity malt backbone cuts those notes short. Finishes very dry and bitter, with lingering notes of orange blossoms, banana and sweet bread-y malt. The 8.5% alcohol is hidden extremely well.

Mouthfeel: (4)
Light to medium body, with high carbonation.

Overall: (4)
The Bruery takes on the Belgian Golden Strong Ale style and hops it up a bit. This beer is very similar to one of my personal favorites, the notorious Duvel. Mischief reminds me of Duvel with a slightly stronger malt presence married with the hoppiness of Russian River's Defenestration. Highly recommend to someone who whats to try a hopped up Duvel.
