3.99/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an extremely cloudy medium golden yellow in color with some moderate amounts of visible white sediment towards the bottom of the glass, very significant amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass, and some faint hints of lemon yellow + peach highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a two finger tall medium sized cap in the center of the glass, a finger thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pale and bready malts with light to moderate aromas of citrus/lemon and hints of light fruit (melon).

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of pale and bready malts with light amounts of light fruit (melon) sweetness. There are moderate flavors of citrus/lemon hops and some light to moderate flavors of spices + Belgian yeast.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: I found this beer to be pretty interesting - a bit of a hybrid between a Belgian Strong Pale Ale and a Belgian IPA (there is a hoppy presence but it still has that golden Belgian flavor). The alcohol is pretty well hidden and it is relatively easy to drink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From a 750 ml bottle into a wine glass. Reviewed from notes dated August 31, 2013.

A-A normal pour produces over two fingers of dense, white head with good retention. The brew is light-honey/golden in color with a little bit of murky haze. A nice looking brew that is pretty much spot-on for the style.

S-The smell is a nicely balanced mixture of sweet, doughy malt flavors, fruity alcohol, and earthy, lightly-bitter hop flavors. I get suggestions of musty white grape, apricot, and a bit of grapefruit.

T-The taste is a little bit sweeter than the smell, with the sharpness of the hops moving towards the background. I get white grape, apricot, and a bit of white pepper, as well as bready, doughy, pale malts. A nice mixture, but nothing spectacular.

M-The feel is a little thinner than I would expect and there is a watery wetness that doesn't fit entirely with the flavors. Carbonation is moderate.

O-This is a perfectly good, but not great, Belgian style beer. It is good-looking and I like the mixture of fruits on the palate, but I found myself thinking that something about this beer was just sort of, I don't know, blah. Maybe it is the lackluster mouthfeel. Hmmm...Anyway, just because this brew is a little boring doesn't make it a bad beer. In fact, I would readily drink this again, but it is not one that I would go searching after in the future.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled April 30, 2013

Beer is golden in colour, and the pour resukts in a large, thick-looking white head. Very good retention.

Nose contains Belgian yeast and lots of light fruits. The fruit scent is interesting, it seems to come from both the yeast and the hops, which are quite apparent. Fruits are primarily tropical in scent, but other smells come through as well. Pineapple, passionfruit, orange and mango. A slight bit of dry yeast. The smell is much more fruit focused than most BSPAs, without many of the other expected scents, but the fruit scent is really nice.

Flavour wise, the fruit is still there, but the yeast comes out a bit more, and there is a bit of a bubblegum flavour, Lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, passionfruit. Some hoppy bitterness. The yeast provides a bit of a dry spicy flavour, but it is fairly subdued. Good, but the fruit flavours could blend better with the yeast- there is a bit of clash. Alcohol is slightly noticeable in the finish.

Full bodied, super high carbonation level. Too much for me, feels fizzy.

Overall, pretty good, but with some faults. I like the fruit flavours a lot, but the yeast and mat components of an expected BSPA are too subdued, and they don't blend well with the fruits. Still, fairly tasty.

The Beers of California

#92

Freshness Date: None

A: Orange golden with a thick haziness and a pillowy head of small bubbles.

S: Bright and fruity with strong citrus character with a hint of pineapple and banana. There is also flowers and springtime. The yeast comes through on a base of crackers and bread.

T: So bright and full of sunshine. Again there is flowers and leaves paired with citrus zest. Some pineapple and banana esters and plain-o yeastiness bring interest to the palate. The malt base is grainy with a cracker lightness with a hint of caramel.

M: Light with a good amount of carbonation. A refreshing beer.

O: A solid American style Belgian ale. The Bruery excels here with a refreshingly hoppy ale with strong yeastiness that adds fruity ester complexity.

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a snifter. Purchased in Attleboro, MA.

A- Pours a pretty hazy, somewhat dull straw colored body with a fluffy white head that reduces slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S- Pretty tropical and fruity, aromas of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. There's definitely a bold hop zing in there too.. resinous and piney.

T- Hm.. pretty interesting. Starts off kind of sweet, with the caramel, light malts combining with the belgian fruit which were present in the aroma. The finish is very hoppy, leaving an astringent, resinous stickyness. There's a solvent-like ethanol aftertaste.

M- Somewhat watery. Medium-low carbonation.

I was moderately impressed with this beer. Definitely worth a try, though, as it is complex and unique.

A: Hazy light orange with a HUGE fluffy head that leaves beautiful lacing. Impressive looking beer.

S: Hmm. Citrus and juicy fruit right off the bat. A sweet hawaiin bread. Overly ripe orange and some pine. Good hop character. Then it changes. Funky yeast and spice begin to creep in. A blend of an ipa and a belgian ale. Interesting.

T: Right off the bat the belgian style takes hold. Funky bread, a dry yeast and more of that sweet hawaiian bread. Toffee begins to play with orange in the middle mouth before pine, earth and spice dominate. The finish is a very tart apple. The hop flavors are there but the bite is missing.

M: Great carbonation, very crisp and refreshing.

O: A good to great beer. Hides the ABV very well. I love the tart sour finish. /88

4.21/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Thanks to Josh for this one. Mischief has a beaming glow, full of many different hues from yellow to gold to amber and even copper; it all depends on how you're holding it agains the light. It's volatile, producing a huge, sticky, cloudy, and chunky white head with even the most modest of pours. Some good, lumpy lacing sticks to the glass for the entirety of the brew.

Mischief is very hoppy on the aroma, much more hoppy than I was expecting going into it. It's quite pungent, with some blasting citrus and bitter grapefruit peels. Coupled with the heavy hoppage is a spicy, phenol character that is a bit frightening up front. It stings the nostrils and strips some of my nose hair away; peppery, spicy, piney.

Lots of orange and lemon fruitiness up front, just walking on the edge of the cliff of tartness but never slipping into sour territory. The phenol character, though stepped down a touch from the aroma, is still pungent in the flavor, and maybe a touch overboard at times. Walking through a citrusy forest with trees of spice and Lemon Pledge, baby.

Piney, woodsy, hoppy, and full of Belgian yeast, coriander, and white pepper spices. The finish contains a good deal of fruit as well, some grapefruit and orange that almost have a nice, juicy factor. The mouth feel is heavily effervescent; lots and lots of carbonation for a sharp mouth feel that cuts well with the heavy spice of the brew.

Strange and different, and Belgian Pales can be touchy, but I enjoyed Mischief. Hefty amount of spice as well as a hefty amount of fruits with a good hand in the hops as well. The borderline acetone-like alcohol can be a bit fatiguing over time, but the brew is good in small doses. I wish some of these Bruery beers came in smaller serving sizes.

Served in the 750ml bottle typical of The Bruery beers.

Appearance is gold, very carbonated and bubble.

Smells sweet, yeasty, dry. You definitely get a hint of the Belgian style here.

Taste is extremely clean, a little sweet, crisp, carbonated. Not too yeast, but the presence is here.

Overall I have to say I really like this beer. It is extremely easy to drink and refreshing. These guys hit it spot on when they made this beet. It's a belgian IPA mix, but the hop presence is JUST noticeable which I like. Hop bombs usually are so gushing with hops you taste nothing else. This has a very nice balance.

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.

750ml bottle. Hot damn! Bruery beer available in Alberta! Whose soul had to be sacrificed for this to happen? Anyways, my ode to the ultimate patriotic American holiday carries on, only somewhat abated (my quarter-breed infant son has that way about him).

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden yellow hue, with four fingers of lazily rising, loosely puffy, and silkily foamy off-white head, which leaves a broad array of patchy, sudsy lace around the glass as it gently recedes.

It smells of grainy, lightly wheaty pale malt, an apple and pear drupe fruitiness, a tame citrus note, lightly spicy yeast, a subtle uric funkiness, and earthy, grassy hops. The taste leads with the softly bready, grainy pale malt, followed by some edgy yeast, waning in its spiciness, equitable, if fairly indistinguishable orchard fruit, a bit of white pepper, and earthy, leafy, grassy hops.

The carbonation is a tad frizzante, but generally agreeable, the body a hefty medium weight for the style, and straight-ahead, no frills smooth. It finishes off-dry, the grainy malt, combined with a touch of evolving candi sugar ensuring a sweetness that neither yeast, nor fruit offset, nor hop can overcome.

One straight-up - pedantic, even - emulation of some of the best that the Flemish have to offer - all without the usual uptick in unpleasant, astringent booziness. So, yeah, I like this, and not just because I can place this on a mantle amongst the best that the whale society of BA-friendly producers can churn out.

T: Has a nice acidity right up front, sweet candied fruit, briskly hoppy with a long finish. Hoppy, estery, spicy, very drinkable.

M: Huge carbonation, efferverscent in the mouth. Medium to light bodied.

A very nice beer, not terribly expensive (for Canadians) for the quality. Recommended.

For the money I was expecting a bit more. Fairly hoppy for a Belgian style ale, but I just couldn't get into this one. For less money I'd rather have a Brooklyn Local 2 which I think is a far superior take on a Belgian style ale. Some of the other Bruery products I saw were ridiculously expensive, based on this one I will pass on the others.

750ml bottle poured into tulip 30/6/13

A hazy golden orange with a few bubbles feeding a large and loose 3 fingers of foam that falls rather fast leaving a couple thick partial rings

S some spicy yeast, pear, apples, some brown sugar, faint catty notes, canned pineapple, faint pine, and some more spice with citrus I can't quite place, a fair bit going on

T not quite the same level of fruit and more yeast almost funky, a little more spice then the nose, a small step back but still solid

M medium full, with more bubbles then I could see in the glass, a mild bitter bite with very faint booze, a little spice and lemon rind on the finish

O something I enjoyed and would recommend but its a little overpriced at 13$, the nose was great and not lacking in any area

I'm pretty happy to see The Bruery here in Alberta and can only wonder what else I may be able to get my hands on. Its not cheap beer but you gotta know I'll be buying all of them at least once.

750 ml bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first beer from The Bruery, going in as unbiased as possible. For lack of a tulip or a snifter, I'm pouring this into my Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Semi-aggressive pour yields about four fingers of towering frothy white foamy head with excellent retention. The head hangs out pretty much the entire time. Leaves giant white sheets of lacing on the glass. Cloudy, murky, lemon colored body.

S - Smell is of fruity Belgian yeast and malts. Pineapple, lemon, light hops, some earthiness and some grassy qualities. Slightly underwhelming aroma, I had higher expectations.

T - Taste is sweet, fruity, and tart. Some earthy grassy hops, slight bit of funky yeast, and bready biscuit malts. Juicy tart pineapples comes through the strongest for me.

M - Feel ends dry, with a hint of tartness hanging on. Body is crisp and light.

Overall, it is a smooth, clean, and palatable beer, but just doesn't bring very much action to the table in my opinion. I'm enjoying the fruitiness and the hops, and while I'm not a big fan of Belgian style beers to begin with, this beer is highly drinkable. Not a beer I will try again, but I'm glad to have tried it.

The Bruery Mischief ---4/5.

Looks brilliant with a cloudy golden hue. Has an eggshell white head that is fluffy yet dense.

Smells of a touch of Belgian yeast with some floral hay and a soft banana/pear quality. Touch of citric/piney hops.

Tastes of the piney grapefruit is mixed with some banana and pear with that fresh cut hay note. Hops make it bite while the clove/pear/banana smooths out the finish. Belgian yeast is very apparent. There is a touch of an alcohol note towards the end. Aftertaste is a creamy malt with that hop touch hanging around.

Mouthfeel is fairly carbonated yet creamy enough to denote its not a session Belgian pale.

Overall, a good example of Hopped up Belgian pale ales. The alcohol note was a bit of a distraction for me. One to try.

initial taste is a mirage of fruits but most notably pear followed buy a good blend of earthy/spicy hops that perform there duty by balancing out the fruity taste and esters given off by the yeast. the beer does give off a little bit of alcohol warmth as well. the beer finishes dry but has a medium mouthfeel that is rather creamy. very enjoyable.

Part of a nice haul from a store in Colorado Springs. My first offering from this brewery and one that I am excited about.

A- Poured from a 750 ml into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a dense hazy golden with a fluffy 3 finger head that seems to stick around forever. Wonderful lacing. Very appetizing look here.

S- Citrus hops, lemon grass hops, a little earthyness, belgium yeasts, with a touch of spice. Hops seem to be what I am getting myself into here.

T- Follows nose well. Hops throughout. Grapefruit, tangerine, lemon grass. Subtle tart flavor with pepper and a little musk of the belgium yeast character. Very tasty indeed. The hop profile takes the lead, but a balance remains.

M- Crisp, drinkable, smooth. Buttery. A perfect mid body feel. Dry finish.

O- I do enjoy this style of beer and this is a fantastic American hoppy version. A nice level of intense hops without sacrificing much of the Belgium aspects. Went really well with the Carolina Honey baby back ribs that I grilled up.

Slightly chill hazed amber with a puffy white head.

Smells strongly of flowers and apples with a slightly musty yeast aroma. Lemon marmalade malt scent. Hops are predominantly lemon.

Starts out mildly sweet with a yeasty bread flavor. Slight onion and apple flavors. Mild bitterness. Detectable presence of alcohol. This one tastes a little funky.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an OK beer but a little funky, that onion flavor throws it off a bit.

Lots of yeast in the aroma with a bit of funk. Okay body, but the beer is a little bland. Funk aroma does stand out in the flavour. Not a whole lot of fruit or flower in the taste. Maybe it is old, but I expected more lighter notes of citrus fruit than the heavy funk that i do get.

It comes in a hazy gold color with a fluffy head.

The aroma is grassy, lemon, bready, and yeast. The sweetness is almost like a lemon candy.
The taste is a light hops with slight maltiness and beautiful finish.

The flavor follows with lemon, grass, a bit of booze, and tons of spice.

The mouthfeel is a bit light on this beer, but that makes it all so drinkable.

This is dangerously tasty and smooth for 8.5% ABV.
