2011 Vintage
Poured into a Duvel snifter

Appearance: (3.75)
Pours a slightly muted and hazy yellowish orange with a massive, meringue like white head. The head has great retention and leaves plenty of web like lacing as it recedes.

Aroma: (2.75)
Quite the muted aroma, despite being bottled conditioned with Brettanomyces for 2 years; slightly tart pear, pineapple, lightly cheesy hops and wet card board. There is some ever-so-faint mustiness tucked beneath the hops and light malt, but it is really hard to tell if that is Brettanomyces or just more signs of extreme oxidation.

Taste: (3)
Lightly citrus-y hops land on your palate first before becoming easily over powered by cheesiness and wet cardboard. Some faint banana, pear and spicy clove esters from the Belgian yeast help distract from the overwhelming signs of oxidation. The beer finishes slightly tart and dry with the lightly bready malt backbone coating your tongue. lingering notes of pineapple, tangy citrus, cheese and some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: (3.5)
Despite being 8.5%, the body is quite light with fine, prickly carbonation.

Overall: (3)
This is the Bruery's Golden Strong Ale, Mischief, but bottled with Brettanomyces. I was super excited to try this beer because I love a robust, fully mature Brettanomyces character. Unfortunately, I found hardly any of that character in this beer. The rustic, pineapple-y funky goodness that I normally associate with some aged Brett strains is hardly even present. Very disappointed.
