The Bruery Mischief Belgian Strong Pale Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is The Bruery Mischief Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
From The Bruery website: “Mischief is a Hoppy Belgian-Style Golden Strong Ale. This wickedly good golden ale is fiendishly dry-hopped with American hops to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture. Enjoy it, but you’ll want to keep an eye out.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a huge fluffy white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, Belgian yeast, spice, sweet malts and grains.
Taste: Grapefruit and pineapple, funky Belgian yeast, bready malts and peppery. Hoppy, fruity and sweet.
Overall: Smooth and crisp, The Bruery Mischief Belgian Strong Pale Ale is well balanced and highly drinkable. At 8.5% ABV this hoppy Belgian was right in my wheelhouse.
