Mischief, a Belgian-style Golden Ale by The Bruery

Share This Review

Mischief is a Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale brewed by The Bruery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The ale pours a slightly cloudy golden-orange with an inch-thick of bubbly, white foam that offers modest retention. A lovely lattice of sticky lace clings to the sides of the glass.

Aroma

Aroma brings yeasty funk slightly sweetened with a soft fruitiness. A hint of wildflower honey appears as the beer warms.

Flavor

The palate follows the nose with a punch of earthy funk and sourdough. Tart fruit sweetens the middle while coriander and black pepper spice its backend. The tasting finishes with a bite of lemongrass and spicy hops. A high ABV is masked well.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is crisp and dry with a medium body but what really shines is its popping effervescence from the carbonation.

Overall

Mischief is a refreshing ale that’s light in character but really brings big and complex flavors to the palate. This is a hell of a beer and one worth trying.

Recommended Pairings

The Bruery recommends the following food pairings with their Mischief: crispy-skinned loup de mer, lemongrass, or pulled barbecue chicken and pork.
