The first ever batch brewed by The Bruery, Batch No. 1 is the result of a homebrew contest we held in order to determine our first batch. Loren Miraglia and Mark Graham entered a fantastic Belgian-style Golden Strong Ale that captured the judges attention. Batch No. 1 has a pepper-like spiciness and fruit forward flavors of pear and apricot. It is deceptively potent and will continue improving with age. (ABV: 11%, IBU: 20, SRM: 6, Release: One Time Only, Format: 750 mL bottles)

750ml bottle #2124 of 2157 and served in my Duvel snifter, yeah a Bruery beer that is not over carbonated! Honey golden hue with a small frothy head and sheets of lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of apricot and pear esters, candi sugar, caramel, rye, pepper, clove, and some herbal hops. The taste starts malty and sugary sweet with some fruity notes. A hit of booze and light bitter adds balance. A spicy snap upon the finish rounds out a nice palate profile. The mouth feel is slightly sticky and aggressive. Warming upon the chest. All in all easily the best of the beers I have had so far from this brewery. Look forward to trying more in the future at this point.

Pours a medium yellow, slight haze, good white foam that dies down to sticky lacing .. . reminds me of an imperial saison, pepper, honey .. . light muddled mouth, a nice brew but not worthy of its rareness, still honored to have tried it with friends though.. .. Me fail English? That’s unpossible.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Nice fruity aromas of pear, banana, spice, and yeast. Pours a clear tone of gold with no head whatsoever. Flavors of light fruit, pear, banana, clovey spice, and light alcohol. Finishes with a light peppery bitterness. Carbonation is soft and the alcohol is lightly warming.

750 ml bottle thanks to Eric, what a tasting. Pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head. The aroma is massive sweet fruit and candies. The flavor was nice; very warm but just huge apricot and tropical fruit, warm and spicy. Unique. Massive fruitiness.

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Murky orange/yellow with a tight white head. Nice fruity, yeasty pale malt aromas. Medium body with light carbonation. Big spiced fruit flavors of apricot, pears, peaches, with a mild bready yeastiness. The 11% abv is well cloaked. Nice now, probably better later.

This Belgian Strong Ale pours a deep orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, nice lacing with quickly diminishing retention. The aroma is fruity, peaches and apricots with some spices. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are orange and peaches, pears and other fruit. Hops are floral and earthy. Nice spices. Lots and lots of small carbonation bubbles. Hides the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Mostly clear, light amber or dark gold. Small white head. Sweet nose with great hop character to back it up. Really juicy, like peach juice. Great aroma. Slick mouthfeel. A little oily. Also lightly fizzy. Sweet with alcoholic edge and nice hop afterbite. Too sweet but does have nice hop.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2009
Sampled during BA Feb Gathering at Stub & Herbs and shared by Bill. From 750 ml bottle (1908/2157), pours a semi-clear golden ale brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of yeast, winter green, a touch of apples, herbal spice and lemon. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of candi sugar, vanilla, yeast, citrus zest and apples. Finish is semi-sweet, some apple and yeast aftertaste with some alcohol warmth.
