COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style ale, golden and hoppy. Not quite evil, yet not to be trusted, this Golden Ale is effervescent, dry, hoppy and crisp-you’ll want to keep an eye out. (ABV: 8.5%, IBU: 35, SRM: 4, Format: 750 mL bottles and draft)

Tap @ Parkway. Cloudy gold pour with a stiff white head leaving a coarse lace. Nose is very light, with some lemon and banana with a hint of smokiness and some yeast as it warms. Start is banana esters and it transitions into a peppery, spicy and sweet middle and finish. The body is heavier than the average BSA, but not in a league with IIPAs, etc. Having said that, Mischief is a bit too sweet for me in the finish.

Tasted from a growler brought home the bruery. Light golden in color with a generous white head. Aromas of bready belgian yeast. Medium in body and very nice on your palate. Light fresh hop flavors with some sweetness thrown in there. Finish is balanced and on the drier side. A good one.

On tap at the Bruery. Damn this one is good. Good spice to it. Almost like a doughy yeast taste with some sweet spice. Tastes a bit like christmas

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy with a touch of honey. Flavor shows pale malt, citrus, and an underlying vegetal note that I cannot quite put my finger on. Overall body is dry, somewhat astringent, with light to moderate bitterness.

Wow! I love the creativity at the Bruery - a crazy citrus hop aroma nestled on top of a vibrant spicy Belgian body. I’d compare this to an amped up version of Stone’s Cali-Belgique. Really interesting and very delicious.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Pours gold to burnt orange with a large, fluffy and persistant white head. Aroma of champagne, sourdough bread, yams (but less sweet), grass, leaves, and maybe a hint of something like basil. The yeast presence is great here. Flavor of doughy malt, grass, earth, pepper, champagne, dry sourdough bread, tangy spice and grain. Finishes with lot of pepper, earth, grass, and a significant yeasty punch. Spicy in ways that reminds of Unibroue, or other beers that showcase a champagne/Belgian yeast combo. Full bodied but not heavy and a well carbonated creamy texture. Very nice!

750ml bottle, split with my dad in Key Largo, FL. Drinking out of a plastic hotel water glass, there was no coffee pot or I could have gone Clark VV on it. Murky orange and gold with a fluffy white head and some sinking particulate matter that looks to be from hop pellets. Aroma is spicy and floral, reminds me a lot of the Mt Hood hops I have been using. There is also some candi sugar and general fruitiness. Soft mouthfeel with a somewhat assertive bitterness at the finish. Citrus, spicy phenols, light malt and floral flavors. It is certainly a pleasant enough beer. Reminds me a lot of a homebrewed beer I had at theisti’s recent party.

WisconsinBeer (715) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a thick eggwhite foam head that quickly dissipates. Malts are slightly sweet and mild, just a hint of sugar and ripe fruits. Quickly dries itself out on the back end, finishing with crisp carbonation and a slight booze kick on the back of the throat that reminds me of champagne. Dry and crisp, a nice drinking beer.

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pours a clear golden with modest fine-bubbled white head. Aromas of tangerine, sweet spice, candy sugar, and a touch of pine. Medium sweet juicy citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) with a dry spicy, floral, resinous finish and medium bitterness. Exquisitely balanced. Medium bodied with prickly lively carbonation.

Sampled on tap at The Bruery Provision. The appearance is a golden hue. The flavors and aromas are Belgium forward with a definite hop presence but the Belgium first just doesn’t do it for me.
