The Bruery Mischief - it doesn’t get any better than this. Wonderful yeasty aroma coming from a bright yellow pour and a fluffy head that could have stayed around a little longer. Taste is a yeasty mix of fruit notes, especially banana. Finish is clean and satisfying with just the right amount of alcohol. Mischief hits the spot but fortunately doesn’t live up to its name.

sweet orange mangoey pineapple belgian yeast aroma with some slight spice notes in there as well, definately the best smelling belgian ale I have had in a long timeslight citrusy hop notes as well sits at a slightly hazy yellow first taste is slightly farmhouse like with some notes of sourness and finishes with a slight hop bitterness that is refreshing and adds an amazing touch to the complexity of this beer im getting a slight cheese like taste as well in there with some slight orange/spice notes in there as well a light soap like taste that I associate with saisons, that is not at all comparable to the taste you get from something like a keystone light, yet adds a little touch to the taste, sits with a small white head, honestly this is a highly complex beer that should be cherished after proper understanding of the different styles of belgian beer killer beer a heavier saison with some more hop notes then saisons as well, truely a treat to have

Notes of grapefruit. Golden color, with a nice foam when poured into a glass. The hops work will with this mildly tart Belgium style beer. It went well with pizza. I would definitely recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys IPAs or Belgium style beers

750ml bottle. Pours a hazed golden yellow color with an off-white head with good retention and lacing. The aroma is fantastic! It is very fruity, a lot of citrusy hops, honey and some alcohol. Smells like a Belgian-style IPA. The aroma is very well done, can’t wait to try it. The taste like the aroma starts out very fruity with a good amount of bitterness in the finish from the hops. I like it, very nice flavor profile. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Mischief is definitely a beer that I will be purchasing again in the future. Recommended!

Wow, this is one of the first American brews that comes so close to a Belgian as to be virtually indistinguishable. Poured with a nice off white foamy frothy thick head and good lacing. Color is a lightly hazy amber. Aroma is great - spicy malty floral a bit of yeast. Flavor is similar Fairly dry but still a bit of sweetness, especially in the finish. Excellent body and carbonation as it fits the beer perfectly. Very easy drinking beer. Session.

This was quite nice. A bubbly ale that has a pretty strong sour bite as well. Easy to drink.

smells killer, pineapple/banana like notes. The smell is covered by my gentle pour yet I get a fizzy monstrous head that acts like It’ll be around for days. after 10 minutes still a large head. No cold glass either. Taste is oh man. This is like Russian rivers "Damnation" with a hop smack. The complexity of this beer is evolving on me. This is a really good beer!

Had this one recommended to me by a buddy at my local beer store, glowingly. This definitely lives up to the hype. West coast explains this beer entirely. I don’t know what it is about those west coast california IPAs, but they have this bite that’s harsh, clean, spritey, and extremely bitter, and this one does not let down on all of those notes for an instant. Oranges and grapefruits are everywhere, and the beer is clean despite being muddy and chalky looking. The belgianiness is a wonderful addition to the stiff pale ale (8.5 %) hoppiness, adding super dry apple crispness and that super bitter sweetness that you get when you crunch down on a blackberry seed burried in your back teeth, that bitter dry chalky astringently warm taste. This beer was fantastic. My buddy said he recommended it in his shop as beer of the year, and I might have to agree. Pick this up if you can.
