The Bruery / Funky Buddha ¡Guava Libre!
Papaya, pencil shavings, unripe banana nose. Cloudy ochre, headless. Guava and papaya, quite dry. Full body, moderate carbonation. I was expecting something sweeter or tangy, this was bone dry but still with plenty of fruit character.

The Bruery Black Tuesday Imperial Stout
Bottle dates 2013, finally getting to this. Black beer, slight gusher, head crashed. Aroma is toast, cookies, whiskey, molasses, shoyu, vanilla, dried cherries. Taste is chocolate, cookies, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, dried cherries. Palate is thick and chewy, carbonation subdued. The taste is just intense, a bit sweet, but wow!

The Bruery Mischief (2017)
Flaske: Lys diset belgisk ?l med et stort skumhoved. Duften er let g?ret og klassisk belgisk. Smagen er mere humlet end man skulle tro. Men ellers er deten klassisk hybrid. Fin ?l.

The Bruery So Happens It’s Tuesday
Poured from the quart bottle. Quiet pour with moderate carbonation and an assertive complex aroma - bourbon, roasted barley, vanilla, and oak. The beer is an opaque dark colour with a thin head and only minimal lace. The aggressive bourbon-oak start has malty smoothness and roasted barley expanding into the middle. The long lingering finish has notes of vanilla and hints of chocolate. Good mouthfeel throughout. Well made indeed!

The Bruery Trade Winds Tripel
25.4floz (750ml) bottle, I think I paid about $9 for this several months ago, 8.6% ABV, 2016 edition, poured into a tulip glass. Looks excellent, rich yellow hue and large forming head quickly stabilizes. Bubblegum aroma has some semblance to Juicy Fruit. Palate is heavy, hot, and phenolic. Also, the taste lingers much too long, and is only so-so for my liking.

Pours pitch black with a fairly large dark beige head. Porterish smell, roasted malt, bitter coffee, pretty much no orange. Taste is also almost absent of the chocolate and the orange. Rather roasted and bitter. Very little sweetness and booze for a Bruery beer and I kinda miss it haha. Chocwork Orange was well executed, this falls short.

The Bruery Bourbon Barrel Aged 7 Swans a Swimming
Mahogany color but no longer clear. This is an excellent Belgian quadruple, however the bourbon barrel really hides the raisins, figs, and plums of the original. High alcohol dries out the sweet finish.

Draft sample at HV What’s on Tap. Cloudy yellow and orange color with a khaki head of tiny bubbles. Gentle fruity aroma that has guava to it for sure. The flavor has a caramel sweetness or something like sweet iced tea and the guava pops through occasionally. Interesting and tasty.

The Bruery Mischief (2009-2016)
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a big super stable head. Aroma is light tropical fruit, light farmhouse, phenols, a bit of booze. Body is medium to heavy, quite sweet and decently bitter, with a lively carbonation and strong flavours typical for Belgian ales: Phenols, minerals, earthy, farmhouse, a hint of funk. Palate is long, warming and a bit boozy. Good, but unusual.
