Mischief

Name – Mischief
Country – United States
Type – Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Appearance – Poured a cloudy orangish color with a big fluffy white head.  It leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell – The Belgian yeast stands out to me along with citrus and fruity hops.  Some pineapple I get in there.

Taste – Very nice piny, citrusy hop character mixes with the yeast taste very nicely.  There is a slight, ever so slight funk to it.  You get some spices as well including a bit of a black pepper like quality.

According to the Bruery’s website they are going to be making Mischief all year round now.  That’s awesome news because when it first came down here my local store didn’t get any bottles.  Well this is from the newest shipment and I love the new bottle caps they have now instead of the plain gold ones they use to have.  This is a great beer.  An awesome hop character mixes well with the Belgian yeast on it.  I would put this up against any other Belgian IPA styles.

Overall Grade – A-

    I have one of these in the garage – I’ll have to give it whirl. Fr some reason I keep buying beers brewed with Belgian yeast even though I’m sick of the esters it can produce. Perhaps I a beer masochist. I dunno.

    How old is the bottle you have Jim? I have seen this beer doesn’t seem to age well. My friend had an older bottle last week and the sediment on the bottom of the bottle was all clumped together.
