I paired this beer with: homemade vegetarian lasagna made by a possible brother in law 2 be. Great Paring!!! Belgium Strong Pale Ales is one of the few beers which pairs very well with Italian food with a tomato based sauce, IMHO.
Tasted on: Monday March 8th, 2010.
Note: Simply a fantastic example of a Belgium Strong Pale Ale with a Hop kick. This is a very drinkable beer with a bit of mischief as the name says. It is not a Duvel clone, but a Duvel clone with a hop kick to it. So if you are looking for a little more hop action in your favorite Belgium strong pale ale, this is your answer!!! I’m sure glad I have more of this beer to enjoy over the next few weeks. Request to the Bruery… Please make more!!!!!
On the Label: Unfiltered Bottle Conditioned. Belgium Style Ale. Golden & 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.
Mischief is best enjoyed fresh. Until then, please store in a cool, dark place. Ideal serving temperature is 45 F (7 C). Please pour carefully, leaving the yeast sediment behind in the bottle. Best enjoyed in a tulip or wine glass.
From their website: Mischief is a Hoppy Belgian-Style Golden Strong Ale. This wickedly good golden ale is fiendishly dry-hopped with American hops to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture. Enjoy it, but you’ll want to keep an eye out.
