The Bruery The Order

This new release from California powerhouse The Bruery is a Belgian-style abbey ale brewed with dates, candi sugar and coriander. All those notes are fairly consistent descriptors found in the style, so the additions seem to mesh with the beer seamlessly. The date and burnt candi-sugar notes are upfront on the nose and mouth, with supporting tones of caramel malt, brown bread, black plum, raisin and subtle woodspice. Overall, it's quite sweet and subtly smooth, with a pleasant warmth that unfolds on the finish, though it's not sharp and doesn't overstay its welcome. Lauren Buzzeo
