Well I went into this thinking about, Filmishmish. Let it be known that I'm a bit hit and miss on sours. Having said this, I absolutely love Filmishmish, and while Mischmishmish is good, it's no Filmishmish.
The nose grabs you by the collar and tempts you..."I'm apricot, smell me, feel the fuzz. Love me." OK sorry this is getting a little too much. Anyway, the nose is stunning.
The taste does not follow the nose's lead. It's good, but the apricot is subdues, with some champagney notes. Mouthfeel is golden, lite.
Finish is a bit dry, again very lite on the apricot.
Overall, pretty good. Maybe would've iked it a bit more if I wasn't prejudiced by the amazing Filmishmish. Probably set very high expectations. So, to end this ramble...It's pretty good, worth seeking out, and I'm glad I tried it. Glad I got a few more to sit on and try again.

Sampled: Bruery Tulip
Appearance: Cloudy golden yellow color with a large white head that slowly faded to a thin ring.
Smell: Apricot notes,some bready aromas, and a touch of musk.
Taste: The tart Apricot notes from the nose come through along with some grainy/bready notes. The beer finishes fairly dry with the Apricots faintly in the background. The apricots come through more in the nose than the taste profile.
Mouth-feel: Medium-bodied with fairly high level of carbonation.
Overall: I was hoping this would feature apricots in the taste as much as the 2014 Filmishmish but it was not to be. This was still a good spin on the standard Mischief.

A: poured into a Duvel tulip to a cloudy gold topped by a monsterous dense and rocky white head with excellent retention and lacing
S: smells fruity and slightly sour with some spicy yeast notes as well. slight hints of funk as well
T: Taste is apricots with a slight sourness, fruity esters and spicy yeast with some mild funk. swallow is slight alcohol and medicine with more apricots and yeastyness with a bit more funk
M: this beer is fairly light on the palate with strong carbonation and a semi dry finish
O: Interesting and delicious. It follows the style well and has good flavors. Not sure if I want to lay my other bottle down for awhile or drink it fresh.

A-Cloudy yellow orange, very carbonated, two finger fluffy head.
S-Grass, wheat, lemon, spice, some apricots, not much funk.
T-Grass, lots of the mischief coming through. Rather like a saison, some lemon very mild apricot.
M-Lighter, well carbonated, crisp finish.
O-Too much of the mischief, not enough apricots or funk. Either more would be better.

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by Richard - thanks.
A: Pours a hazy yellow with a solid one-inch thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves splotchy lace.
N: Belgian ale yeast, wheat, grassy, lemony, herbal, fruity - but can't pick out the apricots directly.
T: Kinda weird flavors of clashing yeast and fruit. Not sour at all.
M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry, yeasty, some mild peppery spice.
O: Not what I was expecting at all. Fairly weak fruit and not integrated.

Split with rudzud.
Huge fizzy bubbly 2+ finger head fades at a fair pace, decent fluffy lacing, hazy peach orange color.
Nose brings tons of fruit, apricot, canned peaches and canned pear from fruit cocktail, juicy fruit with a mild Belgian blond malt base, esters, little yeast spices, hint of phenolic booze, nice Belgian yeast esters. Unfortunately the fruit fades pretty quickly.
Taste stats with Belgian esters, fruity esters, big phenolic spices and little peppery booze, Belgian yeast mild funk and fruity esters mostly. Light blond malt and hint of sweetness. Over carbonated is distracting, with a weird abrasive fruit skin like feel. Mild apricot and canned peaches in the background that pops up and disappears quickly. Weird bitter tannic flavor on the the back end, and a strange almost fermented creamy flavor. Finish sticky sweet syrupy, more bitter tannins, phenolic booze, esters, and mild bland fruit.
Mouth is med bod, way too much carb, weird abrasive feel.
Overall meh. Started OK but the fruit disappeared way too quickly, and the rest was quite meh.
