Notes/Commercial Description:
After brewing one of our fruited sour ales, we found ourselves with a few too many leftover apricots in the fridge. Rather than start a smoothie company, we decided to create this unique take on the popular Belgian-style golden ale. The addition of apricots strikes a lovely balance with our fruity house yeast, yielding a delightfully mishmishchieveous ale. Effervescent, delightfully fruity, yet surprisingly dry, this is a great beer for the upcoming, warm Summer months.

2014 Vintage
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
