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.

Terrific overall. Wasn't sure what to expect. The nose is over the top dried apricots. Beautiful. I spent a good 30 seconds just smelling this creature. Bone dry, champagne effervescence. Absolutely no residual to speak of. I drank it over the course of an hour. By the end it had this melting softness and juiciness. All-star. Sad-only bottle. Hats off.

Edit: Had again, 2 months later. Apricot has died significantly on the nose. The brett is eating this beer alive. 4 finger head. delicious, but different.

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.

From 05/17/14 notes. Got 1 bottle of this in the RS this year. 750ml bottle poured into a snifter.

a - Pours a hazy, bright orange-yellow color with three fingers plus of fluffy white head and high carbonation evident. Head lasts a while, lots of lacing. Looks good.

s - Smells of spices, yeast, brett, apples, apricots, fruity malts, bready malts, and some floral notes. Nice nose. Little heavy on the spices for me, but the apricots and brett both come through too, which is nice.

t - Tastes of spices, pepper, yeast, apples, fruity malts, apricots, floral hops, earthy notes, and very light brett. Lots of pepper, more than the nose, and less brett, but nice.

m - Medium body and high carbonation. Highly carbonated but nice, crisp, and refreshing.

o - Overall a nice, eays drinking crisp Belgian ale. I would have liked more of a presence from the brett and more apricots, and less spices and pepper, but if you like that in your beers you'll probably like it a lot. Worth checking out.

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.
