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.

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.

Split with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a good fluffy two finger head that faded to leave loads of side lacing and a creamy blanket.
S - Aromas of Belgian fruity esters galore, clearly a Belgian strong pale, super faint apricot towards the end. Really have to go looking for it.
T - Taste is more Belgian strong pale, fair amount of alcohol and esters, apricot is very back end on the finish. Would be tough to get through the bottle alone.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit over carbonated, some off notes, booze, carbonation grows as it goes.
O - Overall this beer was a mess. Over carbonated, not much apricot, too much Belgian, ugh.

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.

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.
