A-Pours a cloudy yellow. A strong, creamy head. Light lacing.
S-Not what I was expecting. Mischief really shows up in the nose; pretty noticeable Belgian base. Yeasty and spicy. The other half of the beer delivers a noticeable, rich sweetness. Bourbon notes too. At first I thought it smelled Bretty - as if it was infected.
T-The Belgian influence of Mischief is again clear on the palate. Robust wheat flavor. Spicy and yeasty. It's not nearly as sickeningly sweet as I thought it would be. That being said, it's still pretty sweet. Oakiness is a mellow yet consistent feature of the flavor. Juicy and spicy.
M-I was anticipating a thick, brooding, cloying mess. It was shockingly light and lively. It still blatantly had body but it wasn't thick. I also enjoyed the carbonation. Alcohol was well integrated as well.
O/D-Didn't ever think about purchasing this. Split it with a group. It was better than expected. Definitely unique.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a hazy golden apricot orange color. Some decent white froth and lacing.
(S)- An interesting smell of toast and apricot jam meets honey and oaky booze. Bits of orange citrus and wheat in the background.
(T)- Plenty of orange/apricot citrus meets wheat and biscuit. A splash of honey and oaky booze at the end.
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Not overly sweet but a serious punch of citrus for a wheatwine. The heat is a bit forward too, but not off-putting.
(O)- An interesting wheatwine that is quite potent in the citrus realm.
