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.
