Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Clear golden colour, pinkish hue, white head. Aroma of yoghurt, typical De Troch íspoiled yoghurtí, apricot, sweetener. Fruity flavour, apple, apricot, light sour, sweet hints. Finish sour(ish) apple, lingering sour notes, some yoghurt. Rather enjoyable. The last one of the Chapeau fruit drinks for me.
(25cL bottle @ home)

Beertobealive (201) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Hazy yellow/golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of apricots/peaches juice, light acidity, sugar and floral notes. Taste is also of apricot juice, light acidity, medium sweetness and floral finish. Light garbagy and metallic notes too. Light body. Medium carbonation. Itís actually not that bad considering itís from Chapeau. So much better than the Banana or Exotic version. Itís actually apricot juice with some carbonation. Not offensive, especially when cold enough.

Scopey (6138) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle at home, from Beers of Europe. It pours golden orange with a small white head. The nose is sweet, sugary, tangy, artificial apricot and tinned peach. The taste is much the same.....sweet, artificial, sugary, apricot, tangy, iced tea and wood with a sweet finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Pretty awful really. Sweet, tangy and nasty.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2014
Served from a bottle at Lexington Beerworks (KY) Medium amber (like apple juice); excellent clarity; Decent head and lacing. Moderately fruity aroma without a specific apricot tone; light farmhouse character; a bit floral. Flavor: Apricot? Certainly fruity. apple and pear juices. Hint of banana. Moderately tart and slightly sweeter. Mildly funky. Medium body; medium carbonation.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Aroma - the aroma is pleasant, but Iím not picking up apricot. The nose similar to a cider Appearance - the body color is somewhere between gold and amber; the liquid is clear. The head comes up about 1/4 " and quickly fizzes out to a white sliver. Taste - the taste is pleasant mostly sweet, with a slight tangy sour. Not really picking up on the apricot, more apple or pear cider-like tastes. Although, it is tasty it wasnít really apricot. t took the fact it didnít deliver on itís advertisement in the rating. Palate - the body is very light, the texture thin, the carbonation average, and the finish short

Roublard (161) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2013
Bottled. Clouded hazy light amber/yellowish body w/o any decent foam. Aroma is full of fruits but the fruit notes are aggressive and straight. Not very impressive texture and taste, like jucied beer.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2013
250 ml bottle. BB ??? From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy orangey golden colour with a small white head. Quite mild aroma of some sweet fruitiness, cellar and mild tartness. The flavour is very sweet with some mild tartness. I donít quite recognize the apricot... but thereís some sweet fruit in it. Almost drinkable.

goozen (2873) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2013

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle. Tart, light sweet fruit. Dark apple juice color, no head. Very sweet fruit jam, some honey, and not much else. Thin-medium body. More like a strong fruit juice. Not much funk, and no trace of the oak. Hmmm...
