Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Itís really either/or with the De Troch fruitbeers. Some are fresh and delicious - others are stickingly sweet and then there are those completely awful. This belongs in the last category. Amber coloured with only a small head. Tart, synthetic and artificial flavors - this really is foul. Not a beer to drink for pleasure. 210598

JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Apricot aroma, but also yeast and some barnyard, lambic weirdness. Dark orange, cloudy. Very sweet, with lots of apricot, some sugar, and a light, strange lambic flavor. This beer lacks complexity but what is there is pleasant.

Awful disgusting artifiacial sweetener nose with apricot extract. Alcopop of little substance.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Like all Chapeaus, corked, then crowned, in a green 12.7 0z bottle. Appearance: clear, bright apricotty hue, bubbling with carbonation, and a brief white head atop. Aroma: a bit thin, but full of apricot. With De Troch, thereís no fooling around, what you see on the label, fruit-wise, is what youíre gonna get. Straight up, no fooling. On the palate: very mellow, very light, though tingly with carbonation. Only a touch of tart occasionally intrudes. Flavor is excellent, light sweet, fruity. Perfect dessert beer, made for cooliní out after pigginí out!

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Light apricot aroma but mainly too sweet. Dull amber hazy with white head. Watery with soft carbonation. Weak fruity watery lambic, not much apricot flavor. Fake sweet cereal after.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2004
Orange with no head? Is this a beer? Really it looks more like McDonalds Orange drink to me. Itís sweet and smooth and certainly tastes of apricot but not really the dominant taste. Moreso honeyish. Maybe I got a really good bottle compared to others?

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2004
Orange-amber w/ slight sugary glaze. Thin white head. Sweet candy-like, artificial apricot aroma w/ notes of honey & wet leather. Sugary feel. Sweet, cloying artificial apricot flavour w/ a mild tartness in the finish.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2004
Dark amber colour. Smells very bad; rotten apricot. Tastes a LITTLE better. Drainpour.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2004
Dirty-hazy brown with greenish shine; dirty brown slim head. Absolutely disgusting, off-putting nose like rotting vegetables in an equally rotting cardboard box. Faughhh! Thank God it doesnít taste rotten as well. In fact, itís like sugarwater flavoured with a slight sourish tinge that is vaguely reminding of citric acid. Nondescript fruity flavour, end is like very poor faro. Light bodied, slight slick texture. I would love (well...) to say that this might well be a bad bottle. Seen "Chapeau"ís reputation, I doubt it.
