Amber, golden colour. White head, instantly diminishing. Sweet apricot aroma and dito flavour. Typical De Troch beer.

I would love to have access to market/consumer reports for this company. Like, what percentage of customers are repeat customers? And, what is the profile of their typical drinker? Amber/golden with a lasting ring of carbonation; far fewer floaties than other Chapeau beers. Woody, cork aroma, some lambic qualities, with a sweet fruitiness, not overwhelmingly apricot (a cheap port has some similarities). Sticky, sweet palate, with tons of sweetness the whole way through. None too graceful; flavors of lipstick, apricot, peach and wood. Not really very enjoyable--just too sweet, and that’s from someone who loves sweet drinks (port, etc.) Not sour in any remarkable degree.

golden orange color with a white head. The taste is light fruity notes and water. Boring beer...

becksgenius (110) - Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Taste like dried apricots more than fresh ones. most would call it a little on the sour side, i would call it more tart than sour. not bad but i am sure there are much better lambic out there. it was a little dry on the finish, i would have like there to be a hint of spice, but thats just me.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Light peach aroma, opaque amber/peach colour, pours a thin, off-white head. Mildly fruit flavoured, like a mix of berry and green grapes, with a metalic after taste. Sweet, syrupy, orinary.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2003
Apricot jam aroma. Extremely sweet and artificial flavour. Another terrible fruit beer from De Troch.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2003
It was on the edge a bit rotten, like most other beers from Chapeau! This was an average experience. And very sweet.

SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2003
There is less of the sour bite to this than some of the other Chapeau, but it's there just enough to cut through the honeyed, mead like sweetness. Apricot, yes - but more honey than anything else. Tastetastic!

rauchbier (3590) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2003
Bottled. Hazy gold, poor head moderate condition. Sweetened lambic nose with little trace of apricot, yeast sediment provides some musty illusions of cobwebbed halls full of giant oaken vats. Oversweet in the mouth with a fruity apricot and apple flavour. Slight lambic note returns in the aftertaste.
