Hildigöltur (5103) - 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 (5231) - 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 (3617) - 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.

Slight apricot nose and taste. I thought this could have used a little more gusto in the fruit department. More sugary than anything.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2002
Seedy, pitty nose and taste. Dry acidic start and aftertaste. What apricot taste that lands in the middle seems fake.

Ernest (6264) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2002
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy orange, dense tiny and small particles. Aroma is moderately yeasty (mold), lightly malty (toasted grain), with notes of apricot and peach. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation. Disgustingly sweet, moldy aroma (the fruit scent is ok).

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2002
Peachy amber hazy colour with a sub-mm wisp of a white head. The initial aroma is that of ’first attempts at making home made white wine’ before an unripe peach hint wafts past. Light sour start and then finally some unripened apricot flavour arrives along with some light sweetness. Clean soft dry finish. Uninspiring!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 7, 2002
Clear deep amber in color, the head a greyish white, minimal lace, nose is sweet ripe apricots, the front sweet to the max, the top thin, the finish is lightly sour, lightly acidic, somewhat dry, not something I care for.
