3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to dkachur. Pours a clear orange with a very tiny ring of white head. Aroma of sweet apricot and musty oak. Flavor again of sweet fruits (I can’t quite say that it is specifically apricot, but there are plenty of light fruits including apple and apricot) with a nice malt base. Overall quite enjoyable, as the other Chapeaus are.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Pours orange, no head. Lots of sour and sweet fruit and sugar in the aroma, this is going to be f’n soda. Flavour does provide lots of apricot but at the expense of YOUR SOUL. This "beer" company just continues to release filmy, awful fruit juice. Bah.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
250ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Sweet, but a touch sharp too, sticky resiny oak barrel aroma. Peach or perhaps apricot too. The compulsory de Troch level of bizarity too - anna got beef! Tastes of beef and bacon in a delicate sweet and sour apricot sauce! Sharpness is very nice, but body’s very sweet. A touch of soap in places. Finish is pleasantly woody, again a bit sweet, and very fruity - peach, apricot, and lemon. They’re weird, but they’re wonderful in their own quirky way - please keep experimenting, mr head brewer!

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
[Bottle] Not sure what happened to this thing, but this was one of the worst beers I’ve had. The aroma was like sweet apricot, but there was this really sharp, green aroma really similar to jalapeno peppers. The flavor matched the aroma. Two sips and down the drain.
