UDBeernut (1708) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2012
Pours light amber orange with fizzy head with little retention. Sugary sweet nose. Taste and body is like fruit juice. Light apricot, overly sweet. Pass.

Een van de mindere abrikozenbieren dat ik al geprobeerd heb, dan hebben ze betere bieren bij chapeau

Helder geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en fruitig, Lambic style. Goed te drinken op een warme dag. Etiket is inmiddels gewijzigd.

Tantore (15) - Alabama, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Liked this a lot more than the notes. Winey in texture and taste with more sweetness than one would hope but I found it to be clean apricot sweetness. Some mild sourness. I enjoyed it.

JulienHuxley (3041) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle from Village de la bière in Strasbourg. Hazy gold pour with no head. Aroma is not too bad, nice sweet apricot aroma, some solventy notes nonetheless, tropical fruit, really soapy. Taste is fruity, light apricot, not much lambic going on, sweet. Palate is pretty much flat, light-med bodied. Bad, but far from as bad as these guys can make it bad.

Martinus (2811) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Clear golden colour, pinkish hue, white head. Aroma of yoghurt, typical De Troch ’spoiled yoghurt’, 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 (238) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from « Au comptoir de la bière" - Callian. Pours with no head at all. Bitter flavors. Clear orange body. Refreshing but lacks bubbles and apricot taste

tom10101 (2758) - 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. It’s actually not that bad considering it’s from Chapeau. So much better than the Banana or Exotic version. It’s actually apricot juice with some carbonation. Not offensive, especially when cold enough.

Scopey (6812) - 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 (1863) - 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 I’m 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 wasn’t really apricot. t took the fact it didn’t deliver on it’s advertisement in the rating. Palate - the body is very light, the texture thin, the carbonation average, and the finish short
