UDBeernut (1855) - Saint Johns, 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.

BillWyce (751) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours clear straw gold color, with a thin 1-finger head that was gone quickly. Aroma was not what I was expecting from other lambics I’ve had. Yeasty funky, with light notes of apricot and wood underneath. Body is light, yet a bit syrupy. Not as effervescent as most other lambics I’ve had. Sweet-tart flavor up front, mixed with yeast and a note of lactic sourness. The flavor becomes identifiable as apricot at the back, mixing with a vanilla wood note.

Calisky (1145) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 27, 2014
Couleur dorée orangée, mousse qui disparait. Nez d’abricot fermenté en barrique. Gout de vieux abricots sucrés, notes tanniques et barrique. Bon corps. Fin sucrée acidulée abricots. Moi j’aime vraiment bien.

kermis (5752) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Pours clear dark golden with a thin off white head. Aroma of artificial apricot cordial with cardboard malt and wort. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light to light moderate acidic lurking behind the sugar. Light bodied with soft carbonation. This ain’t no Fou...

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

Icedwarf (435) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
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 (3482) - 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 (3063) - Baarle-Nassau, 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.

Beertobealive (302) - 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 (3104) - 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.
