1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks like a murky brown, with a very small head. Aroma is full of vinegar with some sweet. Taste is assailing, like vinegar and sugar, and somewhere in there beer. In fact, repeated tastings are a struggle to overcome the vinegar taste impact and get at some real flavor. Finish is extremely dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Village de la bičre 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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
