CapFlu (4458) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
Wet cork. Pours a large white frothy head with a clouded orange body. Nose of slightly tart fruit and vinegar. Wow, sour. High acidity... Not for someone with a weak stomach or ulcers. Tart, tart, tart. Slightly salty, lime juice. Very good. 375ml bottle. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights in Victoria.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
750 ml bottle. Very pretty deep gold pour with huge lacy white foam. Aroma is citrusy, white wine, woody, chardonnay. Taste is tart, nice mild funk, really winey, lots of grapes, light woody notes, citric acidity. They can make a gueuze like this, and their lambic is quite OK, yet they keep putting out their chapeau crap which is kind of sad. Palate is med-light bodied, well carbed. Nice stuff.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Bright golden/copper with a frothy off-white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is minty and there’s also the first funk notes I have in a Chapeau yet along wooden notes and light caramel. Taste is moderately to heavily sour with some funk, white wine, minty notes, light wood and hay. Body is a tad week. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. That’s not bad all. Of course, it’s not as complex as the best Gueuze out there but it’s closer to them than to the rest of the Chapeau series. It’s actually drinkable, tasty and quenching. Well done.

Absolutbeerginer (23) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2014
couleur orange cuivrée, mousse blanche. au nez, les notes végétales, métalliques, des levures sauvages dominent. en bouche, acide en attaque, mais l’acidité très brève retombe pour laisser la place à une amertume sèche, qui persiste assez longtemps. peau de pamplemousse, citron, mélangé à des arômes de caramel, rendent cette bière intrigante sans être marquante.

_angst_ (2556) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle bought @ Etre. Vintage unknown but looks pretty old and worn. Pours tiny hazy orange with a rather small fizzy offwhite head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sour and funky with lemon juice, leather, orange zest, barnyard, dry soil, hay and rubber. Taste is sour with crackers, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, barnyard, leather, dried pine needles, wood and hints of unripe grapes. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, tart and light to medium bodied. finish is sour and funky with crackers, lemon juice, orange zest, leather, hay, horseblanket and barnyard. Quite good but nothing fancy...

Tsestah (16) - Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2014
Impressionnant produit d’un Brasserie qui n’est pas très bien cotée généralement. Leur Geuze est trop sucrée, leur Chapeau Banane en fait rire plusieurs, etc. Mais là, il s’agit d’une Oude Gueuze suivant les méthodes traditionnelle de fabrication de la gueuze. Le produit est sec comme il se doit, d’un pétillant champenois et d’une couleur orangé fin. Ce qui se démarque et qui fait que ce produit m’est resté en tête, c’est l’odeur de gadelle noire. Déjà, en versant cette bière dans un verre, l’arôme devient omniprésent, ce qui appelle un goût similaire. La gadellle reste présente en bouche, et avec l’acidité du lambic, ceci donne un fruité unique à quoi je pense encore, à quoi je rêve encore ! Merci De Troch !

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2014
Orange-ambrée, effervescence forte en fontaine, sédiments en suspension, col beige clair abondant. Lambic bien présent, surette mais pas trop, légèrement fruitée et boisée, plus complexe qu’il n’y paraît.

kraddel (2696) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle , best before november 2014 Pours rather clear yellow to orange , very small white head Smells like apple-sourness Low carbonation. Harsh , to sweet to be sour , to sour to be sweet. Think of a nice mix, but replace ’nice ’ with ’bad’ . Same goes for the carbonation, by the way . Gee, I did not expect a good geuze here, but this is even close to be called ’very bad ’ . Rather week mouthfeel . Overall , harsh , and a mixture of bad things , I hope this is just a bad bottle . I’m sure I’ll run into this one again in the future, and do hope it will be better so I can re-rate ..
