Another sweet Chapeau fruit beer, artificial as ever, lots of strawberry juice in the nose along with a hint of tomato juice, sweet but fortunately not too cloying, lambic almost unnoticeable, just a very faint accent of lambic sourness. Man, these Chapeau products are weird, even in their style.

Ik eet graag aarbeien en er zijn ook goede bieren van, maar dit is er niet een van. Slecht.

A bit sour aroma. Light brown with almost no cap. Swet-sour taste with strong strawberry notes, meanwhile the full strawberry taste is hidden. Some bitter notes afterwards.

25cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - orangey-murky with a very thin head that mostly disappears. Nose - strawberry sauce. Taste - more strawberry sauce but slightly lifted at the end with some tanginess. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that is a bit cloying to be honest. Overall - not my thing really.

250ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours murky amber, thin white head. Red fruit aromas, hard to say strawberry as such. Comes through a bit more on the taste. Sweet, sucrose finish. Ok.

tom10101 (2723) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Muddy and dirty amber/brown with a small bubbly off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is of sugary strawberry jam with light acidity and rotten notes. Taste is mainly of strawberry jam and rotten fruits with light acidic presence and lingering garbage juice finish. Medium body. Almost flat. Strawberries aren’t an easy fruit to use in a beer and it can often result in an horrendous rotten/garbage beer... just like this one.

JulienHuxley (3016) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Murky brown thick swilly pour with white head. Aroma of strawberry, rotten fruit, overripe berries, leafy notes. Taste of strawberry, a little better than the aroma but not much, lingering trashy finish. Palate is muddled, pulpy, yeasty and just generally pretty gross. Pretty darn bad.

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 16, 2014
Couleur rouge/brune trouble foncée, pas de mousse. Nez de fraise vineuse (style rouge flamande) Gout doux de fraise légèrement acidulée. Corps un peu huileux , pas de carbonation. Pas mal p une telle biere.
