1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Hazy dirty red amber, no head, no lace. Still, and unattractive. Taste is strawberry with a tiny bit of slightly sour malt. Nothing happens start to finish, making this into a high-end Big Red. Not enough.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with the wife. Pour looks a lot like strawberry juice. Nose and taste too reminds a lot of strawberry juice. A bit too sweet and syrupy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours hazy, almost cloudy dark golden with a small white cap showing minimal retention and lacing. strawberry coulis, jam with the fruit’s seeds, litchis, cheap strawberry candies, astringent traces, tiny bit of oak, touch of lambic - no funk, candi and plain sugar sweetness - not necessarily cloying like other chapeaus. light carbonation - could be way brighter, light body - oily, very lightly tart - mostly citric, and sweet, lightly grassy finish. surprisingly no rotten fruits notes, which is good. hey, this is not so bad for a sweetened fruit lambic.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by czar, thanks! Pours a hazy orange with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of strawberry jam, that’s about it. Taste is sweet and a little tart (thank god! otherwise it would just be like that Exotic one we just had). Generally fruity, no real strawberries in there. Body was medium and carbonation moderate. Overall an OK sweetened lambic I guess...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared in a car in Belgium. Pours mostly clear gold with a wimpy, creamy white head. Some ripe, sugary strawberry in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, sugary and basic, with artificial strawberry, faint tang. Light bodied with average carbonation and slightly syrupy texture. Sweet, cloying finish with more artificial strawberry, mild sweat. Not great.

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