3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from TWM Fredericksburg - I generally donít have high expectations for anything Chapeau produces, but this is head and shoulders the best Iíve had from them. That said, itís a decent fruit lambic, but nothing spectacular. There was an artificialness to the raspberry sour tartness that I didnít like, though the oaking did mellow the sourness perhaps.

Ok i guess. A bit fruit extracty tasting. Needs more tart and less sweet. Serving:bottle

Pretty colour, tasted like a raspberry Lifesaver, which I loved! So clearly I enjoyed this beer. I think the oak casks did effect the taste, some extra nuance here. I liked it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep red colour, with very little head, but maybe I didnít pour it correctly. Instense raspberry aroma. Taste is sweet, a touch of stour, but not much, na more like candy than fruit. Like Lifesavers candy. Flavourful but not a spectacular lambic.

Bottle. Hazy red, small white head that settles quickly. Aroma of sour raspberries and lemon. Taste is more sour than sweet. Actually not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet raspberry syrup. Cloudy maroon, thin pink head. Flavvor is raspberries, big surprise, but significantly more tart than the aroma. Cranberries seem to be in the mix also. Finishes juicy sweet. Delicious, but not much to it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this beer had a dark red pour (with some red rose color), the pour made a thin cover of large bubbles that moved to a partial cover and ring,
it appeared there was little carbonation in this beer, I could not find any bubbles flowing in the glass, the beer left a little lacing as I drank,
there were aromas of raspberry, raspberry sweetness and a little sourness on the nose, and a little wood and vegetable off-ness in this beer?
Not sure what it was, oxidation maybe? I know I did not like it.
flavors were raspberry and a little sweetness with a little off-ness at the finish of this drink from the same thing I mentioned in the smell of this beer, the finish was a little drying,
mouth feel was so-so,
I did not enjoy this beer, and I would not try again.
