Description: Since many decades, the brewers of the Senne valley are brewing Lambic. In the 19th century they have created several fruit beers. The cherry beer on base of Lambic was the first or one of the first. The Chapeau Kriek is made on base of Lambic, a artisanal traditional product which ripe on oaken barrels. The Chapeau Kriek is a fresh and delicious beer for delightful moments.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy dark cherry amber color, beige rim head, lace that slides back into the drink. Nice aroma of cherry and hay. Taste starts with grain, but is taken over assertively on the swallow by semi-sweet cherry. The cherry drifts through a long finish. This isn’t exactly a Lambic - far too sweet, but the lingering finish comes close.

jookos (3105) - FINLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle. Red dark hazy. Oaky, slight vinous dark cherry nose. Some marzipan, dark cherries, clean finish. This seems a bit off. The other two Chapeaus this evening were pretty fruity nice, this seems a bit stale and old. Sweets, with some acidity to make it drinkable. The flavour bothers. Old bottle perhaps.

kermis (6141) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy reddish purple with a medium pink head. Aroma of sweet candied cherries. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet, with this unpleasant super sharp finish. Light bodied with pretty flat carbonation.

37,5 cl bottle with cork from Dranken Geers in Belgium. Fruity smell with cherries, almonds and some cellar notes. Fruity and sweet taste with cherries and almonds. I like sweet fruit beers so this suited be just fine.

Donkerrood bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is lichtzoet en fruitig, duidelijk kersem, niet onaardig. Etiket is inmiddels gewijzigd.

2014.08 - 37.5cl - mooi diep roodbruin bier, rozig schuimpje, niet te veel - neus : zoetigheid slaat je rond de oren, bubblegum, grenadine - mond : zeer zoet mondgevoel, klein zuurtje, snoepgoed - plakkerig mondgevoel, jammer, te weinig zuur en de krieken ontgaan me volledig door overheersende zoetigheid
