25cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - slightly hazy and golden with a thin head. Nose - lemon balm with lemon zest coming behind. Taste - like drinking straight lemon juice with no beer flavours evident at all. Palate - light to medium bodied with a bitter middle and end. Overall - this one wasn’t as sweet as the others, obviously because of the fact it was a bitter fruit. However, it was just like literally sucking a lemon so no complexity at all.

Beertobealive (209) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from « Au comptoir de la bière" - Callian. Very short white head with some very light lime and cider flavor. Clear yellow body. Extremely bitter taste underlined with lots of lemon acidity. Only drinkable with lemon seasoned courses.

Scopey (6326) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Botte from Beers of Europe. It pours hazy golden with a small bubbly white head. The nose is sweet, sugary lemonade, tangy, candied peel and faint sherbet. The taste is tangy lemon, white sugar, lemonade, a touch of acidity, wood and cheap lemon sherbets with a short finish. Light body and fine carbonation. One of the better Chapeau fruit beer s to be honest. There is a bit of acidity to carry some of that crazy sweetness. Not great, but a step about the banana/apricot!

tom10101 (2668) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy golden/orange with a small ring of white foam and little lacing. Aroma is of "Pine Sol" with hints of ginger. Taste is of lemongrass, citric notes and light ginger presence. Medium body. Agressive carbonation. Citric finish. Again, not much lambic in there.

JulienHuxley (2954) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Nice clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really lemony, citrus rind, citronella, pinesol, soapy. Taste is lemony, tart, ginger like spicy flavor, soapy. Palate is light but aggressively carbed. Ouf... pretty far of the OWA yuzu as far as citrus lambics go...

250 ml bottle. BB 21/02/15. From belgianbeerfactory.com.
Clear deep golden colour with a tiny white head. Fruit tea, bitterness, birch leaves and malt in the aroma. The flavour is tart and sour with lemon, some sweetness and mild maltiness. No bad - no good.
