A lemon Lambic.

Another eccentric Chapeau thing, this time with lemon juice (and of course, lots of sugar). Thin but stable, cream white head, colour orange blonde, misty. Aroma strangely combines lemon juice with subdued hay-like lambic and a honeyish sugar accent. Soft sweetish onset, lightly sugary, followed by a sharp tingling lemon sourness, some sweet barley noticeable in the middle, finishing dryishly sour and thin. Weird as always in this range, but at least original.

Te zuur en te hard namaak voor mij, je proeft niets natuurlijks, enkel artificieel

Geel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zuur en chemisch. Lijkt niet op lambiek en evenmin is citroen te ontdekken. Misschien iets voor de liefhebber, echter niet voor mij. Etiket is inmiddels veranderd.

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.

250ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Light lemon aromas, but a big sour lemon taste. Near-drain pour material. Jings.

Beertobealive (238) - 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 (6812) - 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 (2758) - 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 (3041) - 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...
