Pours a clear golden with no head and no lacing. Nose is of dried prunes and candy. Taste is of raisins and more plums/prunes and really sweet to the point of being cloying. There is still a light tartness behind it all that reminds you that there is still a lambic base underneath. Powdery candies finish. Body is medium, carbonation low and texture is sirupy. On par if not a little better than the average Chapeau but I can’t see how I would ever drink it again. I think I would even turn it down loudly in public if someone tried to serve me it.

Bottle. Pours golden with low white head. Aroma is of fruit ketchup, sugar, plums, skunk. Taste is of sugar, fruits, plums. Palate: Medium-full bodied, soft carbonation. Overall: Not repulsive actually. I’ve seen worst chapeau, but still.

bottle shared by mathieuc, thanks bro. pours unclear golden orange with a very small off-white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. plain sugar, sweet prunes, candies, faint lambic, icing sugar. moderately low carbonation, light body - very oily; cloying fruity-spicy finish. reminiscence of old souvenirs of cheap berry-tropical candies. ugh.

At Maakun’s. Bottle shared by Maakun. Cloudy dark blonde with thin white head. Super sweet, peach candy, rubber, rotten plums, some faint hay lambic notes and funk. Crazy sweet, not worth to mention light tartness. Sugar crystal minerallike texture. Verry light fizzy carbonation.

Called Mirabelle but has some purple plum on the label.... OK. Bottle shared at home. Hazy orange golden with small off white head. Lots of sweet plums, sugary, bandaids, rubber, rotten fruit, rotten hay. Very sweet and light sour. Medium bodied. There’s uctually some lambic here but it’s completely ruined by the massive sweetness. Why?

Bottle shared by Theydon_Bois over RBWG 2016 at the Hyatt - thanks again, Cloin! Pours a cloudy gold color with a fruity tint and a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of rotten stone fruits, yogurt, sugar, straw, spice, and wood. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a tangy, sugary mouthfeel. Gross. I’m glad I only tried about half the Chapeaus he brought. These are terrible.

Bootle split in Fart Dungeon, post PTY, 05/02/16. Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is funky, wood must, sweet fruit. Taste comprises sickly sweet plum, light sour edge, floral. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a sweet drive through. Meh ---- Xickly Xweet garbage.

Bottle shared during RBWG 3016z pours lightly hazy gold with a creamy white head. Some oxidation in the nose, old citrus, tangerine, grass. Medium sweet flavor, sugary and a little syrupy, with minimal sourness, some earth, damp wood. Sugary finish, faint lemon, wood, sugary grains. So so.

375 ml corked and capped bottle. Pale golden color with barely a touch of foam. Sweet fruity aroma. Slightly tart fruity flavor has a bit of the lambic tartness you expect with some plum notes. Not so bad.
