At Maakunís. 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. Thereís uctually some lambic here but itís 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. Iím glad I only tried about half the Chapeaus he brought. These are terrible.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy golden color with almost no head. Aroma is fruity and tart with a honey note. Taste is sweet and fruity with a light astringent feel and again the honey note on the finish. Itís quite good overall, one of the better sweetened fruit lambics.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy golden color with a trace soapy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was rich and sweet with sugar, strong plum jam and nectarine. The flavor was sweet sugar, very strong plum jam, fig and nectarine. Very long finish. Moderately full bodied. Amazing.

pours unclear blonde , no real head . Smell is overpowering sweetness, from the fruit ( syrups ) , as well as a candy-like fruityness . Taste is sweet , very very bit bitter / funky in the beginning, if you seek well , but is instantly overshadowed by the fruitsyrups . Tastes like lemonade . Ending is very sweet as well, just like you drank lemonade instead of beer. Not really good, since this contains alcohol and is more expensive, Why not just drink lemonade? I never really understood what crowd de Troch tried to get with this series of beer .. never met anyone who liked them ...
