3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
$3 single at Binny’s, April 11. Nice smell coming out of the bottle, a fruity wine with plum in the background. Color is a full pilsener range, just a little rosy in the thicker parts, and I’ve got a good-sized white head that collapses into a bowl. Taste is sweet, as other taters notice, but I don’t think of that as a flaw. Maybe if I had let it sit another year or so it might ferment out a little more. But I do find it enjoyable for a fruit flavored beer. I do get some cork, even though I’ve kept it vertical at all times. I’d have another.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet, flavored fruit beer with 4% juice from mirabelles, a member of the plum family, not well-known anymore in Belgium except to old people in the countryside. Off-white, loose, unstable foam, dirty peach blonde colour with pinkish hue, cloudy. Strongly sweet aroma of mirabelles, something between plum and peach, lemonade-like sugar, weak lambic character with some hay, some wood and some sulphur (yeast autolysis?). Sugary taste, bit lemonade-like, plum juice, faint lambic earthiness in the finish, which is otherwise - regrettably - dominated by a cloying, unpleasant sweetness.

Een lekker verfrissend biertje. Een aanrader op warme dagen en beter dan die Lemon.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Slightly hazy bright golden with a small ring of white foam and little lacing. Aroma is lemony with sugary notes, banana (or is it the reminescence of the horrendous Chapeau Banana we had a couple of Chapeau ago) and light acidic notes. Taste is also sugary but not as much as some other from the series. There’s also lemony notes and some herbal presence. Light body. Moderate carbonation (one of the most carbonated from the series). Similar to Chapeau Lemon.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is fruity, somewhat citrusy (lemony), grapes, again a bit of soap. Taste is sweet, fruity, light acidity, not too bad actually, compared to some of the sh*t we’ve been drinking tonight. Palate is lightly carbed, sweet. Drinkable swill.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought this bottle and consumed not long ago - Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Fizzy head. Aroma was light sweet, sugary plums. Flavor was sweet, almost candy like plum soda - this could use a bit more body to it - way too sweet unfortunately. If you’re looking for something mostly inoffensive for people who aren’t too into beer, this might be a fine fruit beverage, but not for someone looking for a lambic.

Bu il y a quelques années, mais je me souviens très bien de ce goût complètement chimique de mirabelle, comme si on avait ajouter 1litre de sirop avec 2litres de bières... Immonde !!!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
More of a plum soda than a beer. Perfectly drinkable, if you’re in the mood for sugar, but not much malt presence. A hint of funk is the most welcome aspect.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Orange yellow appearance. no carbonation. nose is sweet like "sweet tart" candies. Taste is mind glowingly sweet like I get this overwhelming candy taste. no sour, not even plums just fake sweetened like banana flavored vodka.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tangy, and even pleasant mild nose of sharp fruit, and some funk. Hazy dull gold color. Light kiwi and oranges (but not plum) and a small hit of funk. Thin body. Pretty one-dimensional stuff, but a tad better than the other lambics from De Troch.
