Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle. Dark iced tea body with a medium ring of loose bubbles. Nose-smells like a fish tank store, factory floor, artificial sweetener. Taste-Sweet! Fish food, apple, grape, light sour tarts, some tea, sweet grapefruit juice, wax, cherry, very sweet, almost non-existent funk, sweet and sticky dominates. For what its worth, this should be classified as a Faro. The overall flavor is not bad, but it has almost no gauze qualities and it is mind numbingly sweet and cloying.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2007
A Mes rate: 37.5cl bottle at Kerstfest, Essen.
Dirty brown colour. Sickly sweet, light spice and every bit like a really bad faro. So horribly sweet its pretty much undrinkable. Awful.

yespr (32298) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2007
37.5 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium as Chapeau winter geueze 5.5%. Pours hazzlenut brown with a lacing off-white head. Berry fruity aroma with notes of malt and slight note of liqourice. Flavour is sweet malty, caramel with a classic geueze towards faro like note. Finish is sweet with a solid malt base lingering. Nice yet simple.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 20, 2007
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Light brown/amber with tan head and lace. Very mild funk aroma with sugar and cherry and spice. Sweet fruity flavor with unpleasant cloying spiced finish. Medium body and carb. Seems to miss all the characteristics of a gueuze that I am aware of, though Im not a gueuze expert.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2007
Bottled@Kerstbierdestival, Essen (as Chapeau Winter Gueuze, 5.5%). Hazy amber colour with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet fruits and sugar. Flavour is quite much the same along with papery hints. One of the better Chapeaus.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
(Bottled@Kerstbierfestival 2007, Essen) Hazy amber with a small head. Sweet aroma of raspberry-blueberry marmalade. Sugary-caramely-malty flavor with faint oaky hints. Sticky-sweet, thin palate with low carbonation. Aroma was quite ok, but otherwise its just sugary crap.

SHIG (3667) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle Kerstbierfestival 2007: Poured a brown with off white head. The aroma is wheat, sugar, with a touch of cardboard. The taste was sweet spice and some copper pennies, still drinkable. One of the better than average beers in the chapeau line.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Bottled - had as Winter Gueuze at 5.5% ABV. Unclear dark amber beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma is very spicy, as well as very light notes of bret, and some spices. Very weird flavor - very sweet, very spicy, cinnamon, leading a dry spicy finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a decent red/orange with an aroma of store-bought beets and cedar. Decent head of off-white. Tangy, sweet/sour earthy strawberry with beets and sugar in a big, boiling pot of stew. Decent mouthfeel. Eh, not as bad as the ratings indicate.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Dark red color with white head. Dry cedar and sugar on the nose. Some fruit as well. Body is a little on the sweet side with some spices blended in.
