mmmbeer (1275) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle poured into tumbler- poured dark amber, medium carbonation, white head formed and dissolved. Aroma of reminds me of an non alcoholic wine for some reason, alot of sugar. Hits the mouth with a thin body, alot of sugar has been added, finish collapses, very little sourness to this. What were they thinking?

bu11zeye (12040) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2007
(Bottle, labeled Winter Gueuze) Pours a glistening clear amber body with a small off-white head. The burnt plastic aroma upfront is overpowering, but later subsides with notes of corn syrup, ammonia, spoiled fruit, light cork, and some herbal qualities. Flavor of sweet corn syrup (surprise!), mint, light fruitiness, and some herbs.

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 it’s 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 (7117) - 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 it’s pretty much undrinkable. Awful.

yespr (33244) - 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 (1936) - 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 I’m not a gueuze expert.

oh6gdx (21383) - 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 it’s just sugary crap.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
SHIG (3751) - 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 (29989) - 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.
