1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a deep red/amber with extremely thin ring of white bubbles around top of glass. Aroma heavily of apple cider vinegar, oak, cloves and sweep pickle spices. Cloyingly sweet - like artificial sweetener hiding dissolved cherry throat lozenges. Dry finish. KInd of like a kombucha that has been drowned in fake sweetener. Unpleasant. Drain pour.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear caramel colour, small beige head. Light sour aroma, redcurrants, berries, citrus, yoghurt, the typical De Troch slightly off yoghurt smell, pasteurised yoghurt drink. Light sour, quite sweet flavour, hint of lactic acid, yoghurt drink, peach. Decent carbo. Sweet finish, lingering cheap yoghurt drink. Not bad for a Chapeau though, quite drinkable, even in summer.

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Kitty: denne falt i smak hos henne så dette lover godt for sommerens tur til Belgia! Syrligfrisk aroma i vinøs retning. Smaken er passe syrlig og ikke for søt. En lettdrikkelig helårsgueuze!
