4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very tasty. I’m not sure if this is the same thing as ’Cochonnette,’ but it’s certainly much better than that beer’s ratings would indicate. Cidery, with a long finish. Lots of different flavors going on here. Minimal head.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very big aroma, and a taste of sweetness. They used quite a bit of orange peel in this one. Slightly too sweet, but still drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately yeasty (basement/mold, cobwebs), with notes of cork, bubble gum, orange peel, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Musty and odd.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
clear, amber, thin collar. Very aromatic. the orange peel and coriander really stand out along with something else i cannot quite describe. Taste is very bold, sweet and spicy.Something in there reminds me of butane or lighter fluid or something. I was burping up orange peels 3 sips into it. Very unbalanced. Tough to finish the bottle. Not for me boys.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
dirty red-amber colour, no foam, plum aroma, sweet, alcohol presence, unbalanced and slightly disgusting - a beer who lives up to its name !

So much going on in this bottle its hard to say. I taste much corriander and orange rind. and I was drawn to the label.

Amber-red colour; winey, sourish, pruney aroma; brandyish taste; the sweetness offsets the Vapeur house character. But, since the house character is why I love their other beers so much, that sweetness is why I find this to be my least favourite from this fine brewery.
