Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear, orange-tinted apple juice yellow with just a few loose bubbles sticking around for head. The aroma picked up some sweetened apricots, but they came across as stale, and were backed by stale oaky notes.. some soap in there, too.. not good. The flavor was of super-sweetened apricots (fresher, more pleasant use of the fruit, but still stale on the back-end) with old, wet oak and a little barnyard funk in there too.. lots and lots of sugar! This was way too sweet on the palate, muting the nice acidic/tart notes that pop through intermittently.. the stale notes really took away from the enjoyment.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is dishwater, soap and artificial apricot. Flavour is big sugary apricot and paper. Not worth the money.

Im not really getting much flavor from this one. While the is some apricot flavor. The rest has some sugary sweetness contrasted with tart. Not the worst, yet not the best.

The aroma has apricot, sugar, and yeast. The appearance is deep, cloudy, gold with the thinest head. The flavor is weak but it is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall its OK but thats it.

Aroma is sweet and stinking of tropical fruits. Taste is similarly overly sweet like god knows how they managed to get this much sugar in it.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy light orange brown colored body and a oily lacing. The aroma was lambic like dry and smelled of apricots. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of semi-sweet semi-dry apricots. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2007
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden color with a small head. Sweet, slightly tart, fruity aroma of apricots and wheat. Pretty sweet and sugary, mildly tart and acidic flavor of apricots and pear. light to medium body with lowish carbonation. A cheap and sweet lambic, but not as sugary as the worst. One of the few Chapeaus with even some tartness in the aroma.

Bottle. Small off-white head that fully diminished, no lacing, transparent, very, very little carbonation, and a light orange hue. Nose was sweet, sour, tart, sugary, syrupy, and apricots. Flavor was the same with some stickyness and dryness. Mouthfeel was smooth, syrupy and dry. Light body. Nothing to write home about with this one.
