38cl, alias Chapeau Winter Gueuze, from Geers Oostakker, not complex sweet gueuze (Winter brew), not balanced, clear, nearly no head, nothing special kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2009 375mL bottle. Pours a light chestnut color, capped with a thin beige head. Aroma of spruce bark, spice, dust, and some berry. Spice and spruce are the primary flavors, with some caramel, brown sugar, and strawberry. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. Better than most Chapeaus, but still too sweet for me.

Ruby red coloured beer with a firm white head. Very sweet and siropy beer. Maybe I’m wrong but somehow this beer reminds me of faro. Not my style, but not bad on a winter evening. (Corked bottle 37,5cl) blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2008

Angry fist of Santa tasting at Chris_o’s. Sweetish fruit aroma. Clear amber, thin white head. Very fruity. It’s like a strawberry/cherry fruit drink. Fruit syrup. thewolf (12757) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008

Pours hazy brown-golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of spices and a little berries. Okay mouthfeel, though it is a bit thin. Flavour is all metal, light tartness and completely unbalanced cherry and spiciness. Yuk!
<i>Belgian Beer Fest at the Muddy Pig.<i> I believe this was at least a two year old bottle. Copper color with no head. Light aroma of cherries and wood. The cherry lingers through the taste. Very sugary... I’m thinking brown sugar. Just enough sourness to be noticeable. Viscous. I honestly don’t see what’s bad about this at all. It might be closer to a strongly sour Flemish, but I am a fan. cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 23, 2008
Cloudy deep amber. Notes of overripe fruit and caramalt. Some wood developes in mouth. Very sweet taste and little sourness in finish. KimJohansen (10511) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2008
Cloudy amber with tiny short lasting off white head. Sweet fruity aroma sourish berries, caramel and malty notes. Sweet flavor with hints of berries, wood, caramel and hay.
