A - Copper orange with a small head. Significant lacing.

S - Sour notes of a fairly straightforward lambic. Some funk and fruit, with a solid sourness in the smell.

T - Too sweet, not enough sour. Hits with a wallop of sugary fruit notes. Apricot generally is not terribly distinctive. What is missing here is a full sour note that balances off the fruit; it is there, but just not robust. As such, the beer does not taste distinctively lambic, despite the nose.

M - There is not enough sour, so the carbonation is not up to the task of scrubbing the syrup feeling off the tongue. So the beer becomes cloying.

O - I like my lambics on the sweet side, but this is a bit too much.

Served from a bottle at Lexington Beerworks (KY)

Medium amber (like apple juice); excellent clarity; Decent head and lacing.

Moderately fruity aroma without a specific apricot tone; light oak/farmhouse character; a bit floral.

Flavor: Apricot? Certainly fruity. apple and pear juices. Hint of banana. Moderately tart and slightly sweeter. Mildly funky.

Medium body; medium carbonation.

3.15/5  rDev -5.1%

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of apricots are present in the nose.
T:The taste has light to moderate flavors of apricot syrup along with a dash of sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Out of all of the Chapeau beers I've tried, this beer has flavors that taste the most artificial.

3.76/5  rDev +13.3%

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation and some peach + apricot + orange highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweetened apricots and light hints of oak.

T: There is a moderate flavor of sweetened apricots upfront with some lighter hints of oak. Overall the beer is moderately sweet with some light hints of tartness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly sticky.

O: I enjoyed this beer like I have the other Chapeau beers but it is definitely something I need to be in the mood for... I could not drink these all the time because they are just a touch too sweet. Great flavors of that naturally sweet apricots.

1.3/5  rDev -60.8%

This bottle has to be at least three years old. The cork was half soaked and smelled of vinegar. This beer pours a bright pumpkin orange in color with moderate carbonation and no head. The nose is strange. It smells of steamed carrots with butter and brown sugar with a slight metallic tinge. Pretty bad in my opinion. The flavors are sweet and artificial, almost like a chewing gum. It leaves the foul carrot like, vegetable after taste behind which is unsettling. It's sweet and syrupy and undrinkable. This is a horrible introductory lambic. Lindemans puts this brand to shame.
