4/5  rDev +37.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Medium golden color, with a touch of haze, and a scattering of white foam.

Aroma: Pronounced aroma of candied pineapple, with an odd hint of fresh mint, and a subtle note of mustiness.

Taste: Very sweet, almost candy-like; this characteristic dominates the taste from start to finish. Late in the taste, the pineapple note comes into its own, and surprisingly enough, there are coconut notes as well, for a surprising, and altogether pleasant pina colada effect.

Mouth feel: Smooth and pleasant, full in body.

Drinkability/notes: A quite pleasant, although rather unconventional fruit lambic, the "pina colada" character of this beer suggests the result if a Belgian brewer decided to make a malternative beverage.

Sampled as a part of the "Night of Chapeau", with my friend and fellow BA HardTarget.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with minimal head and left some lacing on the surface and a thick ring of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderate to strong aromas of pineapples in the aroma, although these seem to be of an artificial variety.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by pineapple flavors. There is a bit of sweetness but no tartness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a light to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has pleasant flavors. It’s an interesting take on the style because not many pineapple beers are available.

3.3/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a very minimal head of large bubbles when poured which dissipates to absolutely nothing but a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pineapple - stronger amounts of artificial pineapple with some hints of real pineapple.

T: Very sweet with strong pineapple flavors - very authentic pineapple flavor.

M: Light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Too sweet to be easy to drink but it is enjoyable. Definitely the most interesting of the Chapeau Lambics that I have tried.
