Pours with a copper-ish, iced tea body that shows a fair amount of haziness. The head is well-retained and has a sandy taupe hue, no doubt supplied by the vigorous carbonation level. Quite possibly the most interesting-smelling beer I've come across, Chapeau Faro Lambic has a little bit of everything, and most notes are not commonly associated with beer. Mustard seed, sauerkraut, soy sauce, hot trash, and wild ramps all combine for a venerable witch's brew of a beer. My mind wavers between thinking "eww, that's disgusting" and "ooh...that's interesting".

Oh, yum...whatever trepidation I had with the aroma vanished the instant I tasted this delicious concoction. Sweet Belgian candy and a light, almost ginger-like spice sits on the front of the tongue, quickly giving way to caramel-sugary goodness and a strange, almost salty note. Mouthfeel is bubbly and light, with an almost syrupy viscosity from the sugars. Definitely a beer for those with a sweet tooth, this reminds me of the lambics made by Lindemans. Fun to try, and recommended, but probably not a repeat for me.
