Shared 750 ml bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a very small head. Aroma is tart and funky with unripe peaches. Taste is nicely balanced sourness with the peaches really coming out in the finish. Great beer!

Delicious. Like a slightly un-ripe apricot. And those are the best kind of apricots.

In assoluto una delle birre più buone del mondo. Il fruttato rilevante e accattivante delle albicocche è accompagnato dal sentore acido netto che ci si aspetta da un maestro come cantillon. Ogni volta che mi trovo davanti a un bicchiere di Fou Foune comprendo la ragion d’essere di qualcosa come le birre artiginali. Le birre artigianali esitono affiché possa esitere un miracolo come la Fou Foune di Cantillon.

Bottle (Bottled 28.aug 2012). Pours a cloudy pale orange with a large head. Diminishes rapidly to a centimetre thick without leaving any lacings. Flowery aroma with loads of peach and apricot. Mellow tartness and acidity, and a faint hint of wood. Taste is refreshingly sour with high levels of carbonation. Fantastic citrusy, acidic fruityness. Fizzy on the palate. Dry finish witch leaves a light bitter, acidic touch. Doesn’t get much better than this! :)

Huge thanks to Jake for sharing this one. Bottle that was apparently pretty fresh. Pours gold, murky, some white head. Aroma of barnyard peaches diaper fruitylicious yeah! Cantillon. Taste:fruit, peach, really surprisingly dry; funky but not tart. So nice. Dirty and great. Wait, this is apricot? Man, I really don’t know my fruits. I suck. This beer doesn’t suck, though -- this beer is pretty damned tasty.

November 26, 2013 - attack of the fruited sours continues. Light orange pour with large amount of head that lasted for a while. Aroma was a little bit sour, but also a nice sweet light fruit / apricot and some yeast / barnyard funk came through as it warmed. I am just digging this interesting aroma. The taste was nicely balanced. Some tartness in there, but well balanced by the sweet fruit and the funky yeast. Had the Cascade Apricot right before and this just blows it away. 2012 vintage. Happy Birthday Darcy!

Notes from backlog. Oh dear, what a powerful flavor! Overpowering acidity, and really made me do my "happy sour face". Hints of apricot are present, but mostly just citrusy and vinegar sourness.
