3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Cantillon Fouí Foune ) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a Cantillon taster, ABV 5%
Bright orange colour on a mostly clear body, more cloudy on next pours, big white head, thin and fizzy, collapsing fast, leaving a thin line of foam around the glass.
Aroma has plenty of apricots, not very strong aroma but you can find a wide variety of apricots, peel, ripe flesh, unripe too, some
Nice taste, quite sour, musty, leaves, less apricot than I expected, floral notes.
Medium body, good carbonation. Tart on the palate.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle from 2014. Aroma is is very broad spectrum! Lots and lots of apricot peel and even rotten apricot. Musty, cheesy, ascetic acid with a lemon apricot aftertaste. Itís interesting to smell an almost empty glass, comparee to a freshly poured one. The latter offers a combination of co2, yeast and apricot peel/flesh. Slight pepper adds beautifully to the combination. In the end the apricot hints are isolated, which I find true craftmanship.

(bottle - 750 ml - 2013 vintage) Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Lightly fruity aroma that instantly goes tart and sour. Flavor is a sour bomb right in your face. Didnít get any apricot but I didnít care. Lots of amazing sour flavors.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber colour with a clean white head. Superb apricot aroma. Flavour is complex, with the traditional incredibly well-balanced Cantillon tartness competing with the richer sugary apricot flavours. Fine carbonation. Very tasty.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BD ShepBush, drank at home. Pours slightly hazy deep gold, fizzy head rises and dies almost instantly. Nose of luscious juicy apricot stone fruit, big bretty funk, sour cheese, lemony citrus acidity. Tastes almost 100% dry, pretty full-on sourness, more juicy sharp apricots, natural yoghurt, lemony acidity, brett funk, buttery oak. Light body, creamyish mouthfeel, medium prickly carb, super-long sour finish with all the cheesy juicy funky elements all mingled. As expected this is superb.
