Brought this out for Jayís bachelor party. Congrats Jay and Patty! Pours a hazy faint orange in color with a small amount of tight white head. The nose is perfection....the pinnacle of what every beer should smell like. Itís like apricot purťe, apricot jam, and fresh apricot skin all shoved into one glass. Itís bliss. The flavor is a balance of apricot, lemon, oak, and funk. Itís incredibly sour, but not yet bracing. I much prefer fresh Fou Foune to aged bottles because of the balance sour and apricot. Mouthfeel is light, itís acidic, gentle carbonation, and a long, pleasant finish. Iím hard pressed to think of many beers that surpass Fou Foune in quality. It is one of the best fruit lambic from probably the best brewery in the world. I need like 70 more bottles of this.

A 750ml bottle at the brewery. I believe it was bottled in August 2015. Poured into a Cantillon tasting glass. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head with pretty good retention and left sparse lacing. Aromas are funky, sour, apricot, stone fruit and citrusy lemon. Taste is sour, tart, apricot, mango, orange, barnyard, hay with a hint of vinegar. Crisp, light bodied with moderate spritzy carbonation. Overall, this was just wow. Really really good. Easily a must buy in my book and Iím definitely on the lookout for it.

Bright by somewhat hazy golden orange color with off-white lacing. Juicy aroma of apricots, yogurt, and oak. Quite tart in taste. Light body, crisp, and lively. Long finish of tart apricots.

Pours a hazy orange with some white foam around the edges of the glass. Noses like Haribo peaches and you pretty much cant beat that. I love that smell and it never fails. The fresher the bottle the more intense of course. Taste is fruity initially and along the lines of the nose. But there is a layer of mineral stone fruits and bretty, farmy, maybe even cheesy flavour that is all up in the mix as well. I think apricots and peach works very well in sour, but of all the beers with those fruits incorporated, Fou Foune reigns supreme. Fou Foune is King and I dont think you can beat it.

Bottle from Dranken Geers. Sweet and sour stone fruit, pickle juice, watermelon, and faint, sweet banana aroma. Cloudy but effervescent gold under a lasting, white blanket. Sour orange and apricot and dry, with no bitterness, but crisp and very thirst quenching. Light body, medium high carbonation, mouth puckering.
