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.

I should give it a five. Itís amazing, just so classily tart, yet clean and dry and killer. Light fruit coming through. I love how the tart lingers, not too acidic. Ya
