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.

2014 bottle, 2.5 years old. Incredible aroma, canít imagine a more perfect nose on a sour. Appearance is brilliantly clear and brass-yellow of color. Taste and palate are great, but very very tart at 2.5 years old. Apricot flavor seems subdued over time though. Fantastic beer, wish i had it younger though!

75cl bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 07-12-2016.
Bottled: 29 august 2016.
In short: tasty smooth lambic.
Pours quite hazy deep gold with frothy white head. Short head retention, good lacing.Tart nose, some apricot, grapy, some horseblanket. Medium body, high carbonation, little crispy texture. Taste is little tart at the beggining, some apricot, little brett character, then turns quite smooth and creamy palated. Very well balanced and enjoyable. Lovely one.

On tap at Moeder Lambic. 2016 edition. It poured a hazy golden colour with a minimal white head. Slightly sour aroma but not massive. Farmhouse, acidic notes. Apricot perhaps. Flavour is bitter and acidic, but again itís a mellow acidic. Lots of citrus but also hay, grass and some tropical fruits. I normally donít like sours but this is a good beer. Medium long, lingering aftertaste.

Silvan7 (1192) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 14, 2016
On tap @ LambicZoon Milano. Giallo ambrato, velato, schiuma bianca grossolana poco persistente. Aroma intenso, pungente, fruttato, citrico, classico delle fermentazioni spontanee, luppolo vecchio, polvere, pelle del salame. quando il naso si assuefŗ, arrivano i profumi secondari di albicocca essicata e marmellata. Gusto estremamente acido. Fruttato citrico, quasi nessuna attenuazione da parte delle albicocche. Poco corposa, poco carbonata, estremamente spigolosa, piena, basso il calore alcolico. Equilibrata, decisamente armonica.
