The long-awaited Fou' Foune pours a cloudy, light amber-peach hue with hardly any head to mention.
Aroma is boisterous in its proclamation of dirty socks, Brett, funky barnyard notes, leather, oak, and a mild hint of the apricots on which this lambic was soaked. Interesting.
The apricot fruit adds another dimension to the lambic in how it softens it -- this isn't the strip-the-enamel-off-your-teeth lambic monster, but rather a more well rounded, softer beer. The apricot flavor comes out first, while the typical lemon rind, citrusy notes reminiscent of Cantillon lambic appear on the finish. Lively acidity cuts at one's stomach.
Fairly "alive" in terms of carbonation, this a fairly smooth lambic. Medium bodied palate. Round overall.
Fou' Foune is refreshing in the way that Cantillon lambics tend to be. A fantastic beer that ought to be experienced by lambic fans.

Glad I was able to cross this off my list. Thank's Cory!
Pours a slightly hazy, almost milky, orange hue. It's really resembles peaches. There is an of white head that sits around a half finger size for the entire drink. Tart, acidic, funky, unripe fruits on the nose. You can tell it's going to be delicious. It tastes similar to the nose with a slightly sharper carbonation than I'm used to with other Cantillon beers. You could close your eyes and take a sip and feel like someone liquified the skin of a peach. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect. I would like it just a tad more creamy, and a tad less sharp. This is one of those beers that deserve the hype. It's worth it.
