look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

'11 + '12 bottle opened back to back at shawdeuce22's birthday tasting. Poured into Lawson's snifter. This review is of the '12 with some added notes from the '11. Thanks hevvymetalhippie and standardcherry for the bottles.

A- Pours a peach colored orange that's mostly translucent with some slight haze. A light thin white head forms that recedes to leave just a ring around the edges. Decent carbonation with fast rising carbonation bubbles.

S- Lightly tart with a nice funk presence typical of Cantillon that balances nicely with fruity apricots and a slight lemon acidity.

T- Fruity apricots and a hint of lemons with a nice balanced funk that goes well with the apricots. Finishes with a lightly sour lemony apricot presence. The '11 Fou has very little fruit presence with added funk.

M- Medium bodied, a hint of wateriness which in my opinion adds to the drinkability, nice carbonation that lightly tingles the palate.

O- This was a great fruit lambic that definitely lives up to Cantillon's esteemed reputation in the beer community. The beer is definitely typical of Cantillon and carries the Cantillon musty funkiness that is so unique from they're brewery. The funkiness balances terrifically with a nice peach presence and is highly drinkable for a sour. Glad I was able to try this and I wish obtaining bottles was a little bit easier.

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.
