750ml bottle of 2010 into a New Belgium goblet. Thanks to xpimptasticx for the share!
Pours a very bright, golden blonde body with a tiny-bubbled tuft of white head. Good carbonation. Absolutely fantastic aroma: delicate apricot floods the nose, as if I were biting into the fruit itself. Hints of peach rind, wheat, and lemongrass in the background. Incredibly fragrant.
Flavor is delicious--tart and fruity with hints of peach sourness hitting the sides of the tongue. Very bright and fresh, and the tartness doesn't overpower the palate. The apricot gets a bit lost after a few sips, but that's to be expected. Excellently carbonated, the light body glazes the palate with ease. Just a well-crafted beer...Fou Foune is a Cantillon sour at it's finest.

4.29/5 rDev -7.3%

August 2013 bottling. Teku glass.
A: Pours an apricot-tinted straw color, with a generous finger of fine, foamy off-white head. A solid cap sits on the surface for a good few minutes. Very good clarity and some champagne-like bubbles.
S: Sweet apricot flesh, hay, some nice supporting spice character (oak, cinnamon, and vanilla frosting-like), apple cider, and a moderate dose of earthy barnyard. The apricot is deep and very well integrated, but by no means dominant, which may be a plus or minus.
T: Bretty earthiness up front, with mild apricot, just a touch of tartness, finishing bone dry (with some of the tartness carrying through) with more earth/herbal notes, as is common to Cantillon. The flavors are well integrated and interesting but pretty restrained.
M: Medium body and medium-high, slightly sharp carbonation.
O: Highly drinkable, nice subtle flavors, and good complexity. Though it’s tasty, I don’t quite understand the fascination with this beer. I’d prefer St. Lamvinus or LP Kriek by far.
