Bottled in '07

Pours a hazy cedar with shades of peach. Thick white head has excellent lacing and settles to a thin cover.

Nose has tart citrus, apricots, manure, oak, horse blanket and earthy soil. The apricot presence really grows as this warms and pairs beautifully with the many other complex aromas.

Taste is quite sour and acidic up front followed by sweet malts, oak, barnyard funk, sharp citrus fruits and apricots.

Crisp body is delicately carbonated with a nice dry finish. Another amazing lambic from Cantillon.

Brought this out for Jay’s bachelor party. Congrats Jay and Patty! '11 vintage poured into a Cigar City snifter.

A-Pours a hazy faint orange in color with a small amount of tight white head.

S-The nose is perfection....the pinnacle of what every beer should smell like. It’s like apricot purée, apricot jam, and fresh apricot skin all shoved into one glass. It’s bliss.

T-The flavor is a balance of apricot, lemon, oak, and funk. It’s incredibly sour, but not yet bracing. I much prefer fresh Fou Foune to aged bottles because of the balance sour and apricot.

M-Mouthfeel is light, it’s acidic, gentle carbonation, and a long, pleasant finish.

O-I’m 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.
