750ml bottle, split and served on our last night on Sussex

2010 vintage - brought back from Brussels

appearance: very cool label - corked and capped, cork is removed to explosion of life...served in a delirium chalice - bright golden-orange body, active white foam

smell: wickedly tart - apricot, peach, sour grape, hay and straw, acidic

taste: very very tart - prototypical cantillon wild yeasts - the apricot adds a lovely complexity ripe with sweet fresh fruit. this twists the tongue like a gueuze and the tartness cuts the sweetness in a way that really confuses the taste buds (in a great way). As anticipated, very high quality stuff.

mouthfeel: sour, tongue buckling, light

overall: great

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I've had this a couple of times recently ... reviewed from 2 sets of paper notes.. Thanks to inflatablechair and alehousedave ... Very cool fellas.. Thanks Sammy and Dave!! I truly appreciate it.

Pours a hazed golden with nice white lacing and decent retention.

The nose is amazing... I could smell a goblet all night and never complain.. bright fruit and the expected Cantillon funk.. lactic and dry lemon and white wine barrel goodness... fantastic.

Flavor is lemony and tart... the apricots come out swinging mid palate and dry out immediately leaving a long funky fruity finish.. dirty brett and dank basement funk... antique books (yep, I've tasted the paper... you should too) the fruits are the main player at the end of the day.

Loving the spritzy carbonation with a still light/medium body... fruity lambic done right.... I believe the apricot pulp adds some body that makes it a touch heavier and enjoyable.

I can't... CAN NOT believe that I've passed on Fou Foune over the years.... I am a moron... that said, I am happy to have friends who are smarter than I am. Sam and Dave are good folks for sure.

3.5/5/4.5/4/4.5
