An atypical review.

Fou' Foune pours a delight in the glass. A hazy golden straw with a pillowy head to die for for. The apricots come and go with the temperature. They come with a warming glass, to offset the perfectly balanced sourness, and then disappear each time the glass is refilled from the bottle from the fridge. It's not too sour, but neither is it bland. It is Perfectly Balanced

Tonight I drank a bottle on my own as the sun set on my balcony, and I will never forget it.

Thank you Fou' Foune

PS the bloody cork shat itself into the beer as I opened the bottle, but that kind of doesn't go with the rest of the tale, does it?

Thanks a ton to Jeffo for this. 2012 Bottle.

Hazed orange, ring of white head with some lace. The nose here is just insane, juicy apricots, fruity, funky and acidic, musty barnyard notes, fruity-lemon as well, but the apricot on this is just out of this world, top 3 if not the best smelling beers of all time for me. Taste is good but a step down from the nose, that being said it still is fantastic, big puckering sour upfront, apricot and fruit, lemony, tart all the way through, acidity is fairly restrained, but the fruity funk here is just crazy, apricot aftertaste. Dry puckering mouthfeel, medium carbonation and body. This blew me away, I thought it would be good but this was near perfect, drinking the whole bottle alone was a pleasure and would love to do it again sometime.
