Look- Sweet golden color that even Scrooge McDuck would approve of.

Smell- An apricot and Funk making sweet love during a slightly cool evening.

Taste- The juices from their love making! A little soured just the way he wanted it.

Feel- An apricot going down a slip n slide and into a cool pool.

Overall- What is there to say about this beer that hasn't already been said Catholic Priests? Fruity, refreshing and keep away from children.

2014. An amazing beer in every sense. A perfect combination of funk, sour, and fruit.

Had side by side with dG Imp Apricot Bu and CCB Apricot Grove. I realize neither are lambic, but Fou was such a clear winner. Always a treat.

Appearance: pours a light milky straw color. Less than a finger of a white head forms with a strong retention. as it swirls around semi solid lacing. it has a Milky haze and is completely opaque.

Smell: apricot, funky. Sour. Vinegar. Light wheaty base

Taste: opens with juicy apricots to nectarine flesh, lots of fruity flavors mostly citrus and stone fruit. in the middle comes a barnyard funk along with some solid oak flavors. lemon juice and a very light acidity comes through. slight wheat malt backbone. mild to low vinegar

Mouthfeel: lighter feel, quite a bit of funkiness but nothing over powering. some vinegar and a light acidity. very strong refreshing qualities.

Overall: a seriously killer beer. has all the funk you could want while remaining not only drinkable but refreshing as well. amazing fruit and sour qualities.
