Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Cantillon sampler glass. Bottled August 10, 2013. Acquired in a trade with WilliamDbar, thank you for hooking me up with my biggest ISO yet! Opened in celebration of my engagement this past weekend!

Appearance - Pours a really hazy, cloudy, bright sunflower yellow body with a loud, fizzy, effervescent white head that reduces pretty quickly to leave a layer of foam behind. I love the artwork on the bottle.

Smell - Wow, the aroma of this beer is absolutely mouth-watering. The apricot aromas are bright, fresh, and juicy while not being overpowering. Fresh fruit salad, including peaches and watermelon, combined with a tart citrus zing, freshly picked flowers, and a splash of Belgian funk make the aroma of this beer absolutely perfect. I couldn't imagine how it could improve in this category.

Taste - First off is a juicy, fruity medley of apricot, peaches, white grapes, nectarine, and citrus. Heavy tartness (not quite sour) takes over to produce dry, crisp notes with the lingering juicy apricot flavor still holding the spotlight. The finish is dry and citrusy. Very well balanced.

Mouthfeel - Crisp, dry, highly carbonated, refreshing, sip demanding. Excellent.

I have been waiting forever to try this whale, as it was my #1 want for over a year. Fou Foune is everything I expected and more. The fruity apricot balanced with the perfect acidity make for a near perfect lambic. Seek it out!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Golden orange with minimal head.

S - Gym socks, blue cheese and a hint of apricot.

T - A little tart, with the apricot flavour appearing very faintly.

M - Slicky, oily mouthfeel.

O - Funky, moderately tart saison flavours, with minimal fruit presence and a lot of blue cheese. Not quite what I was hoping for.
