On draft at the Tap and Mallet 1/17/12

5.5oz poured into a small wine glass

A: Sublime. A gorgeous cloudy golden orange. Starts with a two-finger head that settles to a nice cap. One of the most inviting beers I've seen.

S: Funk! Barnyard, horse blanket...all those typical descriptors.

T: Heavy brett but with more dimensions than I'm accustomed to. Moderate lactic sourness. Apricot provides just a touch of sweetness but this isn't an in-your-face fruit beer. It's more about the yeast, the tartness and the bugs.

M: Excellent. Plentiful carbonation combines with the sourness to give you the essential lambic experience.

O: I'm really glad I got to try this. I kept wanting to come back to it. Couldn't let it sit for very long between sips. If the bottled version is even better, then I'd love to get some.

Had on tap at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, poured into a Cantillon stem glass!
A: A cloudy light orange look, what a great color. Very consistent, the clouds don’t float around its extremely cloudy all over rather than in spots.
S: Sour and funky, like most cantillon lambics. It has that “Belgian” smell to it and I don’t really detect any fruit.
T: Sour all over, much more than anything else they make. Tastes somewhat like their gueuze but nothing special. Lots of carbonation in this one.
M: Sour with some apricot and peach notes on the end of the palate.
O: I’m really disappointed with this beer. I had really hoped this would be amazing as it’s impossible to find and everyone wants to try it. Really, it reminds me of their gueuze, just not as good. Certainly not bad and I’d try it again but I wouldn’t jump through the hoops that people do to try this (it’s just not worth it). B to B + range.

Enjoyed on-tap at Armsby Abbey. Missed bottles that sold in 30 minutes, a great treat to drink this on-tap instead.

A- Golden orange hue body poured into Cantillon wine glass. Complete yeast haze throughout. Nice foamy white head with good size and retention. Patches of lace.

S- Great mix of Cantillon funky bugs and apricot flesh, more apricot here than flavor. Oak and lemon sours as well.

T- More going on overall, a huge fruit pit flavor here more than actual apricot flesh. Barnyard, lemon sours, big oak, some funk but not a ton, grass, peppercorn, some bread when sour subsides, acetic grape, apple. Complex and diverse flavor profile.

MF- Foamy light body with big carbonation. Obvious tart sour feel overall. Silky smooth, perfect for style.

A great Cantillon, love the aroma and apricot flavor mixed with that classic Cantillon bug funk, a true treat for a surprisingly low price.

On tap into an 25 cL glass at Novare Res on 12/15/11.

a: golden with a white head.

s: complex, sour, lemon zest, dried hay, I can see why some people say "horse blanket" but not sure I can call that as I don't think I've ever tried smelling one of those, but it has a wild animal funk (not in a bad way).

t: sour, citrusy, some champagne-like flavors, fermented white grapes, yeasty.

m: crisp, refreshing, good carbonation, no complaints here at all.

o: I'm pretty new to sours and this is honestly an awesome experience. I would highly recommend this beer. My wife even liked it a lot as it seemed more champagne-like than what one thinks of as a typical beer. Very complex overall.

2010 vintage poured on tap at hamiltons tavern. Pours a nice, golden staw color, hazy, no head. Only a few specks of foam hang around. Nose has soft apricots, belgian yeast esters, hay, and a pinch of sweet fruity candy. On the tongue it follows suit, sour apricots, dry, yeasty, in the middle thru the end Im reminded of an easy saison. Finishes with a dry champange feel. Although not very heady, lots of carb bubbles come thru in the mouth. No bite. Not overly sour, only slightly puckering. I am very excited to have tried this. It has been a huge want for me and it makes me even more anxious to land a bottle of it. Thanks santa.

Pours out a bright apricot orange looking pour with a thin white head, that for a lambic, actually stuck around for a little while.

Smell is right on, massively tart and sour with plenty of apricot all over it. Stays away from funk/horse blanket/sweaty socks and just drills you with fruit and sour that is so clean. Taste remains like the nose, awesome, clean, and powerful. How something so sour can retain so much of a fruit presence at the same time, well, that's why it got a 5.

Its just simply phenomenal stuff, never does the sour and fruit dissipate or become 'normalized' with your taste buds. Top notch.

On tap at beachwood bbq.

Had on draft at Beachwood BBQ

A: This one pours a pale straw (ever so slightly hazy) color, and is topped with a thin bone white head. Head is not much to speak of nor is the lacing.

S: Stone fruit (Apricot for sure), Meyer lemon, and a subtle grassy note.

T: Very acidic up front mellowing into in the middle with the most incredibly tight carbonation I have experienced to date. Tart apricot and white peach dominate, this is a joy to drink albeit not the most complex joy.

M: Soda Fizz. This has a very lengthy finish and again I have to note that the carbonation is most impressive. I figure it would easily be fantastic 10 years from now.

Had this on 8/8/11 at Monk's Mad Monday featuring Brasserie Cantillion. This was the 2008 Fou Foune. Served in 6-oz. portion in an 8-oz. wine-like glass. From my tasting notes:

Pours cloudy yellow with very little head after the pour. Smells of pure funk - barnyard aromas, musty, yet inviting. A little bit of old moldy-like wood. Acetic vinegar aromas permeate throughout. Tastes sour but not overly puckering. Hints of apricot. Tastes vinegar-like and inviting: great tasting. If this is a prime lambic example, I'm hooked!!!

On tap at Beachwood Sourfest 2011

5.5 oz pour into a taster flute (had 3 of these)

Pours a nice murky yellow with fuzzy white fluff coating the edges of the glass and topping the body.

Why don't more beers use truck loads of apricots in them? The smell is outstanding. Extremely fresh apricots laced with lemon rind and sprinkled with a delicate peppery spice. So simple, but done to perfection.

Taste follows with the same idea. Very well balanced between the juicy apricot and acidic lemons.

Mouthfeel is nice a creamy. I wish it were a little more acidic, but can't knock it too much since I enjoyed it quite a bit and it makes it hard not to overlook any flaw.

Very glad I got to try this. My only problem is that my girlfriend absolutely loved it so now I have to find a bottle or two for a special occasion. Oh well, can't complain.

On-tap at Beachwood I, 2010 Vintage,

A: Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head, nice spotty lace.

S: Apricot and lemon, with a lot of acid, true fruit smell.

T: The apricot is there, the fruit is true and lends complexity. The lactic acid is prevalent, but melds seemlessly with the apricot to make a stone fruit/lemon mix that is delicious.

M: Medium to high acidity, crisp and clean. Soft easy carbonation, beautifully structured.

O: Another fantastic lambic from Cantillon. Not a traditional fruit, but it certainly works. I have been wanting to try this for some time and it did not disappoint. Great beer.

Brasserie V's Pre Party for Great Taste of the Midwest Poured on tap into a snifter.

A- Pours a murky yellow straw color that is hard to see through, one finger white head that dissipates to a nice white layer on top, minimal lacing on the side.
S- The aroma is fantastic, this might be one of the best smelling beers I’ve ever had. Fresh Fresh Apricot upfront, slight peach aroma, nice funk and oak in the background.
T- The taste is sour apricot right away, slight lemon and peach flavors in the background, really sour, mouth puckering, some peppery spice notes, tart, slight oak flavor, this one is truly delicious.
M- Medium mouth feel, well carbonated, coats the palate with an amazing sour apricot flavor, dry on the finish.
O- This was truly a privilege to drink. The best sour I’ve had to this day, pretty drinkable for how sour it was, I could not put it down, savored the last drop for as long as I could. I need to hunt down a bottle of this gem.

Had the 09 vintage a couple of days ago from the bottle and I was blown away. This beer is even better than I remembered it to be. The apricot is phenomonal.

'07 vintage poured into a 6oz wine glass at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia.

Big bright and gorgeous fluorescent yellow beer sits in my glass with light fizzies floating on the top and no head. Aroma more subtle than I expected. Slight citrus notes and not as acidic as I imagined, more of a funky floral musk which tempered my expectations.

Initial sips were a tasty, sour, gueuze-like lambic that left me somewhat underwhelmed. As the glass warmed, the flavors began to pull through fast and furiously. Bracingly sour and acidic, pronounced barnyard funkiness and a shockingly big finish of apricot goodness that totally floored me for an '07 vintage.

Mouthfeel was extremely prickly from the carbonation and puckering from the extreme acidity. Dry finish.

Truly a world class beer that deserves it's standing among the elite lambics. Not worth mortgaging your house over, but undoubtedly something to seek out and try if you should ever get the opportunity.

I was fortunate enough to have the 2007 and 2008 poured side by side at monk's Cantillon event today. For me, the 08 was the highlight of the day, the 07 was extraordinary as well, but not as mind blowing as the 08.

The beer was foaming up a bit, but this sour initially had a surprisingly creamy tight head. The 08 was a bit cloudy, while the 07 was very clear. Both approximately apricot (duh) colored. The aroma was amazing for the 08, and very good for the 07 as well. The 08 was more aromatic and fruity. You can reallly tell this is a big apricot beer. The 07 was more sour and less fruity. The highlight of the aroma was the funk rather than the fruit.

The 08 tasted like a tart refreshing amazing apricot funky glass of heaven. The sourness was a bit more pronounced than the aroma suggested. 07 was big sour funk and the fruit was a bit more subdued. Both had a mild tannic oaky thing happening which was really nice.

It was a nice light and tangy beer, maybe a bit under carbonated, but that very well could have been because some of the taps were pouring foamy and to best serve everyone, they poured it into a pitcher and then poured the glasses.

Overall this was an outstanding beer that I was fortunate enough to be able to try. While I have been venturing into sour beer, the 08 version of this beer is the best I have ever had and confirmed my love for wild yeast. Outstanding.

on tap at farmers cabinet in philly

Pours a hazed golden yellow color with a haze of white head. Retains well while drinking, leaves wispy film and patches of lacing.

Extremely fragrant nose, big time funk and tart but with a pleasant balance. Some wheat and biscuit malt, spritzy and fruity with apricot and pear.

Decent sour blast right up front with some acid and fruit. Decent funk and yeast, balanced by some fruit sweetness and a noticeable amount of apricot. Lighter malt base with biscuit and tartness. Continuing sour notes with fruit, extremely balanced and pleasant while drinking. Finishes dry, tart, and lingers on the palate forever.

Lighter medium body, higher carbonation, dry and lingering after swallowing. Another absolutely wonderful beer from Cantillon - excellent flavor and great use of apricot.

Pours a hazed gold color, orange highlights. Minimal ring of bubbles, leaves some lacing. First scent brings a definite tart and sour profile, fruit punches through quite aggressively with appricot being backed by peach, a fresh malted grain profile peeks through along with some musty earthyness. Taste is quite impressive - sour and tart without becoming overly puckering, strong fruit notes without being too sweet. Apricot supported by notes of peach and even a touch of berry. grains are musty and lightly damp but freshly dried. Medium bodied, great carbonation level. Great great beer from Cantillon. Bold fruit notes and n control tartness.

On tap at The Farmers Cabinet for their Philly Beer Week event Belgian Beer Geek Brunch. 7 ounce pour served into a stemmed miniature wine looking glass.

A: Hazy orange / golden body with a thin pure white foam ring around the glass. No lace is present but some carbonation bubbles can be seen clinging to the glass for a second or two, then releasing.

S: Apricots, tart strawberry candy notes, pucker mix, peach.

T: Immediate wash of tart, ripe fruits notably apricot and peach coat the palate. A slight grain note is in the back-end of the palate, finishing with more ripened fruits - pear - with almost a caramel twist. Very interesting and quite complex, absolutely delicious.

M: Light bodied, effervescent and crisp. Perfect for the style. I did have to knock some points off because this left an extremely dry and almost uncomfortable feel in my mouth.

It's was a true pleasure to finally sample the iconic Fou' Foune from Cantillon and it was worth the hefty price tag that came per ounce. One to sip and savor, in my opinion.

Tried on bottle and tap. I prefered the tap version as the apricots were so intense in the aroma as the bottle had more funk and barnyard. Apricot, lemon and peach flavors. Moderate acidity for a Cantillon. The palate could be drier and the carbonation more lively but this a stellar offering by Cantillon once again.

On tap at Brouwer's on 5/26/11 poured into champagne glass.

A: Pours a cloudy light orange color with thin white head, no lacing left around glass.

S: Really bright with ripe, tart apricots in the forefront, some funk, earthy and citrus notes are detectable beneath the powerful apricot aroma.

T: This is fantastic, really tart with lots of fruit from the apricots, sour with not much sweetness. Like the aroma there are some funky and earthy flavors that go along perfectly with the tart fruit. My favorite lambic I have had to date.

M: Very tart with moderate carbonation, finishes pretty dry.

O: I really love this, the apricot goes along perfectly with all the funky, earthy flavors and sourness of the lambic. Absolutely delicious and highly drinkable, another incredible creation from Cantillon.

On tap at The Trappist on March 25, 2011 for a Shelton Brothers event.

Poured into a tall crystal tumbler glass (didn't get a Cantillon silk screened crystal glass for this one =( ), beer is a sunny and warm yellow orange with a finger of white foamy head. Head receded into a collar quickly, leaving light lacing on the edge of the glass. Large amount of carbonation seen through the slightly hazy beer.

Nose is sweet stone fruit, apricots and peaches, sour lemon and sour apple, apricot skin astringency, earthy soil funk.

Taste follows the nose, sour fruits and astringent fruit peels, then some sweet and juicy apricots and peaches. Lingering apricot sweetness, stone fruit pit, and earthy funk on the tongue. Very delicious.

Light bodied with soft carbonation. Draft may be a lot less carbonated then from bottle, so I'll have to track down a bottle for comparison. Refreshing, easy to drink lambic, with mild but present tartness, sweet fruits and earthy funk. Well made beer.

On tap at Hill Farmstead Winter Festival.

Big, puffy, foamy, white head. Hazy, straw color. Laces glass the entire drinking experience.

A - Apricot is immediately evident, but subtle and pleasant. Expected funk mixes wonderfully with must and just a touch of bite.

T - Pleasantly tart apricots and fresh bitterness on the finish. Wonderfully balanced blend of funk and sharpness.

M - Just the right amount of body that balances with good carbonation and sourness.

D- Entirely too drinkable, frankly. Truly excellent.

This lambic pours a mild yellow color with a thin head.

Apple and cherry notes greet the nose, followed by a good amount of funk. When I say a good amount, I mean that it doesn't overwhelm the olfactory gland.

The taste is full of sourness, bursting with cherry essence. It's not a "fruity" lambic per se.

Not much to "feel" at the back of the throat. The funk is restrained, which may turn off true fans of the style.

This is truly a balanced and highly enjoyable lambic. It's also somewhat rare around these parts.

On-tap at the Hill Farmstead Winter Festival.

Pours with a huge, foamy, white head. The body is a cloudy, straw, yellowish-orange. Beautiful lacing coats the entire glass.

Cantillon funk, hay and light barnyard on the nose. Apricot, peach and clementine sourness fills the nostrils. Lots musty hay funk with a little more bitterness than what I remember from the bottled version.

Hay, apricots and some grassy bitterness on the finish. Again, slightly more bitter than the bottle. Tastes fresher overall. Apricot and peach sourness throughout. A great and balanced blend of funk and acidity.

The body has some good weight to it with lively carbonation and a delicious level of sourness. Feels somewhat slick. Quite good for a fruit lambic.

Drinkability is great like usual. Nice sourness with a good helping of fruit and funk. This on-tap version seemed to have some extra grassy bitterness to it, which I liked quite a bit. It helped to bring out some of the earthier and more floral aspects of the beer. Anyways, I hope I get to see this beer on-tap again some day. Excellent stuff.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. Served side by side with St.-Gilloise. Review from notes.

A: Fou' Foune is a hazy yellow color. There is 1/4 inch head that fades pretty rapidly, leaving no lace.

S: The aroma is incredible, with scents of a farm, barnyard, apricots, straw.

T: The beer tastes phenomenal. It's extremely tart. Extremely tart, I said. The flavor is bold and aggressive, with apricots and sour funk causing my cheeks to pucker in delight.

M: Upon completion of my second glass, I was really feeling the finish. I felt akin to a boxer that got hit with a lot of body shots over the course of a bout. The acetic finish grows stronger with every ounce. I...can't...stop...

D: It's truly sad that this beer will no longer be brewed.

***

A: Hazy yellow, small head and no lace.

S: Straw, hay, the great outdoors, farms, apricots. Ah, Cantillon has the most incredible aromas...

T: Extremely sour, even for Cantillon. My mouth puckers in delight. A beautiful and natural taste of apricots and barnyard funk.

M: Very tart with an acetic finish.

D: Delicious beer. Great for sharing a few ways.

Served in a tumbler at ChurchKey.

As I admitted to my bartender when I ordered it, I have no idea how to truly properly pronounce this beer's name, let alone attempt to define it. I was just excited to see such a touted lambic on draught in my neck o' the woods. It pours a hazy orange straw with a tall head of deeply longevitous (yeah, I said it...now, if only more people would use it...) white froth. As it died away, lingering on as the worst people tend to, it left some nebulous lacing behind. The smell wafting to me is of banana, peach, funk, flowers (pretty ones, I do believe), and a surprisingly healthy amount of vanilla. It's like brewer's potpourri. The taste doesn't bring this high esteem down any, either. Tart berries; sour peach, apple, and grape; a tiny bit of bitterness; and a slight hint of oak (or some kind o' wood, anyway) round out the puckering flavor profile. So this is a true Belgian lambic, eh? I'm impressed. The body is on the lightest end of the medium sub-spectrum, with a sharp, moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. I may not be able to guzzle this tart monster, but I sure as hell want to. Get some!

Draft at Tria on 6/6/10.

Pours hazy golden with hints of orange. Huge lingering fluffy white head.

Aroma is of deep barnyard funk, then some peach and apricot as it warms, along with a little mango. Only slight hints of citrus.

Flavor is nice sweetness and a delightful puckering sourness. As it warms, you pick up much more of the rich apricot flavor.

Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and buttery, with great light carbonation. This is a sickeningly sessionable lambic that goes down way too easily.
