A - pours a hazy straw to light orange. Somewhat aggressive, foamy head that dissipates relatively quickly.
S - even poured cold out of the fridge, this just explodes with aromas of sweet peach, apricot. Reminds me of Japanese peach candy. So much fruit aroma it is unbelievable. I could smell this beer for hours. As it warms, some of the typical Cantillon funk and wood notes come out.
T - You expect a much sweeter beer based on the nose but it's a mildly sour beer with a dry finish and very nice stone fruit presence.
M - dry, but with a nice sweet aftertaste, similar to eating a perfectly tart and sweet apricot. Pleasant carbonation.
O - come on. There is just no way this could ever have lived up to the expectations I had for it. That being said, this is one hell of a beer and probably the best I've had from Cantillon. The smell drives this beer and the flavor is outstanding.

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?
