Adding Aug 2011 bottle sampled 5/27/12. The fruit is so much fresher and really pops. I can actually taste the apricot where as the aged bottle was much more sour and less fruit forward. I recommend drinking this fresh as possible.

Bottled August 2010. Courtesy of a generous Texas trader, can't recall exactly, poor job by me.

Pours a hazy dark golden color, almost orange, with a nice fluffy white head. A bit of spotty lacing and a minimal head that stays throughout.

Aromas begin with a lot of lactic acidity, lemon, peaches and tart green apple. The oakiness emerges as it warms with a really nice wet hay and barnyard funk.

The tastes directly follow the nose with loads of apricot/peach mixed with some very nice lactic sourness. The funk, earth, and wood emerge more and more as it warms. The lactic sourness and fruity apricot and pretty equal here; I credit that due to the age as I have been told this is much more apricot forward when fresh.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Finish is dry and acidic but not overly so; pleasantly sour and tart in the finish but by no means the sourest or Brett forward beer I have ever had. Really in balance overall which is how I like pretty much all my beers regardless of style.

Overall this is world class, no bones about it. Flavor profile is exactly how you would want a fruited lambic to be, balance of fruit and funk is second to none. I don't think I would drink anything but Cantillon from June-August if I could readily track it down, but alas that will never happen. I prefer St. Lamvinus to this slightly but that is a personal preference, both are the two best Belgian lambics for my money.

2010 bottle, shared with my beautiful and wonderful girlfriend. I have had older bottles of this, but never one nearly so fresh as this. The brew pours a turbid orange hue and is capped with a nice, albeit short-lived, white cap of froth. Wow. It smells so strongly tart, fruity and funky. It tastes like a tart Gueuze macerated in copious amounts of the juicy and tart flesh of apricot and peach - first and foremost - but it also suggests hefty doses of nectarine, Alphonso mango, Mandarin orange supremes, papaya, and loquat. Very very tart. One of the most puckering beers I've had, sip after sip. Many standard nuances of a Cantillon brew (ex.: grassy, woody-tannic and/or bright lemon-y) are obfuscated by the brutal funkiness of this heavily fruit-laden Lambic. Strong acidity here, from the sharply tart malic-tartaric-citric acid notes (akin to sour candy), to the heavy malt vinegar nuance, and finally rounded out by the pungent overipe-rotten orchard fruit notes and a musky hay-straw-barn funk. Overall, this beer is a stunner. Relatively fresh, like this bottle is, the brew is as intensely fruity as any you're likely to encounter. Give it 5 years or so, such as the bottle urwithdave shared with me recently, and the brew is equally stunning, but radically different. The fruit is a ghostly nuance after 5 years, and all of the elements are expressed in a divinely sublime manner, as opposed to the shocking intensity of the fresh brew.

Part of our Kebab and Cantillon dinner the other weekend. Cheers fellas!

From a 750 into a tumbler
Bottled 28 August 2012
Best Before 2017

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking white head with decent retention. Hazy amber orange in color with lower levels of carbonation evident. Head fades to a thick ring but leaves no real lacing down the glass.

SMELL: A bolder nose on this one with some lemon and citrus esters, funky and musty notes, as well as an obviously big apricot presence. A good dose of the added fruit, but not too much to dominate the lambic. Quite nice.

TASTE: Follows the nose well, with a heavy dose of apricot, though not enough to crush the lambic. Some puckering lemon and funky, mouldy flavors though the middle, then more sourness and floral bitter notes at the swallow. Tart lemon, funky notes and enough bitterness to balance the sweet apricot in the bold and lingering aftertaste. Quite enjoyable and well put together.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes rather dry. Puckering and somewhat acidic after the swallow.

OVERALL: Really enjoyed this, and it definitely won the Cantillon fruit lambic showdown at the Kebab and Cantillon dinner party. The fruit was really nice and in enough force to put on a show, but not so much that it dominated the nose or flavor profile. Delicious and quite complex, this one is actually worth all the praise it gets. Glad to finally have tried this while paying attention. Cheers guys!

Bottled in '07

Pours a hazy cedar with shades of peach. Thick white head has excellent lacing and settles to a thin cover.

Nose has tart citrus, apricots, manure, oak, horse blanket and earthy soil. The apricot presence really grows as this warms and pairs beautifully with the many other complex aromas.

Taste is quite sour and acidic up front followed by sweet malts, oak, barnyard funk, sharp citrus fruits and apricots.

Crisp body is delicately carbonated with a nice dry finish. Another amazing lambic from Cantillon.

Just love the way this beer looks pours a stale looking apricot orange dull and dirty unfiltered with an astringent white head loose and of its own kind. Carbonation bubbles cling to sides of my tulip in various spots.

Christ what a great smelling beer. Sour and funky with oaky undertones tart fruits slight bit of citrus and obviously that aroma of apricot.

Deliciously mouth puckering. Great sour middle and finish so fruity and delicious. Apricot really takes the lead with oak later on. Good acidity levels and perfect carbonation. Not nearly as thin as majority of sours out there and it really helps that out. But hell it is cantillon. Little heart burn kicking in from the acidity and funky undertones. Could drink this for hours on end.

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

Appearance: muddy light golden brown, with a small white head, thick, broken lace, and a modest scattering of foam on the surface.

Aroma: Tart aroma of vinegar, sharp cheese, sour hay, and earth. While this sounds unappealing, it is not, somehow.

Taste: Profoundly sour, puckering, and astonishingly dry. Somewhat like lemon juice, and white wine vinegar, with earthy notes thrown in. Nonetheless, the reaction to this cornucopia of typically unappealing flavors is to take another sip. The finish is very, very tart, with a ghostly herbal hop presence. The apricot notes are present, but quite subtle.

Mouth feel: Smooth, very soft, pleasant, almost unexpectedly so,

Drinkability/notes: Like blue cheese, most definately an acquired taste, but once acquired, there is a profound attraction. A beer and a style that must not be missed. A friend commented that is very much like a Brut Champagne. Discarding one's preconcieved notions of beer is the best way to experience a lambic for the first time.

2008 vintage 750ml bottle into Stone Levitation tulip.

A - Pours a light golden color with a white head. Half a fingers worth of head leaves some lacing along with a nice cap on top of the beer.

S - Super tart/sour, funk, barynard notes, apricots, sweet fruit such as mangos and pears. A nice meld of funk and sweetness. Lots of the funk up front and a nice subtle sweetness on the finish.

T - Much like the nose, only more sweet fruit notes by comparison. Sour/tart, funky barnyard, horse blanket, apricots, pears.

M - Light and fizzy. Champagne-esk carbonation. Refreshing and gentle on the palate.

D - Not my favorite from Cantillon, but I do like this to change it up every now and then. Looking forward to trying the 2009 release here soon.

750ml bottle of 2010 into a New Belgium goblet. Thanks to xpimptasticx for the share!

Pours a very bright, golden blonde body with a tiny-bubbled tuft of white head. Good carbonation. Absolutely fantastic aroma: delicate apricot floods the nose, as if I were biting into the fruit itself. Hints of peach rind, wheat, and lemongrass in the background. Incredibly fragrant.

Flavor is delicious--tart and fruity with hints of peach sourness hitting the sides of the tongue. Very bright and fresh, and the tartness doesn't overpower the palate. The apricot gets a bit lost after a few sips, but that's to be expected. Excellently carbonated, the light body glazes the palate with ease. Just a well-crafted beer...Fou Foune is a Cantillon sour at it's finest.

2009 750mL bottle. Thanks Arne.

~~~

Re-reviewed; my initial score was too low.

A: Pours a hazy straw body with short-lived off-white head. It leaves sticky suds everywhere as the cap vanishes.

S: Tart apricot (took me a while to figure this out, as I thought it was peaches but wasn't quite sure). Some sourness. It's mildly funky, with horse blanket and leather aromas.

T: Very vibrant apricot flavor. Lemon peel, grass, a hint of something musty. It's not particularly sour; it's tart, but the sourness is, well, balanced. Tannins (wood, apricot skins) in the finish. A dry, but not austere, finish.

M: Light-bodied, with sharp carbonation.

D: This beer grows on me more each time I have it.

750 mL bottle, 2008 vintage, split with friends at Maxs.

Appearance is a cloudy, hazy pale straw gold with a thin fizzy white head that leaves minimal lacing. I'll be smelling this beer all night, long after I leave here. Extremely sharp, acidic and funky with mild apricot fruit sweetness and cheesy funk. It's hard to stop smelling this and actually taste it. Flavor starts initially apricot and oak sweet before becoming overwhelmed by acidic and vinegary sweetness which actually finds a way to become even sharper and more nasty funky in the finish. Not for the faint of heart or novice to the style, and maybe not the best bottle to represent this particular beer, but for a complex fruity and sour lambic this is near impeccable.

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.

Cork notes a 2004 vintage.

Aroma: Another kick in the head from a true Lambic. Musty, old, hints of over ripe peach, bile, vinegar, farm, and various animals.

Appearance: Hazy apricot glass shows no head and thus, no lace. Looks like peach nectar.

Flavor: Intense! Once you get past the lemon juice, it’s like you’re running around a farmyard putting your tongue on various things, some of which don’t appreciate it. While my other Lambic experiences have lemon juice intensity, I really got the lemon/citric feeling out of this one.

Mouthfeel: Mouth curdling tart, bone dry.

Overall Impression: Good! Same pucker vinegar nut check “Am I man enough?” intensity. I’m glad to report that, yes, yes I am, but wow these Lambics have me up in the middle of the night running for antacids. It’s like they try to crawl back out, but no problems getting them down.
Thanks once again to Stonecrusher for the continued education.

750ml, August 2012
Riedel Tulip

A: Really brilliant orange color. Looks almost like light orange juice in the glass. Thin layer of bright white head. Not leaving lacing. Not a huge pop on cork, but there is still carbonation.

S: Really sweet apricot still. It's just amazing at how nature that smells. Then you get the typical Cantillon musty notes. It's something completely unique to them. Muted tart and funky sour.

T: Epic mesh of Cantillon funk and apricot sweetness. Even after nearly a full year since bottling, you still get pronounced Apricot in the flavor. It's not overly sour, as with a queuze because of this sweetness and it hasn't been completely eaten up by the bugs. Doesn't destroy the palate. Fairly dry finish, but there is still the delicious fruit.

M: Light to medium bodied. Dances on your palate.

I could/would drink this all day long...

A HUGE thank you to wordemupg for this long time want. August 25, 2011 bottling date.

Appearance. Pours a quite hazy straw-peach with a finger of frothy white head that fades to a skim pretty quickly, but leaves some lace behind.

Smell. Ripe apricots, juicy tangy peaches, sweet grapes and some nice and soft, sweet and fruity hayloft funk. I could smell this the second I pulled the cork from the bottle and also now from my glass several feet away.

Taste. Sour, slightly under-ripe apricots and peaches in a much more delicate way than the smell suggests. There's some good dry funk and a little bit of old wet wood. Very sour and tangy, and very nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body with fairly strong, fine carbonation.

Overall. Another fine beer from Cantillon. I can't say it's the best in their regular
lineup for me, but I am loving every drop of this and will look forward to having it again someday.

Cantillon 2011 Fou' Foune

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

A - Pours a delicious slight peach colored yellow with some nice haze. Slight straw gold liquid. There is a nice 0.25 inch white head that is quite lively and fizzy. It recedes fairly quickly. (4.5)

S - Aroma is delicious. Pure apricot juice comes up quick to the nose with some delicious juicy sweetness and some nice yeast funky. A bit of spice is present as well as a clean woody back. Slight tart notes. (4.5)

T & M - Very refreshing and delicious lambic. Starts off with some nice apricot sweetness, slightly sugary then followed with some nice tartness that comes up quick and balances the sweetness. There is some slight salty notes as well. Slight vinegar but just slight. There is some nice slight yeast funk mixed in with the woody notes that lay in the background behind the delicious balance of apricot and sour notes. Motufheel is light and crisp. Refreshing and delicious. (4.0)(4.5)

O - Awesome lambic. The apricot is delicious and blends well with the sour notes and also with the yeasty funk. Very nice (4.5)

Bottled August 25, 2008

Beer is a cloudy golden/orange colour. I am inclined to say apricot coloured given the flavouring of the beer and that would actually be pretty close. Small white head fades quickly.

Smell is clearly sour, with some chalk, yeast and funk. A strong, tart apricot scent is present. Minimal sweetness in the nose. The fruit smells very real, with none of the artificial qualities that I often find in the aroma of fruit flavoured beers, even when real fruit is used.

Taste is like the nose. Very sour apricot, some funk, a bit of a crisp spiciness from the wheat. Not a sweet beer at all, actually a very dry finish along with the heavy sour flavour.

As for mouth feel, pucker up! Dries the mouth out incredibly. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied, very smooth.

Overall, very enjoyable if you like your beer sour. Really nice flavour and aroma.

This was… dare I say, a milestone in my beer education—and I owe thanks to the good people at Jester King for making it possible.

I’m not even sure ‘hype’ is the right word to use when talking about cantillons, because they’re not lumped in with what I think of as other rarities, or those special bottle releases that people (myself included) are willing to line up for. Perhaps reverence? Respect? Certainly curiosity. I was aware that cantillons aren’t commonplace—I had never seen one before, let alone tried one—but when I got in line I had no idea that this was going to be the mystery keg they were tapping. Chalk that one up to being lucky, I guess, because once word spread the line grew exponentially. And I can totally understand why.

This poured a slightly cloudy orange yellow in color, with a great apricot aroma and noticeable tartness, even from the aroma. Simply amazing. There’s a big effervescence to this that lets the flavors dance across the tongue. The apricot floral-fruitiness is subdued, but its present and tasty. It’s tart, with a lingering, dry finish and a touch of sweetness like a firework going off. Half a pour wasn’t enough but its more than many had. Can’t wait to have another!

With full bottle pour, appearance is hazy brown with golden hues at the edges and generous white head. Nose is quite assertive with tingly candied apricots intermixed with light barnyard that thankfully stays in the background. Gorgeous sourness on the palate with the fruit in there at the same time, and it glides across the palate beautifully like a good Champagne. Loads of pleasing tartness on the finish. Incredibly drinkable.

2009 vintage. Poured from a 750ml capped and corked bottle into a Cantillon Iris glass.

A: Pours a 2.5 finger frothy white head that never really dissipates and gives me a creamy mustache every time I take a sip. Beer is a clear goldenrod with a slight shade of faded orange. Lacing is near non-existant with patches that cling here and there.

S: Nose is mindblowingly funky. Hints of barnyard, straw, tart apricot, cobwebs, must. Tickles the nose throughout.

T: Opens very tart, puckering lemon and citrus with overtones of Brett funk. Apricot sourness sneaks in at the middle and takes this one to another level. Funkiness intensifies tremendously at the back end and towards the finish as it dries the mouth. Moth balls, cobwebs, and bandaid right at the end just before a clean finish and a brief, fruity, apricot finish.

M: Light to medium bodied and highly carbonated. Lively and prickly in the mouth at the start, dry towards the middle, and oily and slick at the end. Finish is clean with a non-lingering aftertaste.

D: I've experienced one or two offerings in my time so far that have redefined what I thought beer could be and how incredible it could taste. There's no doubt in my mind that this is one of those offerings. It's a beer that I'm almost scared to finish for fear of not know when it'll grace my lips again. Worth all the accolades it receives. A once in a lifetime drink.

This bottle is dated "Bottled: August 18, 2011". It's the youngest I've ever seen a bottle. This beer pours a slightly cloudy dingy tangerine orange in color with a slight white head that turns into a lacing around the edges of the glass. The aromas are of fresh, lightly sweet, and tart, juicy, mouthwatering candied apricots witha slight acidic sour. It has to be one of the most impressive noses of any lambic. The flavor features tart and juicy fresh apricot, plenty of sharp citric acidity, light oaking, must, and light funk. It has great flavor and finishes light and dry, which makes it even more drinkable. Overall this is one of the finest lambics I've had to date. This is my third time trying it and I appreciated it most this time, at just over three months old. It was a treat!

My first Cantillon! Finally. Large format bottle from Tipples, capped and corked, with an Aug 30, 2013 bottling date. Cracked Feb 9, 2014. Pours into my tulip hazy apricot yellow with a very large fluffy and fizzy white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Aroma of apricots, lacto, yeast funk, dusty dryness. This smells both mouthpuckeringly dry and sour. Flavor is apricots up front and tart lemons, with another punch of sour in the middle. Finishes dry but soft with oak and apricots lingering with an extra lacto sour punch. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation. A yummy sour beer with lots to like. The fruit really comes out as this warms a bit so make sure not to drink it too cold. Keeps improving as I go here. very nice. Looking forward to trying my Kriek now.

Poured a pale golden orange in color with pale yellow highlights and a nice thin bubbly head that left some good frothy lacing sticking to the glass. Definitely had the signature cantillon bretty barnyard funk upfront on the nose with fresh peach apricot fruit notes, good citrusy notes with oak wood and nice acidcy for sure. The peachy apricot fruits came acroos more on the palate alongside great sour acidic notes with oaky wood accents which brought out more flavors, a touch of vanilla and plenty of brett barnyard horse blanket character to go around. The brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a fruity, semi sweet, bretty funky, woody, acidic sour and dry finish. I definitely dig this beer all around but I thought the 09 vintage was way better.

Bottle. 2008 vintage. Pours a slightly hazed orange amber color with a slight white head that collars around the glass. The aroma is awesome with definite ntoes of apricot along with some acidity and funkiness. Light mouthfeel with some good carbonation. The taste is really nice with a balance of fruit notes (apricot, grapefruit) and sour acidity. This one does leaves you puckering a bit but not overly so. Overall, a really good beer and one I am glad I got to try.
