Lemon yellow color. Huge head on the pour. Descent retention. Visible large bubbles.

Hoppy, citric aroma with pleasant funk.

Big lemon flavor with moderate citric acid flavor. Mellow, pleasing funk is well balanced. Citrus, herbal hop fits well.

Moderate body. Crisp finish. Well carbonated.

Very good lambic.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar, San Francisco, CA

A: The beer is crystal clear amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that has very good retention properties.
S: Moderate aromas of funk are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is a little funky and has some fruity flavors—apples seem to stand out in particular.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable for an unblended lambic and isn't too funky.

Note: Bottle #445

Serving type: bottle

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #1 Bottle #687.

Slightly cloudy, but with an interesting opaque mix of faint tangerine orange, and washed out apricot yellow colors. One finger but small head that is frothy, but has big staying power. The body is just loaded with some of the most fascinating carbonation I've seen. Pinhead white and fine bubbles and lots of them… just everywhere, and they creep up in a bowed way, like racing through and interstellar galaxy or something. Really neat looking brew, fascinating actually.

Wonderful solid but also controlled and simple aroma. Large fruit tones of apricot and nectarine, peach sour fuzz throws in the mix as well. It's very hard to get this fruit note pinpointed, bottle mentions "exotic fruit" and boy is that a bang on description if there ever was. I'll say lilikoi but not as tart. Good sense of oak aging coming off of this, it seems nice and hinting thick fruit and malt and just a faint hair of soft cedar like wood. Very impressive.

Hot dam I am in love on this first sip. Mouthfeel is just absolutely perfect in every way. A rich creamy texture with a mild sweetness gives some vanilla tones, but also nice soft carbonation, champagne like feel but not with any of the scorching dryness. Malt sweetness comes out like mild honey and the fruit just comes excellently. Huge juiced peach qualities, and big soft yeasty and bread notes. Mild citrus as well with tangerine orange coming nicely. Drizzled peach with clotted cream like mid palate, huge juicy tones, but virtually no acidic like qualities you would have on most lambics.

It's the hidden magic Fou Foune as far as I am concerned, but a real unique animal with giant fruit quality, mix of sweet and muted tangy sour quality, and. Aging could be argued made a difference, but man I don't have the patience for this kind of thing, just stick it in my veins.
