The apricots are sourced from environmentally-friendly and sustainable agriculture. The proportion is 300 g of fruit blended with one litre of lambic, and the soaking time is very short. Specifically, it will only take around five weeks for the lambic to extract the fragrances and flavours of the fruit. It is worthwhile to note that Fou’Foune kicks off the bottling season around the end of August. Given its success, Fou’Foune has taken up third place among the fruit beers in terms of volume, behind the traditional kriek and Rosé de Gambrinus.

Bottled in 2016

A: Poured into a tulip glass to a light golden yellow beer which is topped by a dense and fluffy finger and a half of white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of apricots, hints of sourness, some chalky yeast and a touch of funk
T: Taste is building sourness up front with some nice apricot notes followed by some nice funk. Sourness is under control and not too aggressive with more apricots and more funk with some pale malty flavors coming through as well. On the finish there's some lemony tartness, more apricot, some lingering funk and a touch of chalky yeast.
M: This beer has a body which is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is lightly effervescent while the beer has a drying finish due to the acidity.
O: Overall this beer is outstanding. Great flavors and complexity. I probably should have drank this one sooner but it still tastes fantastic.

A HUGE thank you to tacosandbeer for this bottle!

A - Hazy medium orange gold colored pour with bright white, creamy lacing circling the top of the glass.

S - Massive tart, jammy, apricot with a little bit of funk going down.

T - Not as sour / tart as the nose would suggest (though still puckering). Lots of apricot jam tartness that lingers on the palate (and then some).

M - Big body with vibrant carbonation giving a soft texture leaving the entire mouth watering.

O - Straight up apricot with just the right amount of twangy zing. Pretty darn impressive and something special right here.

Poured from 750ml bottle into Spencers goblet.

L - Pale, hazy apricot gold pour with a topping of thin white foam, which disperses to a mild lacing.

S - Tart, sugary apricot jam with perhaps a touch of cinnamon and creamy vanilla.

T - Sharp sourness, almost vinegary acidity, underripe fruit, and a slight doughy grain flavor.

F - Stinging carbonation, juicy to start with a dry finish.

A beautifully crafted lambic which avoids the pitfalls of many other examples of the style (too sweet or too woody). The fruit is used to soften the lambic base. Excellent!

On tap at Windsor Homebrew in Anaheim, CA.

This one is like Van Gogh if he was medicated or something: the wildness is still there in its way, but now there is balance. It’s all pretty and fine, but it’s missing a bit of rage. And who doesn’t like that? Good, but Raul wouldn’t chop an ear off to get another pour.

As it warms, so does Raul…
