Had on tap. Finally got to try this lambic, was skeptical of the praise, but wow this was amazing! The apricot just explodes onto the palate on the finish with supporting flowers, hay, candi sugar, peach jam, pear, and funky yeast. So much fullness of flavor while maintaining a light, delicate and exception mouthfeel. Smell is not as vibrant, yet does put the spotlight on the apricot and peach yogurt (yeast) aromas. Pours bright gold with plenty of white foam, amazing lambic! Despite my doubts, the hype is real!

Pours and orangish-straw with a light haze and fog. Head foams up to two fingers in height straight from the bottle and retains fairly well. Aroma is peach with a light acidic straw backbone. Flavor profile is a jam-like peach notes, spread over notes of wheat and bread. Splendid smoothness. Mouth feel is smooth with a medium thickness. Overall, simply amazing. It's a kin to spreading a peach jam on bread.

Reviewed from notes. Served into a stemmed glass from a 750mL bottle.

Extremely well balanced lambic.
Appearance: Orange
Nose: Apricot, Peach
Mouth: Some sourness, but overall very drinkable
Overall: Extremely solid offering, but very expensive if you are buying in the USA.

This beer is as close to perfect as anything I've ever had. I will never stop thinking about it. I have nothing to add to any review, other than my input that this is tremendous.

2017 vintage (1 year old) purchased at Monk's Cafe. Poured at room temperature, essentially.

The look is semi-hazy light orange with a ring of white head.

The nose is apricot, pear, peach, and funk.

The taste is a balanced blend of similar flavors. Apricot, green apple, blue cheese, semi-dry finish. Near-perfect mouthfeel.

Overall, was this worth $60? Probably. Very good, though not necessarily mind-blowing. Just a balanced, refined, tasty beer. An experience, for sure.

First fresh foune (2017). Beautiful fruit lambic with standard cantillon mineral undertones, soft acidity and tartness, thick ripe appricot. Definitely get the “yoghurtiness” others have described. Would still be interested to stick a few years on it to see how the fruit charecter develops

For a special occasion, this is Cantillon's greatest offering. Justifies making the pilgrimage if a sour fan and even those who are more wine enthusiast will love Fou' Foune. Is a gold yellow with slight haze. Tastes of peaches, nuanced funk, balanced sourness, and a champagne effervescence. Enjoyed at the brewery in Brussels with family and new friends and really would not have it any other way.
