Fou' Foune (2014) - Brasserie Cantillon - Brussels, Belgium - Lambic - 5.00% ABV - This decadent lambic style sour poured a murky, golden-straw color, with a white head that dissipates immediately. The nose featured aromas of puréed apricots, funky Belgian yeast, and tart acidic notes that are quite pleasant to the nostrils. The mouth was outstanding; flavors of ripe apricots are prevalent up front, followed by hints of lemon peel, musty earth, white wine, and funky yeast that create a memorable taste. The mouthfeel was light bodied, with enamel eroding acidity and a bright, apricot finish. This was my first time having Fou', and wow, it was quite delightful. Thanks again for the bottle, @ehrenblanche! 98/100

Golden orange in color. Fairly cloudy in appearance. Balanced, sour and smooth. Not getting a ton apricot, finding myself not caring either. As it starts to warm, more fruit flavor is coming out.

Really nice and fancy and I can't wait to just have one of these but not to drink, to look at.
