4.72/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours out a bright apricot orange looking pour with a thin white head, that for a lambic, actually stuck around for a little while.

Smell is right on, massively tart and sour with plenty of apricot all over it. Stays away from funk/horse blanket/sweaty socks and just drills you with fruit and sour that is so clean. Taste remains like the nose, awesome, clean, and powerful. How something so sour can retain so much of a fruit presence at the same time, well, that's why it got a 5.

Its just simply phenomenal stuff, never does the sour and fruit dissipate or become 'normalized' with your taste buds. Top notch.

On tap at beachwood bbq.

Pours a lighter gold with lots of bubbles and a small wispy head.

Smells like ripe peaches with some barnyard funk going on as well.

Very light and crisp taste. Lots of smooth peach flavors balanced nicely by the yeast. Finishes with a slight tartness. Fantastic.

Light bodied with higher carbonation levels.

Been wanting to get one of these for a while and was not disappointed. One of the better ones I've had.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a flute. I had this at the bottle funk even at Teresa's Next Door.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy golden straw color with a layer of white head that leaves a ring around the glass.

Smell: Sour apricot and peach. Very fruity and refreshing. One of the best smelling beers I have ever run into.

Taste: Unbelievably, it lives up to the smell. Not quite as fruity, but I could still pick up some peach and apricot notes. Tart and lemony with a slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: Just amazing. So refreshing, I was really bummed I couldn't just buy a whole glass. Loved the fruit and the level of sourness. I will definitely try to find this again one day.

Poured from the bottle at the Bottle Funk event at TND.

cloudy golden color with almost no head from the pour. Lacing on the walls of the glass appear to have sediment reminiscent of fruit pulp. smell is almost entirely of apricot with very little funk to remark on. Taste also has a ton of apricot, along with some sourness. Taste also has a bit of a woody taste as well. It's fantastic as the apricot is so obvious. One thing to love about cantillon's fruit lambics, the essence of the fruit is not lost with all the wild critters fermenting it and this one is no exception. This may be my favorite Cantillon.

A friend brought this over to our place as part of an epic tasting on Saturday. Thanks Jason! Following review based on notes taken at that time.

4oz. sample poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Hazy, straw yellow body with a loose, fizzy, white crown. Nice retention.

Smell: Squashed, overripe, apricots. Nothing else. This is the most pure apricot smell I've encountered since my childhood, when we'd have cardboard boxes of apricots sitting on our back porch in Fresno. Transcendental!

Taste: Apricots and lemon juice are the only two flavors that really come to mind. Sweetness appears at the onset of each sip, but heavy-handed tartness and acidity quickly take over afterward. If you're a sour lover, this one's for you!

Mouthfeel: Very tart and acidic, so much so that it's tough to pick apart the rest of this beer's attributes. Moderate-to-high carbonation, I think, with a light body.

Overall: Epic. Certainly one of the best sours/lambics I've ever had, and one of the best smelling beers I've ever encountered as well. This beer deserves it's reputation. Track it down!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy yellow to orange-ish color with a big white head. In the aroma, tart and fruity. In the taste, a dry tartness, and note of peaches, very similar to a dry white wine or riesling. A small sour bite and lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry tart fruit in the aftertaste. Nice sour fruitiness, especially peaches, with a nice dryness.

Had on draft at Beachwood BBQ

A: This one pours a pale straw (ever so slightly hazy) color, and is topped with a thin bone white head. Head is not much to speak of nor is the lacing.

S: Stone fruit (Apricot for sure), Meyer lemon, and a subtle grassy note.

T: Very acidic up front mellowing into in the middle with the most incredibly tight carbonation I have experienced to date. Tart apricot and white peach dominate, this is a joy to drink albeit not the most complex joy.

M: Soda Fizz. This has a very lengthy finish and again I have to note that the carbonation is most impressive. I figure it would easily be fantastic 10 years from now.

Had this on 8/8/11 at Monk's Mad Monday featuring Brasserie Cantillion. This was the 2008 Fou Foune. Served in 6-oz. portion in an 8-oz. wine-like glass. From my tasting notes:

Pours cloudy yellow with very little head after the pour. Smells of pure funk - barnyard aromas, musty, yet inviting. A little bit of old moldy-like wood. Acetic vinegar aromas permeate throughout. Tastes sour but not overly puckering. Hints of apricot. Tastes vinegar-like and inviting: great tasting. If this is a prime lambic example, I'm hooked!!!

750 ml bottle enjoyed with dinner at the Hopleaf in Chicago. Kicking myself for forgetting to check bottle date, but according to the bar they haven't got any of this in a while so the bottle was a couple years old.

A: Beautiful cloudy, hazy golden hue. Not much head. Slight lacing.

S: I expected a more pronounced apricot smell. It was faintly present. But perhaps that's the beauty of this beer. The apricot was very nuanced. Typical awesome Cantillon funk smell present. Lemon rind, too.

T: I can understand some of the reviews complaining of too much of a lemony flavor. It is slightly lemony, but it wasn't off-putting to me. When tasting you could pick up more of the apricot. Funk and sour are definitely present. This beer has loads of that. Very appealing if you are into that sort of thing.

M: Crisp and refreshing. Bubbly and champagne-like. Paired wonderfully with the prawns I had.

O: Not much to say here that hasn't been said. This is obviously an excellent beer. Cantillon does amazing things and continues to impress me with every beer of theirs that I am fortunate enough to consume. I was very happy I had the opportunity to try this, and I would obviously drink it again.

2010 bottle purchased and split at Lord Hobo - a pretty delightful surprise. Served in a tulip.

It really does look a lot like carbonated orange juice. The body is a pale yellow-orange, lighter around the edges of the glass. Fairly murky. A very small white head fades pretty quickly, but leaves nice lacing around the glass.

The smell is pretty close to flawless. There is more fruit in the nose of this beer than any other Cantillon I've tried. My first impression is of barnyard funk and tart sourness, but underneath there is a huge apricot presence. Freshly picked fruit, sweet and bright, only becomes more prominent as this warms.

There's also a tremendous amount of apricot in the finish. There are a lot of vinous, tart, lactic funk notes in the taste, with a lingering sourness that almost burns the back of my throat. But, like the smell, the support base of all that funk is a wealth of apricots. The fruit is so vibrant, like no other sour beer I've ever had. Simultaneously refreshing and multilayered.

The mouthfeel is spot-on, with a perfect level of champagne-like carbonation. I could have easily taken down a bottle myself.

Though I'm curious to try an older vintage, I couldn't imagine enjoying this beer without the fruitiness. A phenomenal expression of natural sweetness and a superb lambic.

On tap at Beachwood Sourfest 2011

5.5 oz pour into a taster flute (had 3 of these)

Pours a nice murky yellow with fuzzy white fluff coating the edges of the glass and topping the body.

Why don't more beers use truck loads of apricots in them? The smell is outstanding. Extremely fresh apricots laced with lemon rind and sprinkled with a delicate peppery spice. So simple, but done to perfection.

Taste follows with the same idea. Very well balanced between the juicy apricot and acidic lemons.

Mouthfeel is nice a creamy. I wish it were a little more acidic, but can't knock it too much since I enjoyed it quite a bit and it makes it hard not to overlook any flaw.

Very glad I got to try this. My only problem is that my girlfriend absolutely loved it so now I have to find a bottle or two for a special occasion. Oh well, can't complain.

On-tap at Beachwood I, 2010 Vintage,

A: Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head, nice spotty lace.

S: Apricot and lemon, with a lot of acid, true fruit smell.

T: The apricot is there, the fruit is true and lends complexity. The lactic acid is prevalent, but melds seemlessly with the apricot to make a stone fruit/lemon mix that is delicious.

M: Medium to high acidity, crisp and clean. Soft easy carbonation, beautifully structured.

O: Another fantastic lambic from Cantillon. Not a traditional fruit, but it certainly works. I have been wanting to try this for some time and it did not disappoint. Great beer.

so this was a ten-year vertical arranged by mrbubbler, that beautiful, beautiful son of a bitch

2000-2010 (minus 2003, which was coincidentally the first bottle of foufoune i had back in the day)

tasted all of them blind, and i was able to correctly guess the vintage of four out of the ten

here's the play-by-play, with ratings out of 5 for each:

2000 - funkier than many, quite thin with patchy clouds - 4/5

2001 - muted compared to some, little thin but still nice and tart, good oak - 4.5/5

2002 - really vinegary acidity, dark cloudy with tart fruit, this was the whale-status year as far as rarity and ended up being many people's favorite - 4.5/5

2004 - creamy and fruity with a big full mouthfeel, clean, streamlined flavors throughout, best in show - 5/5

2005 - soda-y, less cloudy, with an acidic pop in the middle - 4/5

2006 - cleaner than many, tart and fruity, thrilling and just a hair behind the 04 as my favorite - 5/5

2007 - fruit pit/flesh pronounced, acid but then mellow finish - 4/5

2008 - kinda schizo-fruit flavors, acidic middle, good and unique in the crowd - 4.5/5

2009 - very acidic, tongue stripping, less assertive on the fruit and funk end - 4/5

2010 - this one was full-on peach sugary fruit with no acidity, funk, or oak, although that said it was fun to have a peach syrup palate cleanser in-between the ridiculosity of the other nine, this one i didn't feel right giving a numerical score

the cuvee of all these was a fuzzy, funky reflux-inducing treat, the dreg blend was like butter... so thankful for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, cheers to all the contributors

Multiple pours from 2010 750ml bottles into a tasting glass at Ebenezer's Night of the Great Thirst.

A: Cloudy pale apricot-colored body (appropriately enough) under a persistent, fine white head. Nice.

S: Holy apricot! Richly juicy fruit, with great balance between sweetness and tartness. Citric acid backs things up with a lemony sting. Fan-freaking-tastic.

T: Sour apricot up front, followed by even sourer lemony acidity. The apricot persists all the way through, granting a delicate sweetness to the long finish. Lovely, but just not quite as astonishingly perfect as the aroma.

M: Frothy, soft, and delicate. Quite nice.

O: I've been wanting to try this one for a long time now, and it certainly did not disappoint. I love how vibrant the apricots were in this fresh bottle, and I can't really imagine wanting them to dissipate over time. Aged Cantillons are great and all, but none of them can possible smell like this. Do yourself a favor and try fresh Fou'Foune if you ever get a chance.

Cheers!

From a bottle at Ebenezer's, not sure of the vintage.

Hazy peach-skin orange with a 1-finger or so white head that retains well. Amazing smell, pure fresh apricot pulp with some funk there as well. Taste has nice apricot/peach, not over the top but definitely not subdued at all. Funk and oak are there but kinda take a backseat, some lemon, bread/yeast and white wine notes there too. Smooth mouthfeel, not crazy sour, one of the more drinkable and fruit-forward Cantillon's I've had so far.

I got a pretty small pour of this and it was gone pretty quickly. Glad to have tried this, I'd like to be able to sit down with a bottle sometime.

2010 Fou Foune - thanks Dunt!

Pours a cloudy peach hue with a finger of delicate white foam, and a hint of lacing.

Smells funky and sour with a bit of sweet apricot underneath.

Taste is delicous. Very sour with a hint of apricot and some oak and funk.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium/light body with delicate creamy carbonation.

Overall - an excellent, excellent beer. I hope I can land a bottle or two in the future.

Brasserie V's Pre Party for Great Taste of the Midwest Poured on tap into a snifter.

A- Pours a murky yellow straw color that is hard to see through, one finger white head that dissipates to a nice white layer on top, minimal lacing on the side.
S- The aroma is fantastic, this might be one of the best smelling beers I’ve ever had. Fresh Fresh Apricot upfront, slight peach aroma, nice funk and oak in the background.
T- The taste is sour apricot right away, slight lemon and peach flavors in the background, really sour, mouth puckering, some peppery spice notes, tart, slight oak flavor, this one is truly delicious.
M- Medium mouth feel, well carbonated, coats the palate with an amazing sour apricot flavor, dry on the finish.
O- This was truly a privilege to drink. The best sour I’ve had to this day, pretty drinkable for how sour it was, I could not put it down, savored the last drop for as long as I could. I need to hunt down a bottle of this gem.

Had the 09 vintage a couple of days ago from the bottle and I was blown away. This beer is even better than I remembered it to be. The apricot is phenomonal.

2010 vintage
Look: the beer pours a yellow-straw color with a small white head
Smell: Very sour, with apricot, peach, lemon and some oak
Taste: As expected from the nose, this beer is very sour. Vinegar with pure lemon juice and apricots. Very fruity. Dry and stinging acid in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body with medium carbonation
Overall: I love sours and had many of them, but this one is like a geuze with pure lemon juice added, making it a bit unbalanced IMO. Just expected more of this one, although would never turn one down

'07 vintage poured into a 6oz wine glass at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia.

Big bright and gorgeous fluorescent yellow beer sits in my glass with light fizzies floating on the top and no head. Aroma more subtle than I expected. Slight citrus notes and not as acidic as I imagined, more of a funky floral musk which tempered my expectations.

Initial sips were a tasty, sour, gueuze-like lambic that left me somewhat underwhelmed. As the glass warmed, the flavors began to pull through fast and furiously. Bracingly sour and acidic, pronounced barnyard funkiness and a shockingly big finish of apricot goodness that totally floored me for an '07 vintage.

Mouthfeel was extremely prickly from the carbonation and puckering from the extreme acidity. Dry finish.

Truly a world class beer that deserves it's standing among the elite lambics. Not worth mortgaging your house over, but undoubtedly something to seek out and try if you should ever get the opportunity.

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.

I was fortunate enough to have the 2007 and 2008 poured side by side at monk's Cantillon event today. For me, the 08 was the highlight of the day, the 07 was extraordinary as well, but not as mind blowing as the 08.

The beer was foaming up a bit, but this sour initially had a surprisingly creamy tight head. The 08 was a bit cloudy, while the 07 was very clear. Both approximately apricot (duh) colored. The aroma was amazing for the 08, and very good for the 07 as well. The 08 was more aromatic and fruity. You can reallly tell this is a big apricot beer. The 07 was more sour and less fruity. The highlight of the aroma was the funk rather than the fruit.

The 08 tasted like a tart refreshing amazing apricot funky glass of heaven. The sourness was a bit more pronounced than the aroma suggested. 07 was big sour funk and the fruit was a bit more subdued. Both had a mild tannic oaky thing happening which was really nice.

It was a nice light and tangy beer, maybe a bit under carbonated, but that very well could have been because some of the taps were pouring foamy and to best serve everyone, they poured it into a pitcher and then poured the glasses.

Overall this was an outstanding beer that I was fortunate enough to be able to try. While I have been venturing into sour beer, the 08 version of this beer is the best I have ever had and confirmed my love for wild yeast. Outstanding.

Poured from a caged and corked 750 mL bottle into a tasting glass. Special thanks to whoever brought this 2006 bottle to Alewatcher's birthday. From notes.

Appearance: This has a very elegant hazy golden yellow appearance in the glass. With its translucence it appears almost angelic, although I might just be thinking that because I am so excited to try it. A ring of white head rests in the edge of the glass, remaining mellow and not bothering to leave much lace.

Smell: This aroma is fantastic, just the perfect balance for a summer beer. A little bit sour, with just a hint of funk, there is a ton of apricot that screams refreshment.

Taste: The flavor is really a progression of apricot. Up front it starts sweet, like biting into a ripe apricot. It shifts to become more sour, gaining momentum from an acidity that starts in the periphery and eventually makes me pucker. On subsequent sips this sensation subsides and I distinguish some lactic sourness and a light mustiness at the end.

Mouthfeel: The body to Fou' Foune is light to medium, with a good amount of carbonation that is mostly creamy but provides a bit of crispy pep as well. Overall in line with what I want from a beer of this nature. Very dry at this point.

Overall: It is a cruel joke that this beer is so hard to come by in the United States. I am beginning to wonder if I should move to Belgium just to be able to drink Cantillon all the time. Seriously.

Huge thanks to Deuane for busting this one out. I have been looking to try another one of these for a little while now. 2009 bottle.

A - Pours murky light orange with a big two finger tall white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of lots of sourness, sharp apricot and even some peach, light funk, and some dry oak tannins. I would have preferred just a bit more fruit but it isn't a huge deal really.

T - Starts off with a big dose of tart sourness slowly giving way to a mix of ripe apricot, damp must, and some dry oak tannins. The sourness is strong but once it dies down a bit you can detect the great fruit core of this beer. The finish is a mix of sourness and light dryness, lingering for some time.

M - Medium-Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. It is very tart and dry in the feel lingering long after the finish. While the sourness is strong it straddles the line of being overpowering very well.

O - Easily one of the best sours out there. The sourness is strong but if you can get by it you are in for a treat. The fruit is a perfect complement to all that funky goodness. I can't wait to have this on-tap in a few days.

A 2009 vintage bottle shared with friends.

A-Hazy, turbid, orange highlighted milky copper with a medium bright white head that slowly faded to a wisp of retention.

S-Mildly sharp apricot aroma with accents of oak and a light touch of mustiness. Certainly a pleasant aroma but nothing crazy.

T-Well, where the aroma is a bit reserved the apricot sourness hits you hard on the palate! Massive, sharp fruit punch in the face. But, much like the way wasabi heat it powerful but quick and fleeting, the tartness here is similar with a huge way that disperses quickly, not that this is a bad thing. Accenting notes of oak dryness, damp basement mustiness and a touch of lemon zest zing.

M-Medium-light bodied with an impressively zippy mouthfeel. Tartness is present initially with long lingering, astringent apricot skin fruit notes.

D-Without question one of the finest fruit sours I have had the opportunity to enjoy. I honestly can find nothing "wrong" with this beer. If this could be my summertime lawn mower beer it would! A refreshingly tasty, tart, flavourful and satisfying brew!

750mL 2010 split two ways.

A - clear golden with a finger of white head, a few spots on the glass.

S - fresh apricots, lemon, a touch of oak with even less funk apparent in the nose.

T - Delicious ripe apricots, peaches, tart green apples, lemon rind, and a lingering funk. Very bright but well balanced.

M - light body and carbonation glides over the tongue and finishes crisp and dry.

The first time I had this beer it was 6 years old and it was a sour bomb. The fruit was barely kicking, but it was still enjoyable. I would have to say I prefer the fresh bottles for the great balance of sweet and sour. My favorite fruit lambic to date.
