Score
8.31
ABV: 5.5% IBU: - Ticks: 130
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.

0.75 l bottle from 'Rudat', 6% abv, bottled in September 2017, cellared for over two-and-a-half years. Clear, golden with a medium large, foamy, almost stable white head. Sourish, quite funky and gently fruity aroma of ripe lemon, white pepper, horse blanket, some oak and a touch of apricot when it warms up. Quite sour, rather funky, gently fruity taste of ripe lemon, rhubarb, horse blanket and oak, followed by a medium long, rather tart, very woody-dry and quite funky finish. Thin to medium body, quite astringent and gently effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Intense but also nicely balanced Lambic. Don't really get the apricot, does it fade so quickly?! Tastes like a classic Oude Gueze now.

Just felt like having a nice loon today. Picked a fou randomly from my stash, couldn't find a date on the label so I thought "whatever". Only when I saw the cork I thought fuck.. should've saved this for a tasting... too bad. Full on sweet apricot in the aroma. Wonderful. In the flavor however the apricot is basically completely gone and it's got a kind of vicious sourness to it. More than I'd like but can't complain, still a beauty. Second glass by the way, as I'm more used to the acidity, there is also more fruit detectable in the flavor.

Bottled 10 august 2018, 6% abv. Bottle at home. Near clear golden with some white head. Sour grains, dried grass, apricot, gooseberries, seabuckthorn, general stonefruit fruitiness and acidity, light aluminium metallic note, cobwebby cellar funk. About medium to over medium sour, with some fruity sweetness in the middle of it. Dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Bit sandy grainy mineral mouthfeel. Last pour was actually the best, denser aromas and fuller mouthfeel. Maybe next time shake the bottle before opening 😅
