I really enjoyed the Fou Foune, but I also am a big fan of apricots on general. Speaking of which, the Cascade Apricot was very nice.

Seriously all those look great. And the ones I've had are. Not much help beyond that. All I know is last time I was in Portland I spent a little over $200 at Belmont Station. : /

I agree with tankdeer about the Fou Foune, amazing beer. I also love apricots (note to self make apricot lambic). The Drie Fonteinen Doesjel is still so just be aware some people do not enjoy still beer, but it is very nice.

Again, I don't think you can go wrong with many of those.

For me personally in that list it's the Rose de Gambrinus

I just love the initial sweetness that fades to a big hit of funky and super sourness

THe Fou Foune is pretty good though.

I haven't really tried many from the non-Cantillon part of that list.

I've got a couple of the Hanssens in the fridge ready to try though

No help for you, but if sours is your thing, check out Night of the Funk in Boston in Oct. Tickets are $52, but judging by last years list of beers it's going to be amazing:

I'll echo the Fou Foune and the Doesjel. I haven't seen the Oudbeitje in years - that might be a good one. You may need the Lotto to pay for the Lamvinus!
