The beer Cuvée des Jacobins is unblended old lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called ’Foeders’ in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.

This is my favorite beer. The fresh sour taste makes your mouth water for more with each sip. Lovely flavors of cherry, mouth-puckering sour with vinegar. Taaaaart. Just wonderful. The best sour beer I have ever had. Draft or bottle, you can’t go wrong. Go have one.

Wombata (413) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2014
Tap at Bottleworks, Seattle. Aroma: tart vinegar, cherry, straw Palate: Has a light-medium body. Starts with a sappy almost honey-like or light nectar-like body. Get a burst of carbonation on the mid-palate Flavor: vinegary cherry and straw, turns sappy and then a slow exploding intensity of the cherry flavor on a long tart finish. Comment: This is a fun, wild ride for the palate!

Een flets bier zonder smaak, een echte tegenvaller voor mij. Dit drink ik nooit meer

Man ska inte sparka på de som redan ligger ned. Därför måste jag av gentlemannamässiga skäl stå över den här recensionen.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 This beer is amazing. Took me completely by surprise. Very easy on the palate. Reminiscent of champagne. Love the vinegar tones in this beer. This is a must try.

Aromas of cherry, vanilla, caramel, cola. Hazy red with a mostly lasting khaki head. Tart rounded out nicely by vanilla notes. Light-medium bodied, acidic but smooth, fluffy carbonation.

Small glass from a beer festival. Nice, but the sour taste takes some getting used to.

Pours hazy amber with small white head on tap. Bitter aroma with hint of caramel. Smooth flavor with bitter finish. Well balanced beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
