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.

Crystal clear, deep red-brown, no head. Aroma of sour cherries, wine, oak, balsamico vinegar, burnt sugar, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is incredibly sour; delicious. The mouthfeel is light, and the carbonation is moderate. Long aftertaste with balsamico and wine-like notes.
