COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep red-hued mahogany brown body with a medium creamy beige head. Looks great. Nose is plums, dark berries, light balsamic, wood, figs and hints of leather and sour funk tones. Taste is light wooden vanilla and red fruit tones up front, then transcending into a lemony tart lactobacterial landscape flanked by figs and plums. Lovely mild, yet tart finish. Medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel with high drinkability. A splendid Flemish red ale, and I have a strong suspicion this will become one of my go-to beers if it stays accessible through Vinmonopolet.

omikr0n (730) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown color with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is vinegar, cork. Flavor is very sour, sparkling wine, red wine, wood, dry. Unfortunately the sourness supresses other flavors too much.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
12oz bottle $5.99. Dark red-brown color, good head at first and then a film of bubbles. Smells a bit like cherries, wood, brett adn possibly pedio(?), I anticipate it will be sour. Taste is more complex than I expected with the wood playing a good part, sour but not completely mouth puckering. One of the better Flanders Reds that I’ve had.

Light aroma notes of bread and apples. Decent palate, leaves Granny Smith tartness on the lips. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No idea how I overlooked this beer for so long. This is a great sour ale and wasn’t nearly the price of some of the others I’ve come across. Complex flavors. Fruits and vinegars. Citrus and pome, sweet grapefruit and grapes. The yeasts are present in the flavor. Not a whole lot of astringency. Great finish.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Dark purple colour. Sour aroma, cola. Sour taste, with a touch of sweetness. Vinegar and apples. Overall quite a nice Flemish Red, though I still prefer Duchesse.

gunnar (5296) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear dark amber with a good sized creamy off-white head. Aroma is funky fruity, barnyard, wood and red ripe berries. Taste is fresh and dry fruity, crisp and tart, very well balanced, lingering dark red berries, good one.
