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.

-Jasså du vill ha något surt? säger bartendern på Moeder Lambic. Då ska du testa den här. SUUURT!!!!! Ättika och ciron. Balsamico och lite kola. Brutalt sur. Skrynklar ihop hela nyllet på ren reflex. Man kan skada sig.

Hint of cherry, rose, roasted smell, beautiful residish, brown color, that sour, yeasty, tangy taste, with a great after-swallow sour then bitter taste is perfect. Not enought ABV at 5.5%, I think more ABV would give it a hint of sweetness it is missing.

Smells sour and fruity. Nice reddish color with little or no head. Extremely sour, almost overpowering. Flavors definitely linger for awhile. Too sour for me.

Bottle. Pours light. clear brown with red hints, minimal to no white head. Smells very plumy, wood, slight sourness, cola. Has a really great balance with sourness and flavor. Rich, vanilla, good carbonation, medium-bodied, has a definite cola taste to it. It’s an exceptional beer!! Highly recommend!

Bardzo dobre piwo mocno kwaskowate, wisniowo octowe. Lambicj prawie ze. Fermentacja spontaniczne i lezakowanie w drewnie przez 18 miesiecy odcisnelo swoje pietno na smaku tego zacnego trunku. Nie kazdy je odbierze nalezycie i doceni, ale to piwo jest wielkiej klasy. Godny przedstawiciel dzikich czerwonych Ale.
