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.

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.

On tap at Ol Beer in Walnut Creek, Ca. Lots of carbonation in it. Nice on the palate. Get the cherry flavor right up front. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Half pour at øL. Aroma is cherries, vanilla, oak and Brett. Flavor matches, but with a much brighter oak and carbonation than Intense Red. Still, I have to say that I like it better. Great beer.

Poured from a bottle with almost no head or lacing. Beautiful ruby color. Med to light body with lively carbonation. Lightly tart with notes of oaky tannins and cherry vanilla. Would def drink this again.

Pours a deep dark reddish brown color with big off white heads. Tart aroma with some dark fruit type character. Flavor is sour, tart, and has a lot of fruity type flavors...cherry mostly and light cranberry type bitterness. One of my favorite "easy to get" sours, hands down.

Intense sour beer with a delightful fruity layer and a nice hint of oak. Sticky mouthfeel. Very good.

Aroma is barnyardish and kinda funky. I also get some cherries. The flavor has prominent cherries and apples with some slight flavors of chocolate, vanilla and oak. One of the best sours i’ve had!
