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 330 ml. Wow, that certainly is a sour one! Pours very dark red (almost brown), with small off white head, quickly disappearing. Aroma is of cherries and some balsamics. Amaing (and a little overwhelming) sourness, along with a touch of sweetness. Explosive.

berlinoise2go (688) - NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle (33cl). Lovely deep rusty red colour. Small off-white soft head, settles as a stable ring, no lacing. Sour-sweet aroma with cherry fruit and crushed kernels, aged vinegar, blackcurrant. Medium body, modest/flat carbonation. Rich, sweet/tart/vinegary taste, amazingly well-balanced. Mild vinegar burn (pleasant!) in the finish.

Mtbiker54 (39) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 3, 2013
Une belle couleur ambrée avec des reflets rouges. En bouche une acidité maîtrisée accompagnée d’un fruité assez rond. Toujours en bouche un côté vineux présent assez longtemps.
