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, 33cl) Clear, mahogany colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Mildly woody malty aroma with caramel, a balanced level of acidity and fruity notes of morello cherries, red berries and citrus. Moderately sour and delicately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Vinegary sour-fruity taste with a delicate caramel-malty base; very lasting sour-tart, woody and slightly tannic finish with present notes of cherries. An awesome Flemish Red. 11.I.13

Deep red pour, no real head. Sour wild yeast on the nose.Tangy/bitter. Dark fruit and wet stone, with young citrus on the tongue. Dry finish. Little too sour for my taste, but I would like to try it with food.

Beerenberger (1564) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Aroma is ascetic - wonderful sourness. Pours a transparent red with no head or lacing. The taste is gloriously sour - makes my taste buds stand up and say "Thank you!" Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, an exceptionally pleasing sour beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish brown with an off white head. Fruity sour aroma with a hint of vinegar. The vinegar aroma does not transfer to the flavor, very sour and fruity flavor. Very nice sour.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottled. Poured lovely garnet with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sour wood and cherry notes with accents of fruity funk and lesser cheese.. very interesting. The flavor found sour cherry vinegar and aged oak throughout.. more tart on the edges.. finished dry with oak and sour cherries. Light-medium bodied, dry, and sour on the palate.. tasty and engaging.
