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.

Great lambic that pours a deep reddish tan with not much head. Nose is very much of cherry. Taste is cherry with a tinge of vanilla, just playing the line between sour and overwhelming. The taste was great, although the palate let off and the sour became a bit much at the end.

One of my favorite beers at PIB ’12. Gorgeous dark red pour and red head, sour cherry and currant notes dominated, with a hint of vanilla. Starts sour without puckering and eases out.

11.2 oz into small tasting glass A- Deep amber, fine head that fades fast. S- Smells sour I guess? My palate is not very refined when it comes to sours so that’s the best I can do. T- Sweet and sour seem fairly well balanced. Again, my palate is not refined enough to enjoy this, so I can’t say much more. M- Fairly thick, low carbonation. O- Sours are not my thing. As sours go, this is one of the better I have had, so I don’t want to rate it poorly. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-18-2012 03:09:43

Sour cherry aroma. Flavor starts sweet, with a very sour, acidic finish. This isn’t my favorite style, but this is still a great beer.

Brownish red colored pour. Nary a head and no lacing to be found anywhere. Acetic, sour fruit notes in the nose. Very tart bite up front. Nice sourness mixed with a slightly fruity note. Not bad. Would drink again.

Deep red color with a large head that quickly faded. Aroma is a mix of sour, vanilla/oak, and cherry. Taste is a very pleasant tart that seems more inviting then any other sour I've had. Finishes dry that welcomes another sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great beer for the girl in you life that swears she doesn’t drink beer. Sweet, tart cherry flavor with a lasting delicious finish. No added fruit is masking this excellent sour, the gateway for all things delicious.

Bottle from New Leaf Market. Clear, deep amber pour with a fizzy whit ehead that fades quick. Nose is nice sour cherries, vinegar, lemon peels, hints of hay, funk and maybe some lingering vanilla beans. Balance leaning on the puckering vinegar side with more sour cherries, lemons, leather and underlying barn funk. Finishes tart with great carbonation. Pretty damn tasty.

Clear dark mahogany with a quickly fading tan head... tart lightly funky cherry oaky aroma, mild sweetness, more tart than sweet in this case cherry is relatively intense... lively fruity cherry mild tartness, mild sweetness, definitely a top notch oud bruin... intensely sour up front, fades quickly to a sweetness that is still overtaken by the sour... medium bodied, very flavorful...

Pours a dark red-brown with a minimal head. Smell is cherry, dough, earthy. Taste is very sour with a bit of sweetness - cherries, a little chocolate - very powerful.
