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.

Darker pour with a medium tan head. Strong sour cherry aroma, very fruity on the nose. Very sour taste, not at all unpleasant with complex flavors that are fruit forward. Carbonation sharp on the tongue. A challenging beer if you are not already familiar with or into sours. Would I drink again? definitely. Would I buy/order again? maybe. sours are still a mystery to me and I would order anything I’ve never tried before something I’ve already had.

Dark brown pour with a thin cream colored head. Nice nose of cherries and malt. A bit sweet, but tart in the finish. Medium to full mouthfeel and a nice lasting finish.

his pours a slightly hazy dark brown with hints of read and a smaller fizzy short lived head. The smells are very tart and vinegary, sour cherries, brett, some barnyard funk and a hint of vanilla. The feel is medium, high carbonation. The taste is amazing, extremely tart / sour, almost overwhelming, but then you get a hint of sweet balance, some vanilla, plenty of sour cherries.

Frothmeister (727) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a beautiful clear ruby with a one finger beige head. The nose has HUGE sour cherry notes, very light balsamic, and a faint earthiness. The taste is enormous, again with sour cherry notes, and pomegranate in the finish with some lovely carbonation. It’s hard to believe this is the product of wheat, and barley because it just flat out tastes like a fermented fruit beverage. I love it. SO, SO good.

Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle: Poured a red color ale with a large pink color foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of oak, sour cherries with tart notes is quite nice. Taste is a very drinkable mix of oak and sour cherries with some tart notes and very little acidic notes with light lingering sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. This si a solid version of a Flander red beer.
