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. Aroma has huge notes of sour cherry, raspberry, citrus, vanilla and sweet tarts. Awesome. Dark brown reddish hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is heavy sweet, tart and sour. Palate is medium bodied and watery soft. Overall a very nice sour tart brew that really delivered the tartness in spades. A good one!

tastybeer (1728) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep red/mahogany with an off-white head which quickly fades. No retention/lace. Aroma of sour cherry, wood, tannins, light dark fruit. Taste is moderately sour, woody, tannin, earth, light sweetness. Palate is dry, low carbonation, slick, sour finish. Good.

madvike (2734) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle - Pours deep ruby red with a thin light tan ring of head. Dried cherries, white grape, some Turkish apricot, and some sour SweetTart notes. Very smooth. The taste...holy hell is this good. Big sour cherries, Smarties, vanilla, and a lots of bracing vinegar sourness. Finishes with big time Smarties and cherry. Both puckering and smooth on the finish, if that makes any sense. Wonderfully silky smooth palate, probably due to the fine-bubbled carbonation. Oh my God I love this beer.

Love this beer! Pours dark ruby brown with an off white head. Tart cherries on the nose. Tart cherry flavor throughout, yet deliciously bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Borresteijn (4686) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2012
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. Clear deep red to purple colour, off white head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, cinnamon, tart red fruits, red grape juice, vanilla, you can tell there’s lambic in there. Flavour is rather tart at first, red fruits, sour lemon, red grapes, very vineous, light vanilla and cinnamon, tart fruity finish. Light bodied. Very tasty Flemish Red.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
Draft. Enticingly tart, gently sweet and fruity aroma, lightly acetic and woody, with notes of cherry and red grape, some definite yeast funk is present here as well. Deep, dark red in color, clear, with a lasting, fine head. Flavor profile is fruity and features a strong degree of sourness throughout, tannic, dry, oaky and with a brief flash of sweetness, more yeast funkiness and farmy character appearing as well. Somewhat winey finish. "Warms" the mouth, with a sufficiently sharp, acidic bite, active on the palate, body is medium. Incredibly flavorful and complex, also stunningly sour. Wow, this was delicious.
