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.

Small bottle. Pours a very pretty deep ruby pour with off white head. Aroma of cherries, a hint of vanilla, light ascetic acid, woody. Taste is sour, fruity, lots of cherry, clean acidity without the muddy fruitiness beers like duchesse have for example. Very clean and refined. Easy drinking and quite tasty.

0,33 l bottle ordered from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Pours a beautiful clear burgundy brown body, under dense, quikly fading tanned head. Mild vinegar fruity nose. Fresh acidic red berry-accented flavor. Notes of cherries and vanilla. A distinct underlying sweetness. Smooth in the mouth. Light funky acidic-sweet berry finish. Quite sweet, yet a very fresh and highly drinkable Flemish Red.

330ml bottle from the LCBO.clear red pour, with a slightly tinged beige head. Beautiful acidic, funky aroma, with hints of cherry, and oak. the body is great, and the carb is soft. the finish is quite a bit more sour than i expected. some good notes of funk, and a big dose of acidity.Notes of oak, cherry, tart berries round it out. very impressed and surprised.
