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.

Light aroma notes of bread and apples. Decent palate, leaves Granny Smith tartness on the lips. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No idea how I overlooked this beer for so long. This is a great sour ale and wasn’t nearly the price of some of the others I’ve come across. Complex flavors. Fruits and vinegars. Citrus and pome, sweet grapefruit and grapes. The yeasts are present in the flavor. Not a whole lot of astringency. Great finish.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Dark purple colour. Sour aroma, cola. Sour taste, with a touch of sweetness. Vinegar and apples. Overall quite a nice Flemish Red, though I still prefer Duchesse.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear dark amber with a good sized creamy off-white head. Aroma is funky fruity, barnyard, wood and red ripe berries. Taste is fresh and dry fruity, crisp and tart, very well balanced, lingering dark red berries, good one.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2012
Medium tan head. Clear brown body. Vinous wooden red berries aroma with yoghurty notes. Sweet-acidic wooden wild berry taste with yoghurty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with astringent sting. Dry-sweet-acidic wild berries aftertaste with wooden yoghurty notes. A good one. Clean and highly drinkable, but still subtle. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Triaden Lørenskog.)

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2012
330 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized white head initially, but it falls down quickly. Nice sweet vinegary aroma with dried fruit and a little funk. Nice acidic flavours with a good dose of candy-like flavours. Red berries, vanilla og cherries. A little too sweet and slightly artificial, but overall a really nice Flemish red.

Pours dark reddish brown with a tiny off white head. Aromas of sour cherries, barnyard and a little caramel. Tons of energy on the palate - a cascade of sour berries, barnyard funk and those sour coke bottle candies that the kiddies like. Also lots of grapey, winey flavours. A delicious sour- I’ll be having this one again.
