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.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle thanks to portableparty! Dark clear mahogany pour, a little light lacing and very tart cherry aroma. Flavor is also tart dark cherries, a little sugar, muddled raspberries and finished very dry and sour on the aftertaste. Very nice.

Such an enjoyable sour ale. Amazing sweet/sour balance of flavor. Rich orange candied sour notes that seem to continue forever. Dark cherry notes with some vanilla on the finish. Really good. Highly recommended.

shoulderbroken (2026) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle at Gainsbar. Dark red/brown colour with little golden head. Aroma is predominately sour but with a touch of sweetness too. Lots of cereal, dark fruit, marzipan and lots of acidity. Taste is very sour, vinous, then mellows in mouth to sweeter yet still sour finish. Quite spiky, and plenty of sour fruitiness.
