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.

On tap the the Republic in Minneapolis. Deep red-brown body; clear with a thin head that soon reduced to a ring. I had a typical reaction to this in that the aroma was a bit unappealing but the flavor was good However, in this case the aroma was nearly neutral (but too much ’vinegar’) and the flavor was very good. Nicely tart and moderately fruity, O: Excellent for style.

Wow en suröl som doftar komplext lite fruktigt druvigt. Smakar fylligt å väldigt likt en riktigt bra högklassisk cider. Mycket druvjos i smaken. Hört talas om detta sjukt prisade öl å jag måste hålla med absolut bästa Suröl jag smakat å därmed värd betygsätta på ratebeer. SNÄLLA BREKERIET å andra tillverkare av Suröl . LÄÄÄÄR

Flaska. Druvjuice i doften så det förslår. Visst är den sur men inte för mycket. En trevlig öl som nog passar bra till fet mat. En för mig en trevlig suröl!!
