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.

Tap at the Repub. From notes. Pour is a very slightly hazy red brown, with just a ring of head that fades almost instantly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is light lactic notes, a fair bit of nutty and woody character, a slight amount of raisin malt. Taste is similar, with just enough tartness to let you know its there, as well as a nice biscuit and cracker finish that really works well. Could drink a lot of this.

On tap at Apex with mcberko, pours a clear deep orange / red with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, funk and some sweetness. Flavour of sour red fruits, citrus, light worcester sauce, light sweetness and light spice. Well-balanced, smooth for the style. Really nice.

On tap at Hasselt Beer Festival, Hasselt, Limburg, Belgium 12.11.11 in company of Loz, Jackie, Simon and David. Pours a light chestnut colour with a small rim of bubbles. The aroma reminded me of the De Dolle Orbier Special Reserva, quite lovely nose. Fruity, tangy and with a great sourness in the mouth, some dark fruits, ossibly summer fruits such as bitter cherries, there is wet wood and the sourness rules supreme but it is a lovely sourness. Possibly my favourite of the day. . A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

Draft at Mekong. Thanks Graham. Pours a clear ruby color with a large tan creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Tart aroma with notes of caramel, cherries, stone fruits, earthy notes and a slight vinegar note. The taste is tart cherries, strawberries, stone fruits, earthy notes. Medium bodied and refreshing.
