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.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottled. Poured lovely garnet with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sour wood and cherry notes with accents of fruity funk and lesser cheese.. very interesting. The flavor found sour cherry vinegar and aged oak throughout.. more tart on the edges.. finished dry with oak and sour cherries. Light-medium bodied, dry, and sour on the palate.. tasty and engaging.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle from Jenny. Reddish brown pour with little to no head. Sour, but bearably so. Brown sugar, lots of berries, tart cherry, and some woodiness.

weihenweizen (2888) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle obtained through trade with JStax. Pours translucent crimson with small off-white head. Little lacing, mediumi/thin body, low carbonation, and sour aroma. Taste is complex sour, and wonderful fruit (mostly cherry). Not as sour as some, but very good, thanks JStax.

Amber lambic with a light tan head. Immediately acerbic. Cherry, chocolate and apple appear in the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thebeertourist (5170) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pour deep reddish brown with a smallish head. Potent sour cherries, yoghurt, vanilla and marcipan nose, which are repeated in the mouth. Not too extreme what regards dryness, still with a good blend of caramel as a balance to the fruity sourness. Quite a nice surprise from Bockor!

Nice ruby body, thin white head. Nose is lactic sourness, oak, balsamic, strawberries, cherries. Flavor follows, lots of nice lemony lacto character, balsamic, really juicy berries, aspirin, wood. Great balance.

Finn (6046) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Drukket i heimen 21 Nov 12. Amber. Pen, litt farget skum som fester seg til glasset og varer en stund. Frisk syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken lever opp til aromaen: Stikkelsbær. Det dukker imidlertid opp en litt kjemisk undertone som drar ned helhetsinntrykket. Avslutter syrlig men forblir forfriskende.

pete4999 (1389) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle, as pictured. Poured a deep somewhat-clear ruby red. Had a strong cherry taste to it, slight sourness, but very balanced. Not overly-puckering sour, but enough to let you know it’s a sour beer. Went over very well with some of my non-beer-drinker family members as well.
