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.

One of my favorite beers, I’ve drunk this a whole bunch of times and I keep coming back to it! It’s so good I struggle with saving bottles... Anyways dark reddish, small head, sweet & sour aroma of forest berries and cherries. Flavor is rich and it fills your whole mouth with yummyness, cherries & oak. I love the brett tartiness of this beer. Long and great sour aftertaste... This is one brew I just can’t get enough of, I love it!

Pours a dark reddish Amber, nose of cherries, grape juice, and some mild earth tones. Taste is dark sour cherries and ripe plum, followed by some green apple. Man this is good!

Bottle: Brown color with reddish hues and no head to speak of. Aroma of barnyard, oak barrels, ripe apples, and a bit of yeast. Delightful flavors of apples, vinegar, wood, tartness combine for a solidly classic Flemish sour. Lots of carbonation and acidity are also present but not too much. This is up there with the Dutchess!

Dark ruby red with off white head. Aroma is cherry and vanilla. Tast is tart... sweet and sour. And maybe a little more sour. Fairly dry finish.

At Holy Grale. Pours amber and red clear. Nose is very tart, vanilla, oak, caramel, maltz. Flavor is tart lacticity, sweet malts to balance, medium slick bod. Flavor is tart and acidic but not acetic. Nice drinkable sour and easy but complex. This is quite the drinkable sour.

Draft at Brasserie V. Deep burgundy-brown, stained glass look. Massive steady beige-red head. Intense funky sour cherry aroma, some lemony citrus. Sour citrus flavors, but also a soft, delicate malt body. Excellent stuff, world class all the way. Twangy red raspberry, cherry flavor, lots of sour depth. Mouth puckering, some lactic vanilla tones as well. The lactic sourness sticks with you. Phenomenal.

Bottle (12 oz).Deep cherry-brown color with a small quickly vanishing off-white head. Aroma is of sour cherries, wood, balsamic notes and slight chocolate presence. Taste is slightly sweet and moderately to heavily sour. Strong sour cherries, balsamic notes, wood, slight chocolate and some tobacco notes. Mouthfeel is dry and mouth puckering. Good Flemish Sour Ale.
