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.

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.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2013
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.

douglas88 (8394) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a deep cherry color with a medium white head. A big aggressive nose of fruit, woody and sourness. The flavor is a solid Flemish sour with brown malts, tart cherries, some yeasty dryness, a bit of sawdust bite in the finish. Really good. Has that big malt base to balance out the sourness, and it drinks quite well. Excellent.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Great sour. Almost a sweet, rich balsamic vinegar taste. The aroma is sour, of cherry, and a faint funk. Pours brown with little head. Taste is of light cherry notes, balsamic vinegar, sweet, and a mouth aching sourness. Finishes dry, sweet, and sour. Really good.
