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.

Smell of fermented hay (silo). Sour berries tickles the nose. Looks georgeous, seetrough reddish brown with a thin white head. Taste is sour cherries mixed with a smooth vanilla flavour. I'm not normally into sour ales, but a friend said you just have to taste them enough times. Turns out he's right, I really enjoy this one :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great nose, proper color, perfect amount of sour taste, clean finish, what more could you ask for in a sour.....too bad I got the last pour before the keg blew.

This beer is very sour. It’s a red flemish sour ale with complex flavors. it aged in an oak barrel for 18 months. Not one of my favourite beer types but if you like sour ales you should try to find this one. It’s a very special beer.

MoritzF (9267) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, mahogany colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Mildly woody malty aroma with caramel, a balanced level of acidity and fruity notes of morello cherries, red berries and citrus. Moderately sour and delicately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Vinegary sour-fruity taste with a delicate caramel-malty base; very lasting sour-tart, woody and slightly tannic finish with present notes of cherries. An awesome Flemish Red. 11.I.13
