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.

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.

Doofgoblin (496) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2013
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.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2013
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 0,33 l bottle. Clear dark cherry amber colour with small off white head. CHreey and apple in aroma, some clorin all the way back there, the taste reminds me of a candy i had when i was a kid. Dried fruit and more cherries, a very nice balance between the oak, bitterness and sourness from the lambic . One of my favorite beers, can never get enough. See myself nipping to this many nights in the future
