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.

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 (9359) - 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

Deep red pour, no real head. Sour wild yeast on the nose.Tangy/bitter. Dark fruit and wet stone, with young citrus on the tongue. Dry finish. Little too sour for my taste, but I would like to try it with food.

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Aroma is ascetic - wonderful sourness. Pours a transparent red with no head or lacing. The taste is gloriously sour - makes my taste buds stand up and say "Thank you!" Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, an exceptionally pleasing sour beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish brown with an off white head. Fruity sour aroma with a hint of vinegar. The vinegar aroma does not transfer to the flavor, very sour and fruity flavor. Very nice sour.
