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 at home. Pours a deep red with minimal head. Aroma is dried fruit, old leather; pleasing. Taste is tart and characteristically light. Enjoy

Dark brown, tanned head. Smells of tart fruits, funk, cherries, caramel and malts. Medium sweet, then medium sour, nice tart fruits like apples and cherries, some caramel. Moderate bitter, mostly fruit bitterness. Very nice fruity beer, quite well balanced. Also the caramel is very well integrated. Love this one

Robe limpide, cuivrée aux reflets rubis. Nez oxydatif et gourmand à la fois (impression d’un vieux balsamique de Modène). Bouche à l’attaque très acidulée (pomme Granny), développant ensuite beaucoup de fruité (pêche blanche). Finale longue et complexe.

Very rich nutty sour beer with black cherry, chocolate, balsamic, and light vanilla. Very tart and acidic but a nice maltyness balances things a bit.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle. It pours a small, dense, light beige head over a clear, amber body. Cherry, wood, lemon and some oxidation in the aroma. Lightly funky. It’s dry on the palate, medium bodied and soft, with cherry, some oxidation, wood and lemon. Fruity, sourish, cherry finish that lasts for some time. A quite pleasant one, but not impressive. It sort of lacks a bit on most things. 130216
