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.

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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottled. Poured lovely garnet with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sour wood and cherry notes with accents of fruity funk and lesser cheese.. very interesting. The flavor found sour cherry vinegar and aged oak throughout.. more tart on the edges.. finished dry with oak and sour cherries. Light-medium bodied, dry, and sour on the palate.. tasty and engaging.

Bottle from Jenny. Reddish brown pour with little to no head. Sour, but bearably so. Brown sugar, lots of berries, tart cherry, and some woodiness.

weihenweizen (3187) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle obtained through trade with JStax. Pours translucent crimson with small off-white head. Little lacing, mediumi/thin body, low carbonation, and sour aroma. Taste is complex sour, and wonderful fruit (mostly cherry). Not as sour as some, but very good, thanks JStax.

Amber lambic with a light tan head. Immediately acerbic. Cherry, chocolate and apple appear in the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
