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.

Draught. Nose is sharp lactic acid with light malt notes and a vague fruitiness. Deep mahogany with no head. Flavor is sour with a slight sweetness. Notes of cherries, cranberries, raisin, and caramel. Medium bodied. Slow finish.

Lukaduke (3039) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Pours a deep ruby brown with a finger of eggshell fizzy foam. On the nose its earthy, tart and full of dried cherry and a touch of vanilla. On the palate its a lot of the same with a elegant delicate balance between sweet cherry fruit and tart earthiness. Nice dark woodsy touches in the finish.

Bottle, 9C. Deep red with a beige head that’s soon a wisp. Aroma of apples, cherries, under-ripe apricots, wood. Tart apples, some cherries and dried berries. Tart rather than funky, finish is of old vinegar and wood. The sourness builds up and left it feeling just a little thin, but vivid and refreshing.

TorkDaDork (7) - NORWAY - DEC 21, 2012 does not count
Funky smell, but not too much. First mouthfeel is very sour and a bit less sparkly than i expected. The aftertaste is very rich and balances the sourness in a great way. Good at low and higher temps up to 10 c.

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2012
330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Langnes. A deep ruby shade to a dark brown coloured body. Bare naked surface. Dusty sour aroma. Dry vanilla oak and tart, red berries to the taste buds. Tart and sweet ending. Well, well…ok, I thought, without drinking it all (Tromsø, 15.12.2012).

The aroma is tart, sweet, and fruity with a touch of body odor and wood. The appearance maroon with a fizzy head that fades away. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is fizzy. Overall quite flawed but as the style goes quite drinkable.

realaledrinker (35) - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Pours ruby red with an off-white head that is gone almost instantly. Aroma is pleasant with cherry being dominant. Nice body and sour through and through. True Flanders tradition. My favorite beer as far as readily available goes.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours a nearly opaque reddish brown with a small off white head. Aroma is tart cherries, green apples, and wheat. The taste starts out cherry sweet, then green apple tart and finishes nearly vinegar sour. Very good lambic/sour.

NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2012
Deep dark ruby red, medium but fast settling head. Smells like cherries with medium level yeasty funk. Tastes Tarty and sour , but fruity cherry styles. Enjoying this with fresh manjimup cherries. Yes.
