COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Mahogany pour with a tiny offwhite head. Aroma is tart cherry, wet cherry wood, acetic acid, some light brown sugar. Mouth is creamy but not overbearing, relatively drinkable. Flavor is tart cherry pit, woody, sour fruit and a bit of sweet malt. Really quite good.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2010
On tap at Blind Lady Ale House (San Diego, CA): Pours an intensely hazed, reddish/copper/brown and topped with a nice two-finger beige head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of tart cherries, balsamic vinegar, light chocolate, and under-ripened fruits such as apple, grape, and banana. Flavors are similar. Extremely tart in the beginning of the mouthfeel, but quickly rounds out towards a more balanced and smooth finish. Drinkability: Really quite good overall, but lacks complexity to other sours (Russian River... and there’s just no comparison). Pairing: Godiva cherry cordials. Rebuy: Yes. #338 on 13032010. DG.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Tap at Max’s Belgian Fest 2010. Pours a nice deep reddish copper with a fizzy head fades to nothing. Aroma is nicely fruity, prickly sharp acid, big sharp cherry pit and black cherry, fruity and big caramel malts that have turned to aceto. Flavor is lightly prickly upfront then gets more acidic in the back- lots of acetobacter, some cherry pie, pitty, tannic, cyanide, mineral, sharp overall very clean and somewhat easy to drink- although a lot of aceto prickliness. Very nice.
