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.

Pours a ruby coloured red with very little head. Lovely yeasty smell. Taste is nicely balanced sour with plenty of tart

Ulysse (294) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Acid in the nose. Sour taste similar to lambic. Well balanced beer. A bit sweet. Definitely worth trying.

Bière acide. Acidité qui arrive directement en bouche et qui évolue en arrière Goût. Acidité à la limite d’une geuze.

canary dog (694) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Dark tawny red. A little dark foam. Bracingly tart-- almost feels like electricity on the tongue. The most pronounced and well-defined palate and mouthfeel I have ever experienced with a beer. Delicious and certainly not for everyone. I have two more in my basement and I can’t wait to enjoy them soon.

Dark red sour. Great aroma. A solid sour. Very interesting beer but i can’t drink more than one of this during one evening :)

ABT_S54 (265) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Duchesse de Bourgogne glass. Pours a dark maroon colour with a short lived beige head. Aroma is barrel funk and red berries. Taste is quite severe with it’s sourness but flavourful enough to balance this with it’s complex flavours of tart redcurrants and sour oakiness. A very good Flemish red.

reidbeer (1) - Hawaii, USA - DEC 7, 2014 does not count
Definitely have the vanilla, berries, and some plum in the nose. Pretty tart and good sourness. Pick up apple and cherry notes for sure. Got that puckerness from cranberries as well. Very nice sour.
