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 Tria. Ruby red color, small head. Very sour cherry ale - very smooth finish, however and found this beer to be excellent overall. Very enjoyable, already looking forward to having this one again!

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur rougeâtre sombre, mousse moyenne d’aucune tenue. Pardonnez l’inculte mais ce n’est pas du tout mon style de prédilection, d’autant que celle-ci est sans doute la plus aigre du style que j’ai jamais bu! Définitivement trop acide pour moi, je ne me suis pas régalé! Carbonnation fine et assez abondante. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Bottle. Pours dark red with a very small off-white head. Sour aroma of tart citrus/cherries, leather, earth and wood. Great earthy tart flavor with notes of cherry, wood and funk. Smooth but tart finish. A great sour.

On tap at Rattle N Hum, July 2012. Very dark red with a small head. Really sour aroma and taste with wood, vinegar and fruit. Refreshing and nicely drinkable.

Great lambic that pours a deep reddish tan with not much head. Nose is very much of cherry. Taste is cherry with a tinge of vanilla, just playing the line between sour and overwhelming. The taste was great, although the palate let off and the sour became a bit much at the end.

One of my favorite beers at PIB ’12. Gorgeous dark red pour and red head, sour cherry and currant notes dominated, with a hint of vanilla. Starts sour without puckering and eases out.

11.2 oz into small tasting glass A- Deep amber, fine head that fades fast. S- Smells sour I guess? My palate is not very refined when it comes to sours so that’s the best I can do. T- Sweet and sour seem fairly well balanced. Again, my palate is not refined enough to enjoy this, so I can’t say much more. M- Fairly thick, low carbonation. O- Sours are not my thing. As sours go, this is one of the better I have had, so I don’t want to rate it poorly. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-18-2012 03:09:43

Sour cherry aroma. Flavor starts sweet, with a very sour, acidic finish. This isn’t my favorite style, but this is still a great beer.
