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. Pours clear brown red with a nice soapy foamy off white head that slowly fades to a tight foamy collar. Aroma is tart cherries and candied sour sugar and slight funk. Taste is puckering sour cherries and very acidic, some wild funk and lactic tastes as well. Palate is medium and solid carbonation with a acidic puckering dry finish. This is one awesome sour!

11.2 oz. bottle served in a tulip. Pours a very reddish brown with a finger of off white head. Bottle conditioned. Sour cherries and vinegar in the aroma. Light bodied. Very tart and acidic, more tart cherries. Sour pucker in the finish. Little bit of oak. Very drinkable. Nice to see this in bottles.

On tap at hot city pizza for beer week. Aroma is of sour cherry, makes my mouth water. Flavour is also dominated by sour cherries, some cocoa in the way background. This is very close to Russian river supplication, or perhaps visa versa.

rivertranced (25) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Draft. Really nice, tart, Flanders Red. Aroma of vanilla. Very sweet, very tart, with strong presence of cherries. Beautiful tartness on the palate. A great beer to pair with a hearty meal, or even as dessert. I?d prefer this one in fall or winter.
