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.

On tap at Apex with mcberko, pours a clear deep orange / red with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, funk and some sweetness. Flavour of sour red fruits, citrus, light worcester sauce, light sweetness and light spice. Well-balanced, smooth for the style. Really nice.

Fin (9224) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2011
On tap at Hasselt Beer Festival, Hasselt, Limburg, Belgium 12.11.11 in company of Loz, Jackie, Simon and David. Pours a light chestnut colour with a small rim of bubbles. The aroma reminded me of the De Dolle Orbier Special Reserva, quite lovely nose. Fruity, tangy and with a great sourness in the mouth, some dark fruits, ossibly summer fruits such as bitter cherries, there is wet wood and the sourness rules supreme but it is a lovely sourness. Possibly my favourite of the day. . A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

Touch of other fruit sweetness. Very sour and acidic. T - Kicks off with some strong sour cherry tartness and sourness. Very sweet as well.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured from draft and poured a nice dark red color with a small head. excellent aromatics with some funk, sour apples, cherries and spices. Nice depth as well with a good tart quality too. medium/full bodied with a nice acidic bite to it. Very good feel as well. This is a real quality sour and gives just the right amount of sourness.

On tap at Modeste Bier Festival. Didn’t have any expectations whatsoever, but what a surprise! Almost as good asz the Foederbier from rodenbach, and that’s a compliment. Tart, acidic, complex... you name it, it’s got it! Great!
