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.

Pours a hazy reddish brown from the bottle with thin ring of off-white lace that doesn’t really stick. Aroma is sour tart funky fruit. Taste follows, not overly sweet and well balanced. Pretty damn good.

Idiosynkrasie (3810) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, brown-ish dark red colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, beige head. Complex, fruity aroma has notes of cherries and red berries (minimally artificial hints of HARIBO Happy Cherries), a sourish touch, BA notes of oak and vanilla. Taste is sourish, fruity, eventually prevailing notes of vinegar compete with sweet fruity notes of cherry and red berries, additionally a dry, oaky touch; prickling carbonation accounts for a sherbet character, long lasting sourish finish.

lownote (79) - USA - SEP 7, 2014
Poured from growler into stemware. Intensely dark red with a bit of bubbly head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sour cherry and strong. Palate nice on the tongue... not too thick and a bit carbonated. Taste is sour with cherry flavors, a little vinegar, light amounts of vanilla and oak from the barrel.

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap. Pours an intense ruby red, with a very small pink head which slowly fades, but leaves good lacing. Nose is sour cherry and balsamic vinegar. Taste follows the nose. A delightful sour lambic.
