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.

330ml bottle from trade with JefVerstraete. Many thanks! Pours a deep red with bubbly pink head. Simply gorgeous. Perfectly balanced with a soft fruitiness, robust sourness and cheek sucking tartness. An absolute joy to savour.

Very sour balsamic smell. Appearance is flat and black. Palate is sour yet even. Taste is very nice vinegar and sourness. Excellent!

Taster at whole foods. Pretty great sour. Complex and balanced with a pleasantly sour finish. Pours a pleasant warm hued reddish brown. Definite warmth from the oak and vanilla and nice fruit notes (cherry, raspberry) round it out. Caramel, green apple and a dose of vinegar. Super solid lambic. Plays the balance card perfectly. One to drink and ponder. Note to self- buy some quality aged cheese and pair with this.

Westchesterco (1246) - mclean, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2015
On tap at trio on the outer banks in North Carolina it is an amber color with a slight head. The aroma is sour cherry and the taste is a strong sour flour that finishes like a tart green apple Not bad since I am not a fan of sour beers

michellekc (4) - California, USA - APR 18, 2015 does not count
Medium Dark Reddish color and nearly clear with a little head. Strong cherry aroma. Cherry less noticeable in the flavor but still there. This is a sour beer for people who like sour.

Pours clear deep chestnut brown with a medium beige head, excellent retention. Aromas of tart cherry, citrus, plum, caramel, and bread. Medium light body, gentle carbonation. Moderate sweetness, strong puckering sour, very little bitter finish. Delicious!
