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.

Bottled. Quite much red colour with a mediumsized reddish beige head. Aroma is dry wood, some mild sweetness as well as some vanilla, cherries and some sourness too. Flavour is very similar, but in a very nice balance, also has some slight yeasty and earthy notes. Somewhat dry palate. Very pleasant Flemish sour.

On draft at the new Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont Circle. Reddish brown color with scant off white head. Aroma of dark fruit and malt. Medium body, sour cherry taste with a background of very slight smoke. No hops to speak of. Nice example of a Flemish style, reminiscent of the old Rodenbach Grand Cru.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 2010-06-02, RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20, 7-3-7-3-15=35
Light blond color. Strong acidic and acetic aroma, with a dash of Bretts. Lean body, with low carbonation; a feeling of uva fragola; sour; citric. Refreshing.

2009-10-17, draught at Spuyten Duyvil, New York, 8-5-7-3-15=38
Red mahogany color. Nice aroma, lactic, with caramel and cellar smell. Reasonable body structure; caramel flavor, light residual sweetness, interesting fruit profile (cherries, but also raspberries, and some cherry kernels); medium lactic sourness. The final is lightly astringent and woody, a bit sour, but also short. Pleasant, it reminds me the Rodenbach family. Good.

Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Clear amber/brown beer with a beige head. Vinous fruity aroma, sourish, red berries, grapes, rubber, banana, hop notes, citrus. Sourish fruity flavor, hay, herbal, grapes, rubber, grapefruit, lemongrass, barnyard notes, red berries, woody, peach, sour. Really fresh and lovely to find this complexity in a rather low alcohol beer.
