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.

0.33 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Looks like cognac. Taste is sour as in lambic. Well, this is actually lambic made in the wrong place - Flanders. Colour is darker, though. Great.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu tulppaaniin todella syvän punaisena ja "kirkkaana", noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksusta löytyy vahvimpana hapanta kirsikkaisuutta ja makeampaa herukkaisuutta tai rypälemäisyyttä, hiven kuivaa hedelmäisyyttä on myös joukossa. Maku on todella happaman kirsikkainen, herukkaisuus, lähes mansikka tasapainottaa sitä hieman. Hyvin lievää brettamaista nahkaisuutta on joukossa myös. Suutuntuma on lähes suuta supistavan hapan, mutta samalla yllättävän täyteläinen juotavuuden kärsimättä. Hieno olut, tähän tyyliin törmää valitettavasti turhan harvoin. Melkein lambicmaisen hapan ja todella täyteläinen prosentteihin nähden.

mikkopen (1047) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2016
330 ml bottle. Clear dark brownish red colour, thin off-white head. Tart aroma of cherry and wood. The flavour is tart, with cherries and raspberries, and notes of oak and apples. Tasty.

Nurmis (343) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2016
33cl bottled. Pours dark red without head. Cherries, redcurrant. Heavily sour, perhaps even overtly so. Really good.

Possibly too sour... But interesting. Might be great with a corned beef sandwich with lots of sour kraut and mustard...

Underbart vacker färg i lite rödskimrande. Smak av ahlgrens sura bilar eller något annat surt snask.

Clear deep red colour, small foamy tan head. Aroma has cherries, yeast, vanilla. Really strong, sour taste with slightly dry finish. Light body, low carbonation, a bit watery mouthfeel. Very flavourful, pretty good sour.
