COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cuvee Jeune Homme is an oak-aged bitter beer. Originally it had a slight citrus-bitterness due to its 4 hops and the subsequent dry hopping. It is acidified while it ripens for 4 months in oak wine casks. The daring bitter-sour combination is moderated by this ripening process and as a consequence it is a very pleasant drinking beer.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast. Re-fermented in bottle.

ForlornHope (408) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Pours slightly hazy with a rocky white head which diminishes quite quickly. Slight aroma of citrus and leather. Taste is immediately quite sharp and acidic with a gentle bitterness to follow. Lots on the palate - sherbet, dusty lemons, oaky vanilla. Well-carbonated, not overly acidic, this is well-balanced and refreshing. Very drinkable and tasty.

Bottle pour at The Sovereign during the evening with Brouwerij De Leite event. Poured a light hazy, more of an orange hue color with a small white head. Aroma was a blast of funky, sour notes. Stonefruits. Flavor was apricot, light mango. Wine, vinous notes. Light, but tart finish with a mild clean character. Very mild tart finish in this one.

Pour les amateurs du genre uniquement. Trop acide, un côté vinaigre trop fort, on dirait presque une gueuze.
