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.

Beer5000 (5862) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2016
330 ml @ Delirium Monasterium, Brussels. Unclear orange body with a nice white head. Strong and slightly unusually aroma, funky with malt, wood, spices, dry fruit and some booze. The flavor felt strange and unusually, slightly unbalanced at the first sips, but it seems to saddle down a bit when getting used to it. Quite pleasant actually, funky Brett, wood, malt, mature fruit, alcohol and spices. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Definitively interesting and quite tasty after a little while.

skortila (5238) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2016
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has cider, strawberry, funk, oak, citrus, some lactics. Wonderful. Bit hazy, orange coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is light bitter, has funk, cookies, white wine, citric sourness and some vinegar which evolves more to creamy lactics in the finish. Carbonation is above average. Mouthfeel is full in the finish when the lactics kick in. Pretty awesome stuff.
