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.

One of my favorite beers at PIB ’12. Gorgeous dark red pour and red head, sour cherry and currant notes dominated, with a hint of vanilla. Starts sour without puckering and eases out.

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.

dysenteri (48) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle from SB. Somewhere between red and brown color, with white head. Aroma: oak, grapes, kinda funky, cocktail cherries, dried cherry. Tarty and very dry taste, sourness. Lingers in the aftertaste a long time. Low carbonation, medium body. In all a very good flanders red, one of the best and very affordable.

330mk bottle from Park Royal. Pours a dark reddish copper with a tan head. Aroma is sour with cherries and oak notes. Taste is tart, dry, sour, cherry notes. Sour cherries aftertaste. Good beer, but not so full-bodied as other flemish ales.

Super tart sour scent that hits the nose just right. Cloudy reddish brown brew with huge tan head. Rightous sour taste that makes me want to drink more clove and herbs with a touch of something I just can’t put my tougue on yet but like. Medium body with great tart carbonation. Love sours and this just adds to what a sour should be. Nice work!
