Omer Vander Ghinste Cuvée des Jacobins (Rouge)

RATINGS: 1206   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.86/5   EST. CALORIES: 165   ABV: 5.5%
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.

johnnnniee (5740) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 21, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2020 Bottle from the Packie. Pours a brilliantly clear dark amber with ruby at the edges and a tightly bubbled off white head that slowly recedes. Tart cherry and light lemon tartness with hints of balsamic. Sweet bread and light brown sugary maltiness. Decent puckering in the back of the palette. Nice Sour Red.

Alex60 (853) - - JUN 8, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2020 Bouteille 33cl couleur rouge, mousse rosée, goût à l'attaque acide, sur la cerise, aqueux et fin sèche, pas mal

RobBestwick (1223) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2020 330ml bottle. Sour cherry and vanilla aroma. Pours dark brown with a very small light brown head. Sour cherry flavour with some cola and champagne notes. Medium bodied. Long sour finish.

VDuquerroux (3589) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 1, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2020 Wednesday, April 29, 2020. Bottle, 33cL. 5.5%. Gift from Jybi ! Merci encore ?! A sparkling brown mahogany clear beer with a medium off-white foamy head ; medium retention. Wet cardboard notes that became more and more pronounced. Too bad... My exemplary was way before best before date (6/2021)... Nevertheless, also : vinegar, red berries (cherry notes), wood, light caramel. Medium round sweet, medium to sharp acid, dry refreshing. Good body, average thin texture, average good gaseous, messy wet cardboard vinegar round sour lasting finish. Overall, just good ! Very disappointed, there surely must be a great story told behind this wet dusty curtain... I will taste this beer again !

UPDATED: APR 26, 2020 This one is not sour, it’s SOUR. It’s like drinking vinegar. I’m sure it’s an acquired taste and there’s apparently an audience for it, I don’t mind dour, but this is unbearable for me personally.

Ljus (872) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2020
UPDATED: APR 24, 2020 Apparence : Brune, reflets rouges, col beige foncé, bonne rétention, carbonatation moyenne.
Nez : Boisé, fruité, vinaigré, pointe de malt.
Goût : Vinaigre de vin rouge, acidité assez vive, touche fruitée que j’associe plus à la canneberge qu’à la cerise, le goût est moins boisé qu’au nez et le malt plus discret.
Sensation : Corps moyen-mince, finale moyennement longue sur l’acidité et l’astringence.
Bref : Hmmm... un brin trop axé sur l'acidité et les fruits aigres à mon goût et un malt moins expressif que ce que j'aime. Je vois l'intérêt pour la bière, mais ce ne serait pas mon premier choix dans le style.

TeLaDoIoGegia (136) - ITALY - APR 16, 2020
UPDATED: APR 16, 2020 Colore rosso rubino con un bel cappello di schiuma fine. Aromi delicati di frutta rossa, aceto, legno, tabacco. Al palato mantiene tutto quello che aveva promesso al naso: aceto balsamico, ciliegie, ribes, uva, mela, vaniglia, cacao, pelle, botte, stalla. Dolce e acida, citrica, con un finale lungo e profondo, leggermente astringente. Corpo medio/pieno acetico e oleoso, carbonazione bassa. Complessa ma beverina, pulita, equilibrata. Impossibile resistergli! Birra Gegia

HuskerTan (3873) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - MAR 31, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2020 Bottle. A- Cherry, mild cola, slightly dirty. A- Deep dark red color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Cherry, mild vanilla, mild cocoa, mild cola, subtle tartness, subtle funk. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- 5 years old. Not too bad although I think it'd be better fresh. Nice strong dried cherry flavor and aroma. Cola notes strong when it's cold and gradually brings out some funk as it warms.

DraftSensei110 (385) - - JAN 25, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2020 Cerveza de un color marrón rojizo; con un dedo de espuma de retención media. Carbonatación ligera y cuerpo aceitoso. Aroma a cereza, malta y algo de roble. En boca es agria, con un toque tostado y para nada amarga. No es lo mío.

Gwilbreuf (205) - FRANCE - DEC 14, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2019 Robe acajou. Un nez sublime un peu vinaigré. La bouche est complexe et laisse place à une belle acidité avec des notes de cerises aigres. La maturation en foudre fournit des Bretts et de belles notes boisées. Un petit bijou du style 'Flanders Red Ale'.
