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.

From a 11.2 oz bottle aged at least 5 years. Pours copper brown with hardly any head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, cherries, citrus zest. Modest carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of tart cherries, vinegar, slight lemon, subtle wood. Overall flavorful, refreshing, smooth yet tantalizing and tasty for the style.

Slight haze, reddish-brown, thin bubbly head. Oaky nose, slight balsamic, touch of dried dark fruits. A bit thin, but some nice oaky notes, dark fruits, touch of lactic acidity in the finish.

33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark ruby color with a white head. Aroma is very sour, backed-up by caramel, cherries and wood. Very very sour, moderately sweet. Medium body.

Zlotta (3285) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2017
0.33 l bottle from former ’Firma Bier’, best before September 2017, cellared for two years. Clear, deep red with a thin, frothy, almost stable, off-white head. Slightly sweetish, moderately sourish, rather fruity aroma of sour cherries, caramel, red grapes, massive oak and balsamic vinegar. Slightly sweetish, quite sour, fruity and quite woody taste of lots of oak, caramel, balsamic vinegar, sour cherries, red grapes and some bitter almond, followed by a medium long, rather tart, very woody-dry and vinous finish. Medium body, moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Rather intense and complex, but also refreshing and tasty Flemish Red. Quite vinegary, but not out of balance, overall a delicious beer.

Allinrannassa 7/2017. Quite intense beer, lots of red, sour berries. Balanced and enjoyable.

elbernays (1509) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2017
Bottle from Saveur beer. Pours cherry red with little to no head. Aroma is berries, cherry, earthy wood background. Flavour is is dry tart green grape skin sour with a cherry fruit background. Lovely rounded tart finish. Lasting dry white wine finish. Lovely beer.

Piana średnio obfita, szybko opada do chmurki. Barwa rubinowo czerwona, klarowna. W aromacie sporo tanin w typie starej beczki, wytrawnego ciemnego wina, do tego czerwone owoce, ocet balsamiczny, lekka wanilia... W smaku intensywnie kwaśne, lekko cierpkie, lekko słodkie, jest czerwone wino, ocet jabłkowy, wiśnie, porzeczki, ciemne winogrono, drewno, wanilia. Przy tym jest dość gładkie, aksamitne w odczuciu, z niskim do średniego, drobnym wysyceniem.
Fajnie ułożone i bogate piwo, dla mnie lepsze od chociażby ikony stylu - Duchesse De Bourgogne.

BitchPls (808) - FINLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Dark brown beer with a huge beige foam. Sour and sweet berry/cherry aroma. Balanced sourness, cherries in the flavor. Quite tasty and not overwhelming.

Msdrbeat (780) - East Lansing, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Hopped and light. Bottled at dusty's. Crisp mouthfeel that doesn't linger too long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
