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.

Bottle in Mort Subite in Altrincham. Ruby with a cream head. Fruity vinous aroma. The taste has tart red wine and cherry notes with oak and sherbet spice. Refreshing and complex. Outstanding.

Bozo_skeleton (1072) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 11, 2016
Robe ruby, peu de carbo, collet moyen fuyant lentement. Aromes bien marqués sur les fruits rouges aigres (cerises), bois vert. L’acidite se ressent dès l’attaque bien sur avec en prime les notes boisés, mais se poursuit jusqu’a une finale bien longue sur les cerises ameres. Ni trop ni trop peu, un juste equilibre qui fait la difference et qui remporte un vif succes. Un regal pour amateur de Sour Red

Tap into a snifter showing opaque caramel crimson with sparse white foam. The nose is slightly vinous, showing a slight herbal medicinal edge. The palate is light bodied and fully carbonated. Moderately tart with a mix of caramel malts, light cocoa, and bing cherries. Flavors are not very rhythmic or put together; it’s slightly messy but flavors do compliment each other.

Pours a mahogany color with a tan head. Aroma is of tart with dark fruits, candied sugar, caramel malts, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is similar with the tartness on the finish.

SkillsFactory (631) - ITALY - SEP 18, 2016
33 cl. best before 10/08/18, aperta il 18/09/16. Rosso antico, limpida con riflessi dorati, schiuma tra l’ocra ed il beige fine ma non molto persistente che forma un anello in superficie lungo la parete del bicchiere, da manuale rispetto alla tipologia di appartenenza. Aroma di aceto di mele, legno (Foeder), un accenno di cannella, mela verde, fichi secchi, ciliegia disidratata, lievemente citrica ed oleosa. In bocca attacca acidula, sempre aceto di mele, successivamente note speziate, limone con una punta di noce moscata, uva fragola ed uva passa, fichi secchi, leggera albicocca, legno; quest’ultimo rimane presente con delicatezza anche sul finale insieme ad una lieve astringenza che incorda la mela verde lasciando la bocca quasi neutra. Mediamente carbonata, corpo medio, bevuta di una pulizia esemplare.
