COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark brown/red with medium beige head. Nice sour wine-like aroma. Strong but mild fruity sourness, which stays also in the aftertaste.

Jabic (702) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Ar: Tart pie cherries and wet wood; a bit of juicy fruit and peach skins; tangy, roasted caramels. Ap: Deep amber-red, slightly turbid; small off-white head with low retention, leaves a thin, fine ring. T: Tart cherries, lemon, and roasted caramel; largely clean acidity, which is medium-high; slight vinegar notes, but not unpleasant, adding just a bit of bite; bitterness is low, though there is some tannin structure with a slightly oaky in flavor; strawberries, peach skin, and sour orange juice longer into the finish. P: Light body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Excellent Flanders red ale; bright, firm acidity with just a hint of vinegar; lots of lean, underripe fruit flavor mingles well with the tannin and wood background notes; caramel malts and roast flavors are also nice accents, bolstering the overall beer profile without taking over.

Bottle. Pours dark red with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Nose is of sour dough, funky yeast, red fruit and some caramel. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is very sour, funky, tart, fruity, caramel malt. Finish is long and sour. Too sour for me.

Bill Becker (1807) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 2, 2017
August 12th 2015 bottle. Dark red liquid sitting under an inch of foam. Smells of both sour and sweet cherries. Taste is sour cherries dominant, almost 1 dimensional but what a state to be in. Tastes kinda woody too. Light bodied with ample carbonation. I dig it.

3.6
lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2017
Petite mousse au sommet de ce liquide couleur de sang, ou de thé d’hibiscus. Nez qui promet de l’acidulé, avec des baies et du boisé pour compléter. Une bouche très mince et sèche, dû au sûrette et au fruité (cerises, canneberges, fraises à peine mûres). Une rouge un peu simplette, mais terriblement efficace dans ce qu’elle réussit à faire.

3.9
mrjez (675) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle at BBW, Umeda. Deep ruby red with beige head. Aroma of vinegar, yoghurt lactic notes, plenty of cherry. Dark woody berry flavour, some sweet cherry, tart tannins, light balsamic. A sour front that transitions nicely into sweet with a spritzy feel, finishing somewhat dry. Easy flavourful drinking, just the right sourness level.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2017 Draft at THC. Pours clear burgundy with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like tart lemon, dark fruits, red wine, slight vinegar, and yeast. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like red wine, vinegar, dark fruits, and yeast.
