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 from Systembolaget. Spare off-white head and amber-coloured. Aroma is dominated by raspberry, brown sugar, vanilla and vinegar. Palate-feel is lively and chalky.

Lovely ruby red with almost no head. Smells of tart cherries. Tart cherry and vanilla on the front and more darker flavors like cocoa (yeah I read it first and the power of suggestion is strong) at the end. Mild effervescent with a tannin like dry finish.

Flaske fra SB Sälen. Rød/brun, nesten uten skum. Masse kullsyre, aroma av kirsebær, frukt og grape. Smaken er veldig syrlig - eddik og sitrus/grape. Lang, syrlig ettersmak. God!

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Mahogany red with no head. Vinegar, some caramel, vinegar again. Taste is for me way too sour, and sour in the wrong way. It’s sherry vinegar with some input of cognac / cherries.

lopisar (249) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Red brown color with no head. Sour fruity aroma, vinager. Acidic taste with lots of fruit, sweet.

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Draft @ De Klein Duyvil. Cherry red, little white head, no lacing. Aroma is typical sour- vinegary, but also fruity, of cherries. Flavor is much the same. Quite sharp, nicely carbonated, with a lasting soureness that bites the palate. Nicely complex sour. Really good.

ekstedt (6708) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. CLear reddish brown, brief beige head. Fruity red berries aroma with some wood and vinegar. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry with a bit overwhelming acetic acidity.

ansalon (3791) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2014
Pours cloudy burgundy with a large, quickly settling off-white head. Aroma is cherries, tartness, figs, red wine, slight red fruit and vanilla. Taste is sour cherries, red currant, tartness, slight roasted notes, vanilla. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is cherries and slight funk. Very good!

SamTheBarrel (801) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2014
330ml brown bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is clear dark red with a small beige head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of ripe apples, red currants and table grapes. Flavour of green apples, red currants, table grapes, cherries, vinegar and oak wood character. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and heavy sour. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and soft carbonation. Overall a great beer with strong complex flavours, refreshingly light on sweetness and with a striking sourness.

March 10, 2014. 330mL bottle from LCBO. Aroma of sour cherries, grapes, apples. Lovely reddish brown colour. Tart apple and cherry flavour with a touch of sweetness and lingering bitterness. Smooth. Very nice.
