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.

BeerSkull (1372) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
(Bottle). Clearly tangy scent with a not entirely pleasant aroma of citrus and toilet cleaners. The taste is fresh and tangy with flavors of fruit, cherries, barrel aging and citrus. Not really a beer in my taste but even I’m impressed. A really good and nice beer in its style.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear, dark red-brown with a short head and minimal lace. Aroma is cherry and light oak. Has an unpleasant earthy vomit-like funk. Lets call that cheese. Very tart cherry skin attack with sticky-oily palate and a sour finish that goes and goes.

MrBeerFanatic (1069) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
Rated Easter at apt Buffalo ny (Marys first easter). Pours a deep red with a foamy head. Aromas of sour cherry, candy apple, cask imperssions, light fruitiness and some tartness. Flavors highly sour with smooth barrel cognac impressions, and green candied apple. Flavors follow with a big tartness. What a journey this beer has been through during those 18+ months. Don’t find to much sweetness but a crisp tartness that fades quickly in the finish. The dark cherries show through differently in the nose than the palate but are the dominant flavor and aroma besides the tart sour. Well done attractive looking brew.

bursprak (3285) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 20, 2014
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a clear amber fluid with some head that quickly fades away. Lots of red berries, some vanilla and balsamico on the nose. Taste is nicely balanced, not overly acidic like some other sour reds. I get cherries, almonds, vanilla and some earthy leathery notes. Very enjoyable.

Pours mahogany with low disappearing off white head Aromas of raspberries, cherries, caramel malts, hints of bicarbonate Very nice taste full of red fruits, citrus, sour yeast

ryanfolty (2611) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2014
April 16, 2014 - on tap at Hollander. Clear reddish brown pour with some head. Aroma was fruity, sweet and a bit sour. Taste was consistent with aroma, but a bit heavier on the sour. Smooth and easy drink.

Bottle. Clear red amber beer with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is spicy with notes of acidic pears, apples, cherries and woody vanilla. Flavor is fruity with notes of cherries, vanilla, wood and leather. Really great.

maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish dark brown color with a small off white head on it. Nose is definitely sour with a little malt and oak peaking through to complement the sourness. Taste is very sour, but has a few hints of sweetness throughout. Very pleasant drink.
