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.

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.

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 (804) - 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.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft at Meadhall in Cambridge, MA. Tulip. Pours a deep, almost sparkling red with a pinkish thin head. Aroma is sour cherries, yeasts, oak barrel, and other fruit. Taste is mostly sour, dry cherries with some other fruits coming through as well. You get the oak barrel at the finish. Moderately to heavy tartness and a clean taste all around. Finishes almost dry, but refreshing. Moderate carbonation, light body.

Blood red with little head. Pungent bittery sweet scent consisting of red wine and dried fruit (particularly cherry). Heavy and quite sour, with a mild lingering bitterness and fizz. Cherry flavour certainly present, dried fruit, raisin. Good.
