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.

Excellent fruity aroma, and while the colour was highly appealing I wanted a bit more head. Flavour was quite tart and multifaceted. I sipped too slowly though, and did not enjoy the beer as much once it got near room temperature.

Bottle 33 cl.
Brown with a small tan head. Sour, with notes of dried fruit, cherry and even candy. Fizzy to the mouth, a bit on the thin side for my liking. More sour, medium sweetness, and acidic. Lingering taste.

Bottle. Clear dark ruby with an off white head. Aroma is sour cherry, musty funk and vinous. Taste follows suit and adds some vinegar notes. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Really coats the mouth. Very good.

Best sour I've ever had, and I've had all of RRBC sours as well as many many others.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 1, 2014
P: Dark ruby cola appearance with a thin layer of micro bubble off white head. Small amount if active bubbles floating to the top. S: Tart lemon zest, stone fruit, vanilla oak, and bing cherries. Dry powdery yeast and a faint aroma of dried slobber like after you wake up and realized you slobbers on the pillow. T/M: Super tart lemon zest, apples, oak and vanilla. Hoppy stone fruit, white grapes and bitter apple peels. Light-medium sharp body and super aggressive carbonation thar really brings out the tartness. A puckering finish lingering apple peels and floral notes. O: Wow! This is by far the best Flanders red I have drank. Super sour yet underlined fruit notes that bring this all together quite nicely. Hops and yeast really makes this better than an average Flanders that is just straight sour. Get this when you can. Cheers!

Thin disappearing beige head over deep dark clear red-brown beer. Pronounced aroma of sour cherry, mature red fruit and sweet spices, the sourness hinted. Lively carbonation with a medium minus bodied palate hits dry and wonderfully acidic and sour, underripe berry with a faint sweet fruit and sweet exotic spice developing by the midpalate into the long finish. Extremely refreshing and moreish.

WillRunForBeer (2652) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Tap at Grill Next Door. Pours amber brown with a nearly white head. Smells of dried cherries, candied sugar. Taste has a sharp lemon acidity that carries all the way from the moment it touches the tongue until well after the swallow. In the middle are dark cherries, caramel, a hint of cocoa. This is delicious!
