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.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Härligt välbalanserad. Angenäm doft och munkänslan ger en riktig fin känsla. Grymt syrlig och farligt lättdrucken.

Very bubbly, with red color and very short head. Actually smells and tastes like basque cider. Not sure at all that I like this. It is like mixing wine and beer, not my stuff and hard to objectively rate.

@ Ölprovning på Havregatan 7 mars 2014. Fruktig, körsbär, torr, alldeles för syrlig, vinäger.

Kr1zz (402) - BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2014
This roodbruin beer has aromas of lactic acid and fruit (cherries or krieken) with a touch of wood. It is a complex, well-balanced sour beer with an after-taste of vanilla and red fruits.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Nice looking brew. Dark copper to light brown. Whispy off white head. Sips moderately lively. Chocolate, big sour cherry which moves towards ginger in the aftertaste. Low abv makes this brew very easy to drink. Mostly dry and parching like palate with low levels of sweetness. Great brew, but for 10 bucks a glass I’d prefer a little higher abv.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Copper colour, small head. Oaky vinegary nose. Mid sweet with distinct acidity with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Vinegar, some cherry and wood. Low bitterness.

Pours a dark redish brown with a medium head. A sour aroma with a fresh and fruity taste. One of the best sour ales I've tasted :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
