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.

SHHHHHHHH! Please keep this one a secret. Much like Petrus Pale this beer is highly under rated! Smells of old gym sock. Tastes like rainbow effervescence, this one is the real deal. Seriously, the wife loves it, and I do to. Consider this a gateway to the sour world!

great savory sour, berry, cherry character up front with nice yeast flavors and complexity. I also got wood and tobacco . Tartness continues with a more savory tomato character. Finishes clean with a similar aftertaste.

Pours a clear brick colour with a thin off white head. The aroma is heavy on the sour cherry, oak desk drawer, alcohol, very tart. The flavour is very tart aswell, astringent almost, sour green apple, sour cherry, vinegar, oak. The carbonation is lively, dry mouthfeel. I keep trying to get into sours, but I really struggle to find the appeal for me.

On draft at The Sierra Grille. Poured a reddish brown into a stemmed glass. Excellent sour with notes of cherry and oak. Not too sour, not too sweet.

DAA; Pours clear reddish brown with a fast deminishing off-white head. Aroma is sour, malty, dried fruity, vanilla and alcohol. Flavour mirrors, adding sour, cherry and caramell. Body is medium, texture is oily and the carbonation is soft to avarage. Yes, its a complex, beautiful sour beer with a lasting sour, fruity finish.

0.33 bottle, 5.5%. Dark brown ale color, filtered. Smell of cherries. Fruity taste with a hint of oak in the finish. Bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fruity smell. Colour like a dark red wine, fresh, white foam. Wow! Taken by storm. An incredible fruity taste comes over me. Lemon, lime, orange. Mayne something sweet. Mild bitterness, medium sweetness, extremly sour. Good to share ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft - Vintage 2010 - Red sour grape, little cherry and some oak. Clear mahogany with a thin beige head. Sour grape me oak, but there is something missing which a in the smell. Just a bit flat and boring. Still good, just not the WOW I was hoping for.
