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.

Mesjasz (1440) - Lodz, POLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Aromat winny, owocowy, lekko octowy z kwasem mlekowym. Smak średnio kwaśny, cierpki, mocno limonkowy, z muśnięciem octu winnego. Dalej mamy młody agrest, skórkę z cytryny. Posmak krótki, cierpki i cytrynowy.

Excalibur123 (453) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 1, 2016
Presenta marrón claro, bastante trasparente con media corona de espuma, perdurando una fina capa hasta el final, aromas a vinagre, fruta madura, manzanas ácidas y frutos rojos; en boca entrada suave, refrescante, empieza muy ácida con largo retrogusto, sigue punzante pero invita al siguiente trago, cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación, buen ejemplo de estilo.

sulawang (1143) - - OCT 23, 2016
Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a smallish head, thick ringed retention, clusters of active micro streams.

Nose: acidic sour woody, pukey cherry-prune (lvl-8)-pungency

Attack: immediate puckery sour, light crisp

Mid-palate: brown sugar , sour cherry, soft pukey-woody, red wine vinegar bright acidic

Finish: apple exhale, residual acidity, acidic woody sour dry

Summary: Drinks better at cellar temp, though I’m not getting all advertised flavours such as the stone fruit and cocoa. Plenty of acidic sourness but lacking in standout aromatic flavours or punchy depth.

JaTuJa (20) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Ar: Notes of cherry, red berries, oak, sour and little bit of vanilla. Very nice! Ap: reddis-brown with good head that last very long T: similar to aroma. Plus Some sweetnes. Sour charecter is strong and goes well with sweetnes. Aftertaste is long and has very nice "bite" O: World-class sour ale. Very complex and strong :)

Bottle in Mort Subite in Altrincham. Ruby with a cream head. Fruity vinous aroma. The taste has tart red wine and cherry notes with oak and sherbet spice. Refreshing and complex. Outstanding.

Bozo_skeleton (1135) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 11, 2016
Robe ruby, peu de carbo, collet moyen fuyant lentement. Aromes bien marqués sur les fruits rouges aigres (cerises), bois vert. L’acidite se ressent dès l’attaque bien sur avec en prime les notes boisés, mais se poursuit jusqu’a une finale bien longue sur les cerises ameres. Ni trop ni trop peu, un juste equilibre qui fait la difference et qui remporte un vif succes. Un regal pour amateur de Sour Red

Tap into a snifter showing opaque caramel crimson with sparse white foam. The nose is slightly vinous, showing a slight herbal medicinal edge. The palate is light bodied and fully carbonated. Moderately tart with a mix of caramel malts, light cocoa, and bing cherries. Flavors are not very rhythmic or put together; it’s slightly messy but flavors do compliment each other.
