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.

fellebag (1466) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle 11,2 fl oz. Small white soda head disappearing. Fizzy with dark red color. Aroma is tar, fermenting onion and sour mix. Taste is rhubarb, citrus candy and sour mix again.

Bardzo dobre piwo mocno kwaskowate, wisniowo octowe. Lambicj prawie ze. Fermentacja spontaniczne i lezakowanie w drewnie przez 18 miesiecy odcisnelo swoje pietno na smaku tego zacnego trunku. Nie kazdy je odbierze nalezycie i doceni, ale to piwo jest wielkiej klasy. Godny przedstawiciel dzikich czerwonych Ale.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap at Ol Beer in Walnut Creek, Ca. Lots of carbonation in it. Nice on the palate. Get the cherry flavor right up front. Solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Half pour at øL. Aroma is cherries, vanilla, oak and Brett. Flavor matches, but with a much brighter oak and carbonation than Intense Red. Still, I have to say that I like it better. Great beer.

Madirish76 (42) - Whittier, California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Poured from a bottle with almost no head or lacing. Beautiful ruby color. Med to light body with lively carbonation. Lightly tart with notes of oaky tannins and cherry vanilla. Would def drink this again.

DrewFace (967) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours a deep dark reddish brown color with big off white heads. Tart aroma with some dark fruit type character. Flavor is sour, tart, and has a lot of fruity type flavors...cherry mostly and light cranberry type bitterness. One of my favorite "easy to get" sours, hands down.

MarcoDL (4791) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2013
Intense sour beer with a delightful fruity layer and a nice hint of oak. Sticky mouthfeel. Very good.

Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2013
Aroma is barnyardish and kinda funky. I also get some cherries. The flavor has prominent cherries and apples with some slight flavors of chocolate, vanilla and oak. One of the best sours i’ve had!

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear, beautiful very dark red color. Thin khaki head, leaves good spread of lace. Medium body, lightly sticky. Lighter, lightly prickly carbonation. Great dark fruit, cherry, oak, vanilla, woody spicy notes. Good prickly bigger sour taste, creates a light buzzing sensation in the back of my head. Light sweet. Good long sour sticky fruity aftertaste. A fantastic belgian sour red, maybe one of the best I’ve ever had.
