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.

Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2013
11.2 oz bottle- Pours autumn amber to ruby red with a crackly white head that reduces immediately leaving almost nothing. The aroma is tart cherries and plums, a fair amount of funk, graham crackers. The taste is much more tart than I was expecting, mouth puckering, cherry, plums, wood, I wouldn’t have gotten the cocoa if not for the description above, but maybe subtle dry cocoa powder. Body is medium and carbonation is medium high. Nice beer.

WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours brownish-burgundy. Nose is tart cherry, rhubarb, red wine vinegar. Flavour is more of the same with woody, vinous, prickly. Finish is relatively dry but the sourness lingers longer than Rodenbach Grand Cru (my favourite). An intense sour, my friend hated it but what does she know I’ve never once seen her drink vinaigrette from the bottle.

-Jasså du vill ha något surt? säger bartendern på Moeder Lambic. Då ska du testa den här. SUUURT!!!!! Ättika och ciron. Balsamico och lite kola. Brutalt sur. Skrynklar ihop hela nyllet på ren reflex. Man kan skada sig.

Hint of cherry, rose, roasted smell, beautiful residish, brown color, that sour, yeasty, tangy taste, with a great after-swallow sour then bitter taste is perfect. Not enought ABV at 5.5%, I think more ABV would give it a hint of sweetness it is missing.

4.6
Pyrmir (6196) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 330 ml bottle. Copper color with off white head. Aroma fruit, light tanginess, malt and slight acidity. Taste is sour, lemon, lime, vinegar and sour fruit. Fantastic acidity!

Smells sour and fruity. Nice reddish color with little or no head. Extremely sour, almost overpowering. Flavors definitely linger for awhile. Too sour for me.
