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.

Light vanilla and fruit aromas. It pours an opaque deep red color with no head. The flavor is very tart with moderate sweetness on the finish; like a sour cherry with a hint of vanilla. The body is medium, mostly still and leaves some lingering acidity on the tongue. Very good, very sour and very complex flavor

BeerGolem (815) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle 330 ml. Wow, that certainly is a sour one! Pours very dark red (almost brown), with small off white head, quickly disappearing. Aroma is of cherries and some balsamics. Amaing (and a little overwhelming) sourness, along with a touch of sweetness. Explosive.

Draught @ Rattle & Hum, NYC. Pours clear ruby with small off-white head. Clear vinous aroma with notes of citrus and grass. Vinous flavour with lambiclike notes. Sour aftertaste. A really good sour ale!

berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle (33cl). Lovely deep rusty red colour. Small off-white soft head, settles as a stable ring, no lacing. Sour-sweet aroma with cherry fruit and crushed kernels, aged vinegar, blackcurrant. Medium body, modest/flat carbonation. Rich, sweet/tart/vinegary taste, amazingly well-balanced. Mild vinegar burn (pleasant!) in the finish.

Mtbiker54 (39) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 3, 2013
Une belle couleur ambrée avec des reflets rouges. En bouche une acidité maîtrisée accompagnée d’un fruité assez rond. Toujours en bouche un côté vineux présent assez longtemps.
