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.

Prufrockstar (2077) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours mahogany / ruby with no head. Aroma is lactic, tart cherries, ripe fruit, a hint of vanilla and ... brown sugar? Shrug, if you say so nose. Big sweet stone fruit taste up front tempered by an even bigger acetic, face-puckering sour. Apples and cherries. Lasting tart finish. Whoa tart. Damn. Full body, slick texture, finely bubbled, prickly carbonation. Overall: excellent, if a bit extreme. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mathieuc (3861) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 Pours a clear amber with a nice offwhite head that leaves some patterns on the glass. Aroma is lacking a bit of refinement with bold lactic and wood notes. Taste is heavily sour and oaky. Flavors of green apple or some other sour fruits show up. It is refreshing with its "over the top" acidity and light bodied. Quite good but not meeting my (seemingly high) expectations,

Edit (2013-08-20): A second bottle was much more appreciated, not sure if it was my palate that was shot or if the bottle itself was problematic. Bumping this to 3.9 from 3.7. It seems a lot more approachable now. Still quite acid but it seems like it is more mellow than bold this time around.

Klar mørk brunrød farge. Smskeer veldig syrlig. Hint av kirsebær, sitron og eple. Veldig syrlig ettersmak som henger en god stund. Kansje i overkant syrlig.

JulienHuxley (5762) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Small bottle. Pours a very pretty deep ruby pour with off white head. Aroma of cherries, a hint of vanilla, light ascetic acid, woody. Taste is sour, fruity, lots of cherry, clean acidity without the muddy fruitiness beers like duchesse have for example. Very clean and refined. Easy drinking and quite tasty.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
0,33 l bottle ordered from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Pours a beautiful clear burgundy brown body, under dense, quikly fading tanned head. Mild vinegar fruity nose. Fresh acidic red berry-accented flavor. Notes of cherries and vanilla. A distinct underlying sweetness. Smooth in the mouth. Light funky acidic-sweet berry finish. Quite sweet, yet a very fresh and highly drinkable Flemish Red.

robinvboyer (4425) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
330ml bottle from the LCBO.clear red pour, with a slightly tinged beige head. Beautiful acidic, funky aroma, with hints of cherry, and oak. the body is great, and the carb is soft. the finish is quite a bit more sour than i expected. some good notes of funk, and a big dose of acidity.Notes of oak, cherry, tart berries round it out. very impressed and surprised.

Nice sour tartness. It has a really crisp and clean taste. This is very enjoyable. Not super funky, just sour & tart.

Pours a deep rich red color with an opaque look to it. Aroma is of cherries and oak alcohol. Taste is sour, with a hint of vanilla and sweet cherries. A sour finish with an easy drinking finish. No distinct aftertaste.
