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.

GregClow (3322) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Rusty red-brown body with a small and quickly descending head. Flavour and aroma both have big notes of sour cherry and balsamic vinegar, with supporting oakiness and a hint of sweet vanilla. Crisp body, and a long, dry, tart and refreshing finish. A stellar sour!

Pours a deep burgundy. Sour red wine vinegar and cherries, along with oaky notes too. Similar flavours. Nice and sour. Very good.

kevinsenn (2113) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours crystal-clear rusty brown with a thin tan head. Pleasant sour cherry and caramalt aroma. Sour/tart flavours hit the tongue immediately, giving way to subtle fruity notes and a super-clean finish. Big body, silky smooth. Great.

Bouteille de 330ml. Bière brune-rouge avec un filet de mousse. Au nez des effluves de bois, foudres, fruits rouges et d’acide. La bouche est suret comme on l’aime, boisée, elle fait saliver. Finale suret-aigre, fruitée. à consommer avant 06-02-2015. Vive les Jacobins !

rejtable (2410) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Really nice! Pours dark amber with limited head and some lacing. Nose is sour and some fruit. Notes of sour candy, some fruit. Tastes medium tart and very light sweet. Lightish body with lively carbonation.

sudomorph (1119) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours a dark ruby with a very thin head that fades to nearly nothing. Smells sour with fruits. Taste is fruity and sour with a dry finish. Very bubbly carbonation. I’m sure it is very true to the style but I’m not a fan of the sour.

Maybe it’s because I haven’t been able to get any Flemish Sour Ale here in years, but jeez - I love this brew. Beautiful deep red with a moth watering fruity sour aroma. taste is aggressively sour with a nice lingering tang that doesn’t overpower. Fantastic!

This was an interesting experience since I didn’t know anything about the Flemish sour ale. Most likely an acquired taste.

Pours a deep raisin colour, with minimal head. The aroma notes include fig, sour apple, toasty malts, and raisins. The tasting notes include sweet fruity sour, blended with a complex mix of fig, toasty malts, and has almost a Sherry character to it. Excellent! My favorite Lambic to date!
