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.

Draft at capones..red crimson hue..nose is quite nice..hints of apples..dried fruits.cider..mouthfeel is spot on..funky acidic notes shine through with a sour finish indeed....quite enjoyable and glad to have had this after my palate was literally set ablaze by habanero wtf sculpin...this was quite complex indeed..

On tap at Stone World. Pours cherry red, translucent, with a small head, no lacing--looks nice. It smells tart, various fermenting fruit aromas, complex. It has a light body with medium carbonation, no hops or alcohol present in the taste--it tastes a lot like "sweet tarts" candy, and raspberries. I’m coming around to this style, this is a very nice selection.

Aroma is of vinous cherry. Cherry might slightly dominate the sour smell, but still great. Very sour taste, but cherry and oaky/woody fruit flavors balance very well, not as pucker sour as say la folie. Lower carbonation, but not too noticeable. Everything just works well with this beer. Near perfect, and a must for sour lovers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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 !

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.

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.
