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.

Possibly too sour... But interesting. Might be great with a corned beef sandwich with lots of sour kraut and mustard...

Berra (40) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Underbart vacker färg i lite rödskimrande. Smak av ahlgrens sura bilar eller något annat surt snask.

Clear deep red colour, small foamy tan head. Aroma has cherries, yeast, vanilla. Really strong, sour taste with slightly dry finish. Light body, low carbonation, a bit watery mouthfeel. Very flavourful, pretty good sour.

dysenteri (284) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle from SB. Somewhere between red and brown color, with white head. Aroma: oak, grapes, kinda funky, cocktail cherries, dried cherry. Tarty and very dry taste, sourness. Lingers in the aftertaste a long time. Low carbonation, medium body. In all a very good flanders red, one of the best and very affordable.

rostetti (346) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours dark, ruby beer with a bit tan medium head. Aroma and taste are sour fruity, cherries and apple, and it is very tart. I have had better sour beers, but not bad one.
