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.

This is a fun Sour Ale! I loved it! Aroma is strong and sweet, with minimal head. Color is deep red and slightly opaque. My first thought about the flavor and palate was that I had just popped a Sour Cherry Warhead into my mouth, thats pretty sour. Good blend of flavor and palate.

Aroma is sour, but full. Pours dark red with almost no head. Palate is robust, can detect the alcohol, and sweet. Ends with a sour punch, making it fun to drink.

rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2012
Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Clear amber/brown beer with a beige head. Vinous fruity aroma, sourish, red berries, grapes, rubber, banana, hop notes, citrus. Sourish fruity flavor, hay, herbal, grapes, rubber, grapefruit, lemongrass, barnyard notes, red berries, woody, peach, sour. Really fresh and lovely to find this complexity in a rather low alcohol beer.

Tap @ Brussels Beer Weekend, 2012. Pours clear amber with a creamy head. Fruit, barnyard, caramel and oak. Lambic like notes. Dry, tart and crisp. Balanced. Lovely!

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Pours red brown with a large light tan head. Smells mildly sour and mildly sweet. Taste is sour with a very subtle sweetness. Medium-bodied with an astringent texture and prickly mouth-carbonation, Bockor Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge finishes with subtle fruit and fair amounts of sourness.

P: Deep brown ruby red with a lacing for a head. A: vanilla, sour apples and funky yeast. T: stone fruits, green apples, cranberries, lemon, pretty sour and tart but not overpowerin. M: full body and dry. A really enjoyable flanders.

Sour, somewhat vinegary, but great flavor. Rouge color. Love this beer. Blah blah blah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear reddish brown colour, slightest white head. Aroma of wood, caramel, fruity, cherry, sour notes, light coffee, red fruits, quite tart. Tart flavour, citrus, acidic, wood, brown sugar, vanilla, red wine and light redcurrant. Finish vanilla, redcurrant, red grapes and citrus.
Nice one!

callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Blood red body, thin pinkish-white head, quickly receded to a thin tight colar. Only a few stray trails of lacing. Nose is full of bold cherries, grape soda, oak and a hint of dark chocolate and lactic notes. Flavor is a bit cleaner with cherries and grape soda taking center stage. Mild sourness complements of a blend of acetic and lactic acids. Mild carbonation. Medium to light bodied. An exceptional value.

This is a great sour. As most sours, this one doesn’t have much head at all. The aroma is very sharp and almost "meaty". A very musky, dark fruit aroma that really hits you but in a good way. The taste is not as sour as some that I’ve had but it is sour enough and is a well balanced beer. Nice one to have just to sip while you are relaxing :)
