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.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 poured from draft and poured a nice dark red color with a small head. excellent aromatics with some funk, sour apples, cherries and spices. Nice depth as well with a good tart quality too. medium/full bodied with a nice acidic bite to it. Very good feel as well. This is a real quality sour and gives just the right amount of sourness.

[Notes from July 2016] Draught. Pours reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, and wood. Taste is very sour with cherries, oak, some vinegar, and a little vanilla. Dry finish. Medium+ body. Medium carbonation. Complex.

Gravöl. SB Lund, flaska. Fin laceing. Mörrödbrun komplex arom. Bra till blåbär. Skålade för svärmor Astrid. 102 år begravdes idag. Skulle smakat men inte bett om mer. Och bra till schinken.

nihtila (3157) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle from Beerhive. Pours dark reddish brown. Nose is rich and sour, oak, dried fruits. Taste is very sour and tart, dried cherries, oak, light vanilla, dried fruits, balsamic vinegar. If you like your Flemish sour really sour, you will like this.

sonofian (13) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Just wonderful. Red oak sourness countered with just enough sweet vanilla as to make it eminently drinkable. Huge mouthfeel in the mouthful. Purple behind the eyes, velvet cushions. Saliva sucking tartness with full-bodied complexity. Gorgeous.

Franckg (1386) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Bouteille datée du 02/09/2015, bue après 16 mois. Robe rougeâtre légèrement trouble avec un petit cerne de mousse. Arômes de petits fruits des champs sucrés, cerise mure à point, pomme enrobée de caramel, léger balsamique, jeune prune, tarte aux bleuets. En bouche, cerises noires et rouges se côtoient accompagnées d’une touche acétique bien dosée, quelques autres petits fruits, citron, bois. Finale qui laisse ressortir des saveurs de confiture de bleuets et mûres et de liqueur de cerise. Pas trop acide et bien fruité. Texture huileuse, un peu juteuse, corps mince à moyen. Très belle Rouge des Flandres.

Vivbeer (4) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2016 does not count
Bière vineuse brune et sure vieillie en fût - so flamande! Sur base d’un lambiek (fermentation spontanée) et bien surette, le goût bascule ensuite sur des arômes plus fruitées de cerise pour se terminer vers des goûts plus doux. Particulièrement bien équilibrée, c’est une tuerie.

thepatrickman (1062) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Reddish brown that just looks perfect. More sour than I was expecting, combined with a dry body and a light flavor profile. Really good, although I would have loved a little more flavor beyond the tartness.

Great fruity IPA. A lot of tropical and citrus fruitiness, nice hoppy character. Both taste and the aroma are full of hoppy fruitiness. Medium body, medium carbonation. This one is a 100% to be repeated.
