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.

Smell of fermented hay (silo). Sour berries tickles the nose. Looks georgeous, seetrough reddish brown with a thin white head. Taste is sour cherries mixed with a smooth vanilla flavour. I'm not normally into sour ales, but a friend said you just have to taste them enough times. Turns out he's right, I really enjoy this one :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 At Brussels Beer festival September 2017. On tap. Clear red brown lasting beige head. sour red cherry. Not overly complex but good enough. Touch of red wine vinegar towards end. Good. Like a flemish sour but a bit more sour. Decent. Bit obvious. Grew on me but the sweet is too sweet and the sour too sour.

I hate sour beers. I tried this one trusting the amazing score here. Smells like red wine must. Winegar, wine wort and lemon juice, backed by woody malts. So acid that it burns the throat. Taste is sure complex and egant but really this is done for people who like very acid stuff. This will be my last one, for sure, i can’t drink this.

Nice sour aroma with cherries. Oaky taste, full bodied. Fruity, sour and wood. Palate is very juicy. Refreshing. Very nice aftertaste.

Backlog: stiltypisk flamländsk röd med drag av kola, rödvinsvinäger, körsbär och ekfat.

Ciemno rubinowe piwo o średnie pianie, która pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat kwaśnych wiśni, taki pestek od wiśni nawet, dla mnie bardzo przyjemny. W smaku intensywnie kwaśne, cytrynowe. Goryczka jak to w belgijskim kwachu niska. Ogólnie bardzo fajne piwo o fajnym aromacie i kwaśności powyżej przeciętnej jak dla mnie.

AleRider78 (1383) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
Pours a thin frothy off-white head and has a dark amber appearance. Lacing is pretty weak. Roasted malt and somewhat sour aromas. A little bit of spices. Very sour mouthfeel especially in the finish. Very strong sour/tangy flavours. Lemon and lime are in the mix. Some strong spiced hops in there as well. Excessive carbonation. Medium retention. Not something I would have more than one bottle of, but still pretty good.

Aroma is caramel, overripe cherries, light bread. Taste is sour, but with some hints of fruity sweetness. Nice! Candy notes linger, along with sharp lemon, and some caramel.

From a 11.2 oz bottle aged at least 5 years. Pours copper brown with hardly any head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar, cherries, citrus zest. Modest carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of tart cherries, vinegar, slight lemon, subtle wood. Overall flavorful, refreshing, smooth yet tantalizing and tasty for the style.
