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.

Bottle from Bois Cereste in Akasaka. Dark mahogany pour. Some lace. Smells of burnt soy sauce, minerals, apple, strawberry and cherry. Sour from start to finish. Taste is cherry juice, caramel, floral with grassy notes. Still puckeringly sour.

azzurro (154) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2017
My 3rd sour ale after the Rodenbachs. Truly taste the apple side of it and I like the ’Low’ % of alcohol which is not too pronounced.

Freaky_tiki (1186) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep purple (!) in the glass. This is a beautiful, mouth puckering sour, like a thick & rich sour candy (minus the sugar). Tastes of balsamic vinegar mixed with unsweetened grape kool-aid & sour cherry juice. Really. Decent member of the sour canon.

Couleur rouge-brunâtre foncé, mince mousse. Arômes de bois fruits rouge, notes acides, En bouche, un beau mélange de boisé, cerises sûres et une acidité prononcée. Très bonne.

it has quality and should gain respect, but tastes too much sour even for a sour ale.

Tart fruit (cherries?). Hard candy. Dark garnet. Lots of effervescence. Light tan quickly fading head. Very dry. Very tart. Pretty sure it's cherries. Medium bodied. Lingering sour finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
