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.

Must try this one again. I loved it but it's probably not approachable for most people. Pronounced sourness. The most sour of the sours I have had yet. Almost vinegar like. But I quite liked it. I will need to drink it a few times to dig into its complexity. The sourness is the overpowering attribute and that makes it hard to put your finger on this more subtle attributes. I've had it a number of times now and still quite like it. The sourness it's not as strikingly pronounced after you've had it a few times. Noticed notes of sour apple and cherries this time. ---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.

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.
