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.

Simply amazing from tap. Dark brown with a thin head. The nose is loaded with vegetal/balsamic notes. Medium bodied sour with plenty of tart berry an field greens. Long finish.

Sour and sweet at the same time. Dark cherry flavor and color. Distinct Iambic tartness. On tap at The Blue Nile.

Sweet & sour cherries, S - tart cherries, mild vinegar T- vibrant sweet and sour cherries. Very well balance between the sourness and the sweet fruity cherries. Faint oakiness in there as well. Overall an exceptional beer! I would drink it again!

Pours a deep plum red with a light tan head. Aromas of oaky vanilla, cranberries, cherries, hints of peppery barnyard, and slight acidity. Perfect medium light body, that finishes crisp and blows your taste buds into heavenly oblivion with flavors of: sour cherries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, lots of balanced acidity (lactic and just enough acetic), tons of tannins from the wood, and a bit of barnyard all balanced out by some residual malty sweetness. In my opinion this is the best Flemish Red I’ve ever had and one of my favorite beers. This would be killer with goat cheese, cheesecake, foie gras, or lobster.
