COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cuvee Jeune Homme is an oak-aged bitter beer. Originally it had a slight citrus-bitterness due to its 4 hops and the subsequent dry hopping. It is acidified while it ripens for 4 months in oak wine casks. The daring bitter-sour combination is moderated by this ripening process and as a consequence it is a very pleasant drinking beer.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, sugar, hops, yeast. Re-fermented in bottle.

Donkerblond/licht oranje bier met witte schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Vineus aroma, houterig, steenvrucht. Zurige aanzet die ietwat overvloeit in een romig mondgevoel. Perzik, nectarine, eik, gist. Fruitige afdronk met een héél klein bittertje. Misschien niet de lekkerste van De Leite maar nog altijd bovengemiddeld goed.

Maakun (4811) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2017
Bottle at home. Hazy dark golden with small off white head. White grapes, strong cereal, cornflakes, apricots, overripe red fruits, light white wine vinegar. Medium sour and sweet and light bitter at first but it gets a bit stronger in the finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and light chemical finish. It’s a bit rough at first, like a foederbier but cleans up fast and is quite nice actually.

SylvainCFC (156) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2017
Robe blonde moyennement foncée, limpide, très légèrement voilée. Col de mousse blanc court de bonne tenue. Aérée, légère. Nez sûr, vinaigre, boisé, moyennement sucré. Touche d’une salaison. Bouche sur l’acidité mais bien balancé par une douceur maltée. Légère note d’agrume. Touche boisée claire et biais "salé" (saucisson, salaison, surprenant). Texture huileuse, onctueuse, corpulence moyenne à épaisse. Carbonatation faible. Complexe, mais buvable. Maturation en fût très claire, très boisée. Etonnante.

Bottle @ home. Ambrata carica, opalescente, con schiuma bianca fine ed abbastanza persistente, Aroma vinoso, legno, vaniglia, erbaceo da luppolo, brett. Gusto decisamente acido all’ingresso, citrico, vinoso, fruttato, uva acerba, erbaceo da luppolo, piuttosto amaro il finale. Non molto corposa, nè particolarmente calda. carbonatazione intesa, astringente, particolarmente spigolosa. equilibrata ed armonica
