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.

Pours with very little foam. Color is dirty, mead like. Aroma is fruity and sour and has some alcohol and yeast also. Hard to pick aromas, but the aroma is okay. It reminds of some hard liquour or aperetif. Palate is dryish and a bit watery. Taste is sour and has a pronounced "lactic acid" overall taste. There’s also a clear "bitter ale" component to the taste, so it tastes somewhat like a mix of sour beer and bitter ale. The taste is mainly just sour and the overall taste reminds of a tanninic red wine that has some water added to it. Generally it tastes like a typical sour beer does. The sourness is quite controlled and elegant even though. It’s a well made sour beer. It’s perhaps a bit boring in the taste complexity. The etiquette is surprisingly descriptive of the feeling of this beer. Because it feels like and uncomplicated enough, but still elegant enough to be enjoyed by that kind of engineer-looking guy after work day. This is not your ordinary "market beer", but it’s not too complicated in order to serve "any day" drinking.

vincentvega72 (617) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2017
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.

Very citrusy aroma, orange and candied, woody, deep golden with a good white head, light/medium body, very fizzy, again citrus and woody notes, quite bitter final...not my favorite sour but good.

Maakun (4947) - 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 (173) - 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.

Hints of white wine, rowanberries at first. Acidic notes notes of berries. Sourness. Notes of berries and slight sweetness in the aftertaste. Rather light bodied, quite complex, rather low carbonated sour ale.
