The beer comes in a rusty brown and dark maroon.
The aroma has overly ripe sweet plums, a big dark candy sugar sweetness, some red wine character, and sour berries.
The flavor explodes on the palate, a rush fruit complexities. Red cherries, black cherries, cranberries, tart raspberries, red grape peel, figs with a strong tartness that engages the back of the throat. It has lots of red wine vinegar sourness balanced with a big fruity and dark sugary candy sweetness. A good amount of oak character and alcohol that hints at red wine.
The finish cleans up quite well with that tartness still lingering on the back of the throat.
A creamy mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation, super refreshing.
Again Cuvee de Jacobin, the complexity of this beer wins it out for, but both are world class.
