Heard this was a darned good sour... so I had to pick up a bottle when I saw one at Lone Star. Glad I did, this is good stuff! Served in a Ommegang chalice because all of my other beer glasses are dirty.

Pours with a deep ruby body that is slightly tainted by a dirty, dark brown. Forms a light tan head that has nice bubble sizing, but doesn't last long. Decent enough, but not spectacular.

This beer is fantastically well rounded. Nothing knocks me over the head, but I really like every bit of it. The tartness is sharp, but not huge. The main flavor is a real cherry that plays well with that medium tartness. There's an oak bite and a bit of vanilla in the sip. Occasionally, I get a sweet apple bite at the end of the sip. There's also a slight hint of balsamic vinegar in the background, but it only comes forth when I want to find it. Perfect vinegar depth. All of the flavor facets come wrapped in a very well weighted fluid package.

This bottle was a bit pricey, but I'd definitely go back to it again. The Jacobins is not as bold as a La Folie, but the flavors are much more balanced and subtle. Very solid beer.
