A - Ruby tints shine through the deep and clear crimson colored beer below it's impressively long-lasting ivory head.
S - Biting acidity brings vinegar-like sour notes that cut through the malty beer's brown sugar undertones and soft earthy oakiness for an inviting sour aroma!
T - Brown sugar sweetness and dark stone fruits lead the charge on the tongue, paving the way for balancing and lasting sharp acidic sourness that holds similarities with vinegar, though certainly not in a bad way. After the sourness subsides, gentle traces of vanilla from the oak emerge, rounding out the beer very nicely.
M - This Rouge's smooth entry leads to effervescent carbonation dancing on the tongue, vying for attention over the sharp acidity and sourness that linger on the tongue.
O - The core of Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge is quite similar to Monk's Café and Duchesse in that it's an amber-based malt profile that offers quite a bit of sweetness and mild dark stone fruit notes but the difference with this beer is that it's sour; like, twice as sour. The other two are more than respectable brews but don't quite offer the sour kick seasoned sour beer fans are looking for; they're the 'training wheel' sours. Cuvée des Jacobins combines the best of both worlds.
