Reviewed from notes. Poured from bottle into Peg's snifter.

A: Dark red to reddish brown in color. Forms a small white head, and the beer is essentially translucent.

S: Funky – vinegar, tart cherries, sweet/sour, some barnyard. Pineapple and/or tropical fruit aromas show up as it warms a little. The aroma is almost puckering.

T: Follows the nose very well, including the appearance of pineapple overtones when it isn't quite refrigerator cold. It has a relatively dry finish.

M: Lighter side for the mouthfeel with a high amount of carbonation but not overdone.

O: A good, really good Flanders red. Not my personal favorite, perhaps, but I wouldn't pass another one up.

Cuvée des Jacobins. Notched with an '01' on the back label. Poured into a Duchesse de Bourgogne goblet and enjoyed side-by-side with The Lost Abbey Red Poppy Ale.

Murky brown off the pour with a third of an inch of bone-colored head. Red-orange hues are seen through bright light. Bubbles sporadically popping on the surface with a foam glaze lingering. Organic shapes of lace splotch on one side of the glass.

Strong acetic character in the nose. Balsamic notes that writhe amongst mellow vanilla, tart cherry sweetness, and some phenolic characters. Soft, vinous, and almost buttery. Exceptional.

Balanced between tart and sweet and woody. This beer is dripping with a juicy vinegar note that is so fruity and appealing. Tart cherries impart a little bit more sourness and some fleshy sweet tones reminiscent of apple and quince. Then, there's an oaky bitterness in the middle-to-finish that melts into flashes of vanilla and spicy alcohol.

Medium body and sparkling with spritz. Lively feeling. Any more heft to the body would have been appreciated over here.

A different league of beer altogether here. Vast complexities, yet all of the usual tasty delights to get fixated on are right there and upfront for you to savor. A model Flanders Red, without question. A rival to my Duchesse and Rodenbach Grand Cru. Will buy up as many as I can.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.

The beer is orange to copper in color with 1/2" of off white head.

The aroma offers cherry pie, cherries, pie crust, oak, vanilla, stone fruits. It also smells musty, in a positive way.

The flavor is a mixture of sweet and sour cherries. Yum. Why have I not tried this before?!? Additional notes of vanilla and a bready, pie crust. Delicious beer.

The feel is acetic and sour, but not overly so. A touch of vinegar in the finish.

Overall, this is a beer I would like to have a case of in the cellar, so I could pull one out and enjoy every now and then.

Pours a brownish red with a tannish white head. Swirling the beer reveals thick wine like legs along the wall of the glass. There is little to no lacing.

nose consists of sweet cherries and hints of raspberry and cocoa.

Many of the aromas are found as well as some pear, grape, apple and date in the taste. There is a prominent sourness that doesn't seem too overbearing.

Good stuff.
