Sampled on tap at the Hay Merchant, Houston TX; April 2012
The beer arrives from the tap topped by a creamy, amber tinged, tan colored, one-finger thick head. The beer is a concentrated amber color. The nose smells primarily of lactic acidity, with a backdrop of fruity notes that hint at cherries. There is a touch of oxidized malt richness here as well some caramelized malt aromatics.

The flavor is definitely tart, even leaning towards sour. It is quite dry up front, but does pick up some sweetness and even an acetic bit as it moves towards the finish. The acidity is predominantly lactic in character, which is good. Other flavors of cherry, some earthiness, maybe a touch of oak and some astringency are noticeable here.

This beer is actually fairly simplistic, it is satisfying and tasty though.

Pours a dark and somewhat still amber color with a decent off white head.

Nose has hints of caramel, apple, red wine, yeast, and oak.

Flavors are similar to the nose. Sweet up front, with hints of red apples, fruity red wine, caramel and malt sweetness. Finish is oaky, with a tart cherry and light lactic sourness. Beer is pretty well balanced, though I with the sourness was kicked up just a bit.

Nice full feel, soft, with good carbontaion.

Nice example of the style, and very easy to drink. Seems like it would be a good gateway beer to the style, because this one is well balanced, and doesn't smack your tongue around with tons of sourness.

Drank from a 11.2 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westborough, MA
Served in a tulip

Deep, dark, crimson-mahogany appearance. The liquid was topped by a bubbly, two-finger, light tan crown that faded to a thin ringlet. Dots of lacing trickled along the glass.

Lots of interesting stuff happening in the nose. Crisp, tart and fruity with subtle strawberry notes. Good dose of funk. Very winey/grapey with a fairly strong oaky presence. A powdery yeastiness was also detectible. Overall, rather dry for the style.

The flavor profile was quite similar to the aroma. Super tart and crisp with strong red wine-like qualities. Heavy barrel character. Touch of sweetness in the center. Sour cherries were apparent. Hints of underripe raspberries and lemon lingered in the sharply acidic finish.

Crisp, lighter bodied and creamy on the palate. The liquid contained a plush, frothy, tongue blanketing effervescence.

Most Flemish sour ales have a moderate amount of sweetness, but this version was exceedingly tart and acidic. Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge reminded me a lot of a fruit-infused American wild ale. While this might not be the most balanced example of the style, it is nevertheless a very tasty and interesting rendition.
