Pours a brilliant ruby, with thin off-white head; settles to a thin ring. Smell: nectarine, cooked apple, hay note, vinous, vanilla. Taste: granny smith, sweet cherry, cranberry; acetic, mild graininess, herbal and vanilla notes. Medium-plus bodied, low but creamy carbonation creeps in, finishing sweet, drying, and oaky.

330ml bottle served in a snifter.

A: Pours a magnificent amber color forming a small yellow head with low retention and only spotty yellow and bit molasses lacings in the glass

S: Grapes! Vinegar, toffee, caramel malts, cherries, oak, more grapes, flowery hops...

T: Sour and slightly sweet upfront. Becomes quickly, dry, acid and funky. Strong notes of grapes, toffee, caramel malts, cherries, oak. Reminds a Cabernet Sauvignon wine, and I'm serious! Metallic and a bit earthy end

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Lingering in the tongue. Very sour and fruity aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent Flanders Red Ale...

Sorry! I know I'm going against the rating rules but sour beers aren't the greatest brewed beers... It can be a bios opinion but I don't like them, especially when they're rated in the top 250. That being said maybe I'll appreciate a sour beer at some point but as of now I do appreciate the brewing and creation and idea of them.

Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge, a barrel aged Flemish Red sour ale. 5.5% ABV.

A: Deep, plum red. Nice clarity. No apparent sediment. A half a finger's slightly lopsided head. Fades quickly to nearly nothing. Almost no lacing.

S: Right away, tons of Morello cherry. Slight red wine. Decent sourness. Very nice. I'm not getting a lot of smells, but my nose is a little stuffy, all of the sudden...

T/MF: Oh, yeah! More of that Morello cherry! Even more sourness; near Sour Patch levels. Tartaric acid galore. Green apple. Slight fruit tannin, on the back end. Just, an awesome Flemish Red!

Poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

Edit: Haha! Turned my older sister onto it!
