Notes / Commercial Description:
Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge is a Flemish Sour Ale, red in color with a beguiling balance of malty sweetness and acidic sharpness. It is made from spontaneously fermented and barrel-aged beer of at least 18 months in age. The beer is cooled overnight in a large, shallow metal vessel called a coolship and then fermented and aged in large oak foudres which are made in France and assembled on-site at Bockor.

Beautiful Flanders Red with mild sweet notes. Solid pucker on the front end with mild tannins and some sugars on the back end. Mouth feel was slightly thinner than expected but barely noticeable.

Pours a dark reddish brown body with a fluffy soap bubble like head which dissipated down to a thin amount on the surface.

Aromas of sour cherries and a touch of vinegar on the back.

Super tart, almost sucks your cheeks in it's so tart and sour!

Great amount of carbonation to off-set that sourness

Overall, a great sour beer! It sure is a sipper and not one to chug down indiscriminately; must be savored.

On tap the the Republic in Minneapolis.

Deep red-brown body; clear with a thin head that soon reduced to a ring.

I had a typical reaction to this in that the aroma was a bit unappealing but the flavor was good However, in this case the aroma was nearly neutral (but too much 'vinegar') and the flavor was very good. Nicely tart and moderately fruity,

O: Excellent for style.
