Cuvee des Jacobins is right up there with the bug guys. When I try a Flanders Red Ale I am forced to compare to Duchese de Bourgogne.

With that in mind, this Red Ale offers a slight variation of tartness to the beer with exceptional quality and drinkability.
A - Brownish, mahogany, deep red with light tan head.
S - Not too much funk with dark fruit aroma.
T - Everything you want a Flanders Red Ale to be. Bucket list, try this on tap or at the brewery.
M - Moderate to bigger carbonation, bubbly tart fruity goodness. Coats the tongue.
O - WHen i go to the liquor store and nothing catches my eye I always leave with this 4 pack.

Unfortunately the cooler this was kept in isn’t functioning correctly and the beer is served too warm. For me this is a beer that does need to be at least somewhat chilled. This had a great head and lace. Had a very aromatic, pungent aroma. Cant pick up some of the finer qualities as they’re lost in the acidity that more fully expressed with the warmer temps.
