Cuvee des Jacobins Belgian Flemish Sour Red Ale

Pours a deep ruby red color. Light bodied and very refreshing. Very pleasant, pronounced sourness, with notes of earthy wood, cherries, cocoa, and a hint of vanilla.

Craft brewed by a boutique brewery in the Flanders region of Belgium, using spontaneous fermentation.

Aged for 18 months in oak barrels.

Available in bottles and on draft.

    Classic Flanders Sour Red. Very sour and oaky. Any fan of sour beers should try this Belgian.

    Hands down the best Flanders sour red ale you can get in America. Very sour and very refined. Notes of oak and dark cherry. Never disappoints.

    Excellent beer. Very sour. Smooth dark fruit and woody flavors.

    Love it. Fantastic woody notes, and probably the best sour beer you can get in the states.

    Very tart sourness. If you like sour beers, you have to get your hands on this.

    I’ve had it on tap, and ponied up $20 for a 4-lack at the local beer store. A great way to treat yourself or celebrate an occasion.
