Curvee Des Jacobins Rouge, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
A: The red ale is a dark cherry red color, opaque due to the hue, with a small white band of head.
S: The nose is sour cherry, full and sweet, with just a touch of funkiness. The sour aromas are definitely there
T: Sour cherry and vanilla drive the flavor. The flemish red aspects impart the cherry notes, smoothing out acetic vinegar flavors with the sour fruit.
M: The fruit, funk and wood all take their turns, moving from sweet to sour and back again with ease.
D: Weighing in below 6%, with a solid flavor and not too much acetic tartness, what’s there not to like.
