Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge


(Brewed at Omer Vander Ghinste )

The roots of our brewery date back to May 1892. It was a time when every brewer brewed its own special beer. It was no different in Bellegem, a rural village in West Flanders within a stone’s throw of the French border. In that same year, the first barrels of "Ouden Tripel", what is today called "Bellegems Bruin", rolled across the cobblestones in Bellegem and were renowned as far as French Flanders.

Year Round

Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge

5.5% Flanders red/sour

Cuvée des Jacobins is unblended lambic, aged for at least 18 months in (French) oak barrels from the cognac region. These oak barrels are called ‘Foeders’ in Dutch. It has a robust character but is beautiful and sophisticated with a full body and overtones of vanilla, dried cherry, stone fruit and cocoa. It is a complex, beautiful sour beer.
