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
BreweryOmer Vander Ghinste
It all started in 1892, when Remi Vander Ghinste bought a house with accompanying buildings from a brewer for his 23-year-old son, Omer. That same year, the first barrels of Ouden Tripel (now VanderGhinste Oud Bruin) rolled out across the cobblestones of Bellegem. Omer delivered his beers by horse and cart in the region of Kortrijk. As brands didn’t exist at that time, he gave the beers his own name: the “bieren Omer Vander Ghinste”.
