330 ml bottle, the last one in a box of six different Petrus beers. Poured into a snifter. ABV 7,3%. Colour is deep copper, with quite an activity in the glass. On top of the beer sits a big white head, almost three fingers, soapy and thick, with good retention.Aroma is of grapes, sweet-sour, some citrus notes in it. Very high acidity on the taste, this one screams sour! Again, lots of white grapes on the taste. After my initial big gulp, where I almost choke from the acidity, I started drinking it with slow small sips and it’s quite good. Full body and average carbonation. A combination of dryness and tartness on the palate. Still not very experienced on this style, but I liked this one. Reminded me of a homemade wine an uncle of mine was making, so maybe it’s also the memories, but this beer was quite enjoyable and I guess it would be even better with a meal.

4.21/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: 4.5 Crystal clear, pale gold. One-inch off-white head that lasts about a minute.
S: 4 Pretty mild. There’s a good amount of funk at first with some pepper, bread, lemon, and oak.
T: 4.25 Quite tart at first with slightly sweet bready malt closely behind. Lots of white pepper and lemon that go very well with the tart/funk flavors. Very light bitterness on the aftertaste.
M: 4.25 Farily light but not too thin. There’s enough there that makes the beer feel substantial but also leaves you wanting more. The dry finish is very nice, but there could be a bit more carbonation.
O: 4.25 This beer is easy to get and very pleasing if you’re looking to satisfy a sour craving. There are a lot of really nice flavors and a good tartness level. Not quite up there with some of the popular gueuze offerings, but a solid alternative.
