I have loved this beer for almost 15 years, since it was called 'Petrus Oak Aged Ale', and I spent the past 10 years without it. I had trepidations when I finally got my hands on it, as it had been so long since I had it. It may be slightly different now than it was then; it doesn't have the oak floaties and it is slightly lighter in hue, but that could be attributed to a more thorough filtering. It still is the among the best out. It has all of the characteristics that I prize in a beer.
A - Hazy iced tea hue with a mm or so of persistent foam abstractly clinging to the glass, eventually appearing as if it were lacing as seen by Pollock. It has almost all of the characteristics that I prize in a beer.
S - Smells like Calabrese young olives, acidic, astringent, sour, pickled peppers, and apple cider vinegar; it is awesome, and not at all how it sounds. It has all of the characteristics that I prize in a beer.
T - Funky, sour, astringent-briny without being the slightest bit saline, it has all of the characteristics that I prize in a beer.
M - Puckeringly sour, with moderately sharp carbonation, on the lighter side of medium-bodied. It has all of the characteristics that I prize in a beer.
D - My favorite beer ever. No question about it. Not hyped; I don't care. It is the deal. It has all of the characteristics that I prize in a beer.

330ml bottle. Wide Flute glass. Gold color, crystal clear appearance. White froth creates a close crown & leaves a wide ring on sides. Well balanced aroma profile displays sour citric & wood notes, spices & sugary hues on the backside. Gentle malty upfront is blowed up by sharp & intense tartar flavor. Light body. Soft carbonation. Spiced, dense & sour palate. Fruity touches in the middle resolve in a kind astringency from lemon & grapefruit rounded by memories of grape tannins. Long sour finish yields to a fruity & spiced aftertaste. ABV is just felt as a gentle heat through the throat. Refreshing & flavorful.
