Poured chilled in flared sample glass @davewhite4, the third of a Petrus trilogy.

A: pilsener-like; little head; very good carbonation; not much lacing
S: very sour aroma; quite prominent for a sour ale (the best nose of the three we tried)
T: lemon, honey, much like a cold hot toddy; very sour, Pimms-like; I don't detect the aging; flavorful throughout, with fruit flavors matched nicely against the sourness
M: decent

Best of the three Petrus beers

Appearance: Frothy chardonnay...that description about sums it up. A bit darker than a white wine.

Smell: Doesn't match up with the rest of the beer. Sourdough...slightly off-putting. It's good, but I would like it a bitter stronger.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Pungent bleu cheese and vinegar with a lemon finish. A grapey wine flavor as well. Petrus Aged Ale gets very complex as it warms and improves on its yeasty characteristics. Clean finish that complements the acidic traits perfectly.

Overall Drinkability: Takes some getting used to, but this will wake you up. World. Class.
