I had again and have changed my view. It is a good. classic sour. Smooth, with an apple and bitter hop taste. Flavorful, but when done well, it's not over the top.

A. Clear straw gold color with a nice bubbly white head. A few bubbles sprinkled throughout.

S. Extremely strong alcohol, wheat and malt scent to it.

T. Extremely strong alcohol taste. Extremely sweet. Puckeringly sweet. Lemon over the top. Citrus. Taste more like a cider; I have no idea where the pale ale comes from.

M. Very tart.

O. This is a nice summer morning beer. Almost like a mimosa. The lemon is very strong. No more than a 6 oz pour is necessary, else it's simply too much. Has some good qualities, but only in moderation.

33 cl bottle poured into a chalice.

Color is a dark and slightly cloudy orange, promising a good, sturdy body and mouthfeel. Head is almost non-existent, yeast colony instantly appears on the top. Despite being a live beer, it looks very clean.

Smell is surprisingly sour, but with sensual undertones of soft caramel. Wood notes from the barrel aging clearly present, extremely inviting.

First hit of taste is strong lactic acid hitting the back of the tongue and throat, but mellows out into beautiful fruity sweetness. Carbonation is soft and natural and allows for a smooth slide down the throat.

All in all, beautiful beer and a priviledge to be able to get this quite handily in supermarkets. By far the top dog in the Petrus range.
