Petrus Aged Pale is in a league of it's own. It's a perfect sour ale retaining the quality flavors of a pale ale while still having the great sour flavors. It I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life this one might be it.

Asked the guy who worked at our local liquor store for his best sour, he stated this was his "go to for sours". Matured in oak barrels for 20 months. Thought we'd give it a try.

Appearance - Clear, sunflower yellow with a white head with a medium rate of dissipation, some lacing small head remains.

Smell: Dank, citrus, acidic, funky hay

Taste - Not overwhelmingly sour, citrusy (lemon, grapefruit), vinegar, oak tannins

Mouth Feel: moderately carbonated, light mouthfeel, crisp

Would be a great summer beer, not too sour. I personally prefer a more berry based sour. Probably not my "go to".

Food Pairings: Dirty grapes and chicken. WhamBam!

75ml corked bottle. Exceptionally smooth and drinkable for a sour ale. Lightly hazy, medium golden with light airy head. Soft, but full, fruity, cider aroma. Taste is fizzy, light, mildly acidic, malt, cider, wood. This one has me rethinking sour ales, most of which are too tart for my palate.

Bottle dated 21/1/12

Pours bright with an initially fluffy head that dies down very quickly. Clear and crisp looking with few bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. A thin film of head lingers for most of the session, however, this includes pouring the rest of the 750ml which agitates the head every pour.

This beer smells like dry white wine, pear, lemon with a slight tinge of vinegar. Funk is also present, but not predominant. The flavor of this beer is much like the taste; light fruits, funk, along with a huge pucker-factor that the sour characteristics bring. Very refreshing on the palate and quite easy to drink.

Overall, I'd highly recommend whether or not you are just interested in trying new styles of beer, or are already a sour fan.
