I poured a golden-looking beer, which, unfortunately, had a poor retention in my example here. The aroma is intriguing: apricots and barnyard-like tones associated with brettanomyces, as well as other acid-producing bacteria. The light, crisp body leaves a relatively long aftertaste showcasing, of course, the tartness and the wood-aged taste that this beer conveyed during the whole sampling.

I ordered this thinking is would be a more like my favorite Allagash Curieaux. I was shockingly disappointed. It was like drinking a tart lemonade. Not at all what I wanted tonight. I see the other reviews and i think maybe i was served the wrong beer at the Original Gravity Pub in San Jose. ??
It was a clear bright yellow, no head, tart beyond my liking. My dinner partner could not even swallow it.
Again, not sure if it was the beer or the pourer.

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.
