3.71/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Sampled from a 750 ml bottle with a date of 07-05-15. Started at 50 degrees.

A - Golden and clear with a moderate head of large bubbles that dissipates quickly leaving a small dusting of foam.

S - Very woody at first and maybe a little cardboard. It gets better as it warms. The wood seems to fade and other aspects emerge.

T - Minimal sour/tart. I expected more. Fruity with some wood and alcohol. The wood and sour notes come out more as it warms.

M - Light and airy with a moderately high carbonation.

O - I didn't like it off the bat but it got better as it sat in the glass and warmed up even more. But I still didn't love it.

Petrus pours a primarily clear golden color, with some hints of bronze. There's a thin ring of pure white sitting on top. The aroma was an excellent bouquet of floral and fruit scents, with a slight suggestion of funky yeast as well. The taste revealed the benefits of aging with a pleasant earthiness, and a tasty cider sourness. Very tart and wine-like. Moderate body with a dry mouth feel. I would have loved to have a nice cheese plate with this... maybe next time. Order this when you can fully appreciate it's delicate beauty... this is one fine sour.
