Petrus Aged Pale has a thin, white head, a clear, yellow-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and a good bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of extremely strong, lemony sourness and a touch of sugary sweetness. Taste is an explosion of sour lemon with an underlying sweetness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Petrus Aged Pale finishes dry, refreshing, and very drinkable. If you enjoy Lemonheads or Sweet-Tarts, you might enjoy this.

Poured a honey pale color with three fingers of white head when I got it. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. A healthy amount of layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention on the way down.

Smelled Sweet Tarts, Smarties, bourbon, sour cherry, sour grapes, kiwi and faint vomit.

Tasted sour grapes, sour cherry, Sweet Tarts, Smarties, grape and faint bourbon.

Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively-to-average carbonation. Long finish.

A very good sour and I’m glad I finally tried it. Would be interested in trying some other Petrus beers.

Bottled dated 2011. Pours golden blonde with a decent amount of bubbly head that's there and gone in a heartbeat. Sour citrus burns a hole through my mucus membranes; not particularly what I'd expect from an oud bruin. Deep whiffs draw out barrel-tinged malts and grapefruit. On the tongue it's sharp, sour and acidic with a wonderful finish. A fine brew for heartburn enthusiasts. Sour grapefruit, juicy apples, lemon peel and a hint of cherry. It's heavily carbonated and goes down easy, though "smooth" is the last adjective I'd attach to this one. I think this beverage is doing serious damage to my stomach lining. Otherwise, sure, it's a good sour. Nothing out of this world, but a very drinkable brew.
