4.03/5 rDev -1.2%
- Pours a golden yellow, slightly hazy, with a cm of foam.
- Smells of lemon and sour grapes.
- Taste is tart lemon up front with sour grapes and oak. Sourness doesn't linger and the finish is very mild, slightly dry. The finish is refreshing, however, this beer is not complex or multilayered.
-Overall a very decent sour. It is able to satisfy a sour craving, but does lack complexity. This is a great introductory sour as there is nothing too offense or bold or funky. Also, it is readily available and affordable at $4/bottle, I like to keep a few of these around for a refreshing weeknight delight.

3.71/5 rDev -9.1%
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.
