Notes / Commercial Description:
Petrus Aged Pale is a 100% beer from our foeders. Michael Jackson, the beer hunter, chose the name in the late 1990s – and he was the first to sell this beer in his beer clubs. Today, it is still the reference for sour beers in the US. Petrus Aged Pale has won multiple gold medals in beer competitions worldwide. Moreover, ever since the start of the brewery, the beer has been used as a blending-beer with other beers to give them fresh, slightly sour flavors and aromas.

Aged in Oak foeders for over 24 months

Pours a slightly orange gold. Large big bubbled foam head quickly dies down to a nice half an inch of crust, with a thin layer of bubbles. No Flat Abbey here!

Smells faintly of vinous tartness, more strongly of acidic lemon, and faintly of oak. Interesting. Kind of like a "sour lite." Nothing about this really screams oud bruin at me. If anything, the two beers I'm smelling are Consecration or Sang Royal.

Taste is, again, like a Consecration-lite or Sang Royal-lite. Oak comes across much more strongly. More vinous/grape than I would have thought. And a bit of interesting pungent lemon/acid and .. .is that funk? ... that gets to be a bit too much after a while. A 12 oz. bottle is just the right amount.

At 3.50ish not a great price point, but definitely adding it to my sour rotation.
