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

A well done sour with notes of buttery oak and freshly riped sour lemons

Not overly sour. I like true Belgium sours but after trying a few really bad sours over the years I have shied away from the style—why pay high prices for a gamble on flavor. This beer is close to what I remember sours tasting 20 yrs ago when the sour hint was there but not overpowering.

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Playing Escape from the Past. Just sourness, in both nose and mouth, without much more. Low drinkability. Boring. Didnt find myself wanting to finish it after the kid wake up and had to interrupt drinking it

Word to the sour patch kids that were harmed in the making of this beer. Very dry and finishes quickly....thank goodness. Good for a Belgian pale ale, but don't find it to be the 'best' in my opinion.

Taste is light sourness with buttery wood soaked in lemon juice that has a cherry, slightly hoppy pale ale finish.

Taste got more sour and better as it warmed.
