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

Poured a clear golden red body with lively carbonation for a frothy one finger head and a lace ring. A funky yeast smell with some sour grape/dark fruit tart smell along hints of some oakiness. Light bodied and smooth, this beer flows easily over the tongue and is real sharp thanks to lively carbonation. The beer gives off sour fruitness like grape and cherry along with something like figs and berries. Has a good amount of sweetness as well and then finishes dry thanks to some woodiness. A little livelier than expected but a great beer to sip on.

I find this concept pretty interesting and if i really think about it i havnt had too many beers like this before anyway it pours a golden pale hue with decent carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head that slowly recedes to a rim,the smells are mustiness,white grapes,a abit of oak and some fruit punch aswell,it has a rather sour puckering mouthfeel which is quite light bodied and feels like a nice wine with tastes of sour white grapes,fruit punch,goosberries,herbal hops and finishes with a ever so smooth tart champagne finish and overall this brew is quite unique and even though this one would do me nicely for tonight i will buy it again without doubt as there aint too many brews that taste like this cheers.
