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

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.

A - golden, slight haze, thin white head, sticky lace

S - tartness, light wood, cider, white wine, some funky barnyard

T - funk is more pronounced in the flavour, sharp sourness, not a lot of fruit character, definitely lemon, possibly some peach, aftertaste is almost woody/cedar-like,

M - medium carbonation, very fluffy and light mouthfeel, bone dry finish

D - not my absolute favourite sour ale, but there ain't a damn thing wrong with it either, a very dependable standby.

Quite a nice sour, sweetness is low, but still has a hint. Very unbeer-like, which to me is an indication of a good sour, if that makes sense. I'd love to pair this with some stinky cheeses (unfortunately, I'm all out at the moment). Very solid, I would never turn down the chance to have some.
