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

Nice barrel aged pale ale. Aromatic and tart, this one is a real treat. A lot of oak presence. Estery notes. Good velvety mouthfeel.
Quite enjoyable.

11.2 oz in a tulip.

Appearance: Cloudy orange straw. Big head that recedes somewhat swiftly.

Aroma: Candy sugar, grapes, citrus, sour apple.

Taste: Sweet/sour combo. Notes of apple and pear. Malt sweetness. Burned sugar.

Mouthfeel: Some booze. Drinkable. Not painfully sour or too sweet.

Overall: Fun BPA. Pretty accessible and well executed.

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.
