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 bottle into FW taster glasses.

A: pale yellow pour, hints of hazyness and a little cream head that fades quickly.

S: SOUR! Very simple, but it lets you know what's coming.

T: More sour! Great, no frills added sour. Nothing wrong with adding fruit or other creative endeavors, but this is a straight up crisp sour. Very refreshing.

M: crisp and clean, does not linger.

O: an excellent no frills sour That is readily available.

330ml bottle. Wide Flute glass. Gold color, crystal clear appearance. White froth creates a close crown & leaves a wide ring on sides. Well balanced aroma profile displays sour citric & wood notes, spices & sugary hues on the backside. Gentle malty upfront is blowed up by sharp & intense tartar flavor. Light body. Soft carbonation. Spiced, dense & sour palate. Fruity touches in the middle resolve in a kind astringency from lemon & grapefruit rounded by memories of grape tannins. Long sour finish yields to a fruity & spiced aftertaste. ABV is just felt as a gentle heat through the throat. Refreshing & flavorful.
