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 into a tulip

A- pours like champagne; crystal clear golden in color with lovely bubbles shooting up the glass, small sudsy white head that retains long after the pour and sticks to the sides

S- tart fruity notes of apple peel, pear and white grape skin, maybe even some cherry. Sour vinegar and grainy, oaky barrel notes

T- puckering tartness up front gives way to some light and fruity flavors of apple and pear that continues into a juicy middle, highlighted by the oak barrel, which adds some woodsy and earthy flavors, the finish is bone dry and tart, with lingers of grape skin that becomes more apparent as it warms

M- Medium body with spritzy champagne-like carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a dry and puckering finish

O- a puckering sipper that has some nice fruity flavors, complimented by some nice barrel notes. My favorite from Petrus
