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

Bottled dated 2011. Pours golden blonde with a decent amount of bubbly head that's there and gone in a heartbeat. Sour citrus burns a hole through my mucus membranes; not particularly what I'd expect from an oud bruin. Deep whiffs draw out barrel-tinged malts and grapefruit. On the tongue it's sharp, sour and acidic with a wonderful finish. A fine brew for heartburn enthusiasts. Sour grapefruit, juicy apples, lemon peel and a hint of cherry. It's heavily carbonated and goes down easy, though "smooth" is the last adjective I'd attach to this one. I think this beverage is doing serious damage to my stomach lining. Otherwise, sure, it's a good sour. Nothing out of this world, but a very drinkable brew.
