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

Pours a clear nice color not a lot of head but smells sour and amazing... tart tart tart smell can't wait to taste this. mmm mmm makes my mouth pucker but damn that's cleansing and refreshing. A nice palate cleanser after something that might wreck your palate. Learning more about the sour style and loving every min of it. Let's drink more!!!
