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

This is a solid beer with a pleasant scent and good taste on the tongue. It feels good on the mouth and is definitely a good beer overall. It certainly has character.

Poured gently into a tulip glass it is a mostly transparent, deep gold color and it produced a pretty substantial soapy white, semi fizzy head. Decent amount of lacing.

It smells like very ripe fruit, and funky yeast with noticeable musty/mildew like wood.

There is a sharp, sour acidic bite that settles into fruity flavors of pear, apple, and white grapes. Also oak, and a sublte darker fruit in the background.

It is crisp, and lively, but not light bodied. A decent amount of heft.
