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

Petrus Aged Pale is in a league of it's own. It's a perfect sour ale retaining the quality flavors of a pale ale while still having the great sour flavors. It I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life this one might be it.

Asked the guy who worked at our local liquor store for his best sour, he stated this was his "go to for sours". Matured in oak barrels for 20 months. Thought we'd give it a try.

Appearance - Clear, sunflower yellow with a white head with a medium rate of dissipation, some lacing small head remains.

Smell: Dank, citrus, acidic, funky hay

Taste - Not overwhelmingly sour, citrusy (lemon, grapefruit), vinegar, oak tannins

Mouth Feel: moderately carbonated, light mouthfeel, crisp

Would be a great summer beer, not too sour. I personally prefer a more berry based sour. Probably not my "go to".

Food Pairings: Dirty grapes and chicken. WhamBam!
