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 gentle, golden, apple juice color. Highly transparent. Thick, bubbly had with solid lacing.

Mild vinegar aroma with some fruity notes.

Sour flavor is subtle and resembles tart white grapes. Dry, leafy hop snap. Malt less the background with a mild honey sweetness.

Light to medium bodied with a bone dry finish. High carbonation works well for the style.

Very good stuff.
