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

Pour is a semi hazy golden hue, bubbly and loud head initially which eventually settles to a small white ring. Hints of apple cider-like funk in the aroma, nice Belgian yeast characteristic. Getting some pears, apricots and peaches in the aroma as well. For the taste, getting more of a sour punch than the funk detected in the nose. Apple and vinager like profile, oak more noticeable as it warms. Typical Belgian yeast bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel is relatively thin, moderately high carbonation, and finishes very dry. Nice sour, nothing too complex or over the top but very easy to drink and enjoyable.
