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

The body had a bright golden color than darker near the edges. The head was effervescent and lively with a fair amount of retention.

The aroma is deeply fruity with more orchard than tropical. I certainly catch the aromas of pear and Apple with a bit of straw, but tones of oak, lemon, peach and earth can definitely be had.

The flavor reminds me of a Golden Ale with a strong pear and Apple flavor. The oak is subdued but trace evidence is found on the palate. Notes of earthy straw and lemon help to stabilize the finish.

The feel is quite lively on the tongue but never harsh and very light.

This is a very good beer, despite it not being what I'd expect from an Oud Bruin.
