A good sour. After every sip I taste sour. I doubt it is Aged but it is definitely sour!

Sorry, but reading all the other’s ratings... I can’t believe it. When I just taste it I thought something was wrong, a bad one because a bacteria or similar. Then I googled the beer and abracadabra: A lots of ratings extolling the vinegar taste, acid and all these stupid snob ratings pretending to look "cool beer hunters". Pathetic. This is a absolutely failed experiment, that’s all. This is not a beer, is just a bad experiment, but bottled.
I’m open minded with beer but one thing is that a beer could have somewhat acid, or vinegar taste in the right measure. But this is absolutely predominant over the other flavors.
Don’t waste your money in that beer, no matter the prizes...

I have not seen this beer before at the LCBO, so I jumped all over it. Bought two bottles.
What a mistake!
Just an awful tasting beverage. Sour and bitter in an atrocious combination. If this is the best Petrus has to offer (and according to people around here, that is the case), I will stay far, far away from them.
One of only a couple of beers that was poured down the drain.

Pours golden with white top. Aroma brings up some cellar, dead leaves, fruits, floral notes, citrus, some old furniture. Taste is sour, also some pepper, fermented fruits, pineapple, some sweetness. After stays quite sharp, can feel carbonisation and fermentation. Very good and interesting beer!

Beautiful clear golden honey color with a thin white head. Lots of funky sour aroma with only a little cheese/stinky feet. Definite sour bite right up front, but it’s smooth and more barnyard and hay. Usually with this type of sourness there’s more of a malty or woody component to balance it out, but this has a much milder body (which I guess is the pale part) which seems like it wouldn’t be enough, but it is. Everything shines through here with an excellent balance and restraint. This reminds me of a light version of Monk’s Cafe. What could be an excessively sour beer is refreshing and almost champagne-like.
