I generally don’t like these super sour fruity beers, but this one is more bearable. The sourness doesnt overwhelm as much as others do. While I can’t say I am crazy about it, I don’t mind drinking it.

Golden, clear, the aroma preannunces its taste, quite sour but not in an extreme way. Medium body and not a long finish; quite good and drinkable, not as "explosive" as I expected.

Ooh. what a surprise, the bottle doesn’t say this is a Flemish. I really like this beer; very tart and biting; no subtlety here!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appears a hazy, pale gold with a lush, 2 finger, fluffy white head. Lots of scattered streaks of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is sugary, oaky, tart apples, aged with lactobacillus, brett, sweet tarts, mild cherries, cakey yeast, aged funk, and perhaps some over-ripened banana peel.
Taste is of the aromas...sweet tart, funky, bacteria laden, infected oak aged, Belgian brew. I think you’ll either love it, or not. Personally, I really enjoyed it.
Mouthfeel is sweet up front, tart along the tongue, light bodied, mildly acidic, spritzy, and dry.
A nice experience of a tart, Oak barrel brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured hazy pale color with a large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Heavy tart citrus and fruit aroma. Medium body. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium sour finish of moderated duration. This is a very refreshing standout beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly clouded golden body with a small white head. Smells like a freshly baked cherry muffin. Very malty with a bready character. Oak barrel flavour and floral hops with mild-medium bitterness. Probably the most hoppy/bitter Flemish Sour I’ve ever had. The balance is amazing, all elements express themselves perfectly. Pleasant surprise, underrated and probably held down because of the lacklustre Petrus name. I wish everything “aged” would be so irresistible… unlike me….

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy, orangey amber colour with a medium-sized white head. Sweet and sour fruit aroma, hinting towards cherries. Great fruity flavours, great balance between sweet and sour, warming alcohol. Cherry and sour yoghurt flavours, woody finish leaving the mouth dry. Well-carbonated, good mouthfeel. A masterpiece of a beer-please some in Europe as wel!!
