Reviewed 3/6/13. 11.2 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a light golden amber color. The head is a one finger white shade. It’s more substantial looking than others in the style, but still fades quickly. Thin splotches of lacing are left on the glass. S: There’s good tartness on the nose - better than I expected really, given how low the Petrus Oud Bruin was in sour qualities. The fruit esters here are pretty light; apple, pear, grapes, and maybe some vague citrus. Even touches of honey and pale malts are found. T: Oh yeah. This one has some good mouth-puckering sourness. It’s definitely acetic/vinegary in nature; however, it’s not perfectly integrated within the other (meager) qualities the flavor profile provides. It is balanced well, however. Just like the aroma, there aren’t really any cherry fruit qualities, it’s pretty much apple/pears/grapes alongside the acetic sourness. It becomes less tart near the finish as some light maltiness and the faintest ’ping’ of grassy hops come through. M: Pretty damn light in texture, which is just what I look for in the style. Oak tannins help to dry out some of the acidic zing on the finish and aftertaste, and never come across too harshly. It isn’t particularly easy to drink, but it IS easy to sip, and that’s what counts. O: This one definitely delivers the sour, puckering bite to it - and at a decent price, to boot! I really wish it was fruitier, but that’s just nitpicking. I’d definitely consider making this one a go-to sour for me.

Silvan7 (633) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle@ home. Giallo dorato, limpida con schiuma bianca, fine non molto persistente. aroma acetico, legno, scorza di limone, speziato di vaniglia , ricorda un po’ una cantina ed ha note di alcool. Gusto secco, fruttato agrumato scorza di limone. Acida, vinosa-acetica. Di nuovo un sentore di cantina e di legno. Corpo pieno abbastanza carbonata. Spigolosa, non molto calda. Equilibrato ed armonico.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Mild kumquat and currant nose with even milder oak, a bit of funk. Clear amber, medium head. Quite sour, lime is dominant, but cherry is also present. Finishes with oak. Medium body, cask-like smooth carbonation. Lacks the complexities of a gueuze, but is similarly tasty and refreshing. Really good, and probably Petrus’ best beer.

Moravius (381) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
Flasche (33 cl), 6 Monate über dem MHD. - Dunkles Goldgelb, klar. - Nase kräftig sauer mit holzigen und weinigen Noten. - Antrunk scharf milchsäuerlich mit einem Stich ins Essigsaure, abgemildert durch viel Frucht: Limonensaft, grüne Äpfel. Mild rezent, recht volles Mundgefühl. Süße ist kaum mehr vorhanden, aber eine leichte Honignote im Hintergrund. Stark saurer, leicht holziger, sehr trockener Abgang. Herb-säuerlicher Nachtrunk mit muffiger Kellernote. - Extremes Bier, aber ein erstklassiger Durstlöscher. Erinnert sehr an Gueuze. Die zweite Flasche schmeckte mir schon wesentlich besser als die erste. Mein Lieblingsbier wird es aber trotzdem nicht ...
