Bottle. A - Deep golden copper color with an average sized, foamy, light, whispy, white head. Disappears pretty fast leaving a nice patchy lace. S - Mouth watering aroma. Sour and tart fruit with green apple, cherry, grapefruit, lemon and others. Touch of oaky aroma and maybe hints of vanilla as well. Some Belgian yeast and malty sweetness. Definitely has a funk to it. Very promising nose. T - Has tart, sour, and funky flavors but not a kick you in the face sour beer. Good balance between the tart fruits mentioned above and the nice oaky/woody flavors. The more I drink and as it warms, the more oaky flavors come out which is very nice. A subtle sweetness shows up as well. Tart apple is the strongest flavor, but the others have a good showing. M - Lighter body with average/slightly below carbonation. Somewhat crisp and slightly zesty. Good but mouthfeel is probably the weakest point of this beer. D - Pretty drinkable sour with a great balance between sour/tart fruit and oaky woodiness. A sipper due to the style but I would gladly drink another again. No problem finishing a 750 mL bottle. Notes: I’m pleasantly surprised by this beer as I hadn’t been overly impressed by other Petrus offerings and this is very cheap for a sour imported from Belgium. I ended up enjoying this quite a bit though. Great balance between the tart/sour fruit and woodiness. Really pretty enjoyable and given the price I could definitely see myself getting this again. Not the best sour, but for the cost it is definitely worth a look.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle at Resurrection Alehouse. Pours dark clear gold, solid white head. Very citric aroma, with an oaky earthiness. Mouth-puckering sour, but still strangely drinkable. Only a touch of sweetness on the palate.

Bottle. Tart, malty aroma with vinous notes. Pours clear, golden colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Tart, vinous flavor with apple notes to start. Finishes dry with tart, vinous notes and a clean refreshing end. Pretty good.

SamP01 (582) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow, sparkling almost champagne like with a small white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, biscuit malt with ripe fruity notes. Taste is mildly tart and sour with some Belgian yeast, has a kind of sour fruit slightly vinegary white wine. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation and sweet tart sourness on the tongue. Finish same as taste with some faint notes of malt on the end gives it slight balance. Overall a bit on the sour side yet a drinkable brew none the less.

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Goudgeel helder bier bijna geen schuim. Aroma is fris, zurig. Smaak is als witte wijn, licht zuur. Afdronk is mooi.
