There are better sours out there, sure, but it’s hard to find a better value on a sour ale than Petrus. Always inexpensive, always worth whatever coin you did shell out, this golden, tart wonder provides all the necessities in a quality wild beer, plus a good bit of oaken cheer as well. Granted, on tap Petrus Aged Pale is an altogether different animal, raging and acidic and close to inducing pucker fatalities. Bottled is tamer, but still lovely. Could look a little better, I guess. Kinda close in appearance to many a lesser lager-- yet this outward frumpiness could be a plus, since it in no way prepares you for the deliciousness to come. As soon as you smell it, though, no questions. Then the sip, the lemony, tart cherry, the moderately easygoing middle, the fade of oak and sour lemon Warheads, shit, this beer is tasty. Great sour fix for a great price.

TizzleJizzle (625) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from the Bottle Shop Dallas. Tart on the nose. Poured a clear light yellow color with a thin white top and nice lacing. Taste of cherries, acidic, spice. Great carbonation. Overall I wish it was as complex as other sour ales.

arnold931 (624) - Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with no head. Looks like a mead. Nose is grape and apple. Taste sour apple with a little funk. Dry aftertaste.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - APR 20, 2012
Delicious sour. Pale golden color. The nose smells just like a well aged Grand Cru White Burgundy. Medium bodied, nimble, highly acidic with a finish that just won’t stop. Amazing beer. From tap.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Light golden color with a big diminishing head. Large sweet aroma, like a honey liquor. Fruity sweet and sour in the flavor. A little acidic in the aftertaste. Runs the gamut of sweet but I find it smooth and flavorfull.

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2005
Pours light clear straw with lively carbonation and a fluffy head of very fine bubbles. Aroma is a medium tartness with apples, some light wheat/hay. Flavor is mildly tart, apples, berries and a mild wheat. Very crisp and refreshing. Definatly does not seem like a 7% beer.

zoucrew102 (610) - - APR 13, 2014
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.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy pissy golden lager color, with a huge rigid white head. Great lacing and head retention. Nose is that of a slightly sour brown sugar, as well as some acidic citrusy tang. Wow what an explosion of flavor. There is a slight hint of bubblrgum sweetness accentuated by a powerful sour edge. I love the balance on this beer, and will continue to return.
