3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Birra che mi ha deluso. L’aroma è abbastanza complesso e fa ben sperare, con note acidule, legnose e leggermente caramellate. Ma in bocca non dà alcuna emozione. L’acidulo si sente poco e il resto ancora meno. Non dà brutte sensazioni in bocca, ma neanche belle. Direi che è molto acquosa nel sapore. Francamente mi aspettavo di più

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with big gluffy offwhite head. Lots of dry old wood, hints of grapes, prune, roasted malts. Very light sour over a faint brown sugar backbone, outcome in the middle is a bit blank, leaning towards cardboard, but not like some other unfortunate brews. Very creamy, nice fizz going on, body is quite thin. Quite a nice beer with an old timey feeling. Not remarkable but I like this!

Denne Petrus har et mørkt brunt og uklart udseende med et svagt hvidt skum. Øllen har både en aroma og smag af sød og syrlig frugt, samt noter af karamel og malt. Lav karbonering.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Amber brown with reddish hues and a beige head. Aroma includes cherry, oak, malt. Taste is sour, but not overwhelmingly so. Cherry, wood, and malt. Some sweetness to balance the tartness. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: cherry with sweet and sour undertones; not as Robitussin-like as other Petrus beer; Apperance: very dark brown/red with frothy head that dissipates quickly; a little lacing; Taste: sour dominates with some sweet cherry notes; refreshing; Palate: medium body; lively carbonation; long, sweet finish; as temperature rises the hops start coming through along with a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste; Overall: a nice sour though I would like a little more complexity. Would buy again if looking for a drinkable sour that isn’t too overwhelming.
