Aged? Many beers have a long maturation, but this one has only 24-36 months in oak barrels. Pale? This beer has an old gold to bronze color, rather than the burgundy more common in the breweries of West Flanders. This is the mother beer, used in various quantities to blend with the other Petrus beers, and to give them their unique and very distinctive taste. This mother beer is rather sour with a bite like the best Brut Champagnes. A connoisseurs delight! The only one of its kind on the U.S. market.

Grisza77 (710) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 9, 2017
Złote, zamglone piwo o początkowo dość obfitej pianie, ktra jednak dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat wyraźny kwach plus owoce. W smaku kwach, owoce, lekko cierpkie, a nawet ze słonym posmakiem. Goryczka niska, ale jest fajny kwaśny posmak. Oglnie bardzo udany kwach, wyrazisty, orzeźwiający i do tego pijalny.

Kochompiwo (9) - POLAND - APR 9, 2017 does not count
Z pianą to słabiutko. W aromacie intensywny kwach, ocet jabłkowy, przez chwilę wyczułem też cytrusy. W smaku jest kwaśno - całkiem mocny ten zawodnik, wysokie nasycenie, z czasem winny profil dominuje na języku. Proste, lekkie, nic zobowiązującego.

chimayx (100) - FRANCE - APR 9, 2017
Belle couleur blonde limpide, avec une mousse compose de bulles de taille moyenne. Dans le nez et la bouche, les armes acides sont assez importants, moins toutefois que dans les gueuzes les plus acides. Lattaque est acide, un fond de vinaigre, puis des notes de pomme, de vin, de citron, citron vert,et quelques points de "bassecour". Lacidit sur le fond de la langue est bien complte et quilibre par un caractre sucr et lgrement moelleux, doux. Les armes sont complexes, le corps bien balanc, au final la bire est excellente, gouter si vous aimez les bires acides.

arturteen (53) - Radomsko, POLAND - APR 8, 2017
[Butelka 14.03.2019] Barwa złocista, klarowne. Piana niska, szybko redukująca się. W aromacie ocet, kwas, czuć dzikość. Smak potwierdza pierwsze wrażenie. Na podniebieniu cierpkie, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Ciekawe doznanie.

WarMan04 (260) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - APR 7, 2017
Pours golden colour with a small and white head. Aroma of pure sourness, then fruits, mostly apples and malty hints. Some funky notes too. Taste is mostly sour, wine and fruits. Sweet and acid finish. Medium body, highly carbonated. Pretty refreshing. On one hand its a very simple beer, but on the other hand its still interesting and worth trying.

kluczbork (260) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 5, 2017
Bottle. Aroma- pure sourness, with apples and some white wine notes. Delicate vinegar in the background. Pleasant and intensive. pale, clear, with a white head, which quickly disappears. In the taste, the sourness is medium, then come apples, wine and delicate wooden notes in the aftertaste. Quite dry. Very refreshing, medium-bodied, with a medium carbonation. Very good sour ale.

lkowalkowski (314) - POLAND - APR 5, 2017
Jasne, piana obfita, gęsta. Średnio i drobno pęcherzykowata. Aromat dosyć intensywny, przede wszystkim kwaśny. Trochę winny i owocowy. W smaku kwaśne, ale bardzo przyjemne. Fajna owocowa goryczka na finiszu.
