COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 connoisseur’s delight! The only one of its kind on the U.S. market.

nephirem (633) - CROATIA - SEP 27, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden pour, almost no head. Pleasant nose, not as sour as expected. Well balanced. Slight apple vinegar, subtle citrus hops, some candy-like notes. Liquory.

Medium body, high carbonation. Light and fizzy on the palate. Taste is sour. Unlike the nose, sourness really hits hard in the taste. However, it's not overwhelming, really nicely balanced and quite tasty. Aroma of apple vinegar, citrus, herbal liquor. Some woody notes. Sugar. Candy. Sticky mouthfeel. Some bitterness towards the finish. Lasting subtle alcohol burn.

Overall, quite tasty. Different and interesting beer to try but definitely not for everyone.

Bouteille 330 ml / Boissons Center - Montagny (CH). Blonde brillante à mousse blanche moyenne et fugace. Arômes sûrets et frais, fruité complexe et tannique, caramel-miel. Le goût a une acidité vive avec des notes de bois, d'agrumes, pomme verte et caramel. Aigre doux subtil et frais tendance Lambic.

Butelka. Aromat troszkę funky, lekko stajenny, w tle ocet. W smaku kwaśność octowa i tyle Pusto i słabo.

Aromat kwaskowaty, znośny, piana słaba, w smaku cierpkie i kwaśne, ściągające, jak śliwka tarnina. Nie mój typ

Marstonlad (963) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours clear bronze with a big frothy head. The aroma features red berries with a strong earthy touch; very yeasty. Taste is heavily sour with some bitterness appearing as well. Flavours contain, well – never thought I would describe a beer like this – sauerkraut and some mustard in a Belgian barnyard. Slightly harsh mouthfeel with some alcohol in it. The palate is medium-bodied and fairly highly carbonated. Not quite sure what to make of this: I have tasted plenty of beers but never something like this.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 Positiv overraskelse. Dufter og smager hen ad gueuze, men mindre kompleks og sur. Men den er tør og balanceret og gør det virkelig godt. Den skal jeg helt klart smage igen!
