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.

Een zeer geslaagd geuzeachtig bier. Vol aroma van zuur en champagne. Smaak: eikenhout, kurk, verscheidene appelrassen, wat limoen en graan. Mooie gelaagdheid, de smaaklagen komen achterelkaar langs.

As far as a sour goes, this was good, but not amazing. No terrible after taste and goes down pretty smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (4298) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Shared 750 ml. bottle as Trader Joe’s Petrus Aged Pale Foeder #222, poured to snifters showing a clear, medium gold color, a presentable layer of soft white froth that reduced to a ring & light film, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was lightly earthy, grass & greenery, and lemony tartness. Light to medium bodied, with effervescence that was quite lively, the taste was similar, with a bit of tannic astringency, and a somewhat crisp & dry finish.

ROSE1962 (300) - POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Piwo barwy złotej, idealnie klarowne, piana średnio obfita, sycząca, szybko opada. W aromacie szampańsko-winna kwaśność, stajnia, trochę estrów. W smaku wspaniale - bardzo kwaśno, tanicznie, ściągająco. Goryczka na średnio-niskim poziomie.

Piwo jasnozłote, klarowne. Piana szybko opada, zostawia lekki ślad na szkle. W aromacie kwaśność rodem z białego stołowego wina. W smaku podobnie. W Alkohol świetnie ukryty. Wysycenie średnie. Średnia do niskiej pełnia.

tomekboniek (758) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Butelka. Lekko winne, szampańskie, winogronowe. Rześkie, owocowe, moze lekko stajenne, lekko kwaskawe, nuty drewniane. Przyjemne. Lepsze od poprzedniego.

Najlepsza butelka z 6-paku. Plus do końcowej oceny.
