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 connoisseurs delight! The only one of its kind on the U.S. market.

AshtonMcCobb (6071) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2016
On keg at the Bow Bar. Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - as expected, wood and cider vinegar notes. Taste - woody, cidery and so lovely and funky. A bit of apple brandy at the back. Palate - light to medium bodied with a long lean tangy middle section that continues through the finish. Overall - lovely. Lovely. Lovely!

ALIBALI (1283) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2016
Getrunken im CAFE DE KOFFER in Groningen. 25cl/3,90 vom Fass. Definitiv hart suerlich, mit viel Kruteraromatik. Abgerundet wird das extreme Geschmackserlebnis von einem leichten Kmmelflair. Wild und ppig weinig. Willst du auf den Weinfassboden? Dann komm herunter 😀!!!

Lacidit utilise en majeur, ne donnera jamais naissances de bonnes bires. Et la raison en est simple, lacidit masque et tue tous les autres armes. Lacidit, doit rester une exhausteur de got et doit tre manie avec prcaution en matrisant sa puissance Nous en avons une fois de plus un triste exemple sur cette Petrus Aged Pale. Visuellement, celle ci prsente une belle robe dore, parfaitement translucide avec une multitude de fines bulles. On regrettera cependant labsence de mousse. Au nez, les armes sont ports sur la pomme tirant lgrement sur la barrique (provenant du passage de plusieurs mois en fut de chne). Lacidit est dj bien prsente. La premire attaque est trs certainement la plus apprciable car la moins acide. Celle-ci se fait sur des notes de pomme citronnes. En 2me bouche, lacidit, cyclonique, dvaste tout sur son passage. Le palais en est anesthsi. En se concentrant sur la dgustation, il est tout de mme possible dentrevoir des armes de pamplemousse et citron. Mais aucune mlodie, aucune variation nest prsente. Le final voit lacidit lgrement flchir et des armes de cerise pointer leur nez sur une lgre astringence. La maturation en ft de chne ne sexprime que trs peu, ce qui est une dception. Nous sommes sur un dsquilibre total avec au final une bire qui ne prsente que peu dintrts sauf de retrouver les sensations acidules des bonbons de notre enfance.
