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.

arturteen (79) - 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 (287) - 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 (298) - 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 (331) - 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.

acemilan (460) - POLAND - APR 4, 2017
Pwio o barwie złotej z ładną dość pianą, niezbyt trwałą ale tworzącą lacing. Aroamt intensywny (w końcu)- jabłka, jasne owoce, kwach. Smak słodki z wytrawnością, troszkę winny, wysoko wysycony. Dla niektrych aż za mocny może być kwach, mi pasuje. Pytanie o styl i co chcemy osiągnąć? Tu osiągnięto fajny orzeźwiający kwach- czy o to chodziło? Na bank latem w 30 stopniach ugasi pragnienie i nie zmuli...

immunitycheater (63) - Żywiec, POLAND - APR 3, 2017
EXPIRY DATE: 14/03/2019 AROMA: Ocet jabłkowy, kwaskowy, jabłka, wytrawne. APPEARANCE: Piana niska, nie zostaje na szkle, barwa złoto- bursztynowa, dość klarowne. TASTE: Wyraźny ocet jabłkowy, kwaskowość, wysoko nasycone, czuć bąbelki jak w szampanie na języku. Wytrawny, słodki, kwaśny z charakterem octu winnego. PALATE: Wysoko nasycone, goryczka raczej słaba, bardziej posmak octu o ktrym wspominam po raz trzeci, lecz każdy kto pił kiedyś ocet jabłkowy od razu będzie wiedział o czym mowa. OVERALL: Ciekawe piwo, na pewno warte sprbowania, choć nie zrobiło na mnie zbyt wielkiego wrażenia.
