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.

Pours a light amber. Aroma is sweet with hints of wood shavings. Taste is quite sour, although a secondary sweetness can be noticed at the back of the tongue. The body is medium with average carbonation. The finish is long, sour and somewhat astringent.

Helder goudkleurig bier met grote witte schuimkraag.. Aroma: neigt naar Lambiek, fruitig, fleurig. Smaak: zuur, zeer droog en zoet als azijn met veel rijp fruit en bloemen. Afdronk is kort, droog en zurig. Zeer goed bier.

Mesjasz (1233) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 22, 2016
Butelka. Barwa krystalicznie złota, duża biała piana. Aromat wręcz lambikowy. Spory funk wpadający w ocet jabłkowy. Po zamieszaniu eksploduje owocami, kwiatami. Nawet doszukałem się tam bardzo dojrzałego banana. Sam aromat jest intensywny i mocno zachęca do wzięcia łyka. Smak lekko kwaśny, bardzo wytrawny i słodki w charakterze octu winnego. W smaku sporo przejrzałych owocw i kwiatw. Początkową octowości po chwili schodzi na dalszy plan, powodując że aged pale robi się bardzo przystępny i pijalny, za razem prezentując degustacyjną złożoność. Posmak krtki, wytrawny i lekko kwaśny. Pozostawia na języku lekką taniczność. Bardzo dobre piwo.
