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.

Jado (805) - Camp Hill, - JAN 7, 2017
330 ml bottle. Clear amber body topped by a thin white head that stays around. Aromas include lemon zest, funk, white wine, vinegar and oranges. Prickly sourness in the mouth followed up by pepper, lemon zest and a grassy note. Crisp finish leads into a softly fruity aftertaste. Great stuff.

De trader Joe variant geproefd.
Heerlijk zuurbier. Overtrof mijn verwachtingen. Heerlijk zuurbier die perfect kan wedijveren met de beste zuurbieren. Ongetwijfeld het beste bier van De Brabandere. Heeft de perfecte zuurtegraad om als zeer dorstlessend over te komen. Heel mooi in balans.

Habanero (4882) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2017
Boottled. Pours clear golden with an average white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, funky and woody notes. Slightly sweet taste that ends up being dry and somewhat tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carbonation. A nice Sour. ????????

Bottled. Pours clear golden with an average white head. Aroma of green apples, citrus, vinegar, woodish notes, funk and yeasty notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up being dry and quite tart. Light to medium bodied, watery texture and lively carbonation. A very nice Sour. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Marko (6183) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2017
Thanks Hrabren! Clear golden body, white head. Intensive sour aroma one could easily mistake for a lambic, with all the funky, "wild" notes one would expect. Surprisingly sour, intensive funky taste, toothrot, quite rough all in all, which is most certainly respectable in a way, but kicks it out of the interest / enjoyment zone for me. Not fully, but just enough. Props to the brewery for making it, but just not my cuppa tea.

hrabren (1687) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 0.33 l bottle I got from my family. Thanks! Shared with everyone. Clear straw to golden, small off-white head. Strong acidic aroma, fruity. Moderate sour, malty underneath. Light body, soft carbonation, light to moderate dry and tart finish. Not bad.

3.1
Benters (98) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy golden with thin white head. Aroma of lemon/citrus, alcoholic and sour. Taste is sharp, acidic, sour with a VERY sour finish. Some warming alcoholic notes present and very little hop presence. Much prefer beers using this as part of a blend than the beer itself on its own.

koshack (1975) - Gdañsk, POLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Przyjemny aromat. Kwaśne, lekko winne.
W smaku mocna , wyraźna kwaśność, ale mocno skontrowana słodyczą.
Lekko ściągające w posmaku.
Jest lekko beczkowe. Są nuty cytrynowe w smaku.
Całość fajnie skomponowana.
Dobre piwo.
