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.

I tried this beer on September 2, 2009 at "Smokeless Joes" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy golden brown with a thin white head that lasted. The aroma is musty bread and wood chips. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with light carbonation. The taste was SOUR! Moreso than the Petrus Oud Bruin in my opinion. Very yeasty in the taste.

Aroma is of a a white wine, with apples and peaches. The Flavor is almost like a cider. The Aftertaste is sharp, but managable. Great oak flavors.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Pours a golden amber color with a nice white soapy head. Has an aroma of lemon, citrus, and funk. Has a very well balanced taste. Sweet and tart on the front end. Dry clean finish. Some grape and cider notes. Some hidden bitter. The carbonation hits you at the perfect moment. This is a good sour.
