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.

An earthen, nicely bitter taste. Some basement aromas and hops, lemon and herbs. I like bitter beers, so very much enjoyed this one!

.75l bottle from Beerbox. Pours cloudy yellowish orange with low head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, malts, banana notes, spices, dried fruits, hint of vinegar, sourish, apple and wet wool. Flavor is mostly same. Easy to drink, nice palate.

Pours clear gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Funky lemon and lactose aromas. Soft with sweet hay and with lactic citrus front to back. Lasting bitter oak and pith finish.
Earlier Rating: 8/17/2008 Total Score: 4.1
Pours bright gold into a snifter. Bright white head leaves sheet lacing as it recedes to skim surface. Sour citrus aromas. Full sour fruit. Puckering yet crisp.

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 niektórych 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...

kluczbork (517) - 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.

Soar, oaky and slight bitterness. Fizzy and great mouth feel. Flavors linger wonderfully.
