A blend of 33% Petrus Aged Pale, pure barrel aged beer that has been aged for two years in oak barrels, and 67% young brown beer. In this blend, the young dark beer contributes the reddish-brown colour and the Aged Pale contributes the slightly sour flavour. Petrus Roodbruin is a typical Flemish red ale as tradition dictates.

RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle, Aikman’s, St Andrews. Dark clear ruby, thin off-tan head. Nose is fruity, alcohol, winter fruit, some hops. Mouth is overcarbonated, very cherry, sour, lambic style. Some malty sweetness. Good, a little tart. Quite crisp and succinct on palate

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brwon with ruby highlights and a large long lasting light tan head that leaves good lacing. Very soft aroma of oak, dark fruit, cherries, and slightly acidic. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a faint tartness. A good beer but it lacks most of the character of a Oud Bruin.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Dark brown with deep amber hues, large frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Nose of soft oak, slight vinegar, soft fruitiness.   Seems like Duchess light.   Soft tart start, malty, fairly sweet but not as sweet as Duchess.   Has a fruity aspect, moreso pale fruit skin with a unripened cherry flair.   Somewhat spritzy on the tongue, body is moderate.   This comes off as a lighter more unsweetened version of Duchess, along with less vinegar.   Not very dry at all, nor all that tart.   Actually, this one is rather boring.   Perhaps a good gateway for those who have never tried the style, but overall just a bit too weak.

Lubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2007
A dark clear mahogany brown with a thick receeding moka head. A nice aroma of ground cherries, light caramel, and light lactic notes. In mouth, a rather light oud bruin, with light sourish notes, some lemon juice, cherries, very short in mout. 250 mL bottle from a gift pack LCBO 2005, BB 16-06-06.

330 ml brown bottle. Date code stamped on back label>

Toffee brown with a creamy beige head. nice lace pattern left on the glass>

Aroma is lightly malty, lightly acidic.

Flavor is tart cherries backed by a dose of cider vinegar. Touch of pepper and oak on the finish.

BeerDaveC007 (14) - Stockton, California, USA - APR 29, 2007
This beer had a nice caramel color. It started with a slight tart taste of mild cherries with a slight oak flavor. Almost a flemish light taste to it.

diabel (1721) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Bottle Deep brown (caramel coloured), muddy body with a creamy, lightly brown head. Woody, fruity aroma with some port and smoke. Not that complex. Lightly bitter, lightly sour initial flavour. Lightly bitter finish (bit dry). Quite plain flavour, not very complex. Lightly carbonated. Lightly bodied.

nearbeer (5516) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 330 ml in Mason quart. Dark brown with red highlights. Tan, medium-sized head that stays with you. Aroma is tart fruit and some slight vinegar. Taste is sour cherry, not as mouth-puckering as some FSAs, and dry. Just a touch of vinegar, the less the better for me. Palate is light, tingly and refreshing.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2007
11.2oz bottle, poured into Rodenbach tulip. Deep reddish brown with a frothy off white head. Restrained acidic aroma, with a bit of oak. Sweet on the palate, with a bit of oak. Mildly sour, very mellow for the style. Tasty, but lacks the tartness that I like in this style.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Mahogany red with a nice head. The carbonations is prickly. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of caramel. The flavour also is slightly sour (not quite typical though). It’s refreshing with notes of caramel and fruit, and it’s a smooth, pleasant and very charming a day on the terrace. I actually liked it a lot, even if I would have preferred more sourness..
