COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
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.

Dark brown pour with minimal head. A nice sour nose. Heavily carbonated and tart with hints of apple.

Thanks to Brewfiend for sharing. Pours a nice dirty brown. Nice dark fruit sweetness with a good aoky sour bite. Great light sour bite on the front palate, but the flavor fades quickely. Decent flavor, but nothing spectacular.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 On tap at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. The pour is nice dark brown but not opaque. It also possesses a dark orangish tinge. The head is a froth of off white. The aroma is not strong but it does have fruity or berry hints floating around the ambient air. The flavor starts with an impressive, but likable, musty taste bud appeal. As you swallow, it turns slightly sour. This is not as sour or sweet as the other Flemish I have had, Roden Classic. This is much milder in the tart department, more mansuetude than I expected. Very well behaved, gentlemanlike manners. Mild and repeatable. Lacks any bitter palate. A friendly beer that is easy to enjoy. The carbonation is mild but pleasantly present. The finish of this brew is amicable at the least. You can drink many of these and never know it had alky in there. Overall an interesting entry, no worries with this beer.

Bottle. Dark brown. Orange flavors, with nice lacing on the head. Sweet, with a good roasted malt flavor. Very sour as well with a blast of cherries. Finish is slightly bitter.

swanmann (775) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle poured very dark burgundy brown, even orange tones, with semi-sustained 1/4 inch beige head. light lacing. Nose of sweet fruits with hint of toasted malts and slight yeast. The flavor is very sweet and sour, cherries. Pretty good but tends to thin out in the end.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Bottle. Poured a dark brown body with massive head and long legs that didn’t quit. Aroma is of oak, malt, and slight sourness. Taste is very similar to the above - slightly sour with a cherry sweetness. More sourness comes out near the end. Slightly bitter.

A little sweet and I would rather have a Duchess any day over this. Fruity and a nice example of an Flemish Sour Ale. Page 362 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 297 of his Classic 500 Brews to go.

Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Sampled bottle with stegosaurus. Pours a dark brown color with a little head. Aroma of sour cherries with a woody tinge. Flavor is intially sweet and finishes sour. Not bad for a flemish sour

3.3
stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours deep dark bronze with a two finger thick tan fluffy head. Aroma of fruit, some sour notes, and slight oak presence. The flavor starts sweet, fruity oak, then finishes with a mild sour ending. Good brew.

4.3
motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 14, 2007
rbesg06, bottle at delirium. rich ruby red colour with a steady off-white head. full aroma of floorboards, fruit and funk. some light raspberry sweetness and oak and then a pleasant amount of sourness. flemish sour must be pretty close to my favourite style and this was a good example
