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.

swanmann (782) - 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.

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 (3480) - 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

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.

motelpogo (8031) - 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

Aquilo (659) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 8, 2007
This one certainly looks good - dark red-brown with a lovely foamy head. I couldn’t make out much of a scent. Flavor was much like fizzy water. Palate is like a diet sprite. An overall disappointment.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Pours a dark brown, with hints of ruby. Sour aroma with cherry and oak. Palate was thin; not very sour, with some definate oak from middle to end. Not very good for style, and I don’t like the style so much.

3.7
spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Oak and cherry in the aroma.Pours mahogany with a light off white head.Very light cherry with some oak in the flavor.Thin mouthfeel with an oak finish.

2.3
thebaldwizard (1365) - Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Nice sugary sweet aroma with a hint of sour. Dark brown and red in apperance. Extremely thin palate. Watery flavor, light oak and just a touch of sour--way too weak.
