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.

McSherman (683) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
Dunkelbraun leicht rötlich mit beigem Schaum. Geruch leicht säuerlich und holzig. Die moderate Säure ist gut mit der malzigen Süße ausbalanciert. Leicht fruchtige und würzige Aromen, aber recht geradlinig. Sicherlich ein erfrischendes Sommerbier.

jsporrer (1028) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Pours a semi clear dark burgundy brown with a tan head of foam. Medium carbonation with some lacing. Crisp, tart, fruity aroma. Crisp tingly full mouth feel. Light tart and sour but not overpowering. Fairly thin body with a clean finish. Flavor falls a little flat and dry and doesn’t linger much in the aftertaste. Fairly refreshing and enjoyable but not great.

Wixie (589) - BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2016
Orange/brown liquid, small head. Strong fruity aroma. Light body, strong carbonation. Taste is sour and a bit sweet.

Inoven (746) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016
Flesje gedeeld door Joep. Roodbruin helder bier met redelijk schuim. Aroma is iets zuur en kruidig. Smaak is zurig als een geuze. De smaak blijft heel even op de tong maar ebt redelijk snel weg.

Zilverenmaan (194) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2016
Aroma faint, traces of vanilla. Taste only mildly acidic with a distinct candi sugar overtone. A bit watery towards the end.

My absolute favourite when it comes to Flemish sour red brown ales. Extremely refreshing!

oobawa (1401) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Modest tartness with a moderately sweet Belgian front. Little sour peeps in the middle, popping up like a groundhog fearing his shadow, continuing to fret well into the deep caramel fade. Good, then bland, then pretty good. You can find better Petrus.
