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.

ThunderChicken (10) - Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Wonderful Experience. Nice malty nose with slight sour hints. Tart sourness along with sweet malty backbone. Hops balanced but not very apparent. Nice esters of prune, date and raisin and slight cirtus zest.

moelikebeer (221) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy, brown pour. Aroma of sweet malt; also somewhat sour. More sourness in flavor as well as prune, raisin and malt. Medium body. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2008
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.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
(on bottle) Dark, clear, red, small white head. Kærnemælkssød and some maltbonbons too. High carbonation, small woody taste, lightly some sour grapes too. Grat fresh/sour session beer I´d say.

Svesse (8581) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2008
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Acidic, malty nose with wood, dried fruit and prunes. Sourish, malty, slightly vinous taste with notes of dried fruit, raisins and prunes, hints of dark bread. Low bitterness, medium body, some remaining sweetness. A decent, well balanced flemish sour ale, but doesn’t reach the levels of Verhaeghe and Rodenbach.

mjs (7169) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2008
(Draught on 2008-05-18) Dark brown and cloudy. Tan small head. A bit sour and malty nose. Acidic palate. Malts, sourness and acidiness in taste.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Opaque dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma of sherry, oak, vanilla. Fruity flavor with a subtle sourness. Vinous notes, oak, yeast, bread, tart apple. Light in body and mouthfeel, sort of creamy. Very nice and very drinkable.

GMCC2181 (1608) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle from Matt7215! I guess I am not fair to sours... But the smell reminds me of that cheap champagne they hand out at weddings. Light brown in color, ok head. The taste isnt that bad. They just have to much carbonation. I probably should of not rated this beer since I know I wasnt going to like it but Matt sent it to me. Thanks matt! Maybe one day my taste buds will grow to like sours but until that day comes, I have to pass on them.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Pours a red-brown body with off white, bubbly head. Oaky aroma with dark fruit and sour apple. Apple juice-like mouthfeel; a tad thin in the middle of the palate. Light, sour apple flavor with some oak and a hint of vinegar. Clean finish.

blipp (9175) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours dark red/brown with an off white head. Aroma is tart fruit. Medium body. Flavor is very well balanced with tart cherry and light caramel notes. Quite drinkable.
