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.

johnadam2002 (529) - Hainesport, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Poured brown with an off white head. Aroma of sour cherries. Flavor started off some sweet fruit, mostly cherries, and finished with a sweet oak texture. Different but nothing special.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Darker brown with a hint of red. Aroma has some light oak and sourness with a hint of cherries. Flavor is a rather subdued, tart, & woody mix of lighter malts. Starts bigger, but fades. Hints of dark fruit. Not bad, just a bit dull for a Flemish Sour.

Deep reddy brown. Bready aroma, Anna detects sourness too. Watery, only an occasional sour taste. Much better after it warms, but still a bit disappointing.

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Pours a molasses cola w/ no head worth mentioning. Looks like flat cola mixed with motor oil. Tastes sour. Tastes like something went wrong. I almost wonder if I got a bad bottle. This stuff sucks. Drain pour.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Pours a dark brown with thin beige head. Strong aroma of oaky wood and dark fruit. Tart and very sweet tasting. More sour than I prefer.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Cola colored with a fleeting tan head. Nice aroma is mostly oak and earthy cellar. Light/medium body. Light pit fruit flavor here with some caramel sweetness. Has a mildly sour wet wood taste to finish. Not too bad by itself , but it was weak compared to some of the other sours we quaffed the first week of march’07...357

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
330ml botle. Pours a dark, opaque brown. Lots of carbonation, small frothy head that dissipates quickly. Smells very malty, with a mix of fruit, mostly banana. Palette is smooth, but quite tangy. Flavour is complex and quite nice. Can definitely taste the oak aging.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours clear and deep, reddish brown with intense copper highlights and a medium-sized, light tan head that is very short-lived. The aroma is fruity, woody, and a little sour - like currants and treacle. The flavor starts acidic with a touch of sweetness. There is also some toasty maltiness and a touch of breadiness, after the initial, subtle sourness. The middle of the tongue finds an interesting mix of grainy, toasty, semi-sweet malts with sour fruit (acetic, not citrus). The middle and finish have a strong, earthy, musty note. The mouthfeel is medium in body and quite effervescent. The vigorous carbonation is almost too much on the tip of the tongue, but it complements the flavors throughout to make the beer taste more refreshing. Overall, very nice - simple and drinkable, yet interesting from the mix of toasty and sour flavors.
