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.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2008
(Bouteille de la LCBO) Couleur brune noire aux reflets cuivrés. Donne un col de mousse beige court et éphémère. Peu d’effervescence. Au premier abord, le parfum est inhabituel, il s’approche du foin sur, sent un peu la moufette. Le goût est frais et simple, levures et framboises avec une bonne dose sure et d’acidité. Cela rappel une gueuze ou une lambic à la limite (bon, je vois que c’Est une Sour Ale...). La bouche est fraîche, pétillante, mais de texture mince. Un peu étrange, mais propose quelque chose de différent à ce faible taux d’alcool.

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Re-rate 6/2/13: Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks zvikar. Reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma has a bit of wood, light graininess, some malt and a bit of fruitiness. Slightly sweetish flavor with faint sourish notes, light graininess, malt, a bit of caramel and a faint woody note. Light to medium-bodied. 6/3/6/3/12=3

(3/1/08) Draught sample at Zythos Bier Festival 2008 in Sint Niklaas. Deep red with a medium beige head. Aroma has some oak, some sweetish malt and a bit of berries. A rather sweet flavor with some malt and caramel a bit of bretty sourness. Medium body. Quite enjoyable but nothing more - too sweet and mild. 7/4/6/3/13=3.3

Acknud (1082) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Interesting. Dark brown pour with a foamy head. Aroma of soured fruit. Taste is tart with cherry in the background.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear nut brown colour with with a rich lasting off-white foam. Sweetish aroma of wild raspberries, black cherries, caramelized almonds with a woody vinegary undertone. Fruity flavour leaning on the sweeter side of black cherries and black-currant with mild but still lasting acidic undertones. Long fruity and mild acidic finish of wood, brown sugar, over-riped cherries, almonds and immature raspberries. Not a great beer and a bit sweet but I dig this Sour Ale style.

junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 20, 2008
It poured like a cola. Aroma was interesting but any interest faded after tasting. Doesnt even taste like a beer. Tastes like an alcoholic cola. Im completely serious and had high hopes but I just cant believe something like this would come out of Belgium. I will chalk it up to a bad bottle and may try it again to re-rate.

garthicus (2962) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle LCBO - Pours an orange ruby coulor with a thick viscous off white head. Milky-natural yoghurt aroma with malt notes. Similar flavour, like drinking a watery carbonated natural yoghurt with some malty beer added. Suprisingly, it’s not too shabby, but nothing to write home about.

3.5
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.

3.3
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.

NosirIwont (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Bottle. 5.5%. Best before 30.05.19. Pours a clear, deep ruby/brown, with a tan head. Good lacing. Tart/sourish and sweet aroma. Some horse blanket and a light earthy/moldy overtone. Dark fruits, plums as it warms. Flavour is sourish and sweet, with dark fruits,caramel malt, and a light hop note. Bitter, sourish finish. A bit dry. Lingering light notes of rock candy and green apple. A wee bit too much carbonation. Overall good, though the sweetness in the aroma is a wee bit cloying in the long run. 19.11.17.
