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.

Reviewed 3/5/13. 11.2 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a nice-looking three finger light cream color featuring a great texture - and downright fantastic retention for the style. Good lacing is left down the glass. One of the most attractive looking sour ales Ive ever encountered. S: Not very tart or sour compared to others in the style, though a minor presence of lactic sourness and tart apple exist. A combination of caramel malts and diacetyl are at the forefront instead. I could live without the latter quite easily. T: This one has three stages: the initial flavor is slightly tart, the midtaste is a bit chocolaty, and the finish is sadly high in diacetyl. No big deal, I dont really mind the diacetyl presence so much here. Really, the subdued sour profile allows its malt base to shine through; it gives off notes of almonds, caramel, brown sugar, and the aforementioned chocolate. It could have used more fruity esters, though. M: I actually really like the mouthfeel of this one - its soft at first, yet crisp and dry to finish. The tannins are a subtle compliment to the creamy texture, aided by firm carbonation. O: Decent, but if youre looking for something mouth puckering, this aint it. Rather, its balanced and easy to drink, if unexciting. A good one to introduce sour newbies to.

Clear, incredibly dark crimson with a small, off-white head. Aroma of malts, sugar, obvious yeasty sourness, quite a bit of fruits. Taste is surprisingly sweet, sourness does remain though, fruits and sugar do not disappear either. Medium, slick, lively. Finish is fruitier, drier, but also shorter than expected. Overall not too bad, honestly enjoyable.

Ciemnoczerwona barwa. Kwaśny aromat - domowe wino wiśniowe, dżem, trochę dzikich i pestkowych nut. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, ale przede wszystkim- przeraźliwie puste. Jest trochę leśnych owocw, czarnej porzeczki, goryczki praktycznie brak, wysycenie wysokie.

caramel, toast, floral, light bitterness, light sweetness, medium sourness, abrupt finish, light body, fizzy, not ass-shaking, after drinking other beers of Petrus I excepted something better.

Syrupy sweet, some cherry flavorings, to me like a coca-cola take on sours, perhaps better than their blonde and tripel tho

ForlornHope (513) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle at home from a Lidl multipack. Aroma of tangy fruit, slightly acetic. Sweetish start with a little bitterness to follow. Red-brown colour with a thin beige head. Sweet, fruity, tangy flavours with some tartness and a dry end. Body is slightly thin, but overall not bad.
