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.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, brown with a reddish hue. Not really sweet, not really sour. More dry with a slight hint of hops in the finish. Light in body and very pleasant and quenching. Spends 20 months in oak vats - that’s a long time indeed. Perhaps one could expect more flavours from that long period of maturing? 070795

Beerhunter111 (23291) - Beerland, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Dunkelrötliches Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch säuerlich, holzig, Karamell, würzig, genauso schmeck es auch.

Leighton (22836) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours cola brown with a moderate, tan head. Sour nose, some plum and ripe fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor, bit of toast and dark sugars, ripe and tart fruits, subtle bread. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mild tart finish, slight vinegar, fruits, leather. Very decent stuff.

Rasmus40 (22174) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle from Voldby. Clear very dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dark sugar, wood and sour fruit. Flavor is medium sweet and light acidic. Light dry and light acidic finish. 080114

Koelschtrinker (22090) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Fruchtiger, saurer Geruch. Das Bier startet direkt Mittel-sauer, alle anderen Aromen werden verdrängt. Das Bier wirkt auch sonst recht langweilig und wässrig. Selbst die erhofften fruchtigen Aromen können nur ab und an im Hintergrund ausgemacht werden. Im Nachgeschmack ist neben einem holzigen Aroma ein an faule Eier erinnerder Geschmack auszumachen. Eins der schlechtesten belgischen Biere bisher. Test vom 9.9.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,3,4,1,12,4 - 4,10

fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2003
Dark amber color. Strong aroma; cherries and vinegar. Quite dry, not too much sour, but with a background bitter note out of place. Average Oud Bruin.

Theydon_Bois (21516) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle split at home, 21/11/15. Rich chestnut brown with reddish hues topped with a decent beige covering. Nose is tarte red berry, light funk, spices, wood must, apple core decay. Taste comprises tarte fruit, sharp red berry, damp straw, light farmyard, cherry skin. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light acidic rise in the close. Ok Flanders red.

mcberko (19883) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a dark cola brown with a small fizzy beige head. Sweet and sour malt aroma, with oak, cherry and vanilla. Flavour of mildly sour cherries, with a touch of sweetness - quite muted and water mouthful. Rather one-dimensional and unimpressive.

saxo (19583) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle. Small head with short duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are malt, cheese, citrus and caramel. A little too much carbonation.

harrisoni (19559) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2006
Bottle. Ruby colour with beige head. Some sour bruin aroma. Some choc. Slightly sour in mouth. Some choc/toffee/sourness. Sourish finish. Not bad. Sweetish balance to it. Velvety in mouth. Fine.
