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.

Brune foncée avec des reflets rubis, léger col de mousse beige. Nez boisé et cerise léger. Attaque acide et un peu amère, compensée par un peu de sucre, le côté boisé domine largement mais on décèle quelques notes de houblons herbeux. Corps léger, très bonne longueur. Une honnête vieille brune mais on trouve bien meilleur...

I am a huge fan of sours and this one is right up there. It has wine like aroma and flavor. Pours a deep red brown with light colored head. It is a little mild in terms of its sourness but really enjoyable. The aroma would lead you to believe that it is more sour than it actually is. Very well done.

Poured a dark brown with ruby tints and a thin tan head that dissipated quickly to little head or lacing. Aroma was a mild hint of hoppy sour apples and malty dark fruit. Mouthfeel was a pour attempt at a Flemish Sour....slightly sour on the onset, followed by slightly sweet, but never quite got there on either. Flavor was a weak continuation of the scents of the nose, and the finish was short and slightly dry. Ok, but by no means great

Not bad for a sour but I’m still trying to get used to them. Dark color in the glass it smells like cola and berries. Taste has a mild sour fruit with spme cherries. Tart on the finish.

Bottle. Pours opaque dark reddish black with small white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, port wine, prunes, gravy and oak barrels. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and medium sour. Body is light oily with soft carbonation. Finish is long and very sour with notes that follow the nose.

A- deep reddish brown body with thin white head. Head fades and leaves behind plenty of lacing in the glass. S- sweet/sour smell. Nice malty backbone. T- Sweet dark fruity taste upfront with good malt backbone. The taste then becomes somewhat tart and sour. Finish is similar to the sweet fruity beginning. P- Low carbonation with a a thin-somewhat watery mouthfeel. Goes down very smooth. O- This was interesting and very different. I’d order it again. Sweet and sour but not as intense as a fruit lambic.

bottle pour..dark brown pour..solid amount of carbonation on sides rising up..little film like head that sticks around..aroma is wild black cherry with a bit of sourness as well..not getting much from the oak barrel..taste is same as the aroma..overall expecting a bit more from this..pretty thin..not much intrigue..
