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.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear sparkling ruby red with big creamy beige head, nearly disappears. Aroma is bready, malt, some tart berries, light citrus and slight paper. Taste is fresh, fruity berries, light sour, dry bit tart finish with light light toast. Fizzy carbonation but thin body. Boring

Bottle pour to Trappist glass gives clear medium brown with off-white head that dissipates quickly. OK lacing. Aroma is tart and a bit sour. Taste dark fruits with sweet malts creeping in and a gentle sour finish. Mouth feel bubbly. I am no expert in this style but it seems just OK.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 19, 2003
8.4 oz bottle: Pours a beautiful deep red/brown color, with a large, quickly dissipating tan head. Nicely complex aroma, with plum and red grape evident, and hints of malt, alcohol, and Belgian candi sugar. Flavor is less complex than the aroma (a bit of a let down): a bit too sweet early on in the flavor, with a smooth, malty finish. Palate is a little thin, and very dry. Seemed very carbonated.

psilosophy (773) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUN 10, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron rougeâtre, mousse correcte et de tenue correcte. Vieillit en fût de chêne, assez douce de par son attaque un peu sucrée qui laisse ensuite une pointe acidulée et boisée. Plutôt réussit pour le style, se boit bien. Trouvée à Lidl - Hénin Beaumont.

BrettTaylor (773) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a medium dark brown with ruby highlights and a two finger head. Head falls some, but is very persistent. Aroma - sour cherry, sweetness underneath, and a touch of yeast. Sweet and sour with a small to moderate funk, sweetness underneath, finishes with a hint of dark malt. It is not really rich or watery, but in between, fairly clean finish with a hint of cherry lingering at the back of the tongue.

Valgreen (768) - DENMARK - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle @ døe fadlageret. Clear brown, small white head, nice lacing. Aroma, malty, vinegar, caramel, dark fruits notes. Similar taste. Thin body. High carbonation.

3.8
jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish-brown with a small beige head. Slightly sour aroma with notes of cherry/raspberry, yeast, wood, sherry and a hint of chocolate. Great moderately sour taste with cherry, chocolate, wood and a hint of vanilla. Slightly more sour towards the finish with a bit of hops.

3.3
canary dog (766) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2013
A somewhat sweet brown ale is made slightly sour. Both elements seem to be playing with each other, sweet brown at first, and finishing with the sour elements. Interesting. I tried this after I had the aged pale; maybe I can get a better idea, or appreciate it more, trying it alone or as the first beer of the night.

3.5
swanmann (764) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle poured very dark burgundy brown, even orange tones, with semi-sustained 1/4 inch beige head. light lacing. Nose of sweet fruits with hint of toasted malts and slight yeast. The flavor is very sweet and sour, cherries. Pretty good but tends to thin out in the end.

3.4
tomekboniek (763) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Butelka. Winne, owocowe, delikatna słodycz kontrowana nuta kwaśna. Przyjemnie owocowe (wiśnia, jagoda, borówka?). Bardzo smaczne.
