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.

Butelka. Winne, owocowe, delikatna słodycz kontrowana nuta kwaśna. Przyjemnie owocowe (wiśnia, jagoda, borówka?). Bardzo smaczne.

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

A sour apple aroma, very nice for this type of beer. Dark brown in color, with a light ivroy head. Sweet dark fruits with some light oak flavors

Brązowe, w przebłyskach rubinowe piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która pozostaje do końca w formie warstewki na powierzchni. W aromacie niezbyt intensywne, kwaśne, lekko wiśniowe. W smaku bardzie intensywne, lekko kwaśne, lekko słodkie, ale ogólnie raczej wytrawne, trochę wiśniowe. Goryczka niska, ale zastępuje ją fajny kwaskowy posmak. Ogólnie przyjemny, lekki, orzeźwiający kwas, ale taki raczej na początek przygody z kwaśnymi piwami.

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. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-02-2007 17:18:38

This poured murky brown with a light tan head that dissipated early. Has a woody brown surgar nose. Smooth blend of sweet and tartness or acidic taste with toffee. Quit refreshing, has dimension to it.

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 I’ve 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 don’t 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 - it’s 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 you’re looking for something mouth puckering, this ain’t it. Rather, it’s balanced and easy to drink, if unexciting. A good one to introduce sour newbies to.

Bottle. Poured a rich mahogany. Nose nose has sour hints. A thinnish mouthful. Light sour flavor backed up by medium roasted malts. Lots of carbonation. All the flavors are fairly light and subtle but good. A real beginner sour.
