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.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
Pours a deep mahogany brown, with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sour like a mouldy basement, and musty like an empty attic, with notes of roast beef as the beer warms up, but strangely appealing. The flavours are very different, edgey, with some sourness right upfront, like noted by a few others, the middle is kind of void of flavour, the finish is relatively satisfying, with a tasty sour cherry flavour.

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

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2004
Brown beer with nice red shine and with fluffy ivory colored head. Good complex smell with some freshness. This beer has a smooth mouthfeel with a nice touch of fine malts, touch of cinnamon, chocolat and sirop de ličge = (Pearsirop). This fine beer has a good balance and a fine freshness in the end.

Very dark brown colour with a light brown head. The aroma is sour, the taste sour and fruity. This is a very quenching beer. (Bottle 25cl)

PlutonowyMan (750) - POLAND - JUN 15, 2016
Kolor br?zowy z rubinowymi refleksami, klarowny. Piana be?owa, ?redniej wielko?ci, krótkotrwa?a. Aromat winny. czerwone wino to wiod?ca nuta w tym piwie, jest wytrawny. dodatkowo w tle delikatne akcenty kwiatowe i owocowe. Smak wytrawny, ponownie winny, wi?nie i winogrona s? g?ównym tematem w smaku. Piwo jest umiarkowanie kwaskowe i nieznacznie "drewniane". Goryczka niska, wytrawna. Wysycenie ?rednie.

Grisza77 (744) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 9, 2017
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.

bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Draught. brown clear with good lace. Aroma is thin but clean earth grass, light spice. Flavor is well balanced, mildly astringent, moderately sour, a little bit of raisin, and funky. Very clean and cooling palate. Easy drinker and very well put together. Probably great for food.

darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Pours a murky red with a foamy thick off white head. Nose is slight sour cherry and some dense woodiness with some old sock and bretty nose. Flavor is sour and funky up front finishes with a hint of cherry and a unpleasant metallic taste. Its light but its still detracting. Could have been great but as it was, merely adequate.
