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.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a dark ruby red with a small head but very lacy. Smells very very fruity. Sour apple with an underlying sweetness. A bit of malt. Taste is appley and yeasty but a bit watery. Better as it warms. Gets more sour and a bit maltier. Still tastes a bit like watered down Goudenband. Quite thin body and not much aftertaste. This is OK but could be a bit more flavorful.

scirtes (719) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
0.33 cl bottle, bb 4.06.2016. Ruby coloured, a bit hazy beer with beige head, good head retention. Slight woody aroma, and some malts notes. Taste is dominated by malts, some hints of fruits. Not really sour. This is the first Flanders Brown Ale I am trying, and it is a bit disappointing.

Good acetic notes, beautiful light brown with a good head, light body, medium carbonation, taste is quite absent...unsatisfying but not terrible.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2007
[bottle] Murky brown in color, with a solid tan head. Funky aroma--woody malt and dark fruit, slight vinegar. Mild sour character in the flavor, with dominating vanilla and oak. Medium bodied. Quite drinkable.

FraekkeFyr87 (709) - - JAN 16, 2015
The aroma is full of hops and christmas even though it isn’t a christmas beer. the color is dark caramel. The taste is full of christmas. It is slightly sweet and bitter at the same time. Not a fan at all.

brigg (708) - New York, USA - JAN 14, 2013
(bottle) Dark brown body with a big, stiff tan head., moderate lace. Slightly musty/earthy aroma, wood, roasted malt, sour notes, fruit (cherry, apple). Light to medium body, lots of soft carbonation. Moderate sweet, sour fruit (grape, cherry, apple) and acidic, some yeast, dry finish. Nice balance.

crazy_cat_lady (706) - - FEB 21, 2014
February 20, 2014. 33cl bottle at beerbistro. Nice balanced sour. Red brown colour, whitish head. Lovely sour aroma with hints of fruit and toffee. Lovely sour flavour with some sweetness to balance it.

3.5
shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2005
Very dark, deep red with a short-lived pale beige head. Cherry, cobwebs and sawdust in the nose. The sourness is tempered by the aging, obviously, making it a very mild drink. After trying Rodenbach, this is a little dull on the palate, but still enjoyable.

3.3
wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in Raftman tulip glass. Dark reddish brown colour, very small light white head. Very sour aroma, hints of sour berries. Taste is fairly muted and subtle. Slight sour taste with a dry finish. Feeling of strong carbonation.
