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.

nice dark brown colour somewhat metallic in taste though. I was surprised to discover it’s a flemish sour... I was certain it was trying to be a belgian strong ale. There is a definite sour taste. It’s not that great.

maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Medium reddish brown, hazy. Thin halo of foam leaves slight lace that slumps back into the beer. Fruity nose- cranberry, cherry, fig- plus burnt wood, maple, and talcum powder. Some cellar mustiness asserts itself after a few minutes. Flavor is tart and fruity, blueberries and blackberries, pumpkin pie spice, caramel, and hints of dark breadcrust and black jellybeans. There’s something else... toasted sesame seeds is the closest I can describe it. Although not watery, the mouthfeel is light, and faintly tannic. Pleasant tart aftertaste is a combination of lemon peel, grapeskin, and nectarine.

250 ml bottle - pours dark, dark brown, with a large off-white head. Aroma of sour grapes and malt vinegar and some graininess as well. Flavour less boldly sour than the nose, and more complex, too. Sour red cherries, red plums, and grapes with a quick wave of smoky malt near the back of the palate. Fading sourness at the end, and a very dry finish. I like this one.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle, pours a dark red/brown color, with a tan head and decent lace. Slightly sour aroma, faint medium malts, are also noticible. Slight sour flavor nothing like a Rodenbach or Duchess, A bit watery on the palate. Also slight metallic hops but very slight, some notes of oak. Nice but very light I was hoping for something a bit more sour.

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 6, 2006
It’s like liquid Sweet Tarts®. This stuff will get your gal power-drunk since it has none of the beer qualitites we all love. This will straighten her angles and solve her problems. Delicious stuff. Like a La Folie Light.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Round, fruity aromatics. Deep brown color with excellent head retention. Light bodied, yet a bit unbalanced with malt. Could use more barrel treatment/ sourness. Clipped finish. Refreshing, but just OK.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Interesting that this has such a riot of flavors. Dark fruits, caramel, malt, citrus, raisin, sour grape, etc., not worth writing it all down, not something I want to try again, kind of a mess.

3.2
dj (620) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2009
Bottle, 330ml. A dark brown colour with a good head. Aroma of brown sugar, blackcurrant, caramel and hops. Taste has roasted malt, blackcurrant, a little oak, citric hops and cocoa. A little sourness in the finish. An interesting and enjoyable brew.

3.4
tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Medium brown - mostly clear - slightly tart aroma - notes of spice, nuts, sour cherry, vanilla and malt. Flavor is lively & tart, without being unpleasantly sour or funky. Sort of remindes me of Duchess de Bourgogne only a little more sweet and mild.
