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.

#200 - Woo! Dark reddish brown pour with a tan frothy head. Smells of sour dark fruits, cherries, and wood. Taste is not really sweet, not really sour but more mild than anything. There are some dark fruit flavors, some oak not much else.

Marrón de brillos color rubí. Aroma agradablemente acético con notas de grappa. Sabor frutal y ácido con ligeras notas de madera. Cuerpo ligero-medio.

Flaska köpt i Belgien, delad med Lilja (tack!). Passerat bäst före-datum med 7 år. Tjusig kastanjebrun, ganska klar med beigevitt skum. Söt, fyllig arom av torkad frukt, mörka körsbär, kolaremmar, mörkt socker, fat. Lätt kropp som tunnat ut lite väl av lagringen. Lite för lätt för att lagra så här länge. Smaken också tunnats ut. Ger en del ek, kola, lätt rödvinsvinäger och mörkt socker. Tyvärr har den passerat sin peak sedan länge, men fortfarande kul att testa vad som händer när man låter en flaska stå så här länge. Har testat färsk flaska och det är markant skillnad, även om man känner igen den. Aromen håller fortfarande upp och är riktigt snygg, och kolsyran är inte heller helt borta. Men kropp och smak är tyvärr på nedgång.

Dark brown coloured beer with a medium beige head. Aroma of cherries and some fruit. Flavor is dark fruit, grape and juicy. Medium palate.

Benters (79) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Pours a clear, dark ruby red/brown colour with thin head. Aroma is a complex blend of roasted malts, some caramel and raisins and a balsamic vinegar like sourness. It's almost wine-like. Taste again is a blend - acidic tartness, caramel maltiness and sherry-like notes. A real mix of sweet and sour flavours. Crisp, dry finish. Enjoyable beer.

KennethArd (630) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2017
Malt sweet aroma of dates, prunes & red berries. Clear brown with a long lasting brown head. Intense sweet taste of red berries. Light body, creamy texture & average carbonation.

Kita (2247) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Aroma of musty cellar, yeast, vinegar, wine marc and red fruit. Pours clear ruby brown with thin quickly diminishing creamy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Tastes light sour fruity and yeasty, follows by oak and light sweet malty notes, mouthfeel is crisp, while no bitterness is felt at finish. Light to medium body, light sticky texture and lively carbonation in palate. This one's a bit too sweet for my liking...

hohops (1096) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Appearance- deep ruby red/dark brown, with a small beige head. Aroma- cherries, tart fruit, toffee, blackcurrant, woody malt, liqueur chocolates. Taste- sticky malt, treacle, dark fruit, cherry juice, some sweet malt, juicy fruity finish.

dorain (652) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2017
Das Petrus Oud Bruin aus der Flasche im 2016-08 getrunken. Von Nase klar ein belgisches Sour red/brown, doch dann am Gaumen zwar typisch aber recht dünn und eindimensional. Leider recht Langweilig und weit weg von Klassenprimus Rodenbach - Schade!

ken1 (2149) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2017
Aroma: Sour berries. Flavour: Sour berries and slight caramel. Colour: reddish brown with an offwhite head.

Nikokaoja (386) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - OCT 6, 2017
5. 10. 2017, Julka’s place, Ljubljana. Ico’s gift. Just a hint of pleasant souerness. Other than that an above average brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
