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.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Dark amber with a small disappearing off-white head. A wooden winelike aroma and taste. The taste is fine but there are no real secondary flavors in this ale.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2003
2yrs old. Small light brown head. Red-brown body. Malty, vinous, acidic, oak. Nice, but nowhere near Rodenbach Grand Cru.

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2004
Poured a dark red brew with a nice head. Aroma of cherry (probably from coming from the oak) with acidic taste. Body is a bit light and no complexity. I would have appreciated a bit more spice or aftertaste. Overall, this is a very average oud brun and I won't be seeking this one anytime soon.

madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2004
Bottled: Dark red coloured. Has a thin beige head. Aroma is a little bland. Some sourness and a little bit of fruitsweetness. The flavour is bland as well. A little acidic sourness but not as distinct as I prefer in this style. Is quite dry in the end, but dies quickly on the palate. A little disappointing.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
Rich frothy head, cherry aroma. Dark clay color. Sweet flavour, also sour but not tart sour. Malty, cherry flavour. Not refreshing but certainly interesting.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 Rerate: 8.4 oz bottle. Pours with a copious, fluffy head; quite lively in carbonation; dark reddish brown color; lovely, yeasty, brandy-like aroma with definite hints of oak; sourish, acidic, maybe some cherry, grape, (iced-tea?) flavors; medium body; pretty malty and dull;

jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 2008-02-03. Bottle. Mild sweet and sour cherry aroma, muted malt notes. Similar flavour, tart sour cherries over sweet malty foundation, mild notes of wood. 6/3/6/3/13 - 3.1 <P>May 2004. Bottle. Good size off white head. Reddish brown body. Sour cherry aroma, tart sourness in the malty body. Not bad, but a bit simplistic. 6/3/7/3/15 - 3.4

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2004
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.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 Looks like coke - maybe my bottles were a bit flat. Malty, sour and (here’s a word I’ve never used to describe a beer before) "tangy". Quite nice, but a bit thin for my taste.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2005
Bottle. Looks dark brown, but held to the light, more of a ruby red. Small white head - long lasting. Cherries and some spiciness in aroma. Mouthfeel was thin and fizzy. Big strong sour cherry taste immediately, followed by slight bitterness. This also tastes like a strong beer, I had to check the alcohol to be sure. I thought it was a little thin tasting overall - not quite enough body to back the strong flavours up. There was also a slight bottle like quality to the whole package, like a slight bottle taste or something, even though the bottle appeared to be fresh and new. Overall, I found this far more drinkable that the Rodenbach Grand Cru I recently sampled, but it still isn’t one I’d reach for consistently.
