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.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Pours a clear brown color with a tiny white head that fades to nothing and small amount of lacing. Aroma is cherry, vinegar, and a little bit of malt. The aroma is a little weak. The taste is a typical brown ale with some of those familiar sour tastes but itís very thin and watery. Itís an ok beer but itís boring.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Carbonated Ale that has a slight reddish tint to the appearance. The flavor has a sour fruitiness but seems to taste somewhat like an RC cola.

ccex (1284) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
33cl bottle pours a reddish dark brown with a frothy beige head and some lacing. Aroma is full of dark fruits (especially cherries with a hint of oak. Body is medium with enough carbonation to keep the moutheel lively. Taste is sour, of course, but not as vinegary as Petrusí Aged Pale. Finish is short but has nothing offensive. A passable example of one of my least favorite styles.

Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and some sugar, light dark fruits and sourness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light dark fruits and sourness. Sugary sweetish sour ale.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Dark apple and cherry notes, also a little woody from the aging. Crimson tide style red color, plenty of carbonation and tan head. Taste is not exactly sour, itís more like a muted overripe. Which is good because I donít like overly sour beers but have good memories of this from a beer-hole called the Abbey. Pretty rich stuff which almost translates to a full body feel on the palate, yet the beer floats across without really lingering. Anyway, interesting stuff for what amounts to a macrobrew in itís homeland.

drjay44 (3679) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2012
33 cl. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, light beige head, with moderate lacing, over a clear copper brown (SRM 20) body.....nose is light cherry, light Balsamic.....taste is light plum, cherry hints, cola tones, light sourness on the finish.....mouth feel light, light astringency, carbonation low. Although this meets the style of a Flanders Red, it is low on complexity in both aroma and flavors with just a hint of sourness. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6

Bouteille 330 ml. Servie dans Tulip. Au nez, levures sauvages, fruits et malts. GoŻt davantage sur le malt. Mince. PlutŰt dťcevante en regard du style...

3.1
TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2013
Tap at Beer Study. Reddish with a pinkish head. Nose is cherry pie, glue, yoghurt, wood. Flavor is similar--tastes a little off but itís most likely just the combo of acids produced by the yeast/bacteria. Similar to rodenbach, but less clean and balanced.
