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.

cheap (5792) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 On tap at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. The pour is nice dark brown but not opaque. It also possesses a dark orangish tinge. The head is a froth of off white. The aroma is not strong but it does have fruity or berry hints floating around the ambient air. The flavor starts with an impressive, but likable, musty taste bud appeal. As you swallow, it turns slightly sour. This is not as sour or sweet as the other Flemish I have had, Roden Classic. This is much milder in the tart department, more mansuetude than I expected. Very well behaved, gentlemanlike manners. Mild and repeatable. Lacks any bitter palate. A friendly beer that is easy to enjoy. The carbonation is mild but pleasantly present. The finish of this brew is amicable at the least. You can drink many of these and never know it had alky in there. Overall an interesting entry, no worries with this beer.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Enjoyed via 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with a slight off-white head. Nose of sour cherries, malt, and a touch of dark fruit. Palate of more sour cherries, a touch of caramelly malt, and a bit of residual sweetness. A dry finish makes this a tremendously easy drinker. An excellent and traditional interpretation of a Belgian classic style.

Beer5000 (6433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2010
250 ml bottle. Beautiful reddish brown body with a big off-white head. Strong and complex aroma with cellar notes, sour fruit and candy sugar with cellar notes. Flavor is a bit sweet and sour, malty, candy sugar, acidic, wood, dry fruit, roast and spicy. Very delicate and complex.

onceblind (9399) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Clear dark dark ruby brown with a thin foamy head with lots of lace. Interesting aroma with earthy toffee and oak sourness, with a small smidgeon tof Chardonnay and toast. Flavor has a light sour tone that is packed full of flavor. Nice earthy sweet toffee with soft grape esters and a gentle oak tone. Very light chocolate cereal tones before the toffee comes in with an oaked sourness that is slightly tart but mildly refreshing. Has nice sweetness with subdued balancing bitterness.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from an 330ml bottle. Pours a beautiful clear brown color with plenty of light beige head. Slightly sour aromas of cherry, pears, and other fruits. Nice a complex brew that makes your tastebuds tingle, but incredibly smooth!

DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Pours ruby with a 3-4 finger off-white head. The aroma is oaky malty, with nuts, bourbon, brown sugar, port, merlot, and some funk. This tastes initially like a slightly sweet Flemish sour, but gains a solid merlot flavor profile and palate feel, coupled with some oaky malts and berries. Very nice.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Pours deep burgundy with a thin tan head. Aroma of funky brett, cherries, leather, and barnyard fruitiness. Taste is cherry, plum, nutty toasted malts, and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finish is pleasantly acidic with a restrained sourness. I wasn’t sure I’d ever like a sour beer. This brew is delicious, and has changed my mind.
