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.

The aroma has mild citrus, wood, and vinegar. It pours a dark brown color with a tinge of red and thin white head. The taste is mostly a malty sweet but rounds out a little with light sour tartness. I was hoping this would be a bit more acetic but it mostly malty. The sourness is nice but gets lost a little bit.

Pours dark red with a nice sour/tart aroma. Body is not as flavorful with no tartness and just a little but of caramel malt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

canary dog (784) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 22, 2013
A somewhat sweet brown ale is made slightly sour. Both elements seem to be playing with each other, sweet brown at first, and finishing with the sour elements. Interesting. I tried this after I had the aged pale; maybe I can get a better idea, or appreciate it more, trying it alone or as the first beer of the night.

CaraCurtis (117) - Nevada, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber/orange color, thin frothy beige head, with some apparent lacing. Aroma shows through with some oak and berry. A slight sourness to the taste, earthy, some dryness to the end and a bubbly mouthful that quickly dissipates., but is nice.

574deadzone (1420) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2014
Pours a cloudy brown with orange edging and a fairly thick khaki head that settles to a thick ring and film, leaving some dripping webby lace. Nose involves oak and apple cider vinegar, a hint of brown sugar. Somewhat sweet, quite tart, a bit bitter. Light bodied, very active, cleansing drying tartness on the tongue, finishing fairly lengthy with oak tartness. Pretty decent, not a lot of complexity, but it’s mostly agreeable and somewhat versatile.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Pours a very dark red/brown with a thin, short-lived head. No lacing. Aroma is relatively mild with cherries, sour berries, oak barrel, malts, caramel. The taste is sour cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, oak barrel, dark malts, and wine. The finish is slight tart cherries and oak barrel. Light to medium body. Smooth.
