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.

This is 50% a flemish sour ale, and 50% a Belgian Brown, I suppose. It lacks a lot of the contrasting sweet/tartness that I love so much about the Flemish Sour style. Anyway, a pleasant drink nonetheless, with a hint of the Belgian funkiness, and a tad mild.

Hopverdju (1308) - BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2017
Donker roodbruin bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Geur: licht zoet, ietwat fruitig, kers, een klein zuurtje en wat hout. Smaak: licht zoet, licht zurig toetsje, een weinig tannine en hout, ietwat bitterheid op het einde. Lichte body. Medium koolzuurprikkel.

33cl bottle from el corte ingles, lisbon. Hazy dark red brown black color. Thin beige head. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Aroma and flavour is balsamic vinegar, chocolate, spices, wood, red fruits.

evannell (1186) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Aromat troszkę octowy, trochę drewniany, delikatnie palony. Jakieś kwaśnawe smrody. Piwo brązowe, nie do końca przejrzyste, z niezbyt trwałą pianą. W smaku średnia kwaśność, skontrowana słodami. Bardzo fajny balans. I tu wychodzi coś jakby żelazo, które jest też składową smrodku w aromacie. Robi się z tego taki trochę akumulator. Szkoda, bo piwu niewiele brakuje do tego, by być dobrym. W tym kontekście oryginalny "Aged Pale" został zmarnowany.

tomer (3564) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 13, 2017
Draught sample at Beers 2017, smallish creamy head, quite clear dark brown color, light aromav of red wine vinegar, sour bread, spice and earthy hints, flavor of vanila, oak and dark fruits, very light sourness. Nice and drinkable, but expected much more.

On bottle @Ølfred - Aarhus Streetfood. Pours clear brown, with white-ish head. It’s a bit sour, but with hops. It’s quite bad, but stands pretty. It’s a bad, weird taste, notes of red wine and the hops of the pale ale. Not good.
