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.

First new beer after being out with an infection. 2010 vintage, $3.29 @ Binny’s. Brownish amber pour is the color as the bottle glass. Pours a big spongy head in my little goblet. Lightly tart smell, not overdone. Taste is a bit tart, but more likely it’s aged out and smoothed down. But a bright oaky palate takes its place. The middle of the pour increases some of the sourness, but there’s little fruit to it. I guess I’d call it sour yet dry. Alcohol is pretty light. So it’s a nice, sessionable sour beer. Nice for easing myself back into my rating routine.

0,33l Bottle at Tuulensuu. Pours brown color. Aroma of malts, tartness, earth, bitterness, wood, citrus. Medium- body, feels a bit light and mild in general. Not bad but leaves you wanting for more.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2018 Tasted 2017-12-25. Fresh bottle. Very nice woody and sour aroma. Breaddish and slightly funky, earthy taste, as one would expect. Love it.

Bottle. Dark red brown nearly black body with white head. Aroma is red fruits some wine malts and some sourness. Taste is malts fruits sourness with some light milky caramel in the background. Mouthfeel is a little bit thin. Aftertaste is nice balanced between sour and sweet.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer, Glasgow (£2.80):
Quite a pleasant & lively beer with some nice tart & sourness showing despite it being quite a dark looking beer & there was some earthy malts in there too. It was a balanced offering that had nice complexity to it & a nice combination of summer fruits & berries that complimented the caramel malts well. It probably wasn't as enjoyable an offering as the brewery's Petrus Aged Pale & I doubt it's a beer that I'd rush back to but I enjoyed it while I was drinking it & don't have many complaints about the beer really.

Kolor: Brązowy, nieprzejrzyste. Piana: Zbyt obfita, gęsta, oblepia szkło. Zapach: Nutki dzikie, drewniane, karmelowe. Smak: Lekko kwaśnawe, wodniste. Zboże, drewno, trawiasty chmiel. Goryczka niska. Wysycenie: Średnie w stronę wysokiego. Opakowanie: Zgrabna etykieta, niedokładny skład. Uwagi: Warka 11.04.2019 Pijalne, ułożone. Zdecydowanie lepsze od Aged Pale z tej samej paczki.

Marrón de brillos color rubí. Aroma agradablemente acético con notas de grappa. Sabor frutal y ácido con ligeras notas de madera. Cuerpo ligero-medio.

Flaska köpt i Belgien, delad med Lilja (tack!). Passerat bäst före-datum med 7 år. Tjusig kastanjebrun, ganska klar med beigevitt skum. Söt, fyllig arom av torkad frukt, mörka körsbär, kolaremmar, mörkt socker, fat. Lätt kropp som tunnat ut lite väl av lagringen. Lite för lätt för att lagra så här länge. Smaken också tunnats ut. Ger en del ek, kola, lätt rödvinsvinäger och mörkt socker. Tyvärr har den passerat sin peak sedan länge, men fortfarande kul att testa vad som händer när man låter en flaska stå så här länge. Har testat färsk flaska och det är markant skillnad, även om man känner igen den. Aromen håller fortfarande upp och är riktigt snygg, och kolsyran är inte heller helt borta. Men kropp och smak är tyvärr på nedgång.
