"This dry-hopped, oak-aged, sour ale is something special. Fifteen spectacular 25,000-liter oak vessels have been erected inside the famous Petrus Aging Cellar within Brouwerij Bavik. The beer is brewed and then aged in these vessels to mature for between 20-30 months! The product emerges with an oaky aroma with hints of sherry and fruit, among a depth of other flavors which make this beer pair well with many spicy dishes. The finished product is the mother beer that was once only used as a blend to produce other Petrus brands. It wasn't until the famous beer writer, Michael Jackson, visited Brouwerij Bavik and recommended that they sell the brand, did the brewer begin producing Petrus Aged Pale for commercial use. We are so glad that they did! Tart oranges. Earthy nose brightened by grapefruit notes. Bone dry, funky, and tart. Sour and refreshing. Big palate, acidic. Lambic characters — sour but perfectly balanced." —importer
"Appearance: Medium foaming off of a hard pour, wonderful rimming of Brussels Lace over the slightly weathered golden hue.

"Smell: A bit tart with suggestions of cherries and a bit vinous as well. Faint oaky woodiness mingles with the grain, very aromatic in a mildly pungent way.

"Taste & Mouthfeel: Lip-smacking tartness upfront subsides as soon as the palate becomes accustomed to the level of acidity. Oak flavours draw the mouth towards dry, yet there is just enough sweetness from the grain to meld with the tartness for a sweet-tart juicy middle. Hints of earthiness show a complex yeast. Faint sherry character as the warmth of the alcohol becomes more apparent with its slightly ester profile. Finishes with more wood on a dry note.

"Notes: A beautiful beer; as the beer caresses the mouth the tartness awakens the taste buds. Very refreshing and a perfect pair to a simple goat cheese. This beer is not for quaffing, sip and savour every drop." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate
