What a great Flanders red ale, Petrus Oud Bruin ! Just had one from bottle, it poured with a robust head, so much so it took some time to get all of the beer in glass. Crowned over rim, as the beer was consumed the lacing on sides of glass was very apparent. The beer was very clear, with ruby/brown colors. The aroma was slight, fruit and oak. The flavor was fantastic, sweet along with sour, malted grains, slight oak, cherry fruit. I could consume mass quanities of this beer !

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.
