Petrus Aged Pale

Postby turbo_ale » Mon Jan 28, 2013 11:39 pm

WOW, amazing, this is one hell of a sour beer, Petrus Aged Pale. I bought the Sour Pack six pack, 2 Monk's Cafe red Flanders, 2 Petrus Oud Bruin brown Flanders and 2 Petrus Aged Pale. I have had the red & brown Flanders before, I love these beers with their farmhouse ferments. This Aged Pale is off the hook sour, never have I experienced this sensation, OK, maybe if I eat a whole mouthfull of lemon Starbursts. I get that drooling, mouth-pucker feeling while drinking this Begium soured beer. The more I drank this beer, the more into it I got, dammit, I want more !

The specs are:
7.3% abv
Golden Blonde Ale
maturing in oak barrels over 20 months

When I poured this beer out, it was hazy yellow, nice head, I could tell what was to come with the lemon, citric aromas. The flavor was a punch in the mouth pucker, lemon, lactic acid, and more. It was delightful, enjoyable, and grew on me like a well worn pair of quality leather shoes, I am hooked !

I see how one can "Embrace The Funk" now.
ON TAP:
1. 1C
2. 4B
3.
4.
5.
6.
Bottled: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, 16B, 18B, 18E, 19B, 20, 21A, 23, 27
Fermenting:
Next: 5C

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.

It's been years since I've tried a sour beer, and my palate has definitely evolved since then. I might have to give them another try. I used to hate Belgians, but now I can't get enough of them!

Love this beer! I stocked up recently. I have some 2011 and some 2012. I actually like the 2012 better. More barrel character.

I've got a sour in my fridge now to try to see if my palate is ready for them. Same here on Belgians, used to not care for them, and now I like them a great deal.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

I picked up one of the Monk's Cafe a few weeks ago, but didn't open it until the other night. It was easy to drink, not overtly sour until it warmed to near room temperature. I may attempt to clone this one using the kettle souring process.

I recently opened a 2011. Amazing! It was about as good as I imagine this beer could get.
