Check out the beers below:
Petrus Aged Pale x3 - Aged? Many beers have a long maturation, but this one has only 24-36 months in oak barrels. Pale? This beer has an old gold to bronze colour, rather than the burgundy more common in the breweries of West Flanders. This is the mother beer, used in various quantities to blend with the other Petrus beers, and to give them their unique and very distinctive taste. This mother beer is rather sour with a bite like the best Brut Champagnes. A connoisseurs delight!
Petrus Aged Red x1 - Petrus Aged Red is constructed from a base of Double Brown Ale. 15% Petrus Aged Pale is added to provide a dry character to the brew and give it a slight sour essence. Finally the brewer adds fresh cherries, which are evident in the rich thick head. Petrus Aged Red is a perfect blend of sweet and sour with a cherry undertone which makes this brew remarkably drinkable at 8.5% ABV.
Petrus 50/50 x1 - 50% Aged Pale and 50% Aged Red. The Brewmasters favourite blend.
Petrus Oud Bruin x1 - Dark ruby red, red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders. Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour mother beer with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront. Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.
