Tasting Notes:

Aged? Many beers have a long maturation, but this one has 24-36 months in foeders (oak casks). Petrus Aged Pale is the odd one out amongst foeder beers, which traditionally tend to take on a reddish or dark-brown colour in the glass. This beer, brewed using only pale malt, is generally considered one of the best wood-matured pale ales in the world and it is thanks to the efforts of the late British beer hunter Michael Jackson that the beer is still entirely pure and uncut. Jackson also named it, and was so keen on it that he sold it himself to American beer clubs. It has a markedly sharp, bone-dry, freshly sour taste and has become a reference beer for the sour ale style. It also serves as the 'mother beer' for Petrus Aged Red, Oud Bruin and 50/50.
