Petrus Roodbruin is a blend of 33% Petrus Aged Pale, pure foeder beer that has been aged for two years in oak foeders, and 67% young brown beer. In this blend, the young dark beer contributes the reddish-brown colour, and the Aged Pale contributes the slightly sour flavour. Petrus Roodbruin is a typical traditional Flemish red ale as tradition dictates.
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.
