Beer of the week: Petrus Aged Pale

This was by far our stand out beer from the Belgian Beer Weekend in Brussels so we brought a bottle back with us.

The people from Bavik were at pains to explain that this beer is not a lambic. There are some lambic-like characters to Petrus Aged Pale, it is wood aged and has a powerful sourness. It is more controlled than most lambics and is a very balanced beer.


It's a wood-soaked aged sour with delicious sherry, cherry and grape flavours. The age on the beer gives it unique yeast characters and the oak rounds this all off into a real treat.

If you like Belgian lambics you will really love this very special beer. Available at  www.beermerchants.com and most decent online beer shops for less than £3, it's an absolute bargain.
