Petrus Aged Pale

Type: Sour
Origin: Belgium
Price: $hit (maybe $10?)
ABV: 7.3%

Seriously, I haven't been AWOL all this time. Your friendly east coast correspondent has been staggering around doing his best to widely sample the brews of the east and holding up until inclement weather (presently well below freezing) to sit down with some hot beverage (maple buttered rye whiskey anyone?) to capture the jaunt. So here goes:

Ahh, another night at the Rabbit Club. This hole of a bar has more sours than they have business hording, but at least it's a nice go-to if you're looking for a new sour. They probably have several I still haven't tried. I don't remember how much I paid, but when I did it felt like I was throwing a bunch of cash down a hole just the same, enjoyably though. Clearly I had a great time.

This was a super light bodied and MEGA sour mess of a sour at first. After I adjusted to the sourness (it takes a while to get used to the ways of the rabbit hole), it became pleasantly drinkable. Still it was incredibly light bodied, but I definitely recall some fruity hints in there. Definitely not the beer for anyone but a sour fiend though.

Compare with my first review.
