Petrus Aged Pale is a Sour Ale matured in oak up to 3 years before bottling.

The brew pours a golden blonde color with a moderate white head and an ABV of 7.3%.

Sharp aromas of white wine, vinegar and fruit – lemon, apple, apricot – and mild wood notes herald a flavor profile that charts a similar course but not as tart as the nose.

The finish is dry and sour, with a slight sweetness and sharp carbonation.

Unavailable commercially before 2001, Petrus Aged Pale remains the "mother beer" that De Brabandere Brewery uses in various quantities to blend with its other Petrus brand ales.

Food Pairings

Smoked, pickled or marinated fish (trout, herrings, sardines), shellfish, squid; salads or peppery style cheeses such as Monterey or Pepper Jack and pungent cheeses such as Gorgonzola and Limburger.


De Brabandere Brewery was founded by Adolphe De Brabandere in 1894 as a farm brewery in Bavikhove in the West Flanders region of Belgium. The early years saw the brewery selling mainly table beers and drafts to local clients and cafes, but by 1950, De Brabandere had built much wider distribution due to the appeal of their flavorful brews.

In the 1970s the brewery introduced the beer that would launch a brand and become its flagship, Petrus Oud Bruin, a sour ale whose brew process included years aging in oak barrels.

Passed from father to son, today, a fifth generation still oversees daily operations, and the company remains one of the largest independent breweries in Belgium.
