Petrus Rood Bruin

Petrus Rood Bruin

Petrus Roodbruin (renamed from Petrus Oud Bruin) is a traditional Flemish red-brown beer, typical of the area surrounding Kortrijk and Roeselare.

This beer, with its deep, dark red colour, matures for 18 months in oak foeders (giant wooden casks). Petrus Original, as Petrus Roodbruin is sometimes called, has a slightly sour taste reminiscent of wine.

It is a relatively light beer and a perfect thirst-quencher, ideal as an aperitif or with food.

Petrus Roodbruin is a blend of 33% of Petrus Aged Pale, a pure foeder beer that has matured in the casks for two years, and 67% of a young, brown beer.

These “cut” beers were traditionally made to extend shelf life. The younger, darker beer provides the colour and the Petrus Aged Pale contributes the sour flavour impressions.

Since the 1970s the De Brabandere brewery has been gradually building its range of specialist foeder beers.

Their Petrus family of beers are split into two ranges, Petrus Sours and Petrus Tradition. These include Petrus Blond, Petrus Dubbel Bruin, Petrus Tripel, Petrus Spéciale (amber), Petrus Aged Red and the Petrus Aged Pale used in this blend.
