Petrus Aged Pale Ale

This new beer is made only with pale malts, and is unblended. It has 24-30 months in wood, and emerges with an oaky aroma; hints of sherry (a Palo Cortado nuttiness?) and fruit, among a depth of flavors; the classic sourness in the finish; and an intentionally low carbonation. Its alcohol content is 5.8 w (7.3v). ">"Aged"? Many beers have a long maturation, but this one has 24-30 months, in wood. "Pale"? This beer has an "old gold" to bronze color, rather than the Burgundy more common in the breweries of West Flanders. It is a pale version of the traditional local style (which has no name, but for which I have used terms like Sweet and Sour Flemish Red Ale).
