Details

Petrus is masterfully blended by connoisseurs. This is made up of 15% Petrus Aged Pale and 85% dubbel bruin with cherries. The resulting beer is an absolute corker. The frothy red head holds delicious cherry aromas, there is almost something a little wine-like about the nose. The sweetness of the fruit is offset by the sour notes of the aged pale used in the blend, making for a fabulously tart and refreshing pour.

Brewery Info

Brewery Huyghe was founded in 1906 by Leon Huyghe, although brewing has taken place in the town of Melle, East Flanders since 1654. Huyghe’s best-known beers are their ‘Delirium’ range, instantly recognisable from the cavorting pink elephants on the label. Their signature offering Delirium Tremens is actually considered one of the best beers in the world, rating consistently highly on beer rating websites.

Brewery Huyghe are kings of innovation - their slogan ‘you ask, we’ll brew it’ encompasses their no-holds-barred brewing philosophy. They complement their core range with fruit beers, white beers, Abbey beers and even gluten-free beers, although the pink elephant will always be a firm favourite.

Easy drinking beer for such a high ABV. Strong cherry taste and aroma, slight sweet and sour aftertaste.
