Traditional Blond


The Beer

The Petrus family from Brouwerij De Brabandere unveils a world of aromas and flavours. Petrus Blond is a classic from a Petrus Tradition range that also includes the Dubbel and Tripel.

The hop cones adorning the gold-coloured label tell the story of the beer inside.

Three different aroma hop varieties contribute to the taste of this thirst-quencher and provide a pleasantly refreshing finish.

This moderately light blonde fits any occasion, making a great aperitif while also being suitable as a thirst-quencher or alongside a wide range of dishes.

Mild, fresh and fruity is the best way to describe Petrus Blond.

Alongside the Petrus Tradition range there are the well-known Petrus ‘sour beers’. Petrus Roodbruin, Aged Red and Aged Pale are pure foeder beers or blends of foeder beers.

Their maturation in big oak foeders (casks) plays a big role in determining their aroma and taste.

Other successful beers from Brouwerij De Brabandere are the Bavik Super Pils, invariably found in cafés in the Kortrijk area, and the blonde Kwaremont (named after a famous cycle race climb) that scores highly with riders, bike tourists and cycling fans.

Colour & Transparency

In the glass, this beer takes on a coppery-blond colour underneath a delicate head of froth.


    Serving Temperature

    6-8°C /42-47°F

    Serving Glass

    The Petrus beers are served in an elegant, long-stemmed, tulip-shaped glass bearing the Petrus logo that does full justice to the beers’ aromas.


      Character, Tastes & Aromas

      This is a mildly sweet thirst-quencher with a refreshingly bitter aftertaste. There are striking aromas of caramel from the malt.

      Citrus flavours come from the hops. The finish is short and dry.


        Culinary

        There are very few dishes that don’t go with this versatile beer, which is recommended with salads, steak and fries, as well as hard cheeses.

        Explore with different tastes and aromas to find your own favourite pairing with this beer.


        Keeping and Storage

        The bottled beer can be stored for 24 months. In the barrel, it will keep for 6 months.

        Petrus Blond should be stored in a dark and cool environment. Prolonged ageing of this beer will not improve the taste.

        Petrus Aged Pale
        Petrus Aged Pale is the odd one out amongst foeder beers, which traditionally tend to take on a reddish or dark-brown colour in the glass. This beer, brewed using only pale malt, is generally considered one of the best wood-matur ...

        Petrus Dubbel
        The strong brown dubbel, a beer style that originated in abbey breweries, has evolved into a generic term. Call ‘Dubbel!’ across a café counter and, without exception, you will be served a quite strong, brown beer in which the mal ...

        Petrus Tripel
        A tripel is a strong beer, usually a blonde, with a good balance between malt and hops in its taste. And a modern tripel is fruity and dry with plenty of carbon dioxide and a fine bitterness. Tripels are often dangerously quaffab ...

        Petrus Aged Red
        Petrus Aged Red is a unique dark fruit beer matured in oak foeders. Unlike a traditional kriek, this Morello cherry beer is not based on a spontaneously-fermented lambic beer. The brewer’s greatest challenge was to find the right ...

        Bavik Super Pils
        Bavik Super Pils’ name did not come out of the blue. In most pils beers, a higher-density wort is brewed and water is added after fermentation using the so-called ‘high gravity’ method. But this is not how De Brabandere goes abou ...
