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.
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.
Petrus Blond is a top-fermented beer.
Petrus Blond is brewed with water, a house yeast, barley malt, sugar and hops.
Colour & Transparency

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.
