Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
Anyone ever heard of this beer?

A friend of mine just sent me a bottle for Christmas. Its supposed to be something released just once, for a Michael Jackson beer celebration.

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
The Petrus oak aged pale I've had was something I bought at the liquor store--it's unblended oak-aged ale made from pilsner malt. For a time it was only available in the US but now it's in Belgium too. I think Wild Brews talks about it. Your bottle may be the normal Petrus Oak Aged Pale or it may be a special version, I don't know. Possibly Michael convinced them to make it in the first place, any maybe at one point that was the only version available.

A couple years ago I had 2 cases of Petrus Oak Aged Ale and it was a wonderful beer!!

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
no wonder I couldnt find info on it. Petrus! not tetrus.

He told me over the phone that he was sending it.

I obviously misunderstood.

I love that Petrus aged pale ale. It's amazing. it seems like such a simple beer recipe-wise and it just gains its amazing flavor through the aging.

I don't know if what you're talking about is a special edition, I have only had the normal one.

Wanted to order a month or two ago at Monk's, but alas they were all out (of course, after seeing it for at least the past year here, oh well)

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
Yeah its the special.

I'm stoked. I just got back from holiday in Michigan where I got one of each of the Jolly Pumpkin barrel aged beers as well and the same friend picked me up a Toronado 20th anniversary and a Damnation batch 23!

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
well, these are back in the area! Grabbed two the other day, and tasting now.... I agree with Sean, a wonderful beer indeed! The best part is- there's a nice yeasty bed of sediment at the bottom of the bottle... I think I may just add it to my recently brewed berliner....

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
BTW - just read MJ's most recent edition of Great Beers of Belgium" and he states he had Bavik make this first for his club, and then they made it again afterwards. So, same beer I think, no difference between MJ's club version and commercial (besides perhaps normal batch to batch variation)

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
I love the Aged Pale. I've haven't seen the MJ version, though. Might be a special label for his beer club. None the less, you're in for a real treat Ryan.

Re: Michael Jackson Tetrus oak aged pale
According to Wild Brews, Bavik brews this beer and then blends with a sweeter brownish ale to make the Petrus Oud Bruin. It also states that Michael Jackson convinced them to start releasing a portion of the beer straight, and unblended. And Petrus Aged Pale was born.

It was also stated that it was originally only exported to the US, but apparently it's available elsewhere now. And it has turned into a seasonal release from Petrus (Bavik).


Personally, I think this beer is fantastic. There is a little liquor store down the street that seems to have this almost always. So I scoop up a few bottles now and again. I'm also going to try and brew something similar when the Roeselare blend comes out in April. Guess I'll see how it's coming in another year.
