COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Petrus Aged Red is constructed from a base of Double Brown Ale. 15% Petrus Aged Pale is added to provide a dry character to the brew and give it a slight sour essence. Finally the brewer adds fresh cherries, which are evident in the rich thick head. Petrus Aged Red is a perfect blend of sweet and sour with a cherry undertone which makes this brew remarkably drinkable at 8.5% ABV.

33cl bottle. Clear reddish colour with a nice off-white head. Fruit, tart and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet and sour with some bitterness in the finish. Overall, a nice beer but... Not much my preferred style.

The combined taste of dark beer and cherries is quite extraordinary. Might be a bit too sour.

Had this at a fantastic tasting and had such a great time with great people and great beers! This reminded me of cheap grocery store brand black cherry soda.

Sregnar35 (1015) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap at the WOB. pours reddish brown with no head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is cherry cough syrup, becomes more tart as it warms but still tough to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Verfrissend in de mond, kersen, rode bessen, licht zuurtje richting einde, beetje champagne. Op een warme dag heerlijk contrast. Aroma is subtiel, wederom kersen en vruchten en wat geboend hout.

0.33L bottle. Clear deep red with a light tan head. Nice fruit aromas. Cherry, cough syrup. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, some raspberry, but then transitions to the hallmark sourness of this style. Finishes with some residual sugars, and mildly ascerbic bitterness to go along with the sour. Full visit with a thick mouthfeel, and average carbonation. Overall, dearly representative of the style, with some nice aromas, and sweet/sour profile. Doesn’t stand out as one of the best, though.

750ml bottle pours a hazy reddy brown color with a bit of head. Mild cherry and some noticeable malt in behind. Barely sour.
