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.

CaptainTilven (73) - Nancy, FRANCE - JAN 23, 2015
Goûtée dans le verre Petrus (comme un calice). Couleur marron rouge prononcé; mousse fine, peu persistente. Parfum un peu aigre, cerise marquée; cerise aigre mais aussi confite, bien ronde; caramel. Pratiquement pas amère mais tout de même structurée. A la fois marrante et convaincante car beaucoup de corps. / Tasted in the Petrus glas (like a chalice). Intense chestnut colour; fine foam, not persistent. Smell a bit sour, very much of cherry; both sour and dried cherry, pleasantly round; caramel. Tastes not bitter but well structured. Both funny and convincing thanks to a lot of body.

bierkoning (11394) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle, found in a local Plusmarkt. Dark red brown color. Cherry, almondy marzipan aroma with cherry pits. Sweet oaky flavor with bitter almonds, cherry and marzipan. Sourness hidden behind the sweet cherries. Not subtle at all.

One of the worst beers I’ve ever had. If you like cherry syrup, you might dig this one. Not for me though

Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks zvikar. Murky red-brown with white ring. Marzipan, cherry aroma, cherry, candy and a little caramel taste, medium body, no carbonation and long finish.

Holmen1 (3728) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2015
0,33 flaske fra Høkeren, på hytta 2.nyttårsdag: rubin med kort filmskum. Intens aroma og smak av kirsebær, bringebær og drops (Kongen av Danmark, f,eks). Hadde aldri trodd at jeg skulle si "for mye av det gode", men her passer det.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Bij lonneke met kerst, roodbruin met een witte kraag. Geur met bitterkoekjes smaak erg zoet met duidelijk de kersen. Volle zoete afdronk. Voor mij te zoet, al zijn dr ergere zoete kriek bieren.

AWS9 (574) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap. Quite nice deep, red pour with a lasting head. Inviting wood, cherry, and malt notes in the aroma. Malts, sugars, fruit. Mild alcohol burn. Didn’t blow me away flavour-wise, but nice touches on this one.

Eructoblaster (3418) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
On tap at Bier Markt (Ottawa, ON). Pours a dark copper body with ruby glints and an average, lasting, beige creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with oaky and fruity hints. Its well balanced taste carries oaky, nutty, brown sugar, and fruity notes. Ends with a decent sour finish.

Petkus331 (371) - Redford, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Aroma of a cherry tart. Appears copperish brown, lots of lace, thin white foam. Tastes of sour cherries flowed by mild hay like european hop bitterness. Overall, nice, but m’ waifu thinks it tastes like robotusim.

Tap. Dark, dark ruby. Some nice lace. Nose is very cherry cough medicine, raisin. Smooth body. Tastes straight up like the Tus--syrupy cough medicine cherry sweetness. Even leaves the same film in your mouth that you get from a cough drop.
