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.

pete4999 (1188) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle, partial, at Mr. Goodbar. Had a very vinegary smell and feel to it, but surprisingly sweet. Almost too sweet. Nice beer but a little one-dimensional.

caesar (5651) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Bottled from Lekker Bier Joure, 17/01/15, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Almost clear dark brown color with a red glow, medium light brown head, leaving a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of huge marzipan, cherry, cherry pits. Slight tart, medium sweet. Soft carbonation, medium bodied. Like liquid marzipan. I was expecting a more sour beer actually, but sweet kriek/oud bruin is a guilty pleasure of mine and marzipan as well. So, I like it, but I understand not everybody likes what they’re getting.

seynie (224) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2014
Nice brown red. Malty with a lot of cherries. At first some sour the mix but a bit too fruity after a while as the sugar and cherries dominate the finish too much.

Sucker for the sours and like this one too. Cherry sweet taste. Light sour. Desert like flavors but not too rich.

Appearance - dark reddish brown. Finger head. Aroma - sweet cherry with a hint of funk. Mouth - medium carb. Semi dry. Taste - mild sour flavor. Has a bit of a cherry syrup flavor. The cherry dominates. Not in my favorite way. Overall - not my thing. A little funky cherry flavor. Not refreshing like other sours.
