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.

Boxereddy (431) - BELGIUM - APR 25, 2016
Mahonierood bier met kleine schuimkraag. Aroma’s van zwarte kersen vergezeld van framboos, mout en gist. Smaak: fruitig net zoals het aroma aangevuld met geroosterde mout. Ruim mondgevoel met levendig koolzuur en zurige afdronk.

oldrtybastrd (4888) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a reddish color with a small beige head. fruity, light sour aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with a light sour dark fruit finish, still not as good as the Rodenbach series.

VDuquerroux (1087) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 3, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown red burgundy shining beer ; medium beige foamy head with a good retention. Cherry, light wood, alcohol, sugar. Medium to heavy sweet, light warming baseline, bitter note, acid note. Medium body, average texture, oily, nearly sticky, good crabonation, short fruity finish. Overall, ok fruity beer ; very sweet ; lack of character ; "remarkably drinkable" as in the deScription.

psilosophy (641) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - APR 2, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur marron - rouge, mousse moyenne, tenue asse faible. Arôme de cerise, ou plus précisément de cherry cola, vineuse, aspartame. Engageante de prime abord, elle se révèle vite basique et linéaire. Trouvée à la brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

Andrew196 (1293) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours burgundy-red, minimal head. Cherry aroma, inviting but not complex. Sharp initially, yielding to more cherry, somewhat sour, some lingering pepper. I expected a bit more, but not bad.

Bontus (742) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark red, clear. Light brown head. Nose of cherries, (artificial) candy, "poepegatjes", some lactic acid, slightly vinous aroma, massive cherry aroma somehow overwhelming. Rather sweet, definitely masks the sourness of the perfect aged pale. Would be better with a different ratio! Lacks complexity and wood but is certainly better than its more commercial counterparts.

haggis03a3 (196) - Orinda, California, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Reddish brown in color. Aroma of cherries, sourness, woodiness, and a bit like cough syrup. Pleasant sweet-sour flavor. Very drinkable.

Une belle bière acidulée à la robe brillante, au nez sur la cerise, le bois, l’amande sur un fond balsamique. Bouche à la fois fruitée et tendue, belle élégance, fine bulle, moyennement longue mais équilibrée. Une bière de soif.
