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.

bobroman (689) - Torun, POLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Tasted on 14.09.15. Intensive aroma of cherry wine. Small head disappearing to ring. Clear dark ruby colour. Sweet cherry taste with delicate acidity. Malty caramel backbone almost unnoticeable. Sweetness, sourness and a bit of well-hidden alcoholic bitterness in aftertaste.

Bottle (11.2 fl.oz). Clear dark red-brown with a medium pink-white head that stabilises to a firm film. Nose offers plenty of fresh cherries with background marzipan, candy floss and faint red wine vinegary notes. Taste is candied cherry sweetness with those subtle sour notes at coming through mid palate before a sweet finish. ABV is well hidden. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Needs more sourness for me - blend it with Petrus Aged Pale to achieve this.

Part of the Petrus Belgian Sour Power 6-Pack - $22.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a deep, dark reddish-brown body with a tallish cap of froth, khaki-hued but hinting a little bit of pink to it. Smell: Sweet, tart black cherry presence layered in syrups. Taste: A sweet taste of dark syrup, a light toasty note, a touch of faint chocolate. A large candied black cherry presence and a striking, somewhat cloying sweetness, leading me to wonder if it’s been artificially sweetened. Starts to become reminiscent of those Luden’s cough drops I recall from my childhood. Altogether minimal sourness. Remains tart and still rather sweet on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Lightly carbonated. Overall: So-so and so-so sweet!
