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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Pours luvverly. Taste of artificial cherry syrup, gently leading to a stoney cherry acceptableness. A really acidic backdrop: acidic cream. Cannot believe this is 8.5%. Whoops. 11.30 on a Monday is perhaps not the right time for this. In any case I necked it. Wobbles between quite good musky, kriek and fairly sour Sour.

Davros (2229) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours dark red with a large head. Aromas of cherry and marzipan. Smells like cherry wine. Flavours include more cherry, marzipan and a very slight acidity. Pretty cloyingly sweet.

Bottle from trade with Douberd, many thanks Christos. Ruby color with thick off-white head. Strong sour cherry aroma with marzipan, malt. Taste starts initially with sour cherries, continues with marzipan, almonds and distinct sweetness in finish. Enjoyable beer.

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Pour on tap at Buster’s on 28th, dark reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought big jammy cherry, tart berry, some slight oak into a bit of vinegar, slight medicinal note, touch of sour grain. Taste was a mix of tart fruit, big jammy and medicinal cherry, some slight oak and vanilla, finishing slightly tart. Overall good.

MrMeadMan (43) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Great oakey, cherry filled aroma. Dark orange brown pour. A little bit sweet, the cherry flavor comes though and blends nicely with barrel aged oak flavors. Really tasty over all.

hawthorne00 (2729) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Ruddy brown with a beige head that lasts. Aroma of sweet, slightly medicinal cherries and stones, marzipan. A little syrupy, low carbonation. Very sweet with just enough brooding sourness to make you annoyed there isn’t more. Lots of ripe cherry, some wood, vanilla, caramel. Sourness asserts itself a little at the end which is a little woody and stemmy too. The finish redeems it. Alcohol is not noticeable. Hard to rate in the "French dictation vs history essay" manner: I wish they’d made something a bit different but what it is has a lot going for it.
