33cl bottle at Bierfestival Beerse. Red brown coloured beer with small off-white head and medium carbonation. Cherry oak hinted aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is rather fruity sweet oak and slight sour hinted. Nice one, though would have been better with less cherry flavor and a bit more sour taste.

Bottle from the Folsom, CA BevMo. Pours ruddy dark brown with a sort of pinkish tan head. Which didn’t last long. Aroma of sour ale and cherries. I may die in bliss. Med body. Flavor is somewhat tart cherry and a not so sour brown ale. Sour, but not all that sour. But the combination is marvelous. Label states: "The key to Heaven". Close enough.What a nice surprise.

Pours an opaque reddish brown. Flavor components are not in balance here. Overpowering, artificial tasting cherry sweetness bulldozes any detection of tartness. Ultimately, very medicinal and artificial tasting...a big let down compared to some of petrus’ other much better offerings.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet/tart cherries, some oak tannins. It seems too sweet and not tart enough, but I don’t think the sweetness becomes cloying. Mild tartness on the exhale, with some alcohol heat.
