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.

Tap @ the Answer. How many licks does it take til you get you the middle of a... Cherry tootsie pop.

750 ml. bottle, dark reddish brown pour with a slight tan head, no lacing. Aroma of sweet cherries, malt, slight oak. Taste is overly sweet cherry, kind of syrupy which dominates the flavor, light sour and no bitterness. Was expecting more tartness, I prefer Rodenbach or Monk’s Cafe. Low carbonation, sticky texture, medium body, and sweet finish.

dark cherry and woody notes. Dark blood-red clear with thin light-pink head. Medium-thick body with medium carbonation with some fizz. Starts sweet with cherries and brown sugar sweetness. Underlying bitterness and tannic quality at the finish. A little too sweet for my tastes.

Aroma of sweet cherry, oak, sugar, tart fruit. Flavour is quite sweet and only light sour. It’s a shame that the sweetness is so dominant. Not for me.

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours reddish with a tan head. Taste cherries, sweet, sour. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Laten we duidelijk zijn: ik hou niet van kriekbier. Er stonden wat onbekende bokbieren in de schappen van de plaatselijke supermarkt en deze stond er ook bij. Etiket niet gelezen, dus mijn verbazing was niet positief toen ik het bier rook en proefde. Maar na een paar slokjes begon hij mij wel te bevallen. Een donkerrood bier met een snel verdwijnende cremekleurige schuimkraag. Geur van kersen en mout. Smaak ook kersen en mout, maar wat zoetigheid van marsepijn en wat licht rokerig. Een volle smaak dat wel. Nasmaak is licht bitter met kersen, niet onaangenaam. Al met al in eerste instantie niet blij verrast, maar hij begon mij wel te bevallen.

Dark ruby red, beige creamy head that nicely laces this ale. Sweet cherry nose. Taste has big sweet cherry flavours too, a little tard vinegar, slightly bitter, far away cask and barnyard. Medium carbonation, good body, oily dry mouthfeel.

Dark red in colour with a slight tan head. Over-riding nose of sweet cherries. Very strong flavour of cherries. Slightly creamy. Nice as a sipper, not sure I could manage a lot of it.
