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.

minutemat (2406) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur.Biere.fr. Pours a deep blood red with frothy off-white head. Aroma is deep cherries. Taste is smooth & woody with a sumptuous cherry flavour, slightly tart. Reminds me a little of Kasteel Rouge although this isn’t as sweet. A really great Petrus red.

kaser (4005) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Very dark red pour from bottle at JP Burkes. Think ring of white head. The cherry taste dominates and makes this beer. Very smooth and not to dry or sweet for the style. Almost like a fruit punch. Hides the ABV incredibly. This is fantastic.

thomat (2420) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2015
On tap @ Ölfestival 2015. Reddish amber with a tiny tan head. Fruity and almondy tones. Fruit, cherries, malt and hops. Medium to full body with a nice bitter sweet finish.

MiP (14442) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2015
Draught at KØ15. Distinct cherry aroma. Clear deep red colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is quite sweet. Has a good cherry note, fat but not too much. Good acid attempting to balance but of course it is still a sweet beer.

Bamsen78 (4273) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2015
Draught, KØ15. Pours clear dark ruby / copper brown with small off-white head. Clear aroma of cherries, with some malty and slughtly bready touches. Sweet flavour of cherries, with malty and estery notes and touches of vanilla. Slightly vinous and quite sweet aftertaste. Well-balanced and clean but mot my favourite.

ROSE1962 (76) - POLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Barwa, ciemno-czerwona, rubinowa. Piana z czerwonym nalotem, dość sztwyna i obfita. Kożuszek utrzymuje się do końca. W aromacie dominuje wiśnia. W smaku również głównie nuty wiśniowe, zmieszane z nutami alkoholowymi. Lekka kwaskowość.
