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.

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottled@Tuulensuu, Tampere (old backlog). Hazy coppery amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some wood, mild cherries, floral notes and some slight sourness. Flavour is quite tart fruits/berries along with some wood, mildyeast as well as some earthy notes. The dry tartness manages to hide the alcohol rather well in this one.

yngwie (15188) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. A more or less red beer, topped by a light beige head of moderate size. The aroma has lots of laquer at first, then cherries, cherry pits and marzipan kicks in. Gets quite pleasant after a while. The flavor has a little sweetness, but it’s mostly quite sourish. Some oaked notes, with marzipan, almond and cherries. Some alcohol too. Full body, dryish and quite pleasantly carbonated. Well, it’s very nice in a way, still far from a favorite of mine. 140418

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.
