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.

A light, bubbly, ruby red pour. Aroma smells strongly of tart cherry, a bit monochromatic. That quality permeates the entire experience of this beer: cherries are up front in the flavor, and the sour follows quickly. The finish won't decide between bitter and sour, and the ale never really presents itself. Despite the criticism, it is a well-made beer with complexities that begin to present themselves toward the bottom of the bottle. Worth trying.

Aroma is nice but it goes downhill from there. Sweet cherries and a little funk on the nose. Pours a murky dark brown with a hue of red. Head a tan/brown that fizzles quickly. Cloying and heavy on the alcohol. Leaves a heavy feeling on my palate after going down. Couldn’t finish this.

Enyhén savanykás, erősen meggyes ízvilág, a maga jellegzetes fanyarságával, de erős, ám sajnos kellemetlen keserűsséggel, amit valószínűleg a fahordós érlelés során szerzett be. E miatt sajna nekem nem jött be. A háttérben némi karamellt érezni. Utóíze enyhe komlós keserűsség, ami gyorsan lecseng, és gyenge meggyes íz, ami viszont sokáig megmarad. Közepesen testes sör, a 8,5 százalékot alig érezni. A színe viszont egyszerűen gyönyörű.

Dark cherry brown in the glass. Nose is sweet sweet cherry. Palate is almost cloying, sticky on the lips, full of dark cherry juice. Little hint of a sour in there somewhere, but hard to find. Abv is well hidden.

Malty_MacHops (686) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Deep vanilla cherry candy notes. Deep brown with a slightly persistent light foam. Sweet and sour with notes of vanilla oak and cherry. Medium light bodied with high carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Quite good a a wine replacement.

I’m usually not fond of aromatized beers, but this one worked pretty well on me. Generous alcohol level combined with a sweet but very present taste of cherries and red fruits, better to know what you’re going for but this is positvely good on my side. Awesome aftertaste beside that. Recommended ! APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Tasted 2016-06-21. Deep dark red. Clear with no head. Very pleasant cherry aroma. Acidic and ever so slightly bitter. Alc well hidden. Mild to the taste. Kriek meets brown ale.

Pour is a magnificent purple and red, tiny white ring of head. Smell is cherry, leather, and weird yeast. Taste follows, bitter cherry, almost coffee, and a slight yeasty malt to it. Odd but good
