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.

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.

Tym razem Petrus leżakował sobie w beczce z wiśniami. Jak dla mnie jest to najlepsze piwo z tej serii. Choć nie powala, piło się całkiem przyjemnie. W aromacie głównie wiśnie. W smaku ciemne słody, kwaskowatość i słodkie wiśnie. Goryczki niewiele, dużo słodkości. Alkohol dobrze w tym wszystkim ukryty. Dość spore wysycenie. Piwo całkiem ok.

Najmocniejsze piwo w zestawie który łaskaw był puścić na lokalny rynek niemiecki dyskont. Zgodnie z opisem to Oud Bruin leżakowane z wiśniami. Kolor ciemny, brązowy. Piana beżowa z drobnych i średnich pęcherzy szybko opadła do minimalnej warstwy na powierzchni. W aromacie czuć wiśnię, sherry w stylu …. starych „dobrych” nalewek. W smaku mamy ciemne słody, kwaskowość kontrowaną sokiem z wiśni. Piwo jest i słodkie i kwaskowe zarazem z wyczuwalną nutą cierpkich owoców (pestek). Goryczka jest minimalna, podbita alkoholem i średnim do wysokiego wysyceniem. Mocne (istotnie) piwo godne uwagi, aczkolwiek klasyczny Oud Bruin jest zdecydowanie lepszy.

matbli (97) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle 330 ml from Lidl, pours ruby with pink fast falling head. In aroma almost only cherries with some metalic notes on the beginning. High sweetness with medium sourness and very light hoppy bitterness. Nice as a desert beer, but personally I find it to sweet. Alcohol isn?t noticable at all, and the beer is quite refreshing for that abv.

Aromat wi?niowy, likierowy, lekko wiejski. Ogólnie do?? intensywny. Barwa wi?niowa. Piana zerowa, klarowne. W smaku wyra?nie kwa?ne, wi?niowe. Alkohol rozgrzewa prze?yk w przyjemny sposób. Goryczka ?rednia, wysycenie niskie. Jak dla mnie ciekawe, ale piwa kwa?ne nie nale?? do moich ulubionych.
