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.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2014
More sweet than a typical Flemish brown or red and the cherry sweetness overpowers the aged pale base. Very much a lightly sour fruit beer. Slight oaky taste, but pretty much this is all lightly sour cherry.

Theydon_Bois (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle split at home, 21/11/15. Reddish brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is bakewell tart, straw, sweet cherry, marzipan. Taste comprises cherry bakewell, sweet red berry, light perfume, cherry xoaked straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Too sweet ... no complexity ... sub par for style.

Very cherry. Syrupy sweet craziness. Kind of a niche flavor. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClaudeB04 (242) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - NOV 19, 2015
Brown reddish colour. Smells cherry and cola. Taste is sweet cherries and a little bit of sourness. Not my favourite flemiah red. Nice logo on the bottle mentioning beer as "the key to heaven" :-)

Suttree (5689) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Reddish brown, with a decent amount of foam. Smells like cherry, cola, and red wine. Taste is nicely sweet, with notes of cherry, wine, some hint of vanilla and oak. Really tasty.

Icedwarf (926) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2015
Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is fris zuur en fruitig, natuurlijk kers en braam. Komt verder ietwat waterig over maar is verder wel OK en drinkt gemakkelijk weg. Etiket is blijkbaar inmiddels gewijzigd.

Thechasm442 (430) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2015
750 ml served in a tulip. Pour is a clear dark ruby with a thick tan head and ok lacing. Aroma is canned cherry, yeast, and sweet sugar glaze. Taste is like cherry pie filling aged in oak barrels. Creamy with a sharp bite. Nice.

Bottle. Pours cloudy reddish brown with decent off white head and lacing. Nose and taste is cherry pie filling. Just a little tartness in the aftertaste. Good.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Reddish brown color. Smells strongly of cherries. Tart cherry taste, but also some sweetness. Fair, but not great.

Aroma: cherry and medicinal -- Robitussin; Appearance: muddy brown that glows red in light; Taste: sour cherry with sweet finish; Palate: medium body with soft carbonation; sweet and sour finish; Overall: too sweet but not bad if it’s a hot day and you want a Kool-Air type drink. Almost refreshing. Would not buy again.
