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.

mejustja (83) - POLAND - FEB 22, 2018
Zapach: białe wino, wiśnia, jabłko Kolor: rubinowy Smak: najpierw słodko-kwaśna wiśnia potem nadzienie pralin wiśniowych z alkoholem; czy też coś jak wino sherry; w tle nuty białego wina, na końcu znowu wiśnia, tym razem tylko kwaśna, przyjemne grzanie świetnej jakości alkoholu Wysycenie: średnie Bardzo dobre piwo z gatunku sour beers. Zapach przyjemny, dość nietypowy, bo jest on połączeniem nut białego wina, wiśni i odrobiny jabłka. Smak bardzo kompleksowy, jak pod rubryczką "Smak", składający się z wielu etapów i niesamowicie przyjemny, pozostawia wiśniowy posmak. Wprawdzie są widoczne cząstki wiśni, co może pogorszyć wrażenie wizualne, jednak prawdopodobnie bez nich i soku wiśniowego, którego to te cząstki są częścią, nie powstałoby tak wspaniałe i unikalne piwo. Zdecydowanie godne polecenia.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2018 On tap at World of Beer (Charlottesville, VA). Very cherry aroma, cidery, funky. Clear red with a fairly lasting off-white head. Sweet, tangy, funky. Medium bodied.

Brandman (2967) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Deep red mahogany body, whiteish head. Cherries, more sweet than I thought. Flavour is more sweet too. Still not artificial, but rich. Sugary aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 Bottle from Bitter Virtue. The sour seems to be overwhelmed by the cherry tonight. Very pleasant though

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Duvel 18cl. Belle robe rubis surmontée d'une mousse beige peu persistante avec une carbonatation élevée. Le nez nous offre des arômes de griottes avec des notes de vieil alcool. Le goût est à l'image du nez nous faisant penser au Kriek avec une agréable douceur et chaleur venant de l'alcool se prolongeant sur le palais. Une très bonne bière rafraîchissante et chaleureuse!16/20

LazyPyro (1929) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2018
33cl bottle ~1 year old. Pours a dark reddy brown with a small tan head, dissipating. Aroma of sweet cherries. Taste is sweet and sour but more on the sweet side, sugar, mostly cherries, very dry. Medium body and carbonation, alcohol pretty well hidden at 8.5% with just a hint of warming sensation. I liked this a lot more than the Aged Pale.

appiantiqua (294) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 2, 2018
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Duvel 18cl. Température de début 7 à 8°. Très belle robe rubis surmontée d'une mousse à fine bulles persistante; carbonatation élevée. Nez plaisant nettement sur des arômes de cerises et de mou. Le goût est dominé par des saveurs de griottes et la palette se situe globalement entre un Kriek et une vieille brune flamande; on relève aussi des notes pâtissières. Le palais est long et rafraîchissant avec une agréables douceur. Une bière savoureuse et suave. 16/20
