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.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a reddish color with a small beige head. fruity, light sour aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with a light sour dark fruit finish, still not as good as the Rodenbach series.

VDuquerroux (1552) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - APR 3, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown red burgundy shining beer ; medium beige foamy head with a good retention. Cherry, light wood, alcohol, sugar. Medium to heavy sweet, light warming baseline, bitter note, acid note. Medium body, average texture, oily, nearly sticky, good crabonation, short fruity finish. Overall, ok fruity beer ; very sweet ; lack of character ; "remarkably drinkable" as in the deScription.

psilosophy (760) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - APR 2, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur marron - rouge, mousse moyenne, tenue asse faible. Arme de cerise, ou plus prcisment de cherry cola, vineuse, aspartame. Engageante de prime abord, elle se rvle vite basique et linaire. Trouve la brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

Andrew196 (1761) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Pours burgundy-red, minimal head. Cherry aroma, inviting but not complex. Sharp initially, yielding to more cherry, somewhat sour, some lingering pepper. I expected a bit more, but not bad.

Bontus (793) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark red, clear. Light brown head. Nose of cherries, (artificial) candy, "poepegatjes", some lactic acid, slightly vinous aroma, massive cherry aroma somehow overwhelming. Rather sweet, definitely masks the sourness of the perfect aged pale. Would be better with a different ratio! Lacks complexity and wood but is certainly better than its more commercial counterparts.

haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Reddish brown in color. Aroma of cherries, sourness, woodiness, and a bit like cough syrup. Pleasant sweet-sour flavor. Very drinkable.

Ysok02 (1388) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2016
Une belle bire acidule la robe brillante, au nez sur la cerise, le bois, lamande sur un fond balsamique. Bouche la fois fruite et tendue, belle lgance, fine bulle, moyennement longue mais quilibre. Une bire de soif.

Bien entendu pas une sour red brown, mais une fruit beer, puisquil y a 10 % de fruit (ou de jus de cerise, pour tre plus prcis). Par ailleurs, la bire comporte 75 % de dubbel bruin et 15 % de bire de foudre ge de 2 ans. Le brasseur classe lacidit un niveau de 2 sur 5, prouvant ainsi lui-mme quil ne sagit pas dune sour red brown, mais on est coutumier du fait sur ratebeer Couleur roux auburn, et roux fonc en transparence. Bulles moyennes, en colonnes, partout, monte lente. Mousse brun clair, joli nappage soyeux. Armes de vin rouge, cerise, ft de chne, sucre blanc. 1re bouche souple au trs bel ensemble fruit, quilibr, avec la pointe dacidit prvue. Arrire-bouche avec des cerises, prunes, pointe damande, massepain. 2me lensemble assez compact malt et fruit. Arrire-bouche dense, vraiment trs agrable. 3me limpression fruite remarquable. Arrire-bouche dun bel quilibre fruit/amer/acide. Longueur qui donne plein de bons moments. Jambes fines, longues. Alcool correct, il soutient le fruit. Finale dans la ligne. CONCLUSION: cette bire me fait penser la Kasteel rouge, et elle la rejoint en cotation, formant ainsi la paire de rouges au top On dirait le Comit Central!!!

Klar rdbrun med et lyst brunt skum. Duft er hovedsakelig kirsebr og marsipan med et bakteppe av eik og karamell. Smaken er ogs dominert av kirsebr og marsipan i mange spennende nyanser.
