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.

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.

planky84 (3086) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Bottle from the 2016 National Winter Ales Festival. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Has a nose of currants, cherries, prunes and red apple which eases nicely into the flavour. Tasty stuff.

J_man (979) - Tustin, California, USA - FEB 3, 2016
Delicious sour cherry pie filling aroma from a medium brown and ruby body with a thin off white head. The flavor is exactly like the aroma. Its like drinking a cherry pie with a touch of sour woodiness. The sweetness is strong but stays clear of being cloying. This gets better with every sip and is dangerously drinkable at 8.5% ABV. While it stands on its own, this is an ultimate dessert beer. This could go with vanilla ice cream or dark chocolate anything. I gotta try that out to be sure though. :)

Scopey (14009) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle consumed at home. It pours clear deep ruby - brown with a medium beige head. The nose is earthy, toasted stuff, tangy dark fruits, plum, berry, big Dr Pepper character, bakewell tart and marzipan. The taste is slightly tart, tangy dark fruits, sweet glac cherry, Dr Pepper, cherry cola, cherry bakewell sort of syrupy, stewed berry and some alcohol on the back end. Medium body and moderate, yet soft carbonation. Interesting, but too sweet for my liking.

Drank at the P.Box in Minooka, PA on tap poured into a damnd fancy glass. Has a nice subtle cherry aroma, pours a deep, dark red, with a bit of white head. A bit sweet for a red, due to the cherries tastes more like a Flanders red.

Quick3Beers (1130) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Pours a reddish-brown from a bottle. Aroma of raspberries and lingonberries. Flavor a sweet-sour fruit leather. A big hit of metal as I get through the glass. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (1230) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle @ home. ramata carica con evidenti riflessi rubino con schiuma quasi rosata. aroma piuttosto complesso ma non finissimo, fruttato, di frutta rossa (amarena) e di bosco (lamponi), zucchero filato, vaniglia, legno. Gusto dolce amabile, acida, senza gli eccessi del lambic, poco/nulla amara, con frutta, zuicchero e vaniglia molto evidenti. Mediamente corposa, carbonatazione poco fine, spigolosa, ma poco per lo stile. Calda ma piacevolmente subdolo il grado alcolico.

MindSlip (15) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2016

Ive had multiple bottles of this beer, at multiple stages moving towards the expire date. It became sweeter and less acidic over time, with more cherry burst flavor and a deeper taste.
Moderate malty, caramel, cherry, almonds.
Dark ruby beer with an average off-white head.
A lot of cherries, really sweet and moderately sour, earthy notes. The combined taste of dark beer and cherries is quite extraordinary.
