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.

mmahut (1854) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours in dark red-amber body with low almost none head. Aroma has strong cherry character, burned sugar notes, woody. Taste has overwhelming sweet cherry sweetness, almost like ripped sour cherries, little bit artificial on the taste. If this is coming only from fresh cherries, it is really strong. Little bit evident alcohol in the after taste. Body is full, medium to high carbonation, oily.

guzgorog (784) - FRANCE - JUL 12, 2015
Belle couleur rubis, mousse moyenne. Nez de cerise griotte. En buche, cerise et bois, sucree. Corps moelleux, tres belle rondeur et equilibre, acide. A priori issue dun blend entre kriek et brune forte (dou le degr alcoolique), mais la cerise domine compltement (mais utilisation daromes, cest pas classe...)

330ml bottle from Saveur.Biere.fr. Pours a deep blood red with frothy off-white head. Aroma is deep cherries. Taste is smooth & woody with a sumptuous cherry flavour, slightly tart. Reminds me a little of Kasteel Rouge although this isnt as sweet. A really great Petrus red.
