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.

Jado (796) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2017
330 ml bottle. Deep red-brown body with a thin but lasting off-white head. Aromas of cherry, yoghurt, almond and vanilla. Taste is crisply sour at first before a burst of ripe cherries comes through. Residual sweetness at the back end lifted by notes of vanilla and pepper. Lingering semi-sweet finish into a fruity aftertaste. Like a kriek/oude bruin mix that works really well.

ALIBALI (1430) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2016
Beerenlover und absolut different. So s und trotzdem relativ komplex, die Sure der Kirsche setzt besonders beim Abgang dezente Flavourtupfer der spritzig zitronigen Sorte. Dazu der abgedrehte Nussfusscremeduft und fertig ist das Nerdbier. Knnte allerdings auch aufgeschlossenen Frauen schmecken 😉.0,33/ca.2 aus dem MITRA in Groningen. Bottle...klaro.

jsporrer (882) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Pours a rusty reddish brown with a thin tan ring. Light carbonation and lots of lacing. Aroma of medicinal cherry flavoring. Taste is not too tart or sour. Flavors are somewhat artificial sweet cherry and not that enjoyable.

nathanvc (330) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2016
Pours dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy off-white head. The aroma contains malts, cherry, wood, nuts and marzipan. It tastes medium sweet and light sour. The finish is long, rather dry and yeasty. Alcohol is well hidden. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice variation on the regular Petrus Ales.
