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.

Dcouverte dans la Saveur Box. Bire sombre et opaque avec des reflets rouge et une mousse rougetre. Au nez on devine facilement larme de cerise. En bouche cest lvidence... Sucre et douce, bonne bire pour les amateurs de bire aromatise. Belle dcouverte.

2015 BJCP Category: 29A Fruit Beer (base style: 23C Oud Bruin)

AROMA: Authentic cherry puree, very sweet like a pie or a soda. Sourness is evident and complements the cherries well. No distinct base brew aromas, though. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Beautiful red wine-like shade of deep ruby; clear. Small, off white foam; some lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Cherry throughout. Slightly tart up front, but grows richer throughout the swig. Gentle sour bite at first, but fades. Fruit tastes authentic like pie (doesnt taste like cough medicine). Some oak and vanilla character in the background. Simple, but tasty. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; low CO2 with a noticeable viscosity. Lingering cherry flavor. Alcohol warmth is moderate but not distracting. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Authentic sweet cherry taste is impressive, as is the blending of the base brews. Wish it was more sour, though. 9/10

Arkent (1) - Saint-Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUL 27, 2016 does not count
Just the one! Firstly tasted this Petrus, I was just amazed! Starting from an invigorating, saturated, strong aroma, which turns to smell like a cherry blossom, but nothing near to Eau de Cologne, it comes to a full-bodied, strong, unforgettable taste. I thought it tasted more like Port wein, than beer. The only drawback is a slightly increased sourness, not covered by nice cherry sweetness. But, from all the other sides its close to be perfect! And, of course, it leaves behind all the kriek lambics just piece of cake. A cherry cake!

Aroma is nice but it goes downhill from there. Sweet cherries and a little funk on the nose. Pours a murky dark brown with a hue of red. Head a tan/brown that fizzles quickly. Cloying and heavy on the alcohol. Leaves a heavy feeling on my palate after going down. Couldnt finish this.

Enyhn savanyks, erősen meggyes zvilg, a maga jellegzetes fanyarsgval, de erős, m sajnos kellemetlen keserűssggel, amit valsznűleg a fahords rlels sorn szerzett be. E miatt sajna nekem nem jtt be. A httrben nmi karamellt rezni. Utze enyhe komls keserűssg, ami gyorsan lecseng, s gyenge meggyes z, ami viszont sokig megmarad. Kzepesen testes sr, a 8,5 szzalkot alig rezni. A szne viszont egyszerűen gynyrű.
