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.

OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2014
11.2 fl oz bottle into Petrus goblit. Color is red brown, very clear and medium to high carbonation. Head is small and offwhite color, dissapated quickly. Nose is maraschino cherry, liquorice, and tart rasberry or blackberry. Maybe some esters. Palate is very astringent and dry with the cherry aroma shinning through. Not as sour as I expected and definately nothing sweet. Finish is short and very dry, not crisp or quenching.

Listigovers (1023) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017
Brown ruby red beer. Massive cherry and wood smell, complex but not funky. Juicy black cherry flavour, subdued sweetness, woody character in the aftertaste, dangerously drinkable and smooth.

Zilverenmaan (68) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2017
Taste and aroma cherries, sweet, traces of vanilla and alcohol. Little carbonation, mouthfeel slightly thick. Although the cherry taste appears to be genuine, this brew is too sweet to my taste and lacks dept. A disappointment after the aged pale I tried only a few weeks ago.

Zilb (223) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JAN 3, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2017 Bue 4 mois avant DLC aprs 1an et demi de cave. Avec comt affin 10 mois. Biere brune/rouge opaque. Col de mousse beige moyen tres bonne tenue. Pas de carbo. Arme de cerise intense et dacidit typique des bires sures. En bouche un quilibre parfait entre sucre/acidit et une pointe damertume. Final cerise gogo et bois. Ressemble a la kasteel rouge en meilleure encore. Jadore !!!

Jado (795) - 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 (1119) - 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 (830) - 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.
