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.

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours a dark ruby red with fruity, cherry aromas right out of the bat. Lightly bitter taste with a bit of a cough syrup taste. A bit bitter and light tartness throughout the drink. Overall, not bad for a sour!

EvanFriend (518) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Smells like cherries and booze. Taste is incredibly sweet, cherries again, no sourness to speak of. This is the least sour ostensible sour ale Ive ever had. A decent fruit beer I guess, but not at all what the style is supposed to be.

ciocanelu (1821) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 20, 2017
Hazy reddish brown color with beige head. Aroma is really fruity, like cherry preserves or natural cherry juice. Taste starts sweet with cherry flavor but also caramelized sugar, even a bit burnt. Slightly boozy, finishes with a bit of burnt sugar bitterness. Medium body, quite smooth mouthfeel. Really well balanced between tart and sweet. ABV is also integrated well for its 8.5%.

AndreasP (193) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2017
As promised a mixture of sweet, composed both of malty toffeeness and cherries and sour, with an acidic and wooden tone on top. Overall just a little too sweet and fruity but definitely seen and tasted worse.

750mL bottle drunk 12/10/16.
Clear amber-magenta body is topped by a beige/pink-tinged head, initially large and receding slowly to cover.
Cherry acids sit lightly atop moderate caramel and some slight saccharine-like sweetness. Moderate Belgian esters and definite acetic character with a hint of the wonderful aged pale. A little bit of metal and more caramel lingering.
Sweet and sticky in the mouth, the acids helping to mitigate some of this and a slightly medicinal, somewhat peppery finish with a moderate tartness. There are certainly some good things going on here, mostly due to the aged pale portion, Id imagine plus there does seem to be some authentic cherry character, despite there also being lots of saccharine/powdered sugar and light fruit syrup. So a bit of a mixed bag, and kind of sweet, despite some sourness to mitigate it. Its obviously meant to appeal to a wider, non-beer geek audience, which is fine.

Listigovers (1058) - 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 (92) - 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.

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 (1285) - 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.
