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.

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours reddish with a tan head. Taste cherries, sweet, sour. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bien entendu pas une « sour red brown », mais une fruit beer, puisqu’il y a 10 % de fruit … (ou de jus de cerise, pour être plus précis). Par ailleurs, la bière comporte 75 % de dubbel bruin et 15 % de bière de foudre âgée de 2 ans.  Le brasseur classe l’acidité à un niveau de 2 sur 5, prouvant ainsi lui-même qu’il ne s’agit pas d’une sour red brown, mais on est coutumier du fait sur ratebeer … Couleur roux auburn, et roux foncé en transparence. Bulles moyennes, en colonnes, partout, à montée lente. Mousse brun clair, joli nappage soyeux. Arômes de vin rouge, cerise, fût de chêne, sucre blanc. 1ère bouche souple au très bel ensemble fruité, équilibré, avec la pointe d’acidité prévue. Arrière-bouche avec des cerises, prunes, pointe d’amande, massepain. 2ème à l’ensemble assez compact malt et fruit. Arrière-bouche dense, vraiment très agréable. 3ème à l’impression fruitée remarquable. Arrière-bouche d’un bel équilibre fruit/amer/acide. Longueur qui donne plein de bons moments. Jambes fines, longues. Alcool correct, il soutient le fruité. Finale dans la ligne. CONCLUSION : cette bière me fait penser à la Kasteel rouge, et elle la rejoint en cotation, formant ainsi la paire de rouges au top … On dirait le Comité Central !!!

Tasted 2016-06-21. Deep dark red. Clear with no head. Very pleasant cherry aroma. Acidic and ever so slightly bitter. Alc well hidden. Mild to the taste. Kriek meets brown ale.

If you like cherries this beer is for you. I thought the cheery flavor was fake but it isn’t this beer is aged in cherries. Smells like cherries and tastes like a woodsy cherry elf brew.

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 it’s close to be perfect! And, of course, it leaves behind all the kriek lambics just piece of cake. A cherry cake!

Wiśniowe piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat intensywny, wiśniowy,lekko kwaśny, ale główne skrzypce gra tu mega intensywna świeża wiśnia. W smaku też mocno wiśniowe z lekkim kwaskiem. Goryczka średnia, mocno wiśniowa, pestkowa. Ogólnie nie jestem obiektywny w ocenie tego piwa, bo po prostu uwielbiam wiśniowe piwa, ale to jest najlepsze jakie piłem, moc wiśni i mega pijalność, a alkohol głęboko ukryty.

Clear dark ruby pour with garnet highlights and good ring of khaki head with a slightly pinkish twinge. AMAZING aroma of dark red cherry turnovers. Doesn’t even remotely come off as fake or medicinal. Very authentic. Very excellent sweettart cherry juice with lots of carbonation. Just a little bit of syrupy sweetness that I don’t quite care for, but other than that... And I juat Can’t believe this even has 5% alcohol much less 8! Very fantastic!

Deep vanilla cherry candy notes. Deep brown with a slightly persistent light foam. Sweet and sour with notes of vanilla oak and cherry. Medium light bodied with high carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Quite good a a wine replacement.

Amazing smell of cherries. Tastes slightly like cherry cola. Absolutely awesome. Deep ruby red colour. Nice sweetness to it.

Ruby pour with light pink head. Aroma is tart cherries and mild acidity. Flavor is more of the same, cherry soda.
