A little too much cherry for me.

11.2 oz brown bottle - code on label 41347

Petrus Aged Red filled my tulip glass with a deep ruby red color forming a 3/4-finger tan and bubbly head that held extremely well. The nose was dominated by tart and fruity cherry aroma. The taste was a rich tart cherry upfront, then followed by a sweet and slight sour/tart finish that lingered. Low bitterness was evident. Mouth feel was creamy with a zesty carbonation and a light alcohol warming.

If you like the taste of cherries you should enjoy this ale.

Not too sour, overly sweet. Not quite what I was expecting.

Poured into a tulip glass, burgundy red colour, dark pink frothy head.
Delicious cherry aroma
Taste falls short. It has a very cherry flavours. Not much else. Almost a cough syrup taste.
Mouth feel is good. Thick and leaves a bit of bitterness at the back of the tongue.

Received a 25.4 fl oz (750 ml) bottle via the gift exchange at my Homebrewers Club Holiday party.

P - The pour is a beautiful ruby red. There was no head.

A - The aroma was over-the-top Cherry. It was so strong that it was initially difficult to pickup the sourness.

T - Two words: Cloyingly sweet. I suspect artificial cherry flavoring was used because cherry flavor dissipates over time and the sourness becomes the major flavor.

F - Medium to hi-medium body. Could use more carbonation. Syrupy coating on inside of mouth.

O - I would not purchase a bottle
