Petrus Aged Red pours a dark reddish/brown color with a small but long lasting lacing head. Big sweet and dry cherry aroma. Taste has a slight sourness to it, some oak, and a sweet cherry aftertaste. Complex flavors, but good feel and nice blend of all the various flavors. Overall, its slight sour, but mostly sweet, with a nice natural dry cherry flavors.

330ml bottle split at home with my wife. 42101 is the bottle date, whatever the hell that means. Thanks for make it noticeable, but maybe make it understandable?

Pours a dark ruby-brown with a medium head that seems to last longer than I would expect. Smell is sour cherry candy.

Taste is too sweet, too much like a cherry soda. Better than Mort Subite, but in that direction.

Mouthfeel is slightly gritty, fairly dry. Overall, it's not bad, but I won't buy this again.

Pours a mahogany red with a mere collar of head. Strong aroma of cherry... Very sweet cherry taste almost cloyingly cough medicine-ish finish. Medium bodied. Definitely a beer to enjoy with a meal.
