Petrus Aged Red is a unique dark fruit beer matured in oak foeders. Unlike a traditional kriek, this Morello cherry beer is not based on a spontaneously-fermented lambic beer. The brewer’s greatest challenge was to find the right balance between a fruit beer and a foeder beer.
Petrus Aged Red is ruby-red in the glass with a flavour that is slightly sour but sweet at the same time.
It is a blend made up of 15% of Petrus aged red- a pure foeder beer that has matured for two years in oak barrels – and 85% of Petrus Dubbel Bruin, with added cherries.
The sharp sourness of the Petrus Aged Pale comes through immediately, accompanied by the mild, sweet and sour flavour of the cherries.
Petrus Aged Red is recommended for lovers of fruit beers who want something that isn’t too sweet.
