Keg @ Beer Run. Deep red, small head. The nose is stron tart cheery, mulled wine spice. Honeyed brown bread. Caramelized oranges. The taste is orange zest, honey, pear, forest fruits. More mulled wine. Sweet, light body. Moderate carb considering the style. Overall, not my thing. Very much like a wine cooler.

Beautiful red-purple pour with gentle carbonation. Fairly heavy on the clove with some peppery notes potpourri and light blackberry. Flavor is spicy clove upfront, fading to blackberry wine with orange notes. Mild to moderate sweetness with lingering berry/orange citrus. Medium palate. Very earthy feel with the clove. Not exactly my thing, but unique. I think they captured what they were going for.

Bottle @ Armin’s place, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a clear, dark reddish purple appearance with a pink head. Big clove, apple berry, honey, a bit woody, sweet aroma. Spicy clove, vanilla, tree bark, honey, berry, pear flavor. A little too spicy for my taste.

Taste is a mix of lots of orange zest, clove, hints of earth, nice honey, vanilla in there, some slight blackberry in there, finishing fairly sweet, spicy. Interesting for sure,

Split a bottle with some friends. Poured a real clear bloody color with a pink head. Aroma was immediately an overwhelmingly strong clove one, but wasn’t so overpowering later on. Flavor was nice blackberry notes, with some light orange character, cloves are there.

18 oct 2013, bottle. Bright cranberry, clear, no bubbles. Nose is exactly like clove cigarettes. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Tastes of cloves and cranberry juice. Great for what it is.

Big clove and blackberry notes. The clove was a bit overwhelming at first but it mellowed out after the first sip.
