wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Tasted on 6/11/14 from a capped 500mL bottle purchased at Bangor Wine and Cheese. Pours clear, very dark ruby red with a thin off-white head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is honeyed with blackberry, a hint of spicy clove, and just a touch of caramelized orange peel. The flavor is nicely dry, with the blackberry, clove, and lightly bitter orange peel all blending nicely with the honey. The body is medium with average, fizzy carbonation and a long finish that encompasses all of the above.

lusikka (6732) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby colour with a white small head. Aroma is very similar to a gluhwein; clove, cinnamon, sweet berries, spiciness and wet earth. Rich berryish flavour with blackberries, sharp tart citrus, cranberry juice, honey, wood and a huge amount of clove, which sort of numbs your tongue. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a rich, juicy, spicy finish. Not sure if gluhwein or mead, but I really don’t care. Brilliant.
