Bottle. Pours like grape soda with no head. Aroma is blackberry and a hint of clove. Taste is blackberry and honey and a tiny hint of citrus. Full smooth palate. Very sweet but still incredibly tasty.

Beerman6686 (4832) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2015
This poured a dark red to purple with a pinkish head. Aroma was of blackberries, light honey and some spice. Flavor similar, more blackberry forward, pushing on the lines of alcopop but refreshing.

Blackberry sets this one off, along with the orange. Very nice wish I could get it locally so I could enjoy it whilst at the house...

If you like mulled red wines, spicy ciders, or strong Chai tea, and have never found a beer that really appealed to you, do yourself a damn favor and splurge on this. You?ll be so glad you did.Side Note: Perfect for Halloween parties and World of Darkness LARPs. This looks like prop blood and tastes a lot better.

Brought this one to Kramers christmas party. Beautiful ruby red color really sets up the amazing aroma. Tons of berries up front with the clove, orange zest and honey sweetness bringing up the rear. Taste is pretty much the same with tons of fresh picked juicy berries and clove dominating with some sugary sweetness rounding it all out. Overall one of the better national releases from these guys. I will have to grab a few more next time.

Martinus (3310) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2015
Clear red colour, slight white rim. Aroma of honey, blackberry, spices, vanilla hints. Flavour honey, cloves, quite fruity. Finish honey, orange peel, spices. Nice.
(From draught @ CBC blue session, Copenhagen 2014)
