Zlotta (315) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2015
0,375 l bottle from Rudat, holiday 2014 (4.5% abv). Clear, pale red with a small, soapy, slowly diminishing, white to pink head. Sourish-fruity aroma of cranberry, raspberry, cinnamon, rose hip, orange and redcurrant. Sourish-fruity taste of cranberry, redcurrant, raspberry, rose hip, cinnamon and hints of orange, followed by a short, slightly tart finish. Thin to medium body, spritzy and slightly astringent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. The fruitiness and slight acidity produce a nicely balanced and highly refreshing beer. Tastewise, the regular version is closer to my preferences but this is nevertheless good.

Batch Holiday 2014 - Pours deep red with a small white head. Aroma of cranberries, tartness, hints of funky yeastiness, spices, cinnamon, glögg and earthiness. Taste is smooth, slightly funky and tartish with some cranberries, spices, cinnamon, glögg and sourness. Finish is heavy with spices, some berries and funky yeastiness. Almost like a cold glögg with some sourness. Interesting.
