JBPortland (1251) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 27, 2015
375ml bottle pours semi clear bright ruby red with small finger of fizzy head. Nose is big spice mix, cinnamon, holiday spice, some fruity cranberry and cherry. Taste has pretty low tartness, touch of sweet cherry and cranberry juice, rounded spice mix, nutmeg, light funk and faint oaky vanilla. Finishes semi sweet, floral berry juice, some dry oak, spice, cinnamon, low tartness.

madvike (3119) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle - Pours hazy red with a ring of white head. Nose is soapy and floral, with light baking spice and some berry sweetness. Taste is similar--soapy, floral, and tart berries. Just not my thing. Thin, with little carbonation. Just not my favorite flavor combo.

Opaque rose colour, with a medium pink head. Fresh cranberry aroma at first, which gives way to cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices, with an overlying saison funk. Sour with sweet spicy notes. Finishes refreshing and sour. Lovely!

Zlotta (444) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - 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.

375 ml bottle. "Holiday/2014"
Pours rose red color with a small head. Herbal, yeasty, dark berry notes and some spices too. Flavor is quite glogg-like, spicy and berry-dominant, some yeasty notes with subtle fruity notes. Decent.
