3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75 cl. bottle, shared. Sampled both at room temperature and at 70 degrees C as recommended on the label. Unclear, dark red colour with a dense, pink head. Sweet aroma with ripe cherries, wood, spices - cinnamon and other "Christmas" spices, almond and a light hint of alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Long lasting sweet finish with cherries, wood and rich malts. When the beer is heated, the flavor impression of cherries and Christmas spices is increased sharply. A good substitute for mullet wine when warm.Taste is rich and filling - however, not the most complex fruit beer.

Wonderful and different. At 70c this is really something different. Cherry apple flavors with mulled wine aromas. This is pretty cool.

Warm tap @ kerstbierfestival Essen. Nice red pour with no head. Yum yum yum smell. Cloves and cinnamon and the hidden cherries. Taste is sweet and some sour with the perfect balance of spices. Thin and dry mouthfeel. I never would have thought I would like a hot beer this much. This was a lovely suprise this festival. Better then regular gluh!!.

Flaska (delad). Dracks kall. Hälls upp körsbärsröd med vitt bubbligt skum. Doftar körsbär och surt godis. Det här smakar jul: Ingefära, kardemumma, pepparkakor, citron och körsbär. Som glögg. Som en god glögg. Kryddig eftersmak.

750ml bottle @ #HPJ-13. Pours a dark ruby red with a pinkish head. Aroma is christmas spices, cherry, some caramel. Taste is fairly sweet. Christmas spices, ginger, clove, cinnamon, star aniseed. Mulled wine-like. Cherry and caramel. When heated, loses a lot of the flavor. Not as sweet, but not a complex either.

Rated when the beer boiled to 70 degrees Celsius as it says on the bottle. Good cherry beer. Good flavor and aroma. Good aftertaste Really great when you boil this beer. Do not really know if I should call this a beer but good was it to drink hot. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
