0,75 l bottle kindly shared by yngwie. Misty brown body with a tanned rim. Cherry jam on the nose. Pungent fruity, cinnamon, raisins, dark fruits and cherries in the mouth. Medium to full body. Smooth and flatish. Pleasant finish. As a curiosity we tried a heated version. That was more acidic like an hibiscus tea.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours hazy deep reddish with a small white head. Aroma of cherries and cgerry candy, fresh and inviting. Thick, slick oily mouthfeel. Taste is sweet, fruity and meaty cherries, bordering cloying, but lands on the right and enjoyable side. Also tried this one warm, and the aroma was a lot more spicy, with cinnamon and other spices. Taste was light sweet cherries with a nice spicy addition, very nice

Nydelig duft av kirsebær. Rødbrun farge. Lite skum. Nydelig smak av kirsebær. Prøvd to varianter, kald og oppvarmet. Oppvarmede gir også mer duft og smak av krydder i tillegg til god smak av kirsebær. Nydelig. Takk til Yngvar for å dele denne opplevelsen.

Wspaniale piwo pachnace wisniami. Rozowo czerwonego koloru, bardzo czerwonego. Piana lekko rozowawa, wysoka i zbita i trzemajaca sie ponad kilkanascie minut. Serwowane w temperaturze pokojowej i do ogrzanego kieliszka. Niestety nie skusilem sie na podgrzanie do temp. 70 stopni, ale moze bylo by jeszcze lepiej smakowo. Slodkie ale milo i przyjemnie, szlachetny to i naturalny cukier pochodzacy z wisni. Wysycenie niczym w porzadnym wisniowym lambicku. Papier fajny i korek grzybkowy, firmowy. Wszystko fajnie wyglada, a na koniec metnosc i przyprawy. Jakby pieprzu odrobina i gozdzikow w dlugim owocowym finiszu

Was soll man sagen? Ob kalt oder warm - einfach spannend u d wundervoll. Süße Kirschen, saure Kirschen, etwas an Steinen im Hintergrund - wow. Mal sauer, mal süß, leicht - aber auch kernig. Wunderbar ausbalanciert und dabei noch unauffällig frech.

McTapps (3649) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
Drunken at an cold evening, with some light illness in the body and heated to 70 degrees Celsius. Well what can I say? It worked wonders to body and mind. Poured out in a orange-pink-red into the pot, got heated with some vulcano-look-a-like in the middle of the pot. Aroma of cherries and mild yeast. Taste of ripe cherries, apples seeds, straw and citrus. Very warming and tasty - enjoyed it a lot.

brnandersen (1838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2014
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.

Bottle sample at tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Served hot. Reddish brown with a huge head. Aroma of glühwein, cinamon and cherries. Sweet with flavors of wood, cherries, apples and green fruits, a bit spicy, pleasant tartness, quite tasty. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Great.
