Hazy brown/red colour with a small head. Smells both cherry and christmas spices. Taste like a sweet christmas cookie with some cherry. A lot better when warm as recomended on bottle (70c). Also ok in room temperature.

Dark red/purple color. Cherry liqueur aroma. Taste is sweet cherries and glögg, with lots of citrus in the aftertaste. Somewhat sticky and sweet overall, but quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Basically, a low-abv cherry liqueur. Also has some spices in it (ginger? almonds?) and a light sour/fruit juice note that prevents it from being cloying. Good. Also tried it warm, and that unfortunately made it much worse. Works best slightly chilled.
