I find this beer to be one of my best beer experiences. The spice notes both warm and cold were wonderful. Not overpowering, but enough to tantilize my brain. The cherry notes are highlihgted by a sherry-like quality. Very low carbonation, but that did not bother me due to it’s wine characteristics. I found that heating in a bath of tepid water worked wonders for the flavor over the microwave. A truly remarkable beer!

Jaha ja, det här var inte dumt. Smaken bar toner av körsbär, nejlika och kanel, kanske även en viss känsla av juletid. Kroppen var juste och balansen satt där den skulle.

Birra natalizia particolarissima, in quanto va servita riscaldandola a 70° C. Il gusto in pratica è molto simile al vin brulé.

Flaske 0,75l fra Alko Muonio. Delt med flere under treff på Nerstranda 9 Apr 14. Rubinrød. Litt skum. Sterk & god kirsebæraroma. Behagelig kirsebærsmak. Kanskje litt ensformig - men et utmerket alternativ til Glühwein og uendelig mye bedre enn gløgg. Ble servert som anbefalt: Varmet opp til rundt 60 grader. Litt ble drukket uten oppvarming og hadde da et lyserødt skum og ble vel søt. Forbausende bra!

12.04.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:

Served cold:
7-4-5-3-11=3,0
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is very sweet fruity, sugar, lots of sweet cherries, caramel malts, berry skin, grass. Taste is very sweet, sugar, artificial sweet cherries, caramel malts, hints of cinnamon. Little bitterness, sweet slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Fair enough, to sweet.

Served warm:
Small creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet and spiced, berry skin, hay, paper, slightly fresh cherries, burnt caramel, sugar. Taste is slightly sour-ish fruity, sour cherries, berry skin, grass, burnt caramel, spices, sugar. Medium bitterness and acidity, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice enough.

All in all, the aroma is best when served cold, but it’s just too sweet. Taste is best when served warm, but the the aroma then falls apart.

Rune (8203) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 10, 2014
We followed the instruction on the wrapped paper of the 750ml bottle and warmed up half of the content to 60-70 degrees Celsius. Clear, deep ruby red body with a few bubbles at the surface. Moderate aroma of spiced cherry and vanilla. Taste of cinnamon, almond, grain, raisin and sweet berries, not overly sweet. Drinks quite well and gives me a Yuletide feel. Better warn than chilled (shared with friends at Finns place, Tromsø 09.04.2014).

@Tower of power beer session feat. Finn. Dark fruits and berries, dark plum coloured body with filmy kayer on top. Oranges, peel, cherry, raspberry, clove, nuts. Very nice warmth and would definitely prefer this beer instead of the traditional Norwegian gløgg. 9.apr.2014. Thanks for sharing, Finn.

Nästan röd i färgen med ljusrosa skum! Ska drickas varm och det smakade mycket körsbär och mandelmassa! Rolig "öl" :)

Rødlig farve med lite lyst skum. Lukt av jordbær, kirsebær og eple. Smak av jordbær, kirsebær og eple. Smak av jordbær, kirsebær og eple. Smak av jordbær, kirsebær og eple. I oppvarmet utgave smakte dette nesten som gløgg eller en godt krydret indisk chai med et sterkt innslag av kanel. Imponert av denne. Import.

Backlog, had this both warm and cold over a couple of years, nice addition to the winter-seasonals, definitely stakes it’s own claim.
