Nickls (1887) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Tap. Almost claret deep red wine an purple hue. Quite pretty. Nose is lightly acidic, nicely fruity, almost like a faint fruity balsamic quality as well. Flavor has a nice caramel touch, blueberry is clearly here, light lemon notes and rounds out with dark fruit sweetness. Medium to light body that’s slick.

rejtable (1434) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours grape kool aid, limited head and limited lacing. Nose is tart unripe blueberries. Flavours of blueberry, maybe some beets, tart and tanic. Tastes light sweet, medium sour. Mouth was light oily, acidic finish. Very tannic, like a dry red wine.

ClubGonzo (4240) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC @ The Christmas Tasting 2014. Pours what seems to be hazy blueberry juice; deep purple-hued blue body with a large creamy pink head. Great looks. Aroma is heavy, sweet blueberry and cherry notes, flanked by a dash of lactic sourness, lemon peel and hints of herbs, hay and almond essence. Taste is blueberries, almond essence, lemon peel, lime, straw, hay and hints of wood, cherries and herbs. Medium to full body (surprisingly enough), high carbonation. Very fruity and pleasant blueberry sour; this one has a lot of fruit character and body while still retaining a good deal of sourness. In fact, it’s pretty awesome. :-)

750 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a small head. Aroma of blueberries, wood, some saltiness and fresh gooseberry bush notes. Flavour of really rich tart blueberry notes, tart wood, sweetness, some pie crust and bitterness. Some vinegar. Full bodied and a warming finish with loads of tart berries. Good.

75 cl bottle.
Pours dark violet color with a large pink head. Raspberries and bilberries on the nose, some yeast, wooden notes, distant gooseberries too. Sourish berry notes, some wooden or oaky notes, earth, yeast and black currant too. Something kills the aftertaste pretty quickly.

laiti (5980) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
75 cl bottle @ tiong
as cold:
Aroma is tart with raspberries and bilberries. Flavour has tart berries, milky notes and berry juice. Weird – and not my cup of tea, I prefer plain English breakfast without milk or berry flavour.
as warm:
Very weird and very unusual, tickling palate. Perhaps this did not work as mulled wine after all.

tiong (4019) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
750ml bottle from Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop, Copenhagen @ Varjopikkujoulut

Pours dark reddish pink with a smooth light pink head. Aroma of raspberries, hints of blueberries, wood, tartness, some oaky notes and sourness. Taste is smooth, sweetish sour and slightly tart with some blueberries, blackcurrant and oaky notes. Finish is smooth, oaky and woody with slight tartness and loads of berries. Sweetish and sourish berry juice with loads of oak. Interesting.
