Taste and aroma much like a very plain and "silent" kriek. Not overly sour, not overly creamy, although cherries, cream, and almonds are present.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ah julöl med stor JUL! Bra arom, funkig som övergår till mer fruktig (hallon). Härligt färg med ett underbart skum som ligger som grädde i gommen! Smaken är mer fruktig en funkig fast på något sätt gräddig. Klockren, precis som en desert på aftons kväll.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Soft red, hazy with a creamy white cap. Faint peachy-cherry aroma, sort of timid and dilluted, not much maltyness at least. Quite nice medium full body, somewhat boozy cherries and an abrupt tanninic bitterness. Some sourness, some sweetness. Strange drink. Some cherries, but not really as in a cherry lambic, but more like a cherry milkshake (smoothed out). I guess you could get used to this, but right now the mouthfeel isn’t right either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fruity sweet aroma. The cherries needs time to show. Hazy red with frothy head. Sweet taste without really any point. Medium body, creamy texture & soft carbonation. I had expected some more cherries in both aroma & taste, & also some more deepness & elegance. Drink a kriekbier from Liefmans instead.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from 375 ml. bottle. Hazy, red colour with a big, fluffy white head. Sweet, artificial aroma with cherries, rice, raspberries and malts. A tart note. Lactic. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly tart. Definitely not for me - an odd experiment.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours a slightly reddish light brown, with a pinkish head. Aroma is fresh with notes of cherry and almond. Fizzy palate, very fresh mouthfeel. Taste is somewhat tart, but without unpleasant yeast notes. Short aftertaste, mainly cherry. Not shabby, but a little thin in regards to both almonds and cherries.
