18/I/14 - 25cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: X/2014 (2014-102) Thanks to Kraddel for sharing the bottle!

Note: heated on a gas stove, drunk warm, as intended. Seriously, I have no idea why one would promote this...
Clear ruby red beer, small aery head, unstable, bit adhesive. aroma: lots of cinnamon, cooked fruits, sugary, hint of lemon juice. MF: weird, warm beer is not a thing one gets used to easily. Taste: bit sweet, little fruity, sourish touch, bit lemony, lots of cinnamon. Hard to tell the cherry flavour... Aftertaste: little sour, lemony, spicy, cinnamon again. Meh.

25 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to Kraddel. Heated on a stove, drank warm. Bright pomegranate red with no much in the way of head, looks like cranberry juice. Smell is pure candy, cherry pie, lots of sugar. Taste is pure candy, white sugar, warm cherry pie, sweet spices, faint lemon. Not much in the way of carb. Pleasantly surprise, sweetened juice / candy basically. No artificial sweetner off-notes. Really enjoyed it.

Man kann dieses durchaus moegen, aber andererseits ist es in der Sauere zus auer und bietet zum Ende hin einen viel zu suessen Abschluss. Dazwischen ist es durchaus aromatisiert und erinnert in Punkten an Gluehwein. Schwer zu entscheiden, aber eigentlich gut unterm Schnitt.

Tried it warmed up. Cardboard and cherry aroma. Sour flavour. Bit of spice, not much, though.

I was heating this beer in a pot - developed a huge and soapy-foamy head which got bigger and bigger like a vulcano when I poured it into the - mug. Sorry guys, I didn’t want to risk my good glasses with hot stuff, I am tippsy enough the break enough good glasses by myself ;-) So I guess this beer has got a deep red colour with the big head already mentioned and medium to thin body. Aroma of this little sachets against moths. Taste sourness, sour berries, flowers, lavendel and sour morello cherries. There is just a big unpleasant sourness (and I love sourness when it is in a good way) combined with this flavour of moths killers. Awful but hopefully not unhealthy and not completly unenjoyable. Just nasty and unpleasant - like moths.

Abijen (1140) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a dark pink purple beer with a good pinky head. Smells incredible sweet, cinnamon and like gluh wine which I dont like. Tastes light sour, bit lemon, apple pie and some sweetness. Weird stuff. Thin body, watery texture and an average carbo.

(bottle, warm) pours a clear ruby colour with a quickly-diminishing pink head. aroma of heavy cinnamon, cherries and vanilla, with a hint of earth and nettles. flavour is mostly the same, heavy cinnamon and vanilla, quite sweet, with some cherries, black olives and custard. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

ShivanDragon (1253) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2013
roze/rood met redelijke roze kraag
aroma: rood fruit / kersen
smaken: redelijk zoet, matig bitter, licht zuur, stevig gefruit, kersen, kaneel, kruidig
medium body, matig zoet,

hhmmmm...kom er tijdens het drinken achter, na het etiket te inspecteren dat het een Glühkriek is... vandaar dat de smaken wat anders zijn...toch maar een keer warm proberen :(
