R2k2 (292) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2013
Nice to drink a warm beer for a change. Complex aroma of krieks and gluhwein. And that’s how i have to define the taste as well. But nice to heat up on a cold winters day! Lekker om eens een warm bier te drinken. Complex aroma van krieken en gluhwein. Ook de smaak moet ik zo definieren. Toch wel lekker om ’s winters mee op te warmen.

Cuso (3783) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from bierzwerg.de. Red color with medium pinkish head. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, cinnamon, marzipan. Taste, tart cherries, vanilla, cinnamon, star anise marzipan. Tasted hot, surprisingly good beer.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear red with a fine, pink foam head. Interesting nose, definite cinnamon mixed with sweet cherries and mild gingerbread. Big sweet flavor with sugary cherries, some spiced cake, apples and cinnamon. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, sugary finish, a touch artificial, plenty more cinnamon, ripe cherries, some cake. Novel stuff, although I can’t say I’m crazy about the cherry-cinnamon combination.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
Clear red colour, brown hue, little to no head. Sweet aroma, spicy, cinnamon, gluh wine. Sweet flavour, spicy, cherry, cherry candy. Sweet spicy finish, somewhat cloying.
Very much a gluh wine character, but with sweet beer. Sweet and warming. Absolutely pleasant in a cold night. Wouldn’t want to drink a big bottle, but wouldn’t want to do that with gluh wine either. Better than expected.
(Draught -warm- from green plastic keg system @ De Baron, Eindhoven)

EithCubes (4623) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle by 04-2014. Drinking this at cellar temp. Nose is heavy dark cherry, sweet and wintery, can practically smell the snow! Icing and warming spices, a reasonable approximation. Ruby red body with a light pink head. Taste is sweet, sugar that sucks water right out of the gums, and the above-mentioned flavors (cherry is lightly puckering and sour). A little fizzy, medium body, nice glüh-ish aftertaste,

culchiem (2297) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2011
Draught at a Christmas market in Berlin. Served warm. Cherry in the aroma. Flavour is dry fruity with a dry peppery finish. Nicer than the regular glüwein.

SaintMatty (4679) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle - Served warm. Red in colour. Cherry and spices in the aroma. Rather sweet and ’commercial’ taste, but it’s perfectly drinkable and warming for the winter months.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Diese Variante des Krieks mit 25% Kirschen soll bei 65°C konsumiert werden. Bei wie viel °C ich es getrunken habe, kann ich nicht genau sagen, es war auf jeden Fall in einer angenehmen warmen, wenn nicht gar heißen Phase. Beim Öffnen der Flasche strömt einem ein unverkennbarer Geruch in die Nase: Zimt. So ist nach dem Aufwärmen auch der erste Eindruck, nach Zimt und fruchtig, aber nicht übermäßig süß. Wollig warm und weihnachtlich ist es als "Glühweinersatz" nicht zu gebrauchen, als Ersatz wär es viel zu schade, dieses Glühkriek ist in seiner wollig warmen Trinktemperatur ein absolutes Spitzen-Spezial Bier und MUSS probiert werden! Test vom 18.4.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,13,11,13,14,14 - 12,65

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Red & unclear color, no head. The beer was properly heated before I had it. Smell gives berries. Taste is not strong, and has cherries and almond as aroma. Quite nice, nothing extra special.
