SaintMatty (5477) - 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 (10947) - 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.

Hansen (6794) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2010
Dark red. Has a ruby head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of cherries, soap, cinnamon, sugar, faint acid. Flavor is heavy sweet. Syrupy texture, astringent. Low alcohol, but still lots of aroma and flavor lifts the overall score.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle, warmed as suggested. Label says Premium Glühbier rather than Glühkriek, but it’s clearly the same thing. Red colour. Sweet spicy aroma like a Magic Tree car air freshener. And to my surprise this stuff is delicious. First impression is sourness, but it’s a Haribo style sourness rather than a beery one. Then there’s some typical commercial almondy cherry taste with some rather nice cinnamon spiciness. There was a hint of Halls cherry flavoured throat sweets. And Vimto, the long forgotten children’s cherry pop. And finally a curious vinegary impression of Heinz tomato ketchup. No dryness at all. And the warmth gave a rather satisfying emphasis to the taste and made up for the relative lack of alcohol. Pity I only had one bottle.

Defreni (2636) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2009
Flaske: Rød uigennemsigtig. Masser af julekrydderi i duften, smagen ligeså, indtil en svag kirsebær smag tager over. Meget sød med en lille snert af surhed. For sød og julekrydret.

onystrom (1321) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2009
Hazy red purple color with small head. Strong cherry aroma and flavor. Quite sour and acidic. Tasted cold...
