Bottle served hot @ Kerstbierfestival 2006 in Essen, BE. Pink red color, clear with a pink fair red head. Aroma is cinnamon, vanila, anis and cherries. Flavor is heavy sweet cherry, spices, with a long duration. Flat and light alcoholic finish.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2009
25 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours murky purple with a small pink head. Spiced aroma with a distinct almond cherry aroma, very powerful. Sour and solid acidic with a mild spice note and a solid cherry almond note on the back of the nose. Somewhat sweet too. Tasted cold, I expect this to be lovely warm.

Ungstrup (34318) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a pink head. The aroma is sweet with notes of almond and cherries - and so is the flavor combined with notes of pebernødder. Nice.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2007
Bottled. Ruby red colour, not much head, but what there is is mainly pink. Flavour and aroma is cherry stones. Also quite artificial. Some slight earthy notes. Actually quite pleasant in my opinion.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle 25 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. hazy and opaque dark red with a small pinkish head. Intense aroma of cherries and almonds - perhaps a little cinnamon also? Medium body with sweet cherry accents, cinnamon, raisins and almonds with a lightly metallic edge. Tasted at room temperature would probably have been even better if hot. But a pleasant surprise. 070209

Bottle, room temperature. Clear deep ruby color. Aroma of intense cherry, cinnamon, almond. Taste starts with sweet cherry then acidic sourness. Hmmmm.

Leighton (18525) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - 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

Rötliches Getränk mit geringer pinker Schaumkrone. Geruch süß nach Kirschen und Gewürzen, genauso schmeck das Bier auch.
