3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep red colour with not much head. Aroma has cherries, winter spices, cinnamon, and the mix of spices remind me of Jägermeister. Taste has cherry and spices and it isn’t actually far from mulled wine. Medium body and high carbonation. When warmed up its actually even better and can substitute mulled wine nicely. Goes well with the season.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75 l bottle from Alko Hakaniemi, Helsinki. Colour is deep red with a head when it is no warmed up. When warmed there is no head left. Before warming taste is like cold mulled wine, except the strong cherry flavour. When warmed up tastes like your regular mulled wine. Cherry flavour comes through only when it is not hot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
SB Kalmar flaska. Kall. Fantastisk färg. Fin arom och mycket frisk körsbär. Ingen öl kanske. Bättre än vanlig sockerglögg.
Varm fylligare och sötare (naturligt eftersom kyla maskerar socker väl). Tips drick kall !
Duger istället för champagne.

From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy, and (intentionally) warm. Pours purple, with a medium pinkish head. Aroma is of cherries, pretty much only that. Body is tendentially light. Taste is sweet, no acidity. Finish is average. Nice experience with a warm weer!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Murky red color, scummy pinkish head. Cherry candy aroma. Fairly sweet flavor with cocktail cherries, fruity notes. Slightly cloying finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Too sweet. However, warming it up as recommended on the wrapping to 70C evens out the flavor profile, coming closer to glühwein. When warmed up, not bad at all.
