Hazy brown-reddish hue, with no head at all, sweet malty, with a cherry, pruney fruity nose, with a sweet and sour iron-like oxidation, oakiness accent, with some nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon spicy notes in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a malty, sweet black cherryish fruity character, with a pruney accent, some cloves and cinnamon spiciness, a subtle tartness, sweet and sour notes, with a woody oakiness, leading towards a malty, fruity iron cherryish finish.

Muddy cherry read with spices. I prefer this cold to hot but an interesting concept. Rather have the Quelque Chose. Page 281 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 338 out of his 500 Classic Brews to go. tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2007

From a 1997 vintage bottle that hey_kevin shared at a tasting. The body was dark red with very few bubbles in the glass. The aroma was clove, quality tobacco and obvious cherries. There was also some cinnamon spice. There was some light oxidation that enhanced the smell and taste. The taste was strong cherries with soft cinnamon and clove spice. A very nice friuit beer.

Nice dark red coloured with a small pinkish head. Stronger fruity cherry, herby aroma. Full body. Finish is fruity (cherries) with again some herby touches. Little tart finish. This is one of the better gluhkriek. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Cork dated 1998. Pours a reddish brown, almost the color of tawny port. No head, no fizz, no lacing. Ugly brown clumps of yeast. The aroma includes a hint of apple cider, but mainly strong complex cherry - not only the fruit, but also the pit and even the tree bark.
The flavor is even more complex with cherry (both sweet and tart), candied apple, cider vinegar, cinnamon, light brown sugar, and a good amontillado wine. The finish is tart and spicy, with yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, tart cherry, and lemon flavors.
Surprisingly fuller in the body. Very light carbonation, but honestly, its not even missed. When I lived in Suttons Bay, MI, my house was surrounded by cherry orchards. This beer reminds me of that. I could drink it forever. xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2007
medicinal sweet tea yecch aroma. red wine looks with rim bubbles. scarpy pimpled cork. cherry with tart over sweet flavors. flat, juice palate. drainpour. Hopefully most bottles aren’t like this, I’m not interested enough in cherry flavored drinks to find out. marcus (10473) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 7, 2007
This dark red beer poured with no head and a cherry aroma. The flavor is sweet cherries and spices. I tried it hot and cold - preferred the warmed version. This is not an "everday" drink, but is rather pleasant on a cold winter night. fonefan (49999) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2006
