3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
<i> Tasted really hot. Would you believe it from me? </i> No head, red beer, clear. Pure Glühwein herbs & spices (cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom) – nothing else. Slightly tart taste, fruity, sweetish, and better than expected. Sweetness creeps in more and more as speculoos (hard gingerbread). Slick – oh, and warm. Well – as said, better than expected

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. (trade with papsoe) (drank at cellar temperature) Pours with a clear, deep red body and a small, reddish-white head. The aroma is cherry-ish with a evident touch of glühwein, cloves and almonds as well. The flavor is more on the sweet side, but there’s also a nice sourness and a spicyness that is subdued compared to in the aroma. Some almond as well. There’s dried fruits, mostly raisins I think, as well in both aroma and flavor. Medium body, a bit sticky in the mouth, but at least this one has a sourness to balance it slightly. Slightly sour finish with sweetness, and a little spicyness as well. Would like to try it heated as well, so I’ll have to look for another bottles I guess. A nice fruitbeer. (071205)

Richmond "industry" gathering. Medium red appearance. Aromas of cherry and spice. Flavor was, well, cherry and spice. Not much else to say here. Good though.

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.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light pink cover tops the clear dark ruby hue. Strong spicy aroma with dominating cinnamon. Obvious cherries as well, but nothing else that I can feel. Very, very sweet palate bursting with sweet cherry notes. The spices, overwhelmed by sticky juiciness and the considerable, very active carbonation do not suffice to the task. Biting palate. Needs more work.

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.
