yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Bottle, 75cl at the Belgian Embassy. It poured a slightly unclear, golden body, with a small, white head. Herbal, grassy aroma with a touch of garlic, leaving the malt in the far back. There’s some malty sweetness in the flavor, but it’s mostly like the aroma, herbal and grassy. The garlic is more evident in the mouth. Medium body. The finish has a nice bitterness. I’ve heard horror-stories about homebrew with garlic. Well, this one proves it is certainly possible to make a nice beer with garlic. What is really annoying is that I didn’t understand that it was garlic until the company representative told me so. Then suddenly all pieces fell in place. I figure a well-seasoned and well-garliced leg of lamb would be a nice treat with this one. Rating: 6-3-7-3-14-3.3. 080410

Bottle, at Oud Arsenaal. A golden one, unclear, and topped by a finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma has a nice herbal touch, with pale malts, sugar and citrus fruityness. Quite dry on the palate, with sugary sweetness, pale malt notes and a touch of citrus and bitterness. A bit sweet, but really nice anyway. 110429

330 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, golden body with a small, dense white head. Moderate aroma of malt and a hint of spices. Flavor is fruity, malty with a hint of spices. Well balanced, not particular sweet and nothing indicating the high alcohol level. I’m found of garlic, but had a big trouble identifying this flavor. Nice, but to anonymous.

OleR (4762) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2008
Bottle. Mostly lasting white head upon a hazy yellow-golden body. Distinct herbal aroma with some fairly sweet malts. Notes of acidolous fruits. Medium sweet flavors, wheats, and fruitiness from lemon and green apples. Some spicy/herbal notes from the garlic is lurking in the background. Medium body. Spices, dry fruits and a delicate bitterness in the finish.

Bottle@BlindTastingSession. Sweet citrus aroma. Yellow color, light hazy, white head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, hint of citric sourness, citrus, light herbal. Nice body, high drinkablility. Less alcoholic than one would expect from a 8% beer.

Skinnyviking (6733) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
High and lasting creamy off-white head. Hazy amber body. Alcohol dominated hoppy aroma, complex and spicy. The balance between hops, fruityness and alcohol in combination with the high carbonation and long bitter aftertaste makes this beer interesting.
