yespr (30766) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2007
33 cL bottle thanks to Ungstrup. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Very herbal garlic aroma. Flavour is soft malty but mainly heavy garlic flavour. Soft finish, once I get past the garlic it is okay but the garlic aroma ruines this beer for me.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden coloured. Unpleasant sweaty, yeasty and spicy aroma. Sweet yeasty flavour with notes of the garlic.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle: Bubbly golden color with a white color head. The aroma is a pungent hoppy floral. The taste is a acidic floral with some harvesty grass flavor.

Gr0ve (2128) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
330 ml bottle. Cloudy pale golden colour. Medium-sized white head. Pungent rich Belgian yeast aromas. Notes of ginger, coriander and white pepper. Hints of banana and cloves. Garlic? Can’t really detect those. Rounded beer with a nice rich body. Residual sugars. Nice balance. Crisp bitterness in the background.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2007
Bleak unclear golden body, big foamy head with lacing. Herbs, pilsner malt, flowers. Light spicy and quite dry flavour, long finish.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2007
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a largeish, foamy head. Strange aroma of pea soup and onions. Smoothly malty, slightly herby-grassy and acidic flavor with some honey hints. More smooth and orange-fruity with yeast. Medium-bodied, lightly acidic and foamy-carbonated palate. A bit strange and acidic brew, no need to sample again.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Hazy pale golden in colour with a rather large white head. Refreshing with notes of spices, herbs and fruits. Not sure about the garlic. Somewhat bitter and dry finish.

larsga (6146) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
Medium white head. Hazy yellow body with lots of carbonation. Fruity, sweetish, herbal aroma with mealy, gingery notes. Sweet bitterish rounded fruity caramel taste with herbal notes. Somewhat spicy and peppery. Dry, herbal aftertaste. Not bad, but not great. (0.33l bottle.)

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
Soft round beer with a subdues spiciness. Garlic? A whiff of it, maybe, but this wasn’t much of a beer. Only if you need to keep vampires at bay.

thebeertourist (4774) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Orangey golden colour, hazy, small head. Herbal, almost medicinal aroma. Sweet flavours with spicy, medicinal notes. Not a favourite.
