jtclockwork (8018) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange. White head. Nose of peach, yeast, orange peel and dried fruit. Taste falls way short - lots of very old sitting around in the hot sun dried fruit, spicy hops, garlic and dried barley. Light to medium body.

Very light body, almost water. The gimmick here is that there are notes of garlic and onion, I dont taste anything. Not offensive however.

kermis (4796) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle shared with Deanso. Pours slightly hazy golden with white head. Aroma has spice, herbs, sugar and garlic. Flavour has pepper, clovers, fruit, caramel and light garlic overlapping into the finish. Medium carbonation and a pretty good balance considering the strangeness of the beer.

deanso (5080) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2011
33cl bottle from a work colleague shared with Kermis. Good fine white head. Very hazy blond pour. Interesting beer, hard to place. There’s sweetness and garlic in the after-taste. Interesting and odd at the same time

Countbeer (4317) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2011
Draught @ OBM’11: Regular white head on top of a clear yellow colorered beer. Smell fruits, grains, malts, herbs and a hint of gas. Taste fruit, gas, spices (spicy), bitter, hops, soap, herbs, wheat. Fruity bitter aftertaste. Low carbo, soft tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery texture.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Leicht süßer und würziger Geruch. Frischer milder Kräuterantrunk, Knoblauch ist weder hier noch sonstwo zu erkennen. Sehr weich, das Bier wirkt hier außerdem etwas zu mild. Im Abgang dagegen ist das Bier würziger mit wenig Kräutereinfluss, dies wirkt harmonisch, leider folgt dem nun hopfigen Part ein trockener Abgang. Test vom 4.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,8,9,11,7,10 - 9,75

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2011
750ml bottle shared by Travlr. Pale yellow, interesting oily head. The garlic doesn’t dominate, rather adds an interesting herbal earthiness. Quite unique, more balanced than I’d expect from a garlic beer. Floral, herbal, and interesting twist. Soft and creamy, a little odd.
