Fin (7249) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
ZBF 2008 on the Saturday Some vanilla and hops on the nose of this nice looking golden/amber beer. Softness and creaminess combine with some sweetness and spices, but it’s the bitterness and fruits that start to push through and make this one quite a decent little beer.

joergen (20493) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a medium sized white ehad. Sweet and spicy flavour of fruits and dried fruits. Sweet flavour of dried fruits and caramel with notes of herbs, spices and fruits. The garlic is (luckily) not evident.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. [Trade with yespr, Thanks buddy] I am not quite sure I understand the use of garlic. Not that I don’t like garlic, but just not in my beer. Large wiped cream head that mostly lasted. Cloudy orange – pale golden color. Excellent lacework. Aroma of garlic / herbal, yeast and spice with notes of grain, grass. Over the palate a feel of harsh garlic which is a very strange experience and a first time for me. Medium bodied with an average carbonation, hint of alcoholic texture. Light blend of bitter and sweet flavor. Light garlic finish just like when you wake up the morning after a heavy dosage of garlic the night before.

I wonder if these ratings would differ if the garlic wasn’t advertised. Because I didn’t know about it until now, and I was rather impressed by the beer. It’s a light-bodied and bitter tripel with dangerous drinkability at 8 percent. It looks quite nice, a hazy golden beer with a fluffy white head that lasted until the end. Aroma was somewhat faint and hoppy. Flavor was quite bitter, grassy, only a touch of sweetness, and there was a fried, savory element buried deeply that I couldn’t place (maybe that was the garlic?). That didn’t distract me, because for a change I was enjoying a bitter tripel that managed to avoid excessive sweetness, coriander and orange peels. None of that same-old, but garlic instead, eh? The flavor was not as strange as the idea.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2007
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thick lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of garlic. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of spices (normal beer spices like coriander etc.) as well as garlic, leading to a dry bitter and spicy finish. The body is thicker than medium.
