Skinnyviking (6936) - 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.

Fin (7351) - 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.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle. A golden beer with a big white head. The aroma and taste is malty and of hay and garlic. Medium body with a dry finish.

joergen (20649) - 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 (4154) - 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.

JoeinDahlem (1325) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2007
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.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle Blond, clear body. Creamy, white, longlasting head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Not very interesting. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Not exciting at all.
