CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle shared by Travlr: Pours a clear deep golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some fruity esters. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet biscuity light caramel maltiness with a hint of peppery spice, but not a whole lot of garlic flavor. Finishes with a lightly sweet malty floral hoppiness. Could use a little more prominent garlic character, but its presence is pretty tasty.

BeerandBlues2 (10547) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, cookie, straw), light hops (herbal), and light esters (apple/pear) with notes of garlic and sugar. Flavor is average malt (bread, cookie, straw), light hops (herbal), and light esters (apple/pear) with notes of garlic and sugar. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a dry finish.

erickok (4099) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 17, 2011
Orange-brown light hazy body with snow white frothy head. Clove, hazelnut, ginger, earthy and very little bublegum. Quite nice and not standard Belgian tripel. Great lacing. Quite easy to drink with a nice full taste that balances pretty heavy sweets with just enough bitterness. Fine carbonation. This one was better than I expected. Fine sweet Belgian beer. Garlic isnít listed on my bottle and not found either. (75cl bottle)

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Slightly murky blonde, usual tripel with a decent white head. Some sweetness and caramel with a hint of fruit, garlis has given it a peppery strangeness. Bit thin on the palate.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a tall and slightly off-white foamy head. Lemony-fruity and slightly yeasty and peppery spicy aroma with a slightly wheaty background. Mildly bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Yeasty and slightly wheaty taste with distinctive notes of lemon and spices; a bit slim bitter-sweet and spicy finish. 14.III.11

txspartan (974) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2011
A tripel beer spiced with... GARLIC. Who came up with that? Itís brilliant with breadsticks. Bit odd on its own, though. Think it keeps vampires away?

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2010
Far as Iím aware, a first for me- beer spiced with garlic, although I have often thought as I munch a raw clove, this might just work....well, it does. Pale yellow with an uneven, thickly lacing, meringue-white foam. Aroma certainly has a chopping board note about it, but so well blended with a typically Belgian, jellied lemon and galangal softness you wouldnít identify it as garlic unless you knew it was there. Delicate and sherbety with a penny chew softness of gelatinous lemon, vanilla, lime, dung-speckled floweriness and biscuit. No alcohol discernible. Enjoyable, eccentric brew Iíll buy again if I see it, if only for the hilarious alcohol warning on the bottle...." DRINK MODERATELY BUT REGULARLY". Indeed.

dEnk (4162) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle @ home. Clear golden pour. Aroma is quite faint overall, some dusty malt, some fruit, some bread. Flavour is fruity, bready and with a sharp spicy sidenote, which is probably the garlic. Not a bad brew but garlic doesnít really fit in (this) beer. Still not bad though. Nice balance between bitter and sweet.
