Far as I’m 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 wouldn’t 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 I’ll buy again if I see it, if only for the hilarious alcohol warning on the bottle...." DRINK MODERATELY BUT REGULARLY". Indeed.

dEnk (3834) - 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 doesn’t really fit in (this) beer. Still not bad though. Nice balance between bitter and sweet.

750 c&c shared by Marcus. Garlic? Pours hazy gold witha foamy off-wite head. Aromas of ripe yellow fruit, kandi and some yeast/spice. Med. body with foamy carbonation. Barely a hint of garlic, though somewhat peppery, so that might be it. Not bad at all.
