3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 isn’t listed on my bottle and not found either. (75cl bottle)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A tripel beer spiced with... GARLIC. Who came up with that? It’s brilliant with breadsticks. Bit odd on its own, though. Think it keeps vampires away?
